AA DFW-EZE Loads Question

Hello!

I was wondering what the loads have been for DFW-EZE on AA? I am just curious because I am flying out with them this week and they are sending me out on a 777. I could not imagine why there would be so much demand on that route but I might be wrong.

I know AA covers EZE from Miami with 777s, but I thought DFW was always a 767.

DFW-EZE has always been quite the well-performing route for AA. It was, among a few others, recently upgauged from 763 to 777, a well-needed changed. MIA-MAD was another 763>777, as well as ORD-BRU for the summer.

Thats what I thought too.

But Ive been proven wrong. DFW-EZE hasnt had much trouble filling the F cabin this last Northern Winter. It remains to be seen how it will preform in the Northern Summer.

DFW-EZE/GRU, MIA-MAD/SCL, and ORD-BRU were all upgraded for one reason. Despite everything, premium loads have been rising on the above routes. They have all proven themselves star preformers on a per flight basis to join the ranks of MIA-LHR/EZE and DFW-NRT/FRA.

MIA-MAD/SCL

I checked AA.com and no upgrade has been posted for SCL. Still showing 763 on May 1st. SCL-MIA route. Any comments?



AA will Rise Again!

I did a random search for a July trip to SCL and AA.com is showing a 777 operating AA957 MIA-SCL and AA912 SCL-MIA.

While I do not work in scheduling, maintenance can be an underlying factor in equipment type re-assignment/temporary upgrades or downgrades. At any given time there can be a number of major (and minor) modification programs for aircraft. Given that the 763 fleet is getting a "new pair of wings" (winglet mods) in KC, there may have been a need to switch equipment to cover the maintenance schedule. (Saw N389 in ORD yesterday...beautiful!!)

Also, many times AA Cargo and the marketing department influence the type of equipment used on certain routes. Sometimes people overlook that $$ from cargo down below is not always directly related to the # of passengers in the cabin.

Take care,

A little follow up on my question. Not only were my round trip flights completely full, all flights to EZE were full on the days I flew. Incredible. Although I cannot say the same about my experience on American for the route.

A question in line with this, are all AA 777's configured with the same number of seats or do they have some with high density layouts, where I'm going with the question is does their 777's automatically mean that hugh a jump in pax capacity?

Thanks

Ive flown to EZE 3 times on AA. Once from MIA and twice from DFW roundtrip nonstop. All flights I took had 100% loads in all classes.

I would not be surprised. Aerolineas Argentinas does not have a very good reputation and is not part of any alliance.

When I flew AA from DFW to SCL, the 767-300 had about 20 in coach in April. I was sitting (actually stretched out) in a row with nobody else from one window to the other.

LAN Chile has a good reputation and provides strong competition to American plus Oneworld miles..

In terms of pax loads, DFW-SCL is extrodinarily seasonal. The loads are excellent in the Southern Summer, and awful in the Southern winter. However, the real reason this flight exists is cargo. Chilean produce is taken off the SCL-DFW flight and trasnfered onto the first of two DFW-NRT flights.

They are amazing! I took them from LAX to SCL. Excellent service.

Thats true. AA is very strong in Argentina. They have flights from EZE to major O&D markets with MIA and JFK, as well as to the 2nd largest single airline hub in the world with DFW.
