Just a quick question. Does anyone know how many ATR's American has stationed at DFW? I was back home this week, and noticed there were quite a few, and for some reason I was only thinking there were going to place a few there.

Anyways, thanks for the help.

If I recall correctly, they have 12 in DFW, 12 in MIA and 13 in SJU.

Since the retirement of the Saabs, there are a lot more ATRs at DFW than there were a few months ago.

None.... AA does not own or operate ATR's.  Big grin

Thanks a lot for that. I saw many taxi past while I was enjoying Terminal D, and a delayed flight to LAX

That is what got me wondering. I had forgotten they were retiring the Saabs...(also explains why I saw none...) and thus I saw a lot more there than I had seen over my Christmas break.

Some ATRs now in DFW came from SJU after AA downsized the SJU hub. AE pilots and FAs from SJU were offered transfers to DFW.

The number of cities the ATRs are doing out of DFW are climbing.... Ironically a lot of the cities being added are cities that the ATRs did post- 9/11 (as of April 1, AMA, CRP, HOU, GRK aka Killeen, LAW, LIT, LBB, MAF, SJT, SHV, and SPS). While it will never get back to the prior level of cities the ATR did before being removed from DFW, it's still interesting that a lot of the cities it did before hand were the ones it's re doing.

Also they are technically flown by Executive Airlines not MQ, but that's because all of the ATRs are under the Executive Airlines certificate (Executive Airlines is a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of MQ). The reason for not shifting the aircraft back to the MQ cert. had more to due to simplification of training and cost involved in it and cost of shifting the a/c to the MQ cert.
Even though transfers were offered, quite a few of the Executive Airlines SJU based crews just transferred to other bases and A/C around the system instead of going to DFW. Even though it's under a separate certificate, they are still MQ employees and can transfer back and forth between MQ and Executive Airlines. The only major difference is that Executive Airlines crews are over water qualified due to NA s cert. being an over water one and MQ s isn't.
Also only the ATR 72-212A (nee 72-500) were sent to DFW, All of the 72-200 are still in MIA and SJU..

Was there a particular reason for this?

Not as far as I know. Outside my pay grade. Maybe because they all have GPS's so if need be they can do the RNAV SIDs and STARs but other than that not a clue.

I've seen more than just the -212As here recently. A few of the -202s, -210s, -212s are here including N4AE.

I read on another post that AE AT7 flying will pickup in SJU in the coming months, if that is true; will ATR's be allocated in a special way and if so, how so?

Executive Airlines (American Eagle's San Juan based American Eagle) has moved 13 ATRs from San Juan to operate out of Dallas. These aircraft are and will continue to operate on the Executive certificate.

This was done partly due to the parking of all Saab 340s, and the resulting supply drop which followed.

Are there still any 212A's based in MIA?

As far as I know, they've only been operating 210s/212As for quite some time. I believe the original -202s they had may have been upgraded to the 210.
