I know for a short time American Eagle operated a flight between Springfield,IL and Springfield,MO. Continued to ORD and DFW after the Springfield stops. Only one I can think of. This was in say mid-late 90s.

I can't think of any such cases off the top of my head. Oddly enough, the scenario where New York, once having the name "New Amsterdam", was the only thing I could think of that otherwise may have complicated existing JFK-AMS runs.
Why they changed it, I can't say...I guess they liked it better that way.

Quoting Doug_or (Reply 4): Has there ever been any kind of service to a city in the provence of Ontario to ONT?
AC serves Sydney, Australia and Sydney, Nova Scotia (YQY), but it will be a long time before there's nonstop service between the two. The airport serving Victoria, B.C. is also in the suburb of Sidney (spelled with an "i").
Until AC dropped MAN, they served two Sydneys, two Londons and two Manchesters.
AC also serves St. John's, Newfoundland (YYT), Saint John, New Brunswick (YSJ), and Fort St. John, B.C. (YXJ).

Do similar-sounding cities, like Greensboro and Greenville, count?
Continental Lite once flew GSO to GSP nonstop... Gordon Bethune joked about it as the "Greensboro to Greenville route" in the book From Worst To First. (The route didn't last long under his watch.)
Also, AmericanConnection once flew to both LAF and LFT from STL. Naturally, there were quite a few screwups. (Eagle still serves LFT from DFW. As for LAF, it's another victim, along with BMG and HUF, of cheap IND fares.)
I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.
