American Airlines today applied to offer daily ATR-72 service between San Juan and Valencia, Venezuela. Proposed schedule:
AA 4898 SJU 1700-1903 VLN AT7 Daily
AA 4899 VLN 0700-0949 SJU AT7 Daily
American Airlines applied in 2006 to begin daily Miami-Valencia service. The application is still pending Venezuelan government approval and AA still wants to start this route. But it appears that AA maybe think they'll be able to get SJU-VLN approval in the mean time. SJU-VLN could be a strong market to compliment MIA-VLN service, if the latter ever gets approved, and I can definitely see AA operating both routes alongside each other.

Interesting development, the venezuelan goverment is a tricky one to predict. AA has been trying for the longest time to get additional frequencies to operate JFK-CCS daily, but they have been unsuccessful. Very smart move though.
