Does anyone know how well or poorly the new American Eagle flights from MIA to CHS and TYS are doing?Also will Miami eventually become an all regional jet hub for American Eagle?

Quite well, especially CHS which gets a second daily in April.

No. The props are absolutely necessary for short hops to the Bahamas, Key West and Ft. Myers, where the RJs are either 1) inefficient for such a short distance; 2) cannot land fully loaded due to short runways; 3) present significant cargo carrying problems.

We will see OW replace the ATRs with another prop plane before RJs.

Any ideas what prop they would go with? The Q or the ATR-600 are the front runners I would assume.

I don't really think they are planning anything right now. The ATRs have plenty of life in them.

The ATR-600 has the advantage of familiarity, but I'm not sure if they'd what to replace the current ones with something that's more of a reengineer than a new plane. On the other hand, I would see BBD jumping through hoops to secure a DH4 order from AA after the recent CR7 order. One distinct advantage I see for them over the ATR is the option (whether or not they act on it) of bringing prop service back to the cold weather hubs. Is the scope limit on 70-seaters only for jets? because alot of sub-1000 mile routes out of ORD that could use the extra capacity would free up the limited number of CR7s they have for longer ones. There was a recent thread about UA not being able to fit the Qs given the ramp layout, but given the way G is much more organized than F, I think it wouldn't be as much of an issue for AA (or if they dump RP once their contract is up, they could use the gates they'll be using on L)
and now I realize how much I just wrote so I'll stop it there and let this go back on topic  blush

- Speaking about MQs MIA flights, AA only has one daily non-stop MIA - IND and it is an ER4 operated by MQ. 888 miles in an RJ. That is not necessarily fun at all. I remember when AA had 2+ daily non-stops MIA - IND on Mad-dogs.

MIA-IND has been 1x S80, 1x 738, and 2x ERD, but never 2x on mainline.

I think IND and PIT will go to mainline in the winter based how rapidly AA is expanding. IND and PIT are the two largest of the RJ markets.

The APA Scope clause allows 43 large turboprops and 47 CRJ700s for all practical purposes. Eagle presently operates 39 ATR72s, and has orders to bring it from 25 CR7s (present fleet) up to 47 CR7s in about 18 months.

It was 6x daily at one point, before an RJ shortage. Hopefully it will return to that.

MIA-CLT is a major business market for banks.
