In addition to seasonal ORD service, AMR will add year round DFW service.

Awesome! I has wanted to visit Badlands National Park this year and it will be so much easier being able to go via DFW! Too bad it doesn't say what the schedules are...I hope the timings of the flights will be midday-ish.

Excellent news! Glad to see DFW with a link to the Dakota's.

If this service does well, look for a DFW-FAR flight.

It's great to see AA re-enter some smaller markets in the Dakotas and Pennsylvania this year.

Maybe next year they will pick another pair of regions to expand to.

Im actually very surprised AA doesnt fly DFW-FSD. DFW-FAR might be harder, but they could pull it off.

When you throw in markets like CRW and SAF, they've picked a nice range of cities in the past 18 months to two years.

It's sort of funny, as AA (rightly) catches a lot of flak for the lack of expansion overseas. While these Eagle routes aren't as risky as sending a 777 to DME or DEL, it's nice to see a good number of new cities from Eagle.

Now that they started ORD-FSD, DFW-FSD seems liek it would be the next in line.

As I read the press release, I laughed to myself. This is so typical of AA.

AA is so adverse to taking risks and they try to avoid it. However when they do take a risk, if it successful (like the RJ expansion from DFW/ORD/MIA to midwestern/southern/southwestern markets) they follow it through completely.

The fact that cant seem to make PVD work from anywhere is nauseating. They should be able to make PWM and MHT work too.

It has been an eternity. The consultants said that FSD should be looking at DFW service to start this summer, but who knows. I was very surprised about this news, especially since FSD is the larger market, but possibly for Black Hills travel? We are literally throwing money at them for FSD-DFW.

Is Eagle currently flying ORD-FSD? I know they were doing it a few years back, but I thought they dropped it.
Great news for RAP, I don't think AA or AE have served RAP before. I like the idea of a n.s. to DFW, great connections for the south and Mexico. I hope it sticks around for a while.

FSD-ORD starts April 6th with 3x Daily Flights with ERJ-145 on 2X and 1X on the ERJ-140.

Wouldnt mind seeing a DFW-CRW once our runway extension is complete next year.

Wouldn't that be a little bit long for an ERJ-145? Then again someone correct me if i'm wrong. I think we would see a FSD-DFW flight before FAR-DFW easily, but who knows.

Is the new RAP service on American Eagle or American Mainline?

That's what I figured, but you never know since it would be Black Hills tourist that it wouldn't be MD-80, but I would doubt AA would do anything like that. So I'm assuming this is year round service unlike RAP-ORD service, right?

Excellent news for RAP! I got stuck just outside of Rapid City when my car broke down on a long road trip. Of course, ignorant me thought it would be boring as hell waiting for it to get fixed, but I actually ended up really enjoying the town, and would consider going back through there on another road trip if I had a chance. I also saw in the schedules once that UA operated a daily A320 on RAP-ORD not too long ago, and I don't know if that's still the case, but I thought that was cool. Beautiful town.

I really hope/wish that AA would give BOI-DFW (or perhaps BOI-ORD) another try...maybe not in the next year, but sometime in the next 3-5. They now have the CR7s with the first class cabin, and CO proved that there is something of a market between Boise and Texas (on a 4+ hour RJ flight no less)... at least 3x daily flights worth.

With the recent discovery of oil in the BIS and MOT area, I was always surprised that one of the Texas carriers (AA or CO) didn't start a direct service to that area from DFW or IAH respectively. When I worked for CO quite a lot of people transited through MSP to get from IAH to BIS or MOT. It was all oil industry traffic. Perhaps there was a lot but just not enough traffic to justify a direct.

From most accounts, the PVD-DFW flight was very popular, but the low fare competition to points beyond DFW (LAX, SAN, etc.) dragged the yields down. That was a few years ago now and fares have come up a bit and fuel down, so maybe its worth a re-look. The potential a PVD-MIA offers seems to be worth a look too. PVD, like most of New England offers great leisure demand to both Florida and the Caribbean - both destination resort and cruises. The PVD market also has some decent sized populations of Dominicans, Guatemalans (there is a GUA consulate in Providence), Venezuelans, Puerto Ricans, and Colombians. Just 1 PVD-MIA flight would also provide good feed into an already strong MIA hub. And the best part for AA - without NK, B6 or FL in PVD, there is ZERO low fare competition to MIA and the beyond markets available via the MIA hub. I'm also sure, like every other airport these days, PVD would throw in some fee waivers or whatever to lessen the risk of returning to the market.

This is kind of funny FSD was begging Frontier to come to town throwing money at them like crazy but they go to SUX and it fails and bad. They plead with American for DFW service they blow them off time and time again then add ORD to FSD while they strengthen their ORD operations. Yet Delta before and after the merger with Northwest has been treated like the redheaded step child they add flights and add destinations but get slapped in the face until the merger with Northwest the favorite airline in town. I guess United is smart they never started the Dulles flight they have been begging for so the airport can just drop you like a log after they get what they want. I do find it strange though FSD does have the largest population in the region until you reach OMA or MSP it has tons of fortune 500 company's doing business in town and lots and I mean a lot of banks having huge operations there and there legal HQ's there to like Wells Fargo, Citi, TCF, Great Western Bank, First Premier Bank / Premier Bankcard, Home Federal Bank, HSBC to name a few and there are about a dozen more that are considered larger to medium in size as well as a ton of smaller banks. I would think those business travels while provide better yields then some summer travelers to RAP.

Seems like Eagle's foray into small markets from DFW has been very successful. I bet we could see even more cities added to the mix in due time..

HRL, DRT, DRO, ASE, FLG, PRC, and perhaps even the likes of ECP, MYR, CRW, BOI, GEG, YEG, or cities in Montana could do well.
