Not earth-shatterning news, but nonetheless a good addition for the Florida Panhandle and Gulf Coast, and for AA's Chicago hub. This is the return of Eagle service to this market after the route was discontinued during the fuel spike.

A good compliment to the United Express service to Chicago, plus the existing 6x daily Eagle flights to DFW and 2x daily Eagle flights to Miami soon to start.

Schedule:

AA3855 ORD 1100 PNS 1305 ER4 SatSun
AA3858 PNS 1330 ORD 1555 ER4 SatSun

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if this was back up to daily in fairly short order.

It's a little unusual for AA to launch a route like this as weekend only service. To some extent, they may be doing this just to spite UA, though it would be odd for AA to make the effort for such an insignificant route.

It would be nice if one of them (UA or AA) would get this service up to daily.

Daily would certainly be nice, however is this flight long enough it would take weight restrictions?

Doubtful. The listed range of the ER4 is 1600+NM

PNS to ORD is only about 1000-1100 Miles or about 875-1000 NM. well within the range

ORD-JAX - about 70 nm longer - takes pretty nasty weight restrictions from time to time.

I would imagine that is due to some nasty bouts westbound with the Jetstream. Jax is 300 NM east of PNS. PNS is almost straight south of ORD.

No - it's ORD-JAX (not JAX-ORD) that takes restrictions.

But AAdvantage fliers can double the miles on their new Chicago-Pensacola flight.

Can JAX support mainline equipment to ORD on AA? i know they do it on UA but its only like 3x a day. I heard this is a largely underserved route, and i think mainline would work fine

Was there a mail route or something?
that doesn't make sense from a seasonality/heading argument

I think it's a weather/alternates problem. If they need alternates for JAX, the best case is MCO/SAV, and those are both a fair distance from JAX. At ORD, they have a lot more closer choices.

If that's the case, then PNS has VPS, and MOB within 40 miles.

Distance is only half the battle, though. How often is the weather materially different at those three airports?

Quite often. if you are talking about the summertime thunderstorms..
In the winter the fronts, unless a large storm, move west to east affecting MOB first.
Either way, the distance is well in range of ORD, and if neither looked good. there are tons of options to pull up at, such as Montgomery or Birmingham.

Interestingly, it's not the summertime storms that tend to cause the problems on ORD-JAX - largely for the reason you've alluded to (that they move through VERY quickly). It's the long, soaking rains that tend to come in March and April - and I think PNS gets those too. That said, I don't know that that's reason enough to say that ORD-PNS won't work. Unless you have rotten luck like me, I don't think it's a problem that often.
