American Eagle RJs To The Caribbean (MIA-LRM)

American Eagle's first RJ service to the Caribbean (the Bahamas isn't the Caribbean) is launching on April 5th. American Eagle will offer daily ERJ-145 service between Miami and La Romana, replacing current 2x weekly 737-800 service, as well as the to-be-discontinued ATR service from San Juan.

AA 3584 MIA 1305-1520 LRM ER4 Daily
AA 3590 LRM 1555-1835 MIA ER4 Daily

I don't really foresee this becoming common. La Romana is an extreme niche destination with minimal demand, and a privately owned airport, to which I believe AA's service, the only scheduled service from anywhere in the United States, is privately backed. It is only 70 miles from Santo Domingo.

Not to mention the most important thing: because the plane can hug the chain of islands/airports from Florida to the Bahamas to the Turks & Caicos to Haiti and the D.R. into La Romana, a non-overwater-certified Eagle RJ can fly it.

I personally don't foresee RJs becoming common for AA in the Caribbean, either.

I don't know, there might be a couple more opportunities for ERJs from MIA, especially in light of the continued draw down of the Eagle operation at SJU. A couple possible routes I thought of are;

MIA-Tortola 1128 mi.
MIA-Virgin Gorda 1138 mi.
MIA-Mayaguez 989 mi.
MIA-Anguilla 1221 mi.
MIA-Nevis 1282 mi.

Only MIA-MAZ is actually possible on the RJs, which need to hug coastlines. Any routings outside of Hispanola/Puerto Rico route the plane too far north of hugging island chains.

More viable would be islands like Cayman Brac or Grand Turk, but at that close distance you just use an ATR.

How about MIA-DOM, or is that too far overwater?

MIA-CZM? A MIA-BZE RON might work....maybe MIA-MID....jump the pond at the Yucatan Channel.


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I wonder if AA had a 100 seater if they could make it work in some of those longer segments from MIA to the ex-ATR destinations.

Does DL have special equipment on the CR7s that allows them to operate ATL to BZE and RTB?

Unlikely- runway lengths (& types):

Tortola TUPJ Rwy 07/25 4640'
Virgin Gorda TUPW Rwy 03/21 2530' - dirt
Mayaguez TJMZ Rwy 9/27 4990'
Anguilla TQPF Rwy 10/28 5420'
Nevis TKPN RWY 10/28 3980'



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

DL operates CR9 to BZE.....I believe the are over water equipped.
