To cover the reduction in ATR flying at DFW, AA has announced the following discontinuations:

ORD-TRI
DFW-AGS
MIA-SAV
MIA-RSW

AA will continue serving DFW-SAV and DFW/ORD-RSW

in addition, the discontinuation of ORD-YYC, DFW-FAY and LAX-BOI has been moved up to Jan-31st from Feb-9th

I wonder if this means the rest of the SJU hub will go then. Or were the remaining routes all flown by ERJs already? MIA-RSW/SAV is kind of surprising. ORD-TRI and DFW-AGS were longer thinner routes so not too surprising

Wow, I've been traveling between MIA-RSW since the early 90's. I can remember a time when there used to be 8 or so daily frequencies.

SJU is still ATR's, but the ones being returned from the leases are all DFW based. They are the closest ones to their lease expiration. The announcement that DFW is going all RJ/mainline I think keeps MIA/SJU relatively safe for now at least.

Strategic Chapter 11 move. As MAH pointed out on another post, AA can and props to DFW (and ORD if they wanted to) with another carrier that offers lower costs. RJs with 50 seats or less may be here now, but they will be gone as soon as AA can replace them or opt out of contracts at the airports.

Surprised by the MIA-RSW cut. I've taken that flight countless times and it's always full. I know full flights don't indicate profitability, but still a shame.

DFW-AGS

Wow 874mi in an old ATR. Must be desperate to get to DFW.

I believe the DFW - AGS flights are currently operated by RJ's.

The ATRs are perfect for SJU operations - I doubt they will be gone. Cargo capacity on the ATRs is much greater than the ERJs and the ATRs have better short field performance which is important, as several several airports served from SJU have runways under 6000ft.

As was said in the other thread, AA is playing hardball with the lessors since these ATR frames are getting older and probably can't be placed with another carrier for much $$$. We all know that AA doesn't want most of the ERJs long-term either, but at these mainland US airports, runway length is not an issue.

This is an RJ route, but the plane is needed to backfill the ATR's that are leaving DFW. Same with FAY and TRI. The MIA-xxx routes are ATR and ORD-YYC is a CR7

With the great speed of the AA/AE BK I must assume that there is already a plan in place for future regional/hub flying. Maybe, maybe not an AMR company...

Wow, that's corporatespeak at its finest!  

I should stop paying my bills, and when bill collectors call, I can tell them it's just a discontinuation!  



Inspiration, move me brightly!
