AA cancels dal-lax flights but it will add another flight from love to lga and not change dal-ord. They just signed a long term lease for the east concourse with 3 gates so it looks as they are staying...But how long beofre eagle takes it over with their new crj 70 seater?

AE won't take over with the CRJ-700..... Only 56 seats or less are allowed on DAL-LGA and DAL-ORD. Why would Eagle put a limited commodity like the CRJ-700 on this route if they couldn't maximize the seats?

In all honesty, I think the low loads may have something to do with advirtising. I noticed that when the DAL flights first started, American did some advirtising. Now, I haven't seen an AA DAL ad in a long time. I think people might have just forgotten about the service.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

First LAX gets cut. Next to fall will be LGA and/or ORD. Either Eagle will fly all of this or it will not be flown by AA at all.
But hey, they did what they wanted to do. They managed to run Legend out of business. Actually, they could have succeeded without going thru all this....if left alone Legend's business plan pretty much ensured that they would not succeed.
One other thing folks fail to think about...despite the Wright Amendment (or the Jim Wright-American Airlines Protectionist & AAnti-competitive bill, as I prefer to think of it)...WN does carry a lot of DAL-LAX traffic.
Folks are shrewd enough to go DAL-ELP and then ELP-LAX or DAL-ABQ and then ABQ-LAX. And despite the lure of AAdvantage miles.....the payoff available from WN is hard to beat.
Two round trips DAL-LAX, if booked on the internet (which is the best place to book illegal connections) will get you a free round trip anywhere on their route map.

AA's flights from DAL to ORD/LGA/LAX were in response to, the now defunct Legend Airlines. As you all know Legend operated DC9-30's in a 2 x 2 business/first class configuration with PTV in all seats. AA configured a couple F-100's with 56 seats in a 2 x 2 configuration to rival that and essentially squash Legend. AA has the "brand name" and could offer these fare a little cheaper because they are an, obvioulsy, larger company.

The Wright Ammendment may help AA but WN doesn't seem to mind it either. A Southwest spokesman said in the Dallas Morning News that the law's abolishment was not a high priority for them. Once they bought out Muse Air, they owned Love. They would prefer to keep it that way.
