Wow!! I think a certain someone will be VERY excited to see this! It is very exciting to see AS continuing to expand its SAN presence. WN has not shown the airport much LUV lately, and it seems carriers like NK and AS are acting accordingly!

I don't think SAN-LIH comes as a surprise to anyone, although I wouldn't have expected it to start daily. Unlike most of AS's California-Hawaii routes, there is no history of service on the route. IIRC AQ flew the route very briefly before its demise, or had announced the route but never had the chance to bring it to fruition. Either way, I don't doubt San Diego's ability to support such service. Will it be a year-round service? If so, daily at the daily frequency? Also interesting to see SAN get LIH before KOA. I believe every other gateway to Hawaii except SEA saw KOA come online before or at the same time as LIH. I don't doubt that SAN-KOA will be coming soon - perhaps in conjunction with another SAN addition  .

SAN-BOS is very interesting to see. B6 is firmly established on the SAN-BOS route, having knocked longtime incumbent AA off of it shortly after commencing service. If there wasn't room for two players before, will there be now? I see AS has opted for a daylight eastbound flight, it looks like this is more than just an aircraft utilization tool. AS is arguably stronger than B6 in the SAN market (B6's attempt to expand from SAN was VERY short-lived/unsuccessful, unlike AS), but B6 is obviously much stronger in the larger BOS market. That said, BOS seems to be unusually strong for AS in terms of stations east of the Rockies, having not just catered to SEA flights but also an uninterrupted PDX service. One thing is for sure: AS is becoming bolder and bolder these days - it isn't afraid to compete, as we saw with recent additions like PDX/OAK/SJC/SAN-HNL (against HA), PDX-ORD (against UA), etc. Of course, they still add niche routes like SEA-SAT, SAN-MCO, and SAN-LIH as they see fit.

You're right. I think WN is more in "LUV" with FL at the moment.
Thev'e been stagnant in SAN lately. It looks like AS is striving to be #1
in SAN with NK following. Hopefully the BOS route will somehow send a
wakeup call to Jetblue.

Irrelevant since AA left the route years ago. Compare AS to B6. Those are the players in the market non-stop.

Hey! I didn't think this would be released until tomorrow!!!! (At least I don't have to get up at 5am to try to break the story!)

WOW! I figured we'd get one new route (out of the 3 promised, with SEA-SLC being the first one announced) but to get 2 of the 3 is fantastic! I think we can now officially call the San Diego Experiment a success!  

I'm not really surprised at either route as they were both on the top five of my list but, as has been pointed out by 'snow, I had expected KOA to be the next Hawaiian destination added. But maybe SAN-Kauai is the next biggest market after Maui and Oahu... (Something tells me AS has done their homework and the selection of LIH was not by the flip of a coin.) And I do know that there are a lot of ties between San Diego and the Garden Isle!

One other quick thing I wanted to mention. Tomorrow (Thrusday) is the 3-week deadline that was "promised" for the 3 new routes to be announced. Please AS, my nerves can't take this waiting 'til the last minute!  

I have to let things soak in a bit now. (In a good way!) I have a feeling I'll be back on this thread soon!

P.S., Mahalo to Alaska for this great vote of confidence in SAN!!!!!

As far as # of nonstop destinations, AS is a VERY solid #2 (behind WN with about 18 cities.) BOS and LIH take AS to 12 nonstop destinations from SAN! (And why do I have a feeling they're not done yet...?)

AQ flew their round-robin flights to LIH and KOA (from SAN and SNA) for about 3 months in 2008, before shutting down. And the reports were that those flights did well; it was the overall op's that failed.

I (as I have posted many times) thought we might see a split flight at first, maybe 4x weekly to KOA and 3x a week to Kauai in order to get both islands served asap. But I would imagine AS has determined that the LIH-route will support daily year-round service, and, I expect, so will KOA when they get a chance to add that route. (I personally know a LOT of people in the San Diego area with ties and/or roots on Kauai and who travel there OFTEN!)

I've also got to add that I finally got a look at the schedules and I am even happier than I was an hour ago. I was afraid that the BOS flight would end up as a red-eye but AS has given us an airplane for the whole day and this schedule can't miss:
Dep SAN 9:30am - Arr BOS 5:55pm (flt 768) Daily
Dep BOS 6:55pm - Arr SAN 9:13pm (flt 769) Daily Absolutely perfect; the business travelers will flock to these flts!

And the Kauia times are also perfect, with a 9:55am departure from SAN and a 1:05pm arrival in Lihue.

This just keeps getting better and better...

Unless Andrew intended the "other" (SLC is a new market, LIH and BOS are not) definition of new markets, these would make 2 and 3. It was stated in the conference call that there would be 3 announced and then that would be pretty much it for next year.

Unless of course..."pretty much it" means 1 or 2 more announcements pending.

My take on what Andrew said was that there would be 3 new routes (= 3 new markets, = 3 city-pairs being connected) announced within 3 weeks, and that ("as of what we know now") would be it for 2013.... And today is 3 weeks since Andrew made his comments.

Also, this would jibe with the a/c delivery situation which ends up (as of now) being a net gain of 3 new a/c next year. And these 3 new announced routes -- SEA-SLC x2, SAN-BOS, and SAN-LIH -- will take exactly 3 737s.

A couple of additional thoughts. Andrew was apparently speaking of mainline so who knows what we might also see from the Horizon unit next year? Also, next year's net a/c gain of 3 is predicated on 3 older a/c leaving the fleet; I would say it's quite possible that if AAG really sees some more routes that they want to start in 2013, those a/c retirements could be delayed. (It's certainly happened before...) So I'm not completely ruling out the possibility of more mainline growth next year... if the conditions are right.

BOS is interesting, as it goes head to head with B6. I do however believe that there's room for two carriers on the route.

Competition is always a good thing for the consumer. Ideally what I hope happens is that the route matures and can sustain 2 carriers. Personally, I hope B6 triumphs as I think their on-board product is much better than AS and I much prefer A320's transcon than 73G/8/9ER.

Wow! Looks like SJC is quickly becoming a distant afterthought to SAN as a new focus city. I'd hoped for SJC-BOS for the "nerd bird" traffic.

As others stated, I didn't exactly fall over in shock at SAN-LIH given AS's Hawaii and SAN buildup.

I wonder if AS will consider trying SAN-AUS then, or perhaps SAN-FLL.

Does AS have plans to add any more SMF-Hawaii routes? Seems like SMF-OGG is hanging in there (but SMF-GDL is gone, I believe) but SMF doesn't seem to be enjoying the same Hawaii expansion as the likes of SAN and BLI.

I can't speak for B6 since I've never flown them, but I think an AS 738 is a fine domestic product. I flew SJC-SEA yesterday and AS was spot-on. Nothing spectacular - only one cup of coffee, but plenty comfortable, on-time, efficient, friendly crews, etc. I've done AS trans-con several times and it is a plenty fine product that can hold its own with any domestic product in the world IMHO. At least an AS 738 or 737-900ER can make it non-stop every time, unlike B6's A320s.....

Good news for SANFAN i hope BOS goes well! AS clearly has some interest in SAN now.

SAN-BOS should be interesting and intersting for AS to test the waters on a very different type of route. I hope they can make it work, cool to see them on this route! Is this the only transcon they operate not involving a hub besides LAX-DCA? (DCA which is kind of a unique market anyway)....should be a great experiment maybe they will add some more SAN flights if they can build a nice following.

Hawaii Tourism Authority data indicates San Diego residents have a slight preference for Kauai over the Big Island. About 3,000-4,000 more San Diego MSA residents visited Kauai last year than KOA/ITO. But it is a close enough number that adding another island from SAN would also probably make sense in the future.

Absolutely! I too prefer B6's product over AS. However - I still believe that there's room for two carriers on the route. Heck, in it's heyday, SAN-BOS supported much more service than the current offerings.

I'm just waiting for either AS, or AA to begin SAN-FLL/MIA. That's a big hole missing for San Diego.

American Airlines has only token interest in Boston...serving it minimally. Alaska knows that AA's days of launching new routes simply to drive competitors off are LONG GONE.

It's not a 'feeder' route by any means...strictly point-to-point. No one will fly SAN-BOS and then hop on another plane unless it's a Europe-bound one. And no one going Boston-San Diego leaving at 7pm will do anything once they get there except go to their home or a hotel room and fall asleep. There aren't any onward flights to feed at that late hour.

Alaska has a deserved reputation as a 'premiere' carrier whereas JetBlue certainly doesn't. There's room for them both, and Alaska can rest assured that no other carrier has the financial wherewithal to combat them or JetBlue.

This route will belong to these 2 carriers...completely. AS came in secure in the knowledge that no other carrier is strong enough to fight.

On the SAN-JFK route, three airlines are on it. B6 seems to co-exist just fine with DL and AA on the
JFK route, even though DL sends a daily 757, and AA has a 763. BOS should do just fine with two
carriers.
