American Eagle will launch thrice-daily service between Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood and Raleigh, part of an on going expansion at both airports. In addition to Hartford, White Plains, and Columbus, with increased frequency to LaGuardia will be added to Raleigh and previously announced Caracas and increased frequncy to LAX and LGA will be added to FLL. In addition, American will add a third daily between Raliegh and Miami.

American Eagle expanded greatly at Port Columbus a year ago when they opened their new maintenance facility at CMH. It's good to see them fill in the void left by the demise of Midway Airlines, though I wish they were still around.

DKR, are you sure? It is still on the updated new AA timetable. SJU-CCS has been flown for a while now (currently suspended through 2 Dec 02 according to timetable). Plus, AA was getting free landing fees for a year on the route. I don't see why they would end it. Despite a downturn in travel, the demand between Miami and Caracas is still very strong.

Yes, it's true when I go into my CRS and try to bring up flights between FLL and CCS, all I get is FLL-SJU and then SJU-CCS. I double checked on AA's website too, and I get the same thing.
AA will be flying an ATR-72 on SJU-CCS between October 10 to December 14. Then starting on Dec. 15, it switches to a 737-800. So my guess is that AA will use the 737-800 that they had planned for FLL-CCS on SJU-CCS instead.

Thanks for the info DKR. Also, some other things, and maybe you can comfirm them, but it seems like the 5x weekly AA MIA-GIG flight is gone, and second-daily MIA-GRU does not return until 15 December (or 02 December, I forget). Also, MIA-EZE is currently 10x weekly. Goes back to double daily on 02 December.

Also, nice to see MIA now with service to Montevideo again. It would be nice if it was same plane, but since it is more economical to fly a 763ER, that makes sense. Just a side note, but MIA-ASU-GRU has always been a change of aircraft, I think. I always thought the flight # orginated in MIA, but the plane originated in JFK. I'm assuming Belo Horizonte will still be served as a continuation of MIA-GIG, right?

Skychuck, no point. AA operates twice-daily FLL-LGA flights, going to thrice daily in November using 738s and M80s. I think the RDU operation is more as a fill in for the hole that Midway is leaving, plus, it can feed the LGW flight from certain points.

There's a AE RJ maintenance center in CMH. Perhaps they will be rotating RJ's out of here instead of ferrying them empty from BOS, in order to get more aircraft in for service along with the BOS-CMH service. It looks as if AA/AE is trying to serve most major eastern cities out of BOS to build on their mini-hub. It wouldn't surprise me if we soon see DTW-BOS AE RJ service too. Supposedly the DTW-LGA RJ service has been successful and upgraded to 5x daily from 4.

Yes, the additional MIA-GIG flight is gone, at least for now. The second daily MIA-GRU flight comes back on Dec. No changes to to MIA-GIG-CNF. The aircraft used for the GRU-ASU route changes all the time. Sometimes it's the one from JFK and sometimes from MIA.
Here's some more AA South/Central america changes:
MIA-BOG: 3rd daily flight resumes on Nov. 1
MIA-SJO: 3rd daily flight resumes on Dec. 15
MIA-GUA: 3rd daily flight resumes on Nov. 1
MIA-PTY: 3rd daily flight resumes on Dec. 15
DFW-SJO: 1 additonal flight on Sat. and Sun. beginning on Dec. 15
JFK-GIG: service resumes on Dec. 15 (5x a week)
Also SJU-CCS won't re-start until Dec. 15. AA just changed their schedule.
