AA will add a second daily 738 non stop to BDL out of Miami.Maybe AA will add a little more to its northeast routes out of MIA with the cutbacks that US Airways is going through.

Great news. There certainly is a market. What are the times on that?

Great news! We really could use that second daily to Hartford. This is in addition to the new 6th daily to Boston, 3rd daily to Baltimore, and 7th/8th dailies to National coming in June, so they are definitley expanding the Miami-NE schedule.

Boeing757/767, the new times allow for Hartford residents to connect convienetly with AA's Latin American departures at night. It departs Miami in the afternoon at 1.30, arrives in Hartford at 4.45, leaves BDL one hour later, and gets in to MIA before 9. This will bring the Miami-Hartford market up to 5 daily non-stops: 3 daily DLX 732s from FLL and 2 daily AA 738s from MIA.

Awesome, we need all the flights we can get here in Hartford, AA is getting closer and closer to the number 1 carrier spot at BDL.

Related to MIA, National announced a 3rd daily MIA-LAS flight today. I am still shocked AA does not fly MIA-LAS.

Hey MAH4546, I have a question for you.

When are AA's main Latin America/Mexico/Carribean/Bahamas arrivals and departures rush hours?

thanks,
blink

Blink182, the long-hauls (EZE, SCL, GRU, GIG, CNF, MVD, ASU) depart at night (9pm-Midnight) and arrive very early in the morning (4am-7am). The same time also sees the SFO, LIM, and LAX redeyes arriving. Other than that, everything is mixed. Most Carribbean destinations have at least two, often three dailies. 11pm-1am and 4pm-6pm are big arrival/departure times. Bahammas flights are all throughout the day. MIA-NAS is pretty much almost hourly.

If AA ever adds back mainline to JFK and LAX, American could come close to #1 carrier at BDL unless Delta expands more.

With the addtion, AA now has:

ORD- 6
STL- 4
DFW- 4
SJU-2
MIA-2

18 daily departures

Eagle-

RDU-3
JFK-3

24 daily Departures.

Just a couple corrections to previous posts:

AA's BDL-LAX is no longer in the schedules, so I guess that is off the books. Also, I'm not sure if PBI is considered a Miami-area airport (excuse my ignorance if it is not), but if it is that means BDL actually has 8 daily flights to the area---3 DLEx to FLL, 2 AA to MIA, and 3 DLEx to PBI.

Chuj, wow. Thanks for the update. That's really disapointing that they took it off the scheds again.

As for PBI being a Miami area airport, depends who you ask. The US Census does not (yet) include Palm Beach as Miami in metropolitan area counts; the United Nations, which counts population based on "urban area", does. Best way to put it: Palm Beach is to Miami what Baltimore is to Washington, D.C..

I heard speculation a while back of AA coming to YOW from MIA. I think that would work well. AC had weekly seasonal nonstops to MCO and FLL; I'd bet the combined traffic of tourism and latin-American connections could make the route work.

Cap'n Dan, I definitley think AA could make MIA-YOW work very well with a daily MD-80. It would probably work best if it were made to connect with the Caribbean flights. The connections and O&D should make it work. MIA-YOW would not surprise me.

we need at least one more AA flt from mia-phl. i dont know if they have dropped any flts, probably though, but i am pretty sure they downgraded a 330 flt to a 767 or 757. there's got to be more demand there. usairways sends a mix of 757, 321, and 767(i am pretty sure) and AA sends 2 738 and a 757.

It would not surprise me at all to see AA add another bank of domestic flights out of MIA to the following cities.ATL,PHL,YYZ,YUL,DFW,IAH,BNA,STL,and DTW.Also reinstating SJC,and SEA.With US Airways on the ropes why not introduce nonstop MIA-CLT and PIT.

Doug...

ATL...AA recently added back the fifth daily; DL is the dominant on this route; its one of MIA's biggest O&D domestic markets (#3 or 4), but I think 5x daily is good

PHL...a 4th daily would not surprise me in the future; especially seeing how LGA, DCA, BWI, BOS, and BDL are all getting new flights this summer

YYZ...it was 3x daily until 04Sep01; what happened? It's a dense route and I was surprised to see the 3rd daily discontinued. Hope to see it back.

YUL...rumours were that they were going to add a 2nd daily before 9.11 happened.

DFW...there recently added a 9th daily and a 10th is coming in June; add that to the 6 dailies from FLL and the Miami-Dallas market is well covered. It is a hub route, though, so more flights would always work.

IAH...they used to have 4x daily, when did the 4th end?

BNA...only 1x daily, that really surprises me. I definitley could see them adding two more.

STL...definitley. Only 4x daily and this is supposed to be a hub route.

DTW...as I am sure you know, it was supposed to go to 3x daily this past December; hopefully it will this coming December. Of all the domestic markets AA serves out of MIA, DTW is definitley the most underserved. They have only ONE of 15 daily flights between Miami and Motown.

SJC...not if, but when. It is coming back, I'm sure of it. I say 12 to 18 months.

SEA...same with SJC; I give it 6-12 months.

PIT...there were some big rumours about PIT happening this fall along with MSP and MCI.

CLT...if US falters, it is a no-brainer.

I think some other POSSIBILITIES include: BHM (Eagle), CMH, IND, LAS, PHX, SAN, AUS, ISP, GSO (Eagle), return of SAV (Eagle)

Of course, not all of these are going to happen, and none are likely soon, but I think they are possibilites for the future.

Bigo747, flights to Belo Horizonte are temporarily operating on the route JFK-GRU-CNF. AA has four dailies to CNF, three 777s (DFW, MIA, JFK) and one 763 (MIA). The 763 goes on to Asuscion; so a 777 does the CNF run. On June 1st, AA brings back the second Miami-Rio frequency and CNF goes back to being MIA-GIG-CNF as in the past; daily 763.

What's all this expansion talk in MIA when AA is losing 500 Mil a quarter?

Where are these planes coming from? What AA city will see a reduction in flights to accomodate this build up?

Padcrasher, AA is adding 130 daily flights to MIA between now and 2006. Many are already on thier way. This summer sees one extra daily each to BDL, BWI, BOS, LGA, LAX, DFW, ORD, SJU, PAP, TGU, and BZE. Two extra dailies to DCA. New daily to STI. 5x a week to MDE; 5 extras a week to GIG.

26 MAH4546 : Doug, thanks for the info, but MAR has been daily for a long time now. Since June. It never reduced.
27 MAH4546 : On an added note, knowing AA, I won't be surprised to see a second daily to POP announced soon now that PN is starting the route. Isn't MIA-POP double
28 Chepos : I hope to see AA restart the MIA-BQN route in the next couple of years. BQN already has flights to the New York area so I think MIA would also be a go
29 CannedSpam : Doug, I must correct one point, there are no unused aircraft now as a result of 9/11. Additionally, there will not be any additonal aircraft delivered
