St. Louis to Lafayette, Indiana? I don't think so. American doesn't fly there. I think it's American Eagle using EMB-145 jet. Not American jets. Is that correct?

I thought the SJU-RDU flight was going to be seasonal ?
I wonder how the CUN-BOS route will do ?

Also of interest is this: the Saturday-only Boston-Santo Domingo flight will be upgraded from a 757 to a 777. That is pretty impressive, albeit only for a Saturday flight.

A minor caveat: This actually has happened before. Right after the SJC-RDU flight was announced, it was uploaded into the res system. However, after a few days, it dissapeared, only to reappear the next week. Now, it seems to have disappeared again. Let's wait a few days and see what happens.

Wow, they are going to start an STL-LAF flight. I'm amazed anybody flies out of LAF with IND only 45 mins. away

STL-LAF will be operated by Corporate J31s three times a day. The convenience of flying out of LAF with comparable fares to Indianapolis should make the new route a success.

They're really sticking it to USAirways. I heard US were doing rather well on CLT - Caribbean and Latin America, AA have a massive operation to that neck of the woods from MIA, and CLT-MIA will take some of that traffic. Ditto Raleigh to San Juan. Poor old US just can't get a break.

Look for a major downsizing of the SJC operation. I read a press release about American's cost cutting efforts that would include less emphasis on flying to and from Silicon Valley and other former employment hot spots, and focus on long-haul flying to increase aircraft utilization.

ContinentalEWR is right. The biggest cuts will be in San Jose and Austin, and Raleigh-Durham fits the profile of those two cities as well, although I do not think Raleigh will see big cuts.

Apparently, there will be a major increasing in flying to Mexico from all thier hubs, including many new routes (such as already announced ORD-PVR and BOS-CUN; and MIA-CZM is rumoured to be coming, among others).

Also, lot's of extra Caribbean flying from MIA, JFK, and BOS. Some frequency cuts on MIA-Central America (nothing major; MIA-GUA/MGA/SAL/PTY are each loosing only two weekly frequencies) and capacity cuts to South America (but not frequency; like DFW-CCS and two MIA-CCS flights down to a 738 [Colombia and Ecuador are healthy, however]). Though they may be entering two new markets by the end of 2003, those being Valencia, Venezuela (that totally depends on if or not Venezuela's economy and traffic recovers) and Liberia, Costa Rica.

Leisure routes are key this winter, as evidenced by BOS-LAS, MIA-LAS, and LAX-EGE.

St. Louis will suffer in terms of capacity, because rumours are they are going to be making STL something like 45% RJs.

New European routes too, like JFK-FCO and JFK-BCN. Hopefully that will not be all.

In the end, MIA and JFK will likely see the bulk of the benefits; SJC and AUS will suffer the most, as mentioned. ORD and DFW probably won't feel the route changes that hard, and neither will STL, but STL will see a lot of RJs (like on STL-IAH and STL-CLT, the two most recent all-RJ switches).
