Did AA Give Up On Bna?

Fri Jul 26, 2002 2:12 pm

When I first moved to Nashville, it was the hayday of the great AA in BNA. While I was far too young to remember I do know that the current route network was nothing compared to history. For at least a while we did have a flight to LGW. My question is this, why did AA pull out of a market, where as evident by WN, lots of money could be made. The international flight I understand that being canceled. Why cancel an always full nostop from SAN, and downgrade the BNA-LAX from the 757 to the MD-80? Could AA have made money after screwing the city of Nashville into building the 10,00 foot runway, and basicaly getting what they wanted from Nashville?

Back in those days, AA attempted to set up a hub in Nashville. Like what happened with Raleigh/Durham, the hub failed.
