PIT would have been nice, maybe as a PR gesture to show the area they're committed to keeping the hub like they say they are.

Wow, that place sure is growing more and more every year.

On the weekends that place sure will be packed with 757's.

Has AA announced their winter EGE schedule yet?

Too bad NW isn't bringing back Sat. DTW-EGE service though

As of now, AA's EGE sched is:

-15x weekly DFW
-8x weekly ORD
-7x weekly EWR
-1x weekly MIA
-1x weekly LGA

Last winter AA also did SFO and LAX. Usually, AA adds the California routes much later in the schedule, in late September/early October. Once every so often, AA will also add a second MIA-EGE flight based on early bookings. AA running daily EWR-EGE has always surprised me. I've always been curious as to why it is not from JFK. The LGA and MIA flights, which are nearly pure O&D, are almost always oversold.

Thanks..

The SFO/LAX - EGE seem like they won't return each year, but Vail Resorts and AA always work out some deal in the fall.

I'll second that MIA-EGE flight being full. Plus its always an interesting crowd that is on that flight. The English language was definetely the minority on that flight We got rerouted on that flight once.....
