More New AA Eagle Service!

Thu Oct 02, 2003 5:29 am

Searched the forum and didn't find anything so here goes:

DFW-DSM effective 1/31/04 5 Eagle flights (3 CR7, 2 ER4) replaces 2 M80, 1 CR7, and 1 ER4)

RDU-FLL effective 12/6/03 on ER3 (weekend only)

RDU-NAS effective 1/31/04 on ER3 (weekend only)

nothing earth shattering, but yet another transition to all RJs (DSM on AA).

So are all the mainline AA flights out of DSM eliminated?
"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

It looks like American Eagle is moving towards an all RJ fleet, thus progressively phasing out the props, and there are more routes flown today by American Eagle previously flown by American Airlines mainline. It is obvious that there'll be more RJ routes on Eagle's system in the future, routes that used to be in the mainline system, Eagle's RJ's are rapidly taking over Fokker 100 routes. Most mainline routes flown on the Fokker 100 will see Eagle RJ's, such is the case on the ALB-ORD flight, that route used to be flown with larger equipment including B727/MD80/F100 aircraft, now it's all ERJ. I mention ALB because that's were I went to college.

Here's an AE Rumor: Possible route being talked about again: BOS-DTW next year. Now this is only "talk"- the history of this possible route dates way before LGA AE service started. However, given that AE has announced a few new routes for January'03 already, I would say unfortunately, so far, does not appear to be happening (talk was for January startup).

Like I mentioned a few other times.. it's rumor, so keep it in mind so if it does happen, you aren't shocked!  Big grin

What does the AA pilots contract allow in regards to # of AE RJ flights/planes?

Under the new pilots agreement (the concessionary one signed this past spring), AA pretty much has free reign on RJ's now. AA will take delivery of over 100 RJ's in the next two years. Many of these will be used to backfill for the 50 or so F100's that are being retired. Expect to see many more AA markets lose mainline....just like DL has already done.

ssides: it appears that DSM will become an American Eagle station (no mainline) as the only other AA service is to ORD, also on RJs.

AIR757200-
Interesting to see the rumors of AE DTW-BOS surfacing again. That one went around pretty strong in the late '90's. Everyone thought DTW-BOS would happen before the DTW-LGA route. There was even talk of DTW-BOS being mainline F-100 back in the day.

Most of the new RJ capacity for next year is going to be used to offset the F-100 retirement. Many former F-100 routes will be a mix of either all RJ or anything from and ERJ-CRJ up to an MD-80 depending on the time of day.

AA is looking to phase out all Saab 340's in 2005, and all remaining ATR's in 2007.

Does Northwest have a monopoly right now on DTW-BOS? I can't think of who else flies between the two cities.

Whats the deal with the RDU-MCO? What ac type? ERJ 135 or 145?

HlywdCatft.. NW is the only carrier with nonstop service to BOS. AE would be smart to share this route with NW and cash in on some of the yield. Right now, each AE DTW-LGA flight has one or a few passengers connecting further to BOS.

In any case, PSU.DTW.SCE., your right.. its not a new subject with management and planners. If I find out any more, I'll be sure to let you know.

Looks like Eagle is now returning to Duluth, MN
3x ORD-DLH returns in March.

Wasn't the only reason Duluth was cut was due to the scope clause and needing the RJ's for more profitable routes?
