I believe that they also flew DFW-SBA in the early to mid 90's with a S80.

Yeah, this is good enws for SBA flight and it would be flying on their CRJ-700 aircraft and this is good move for American Eagle. So is that was only for 1 daily roundtrip nonstop? Thanks!  Smile

This is great news. I used SBA airport over last summer. Airport is a gem - beats the heck out of going to LAX and boarding a bus or Amtrak. The DFW connection is smart - lots of traffic to Europe, lots of traffic to South of the Border. This is a smart move. BUT, doesn't seem like they are maximising their utilisation of the aircraft here. Arrives 740pm and departs out of SBA at 635am?

IIRC, the original American MD-80 routing was DFW-BFL-SBA..
Ask why..

The layover length is probably due to a combination of when they needed the plane out of Dallas and crew rest issues when it is worked into a trip.
