Before the financial crisis in Argentina, AA
had wanted to do DFWEZE. Now that the Argentine economy is recovering, it should come as no surprise that DFWEZE is doing well.
Keep in mind that the flight currently operates on peak days for business travel, so the new flights may not have as high of a load factor at first, but should do better as the economy recovers.
The yields on the flight are strong and business passengers are still discovering that it's a very convenient way to fly between the West Coast and EZE
I don't think UA
will be very successful with ORDEZE as the local market isn't very large and AA
have better connections to the rest of the US. Also, UA
has lost a number of corporate accounts to AA
as a result of their suspension of service to MIA
