MIA-DTW will be back to three dailies in the winter (16Dec04), even though it has not been uploaded in the schedules yet.
Like MAH4546, according to what I've heard myself (from mgmnt), MIA
frequencies will return in the winter season; whether it will be one or two additionals, we'll have to wait until almost the last minute. AA
is known, internally, to throw in additional flights without notice.
Anyway, the MIA
flights are interesting... as for how well they did? The evening DTW
departure was one of those flights that during the off-peak days, the load would be from 40%-70%, however, the inbound MIA
would be 60%-90%.. so one of the two segments had a decent load. I don't think NW
has had to much of an effect on AA
's planning. The extra capacity surely doesn't help. Plus you have Spirit depressing the yield with people willing to pay less to go to FLL
Just like IndustrialPate and PSU.DTW
.SCE, we are waiting for these Eagle flights to get dumped on the weekday mainline schedule (we already have a ORD
--btw, been hearing a lot of weight restriction problems with this flight) AE
flight on the weekend)... I'm sure they are bound to come, as a mix though, during peak times, those planes can fill up with passengers and cargo, plus the agents now are going over additional material on "familiarizing" with Eagle aircraft. Which by the way, except for the 6 a.m. LGA
flight, all AE
flights are now officially out of gate B-8.
