What are some new AA routes you guys could see come to frutation? I could see the following
SFO-FLL (strong possiblity, heavily rumored)
DFW-BIL (oil business)
SJC-LGW (supplementing BA's SFO flights)
MIA-FCO (fashion industry)
has been rumoured for a long time. I keep hearing "next summer...next summer". Its one of those rumours that is always strong, but never happens. Hopefully, though, "next summer"...
would easily fill up the plane, but there is no fashion industry traffic between Miami and Rome. The traffic is between Miami and Milan, which is why Alitalia dropped MIA
a while back in exchange for adding more MIA
flights to meet strong business demand on the route. MIA
would happen before FCO
Four new routes you will be seeing this year (all on Eagle):
As for the Miami area, there are a lot of routes being tossed around. AA
is planning a major destination build-up in Miami, which started in mid-2002. AA
has added/announced 13 non-stop destinations to Miami since June 2002 and four to Ft. Lauderdale (as well as increasing FLL
capacity four folds). The more likely ones:
Also keep an eye out for Ft. Lauderdale-San Jose, CR or Ft. Lauderdale-Guatemala City, especially as Spirit starts getting closer to thier Central American expansion.
Another route rumour I have been hearing lately is Raleigh-Los Angeles, and a handful of new Mexico routes, mainly from Dallas (ORD
will get in on some too, though), thanks to thier new codeshare with MX
It is all rumours though (except for the first list). We'll just have to wait and see...
