American Eagle In SAV

Tue Jun 21, 2005 3:21 pm

Does anyone know when the Eagle flights ORD-SAV start? I saw them on AA.com today and I didn't;t even know they were starting. Also, does anyone here think that we (Savannah) will see service to MIA again? We currently have no flights to MIA. It would be great to get something back. The only nonstop to Florida now is a 1x daily Delta Connection to MCO. Just wondering. Thanks.

Two daily flights run 2 July 2005 through 30 October 2005. They are seasonal.

Yes. It is being looked at for this winter. I think it will be a go.

Not anymore. Those flights ended last month.

Thank goodness.....do you happen to know the equipment type to be used?

I did not know that. I work the ramp at SAV and did not even know that flight ended. Will it be returning at all?

Thanks, and sorry for all the questions.

It is not a go yet. I think it is likely to be launched, but a final decission is at least two-three months away. It would probably be a daily ATR.

No, the flight performed terribly. If anything, Delta would be better off trying SAV-FLL. That has much better potential, since they can tap into the weekend vacationers from South Florida. The problem with SAV-MCO is that the market is big, but most people drive.
