I'm pretty sure AA has enough super 80's to fly down to MFE, I mean AA only has 4 daily flights to MFE.
Sorry, very few extra planes, pilots & flight attendants just sitting around DFW
waiting to be used.
So what happens when a flight is cancelled? Do the recomadate the passengers to the next flight?
In this case, yes. The next flight was only a couple of hours later and all pax were accomodated on that flight. Return flight was pretty full and all connecting pax were reaccomodated on later connecting flights. It's a bit of a headache for the reservations folks who have to do all the reconnections, but a whole lot cheaper than operating the flight late --huge cascade effect throughout AA
's entire network of flights.
