AA Expands MIA Domestic; Other Sched Changes...

Sun Sep 18, 2005 12:01 pm

In addition to the previously announced additional service to many international points, such as Kingston, Sanitago de Chile, Rio de Janeiro, and others, American Airlines is expanding domestic service, and some international service, from Miami once again this winter. This winter, so far, American Airlines and American Eagle will offer 262 daily flights from Miami International Airport to 101 destinations (99 non-stops plus Asuncion via Sao Paulo and Santa Cruz as a triangle via La Paz, but non-stop on the return).

Year-round:
Curacao: +2w for 2x daily effective 15Dec05; 738
Los Angeles: 6th daily effective 15Dec05; 738
Panama City: 3rd daily effective 15Dec05; 738
Philadelphia: 4th daily effective 15Dec05; 738
Tampa: 6th daily effective 15Dec05; 738
Washington/Dulles: 2nd daily effective 15Dec05; 738

Seasonal:
Montreal: 3rd daily effective 15Dec05-01Apr05; 738
New York City/LaGuardia: 10th daily effective 15Dec05-03Jun06; 738


Also, Fort Lauderdale gets two seasonal increases:
LaGuardia: 3rd daily effective 15Dec05; 738
St. Louis: +5w (for 2x daily) effective 03Feb06; S80

Sun Sep 18, 2005 12:07 pm

St. Louis doesnt need a completely new topic, and since its AA I'll just post it here:

STL-DSM (+1 ER4)
STL-MCO (+1 757)
STL-TPA (+1 MD 80)
STL-FLL (+1 MD80) as previously mentioned

Obviously, the Florida destinations are seasonal (as far as I can tell), but its good to see them adding mainline flights in any circumstance. No PBI, which is what I was told would be starting this winter. Too bad.

Some more...

...San Juan-Santo Domingo gets the daily A300 back
...Miami-Managua gets the daily A300 back
...Miami-Bogota gets the daily 763 back
...JFK-Caracas cut to 2x weekly
...Boston-Montreal discontinued, again
...Boston-Santo Domingo gets the Saturday 777 back
...O'Hare-Baton Rouge, new permanent service
...JFK-La Romana not operating this winter

AA doesn't usually put all schedule updates into one big lump like other airlines, so we'll see additions throughout the month.

Like you said, it is always good news to see added mainline flights even if they are seasonal. About the PBI, it is still possible. They probably are still finalizing their winter schedule.

Was this flight announced earlier this year? There is a new flight from both DSM and CID to STL on Eagle that starts Nov. 1st.. would you happen to know if that is in addition to the Nov. 1st flight?

This was probably it right here. There are too many new routes, upgraded frequencies, a/c changes for this one not be it. In the past I think they have even finished the winter schedules in the last August timetables.

On a good note, STL-VPS will stick around 2x weekly and remains VPS' only midwest connection. Hopefully, with the cutting of CVG-VPS the STL route will get stronger and good enough to resume daily.

Iowaman,

DSM moves to 5 daily, I thought it was previously 4 daily.

They should have one more flight, as they used to do before. At least another 738 or a 757.

Also, AA should bring back, at least on high seasons, the CCS - FLL route. It was very comfortable and profitable.

Doubtful. Since Ft. Walton Beach now has connections through Atlanta which outnumber connecting possibilities in STL by a good million percent.

Why is it that no US carrier seems to be able to make anything out of BOS-YUL? AA has now dropped twice, DL has also dropped it twice at least. And to think that that route used to see multiple daily L-1011s.

Strange, huh? I agree, I remember when DL had four 1011s per day on this route back in the 1980s (when I was at school in Boston).........maybe something for Song?

Back to MIA.......

Any update on transatlantic services for the winter schedule? Only one flight per day to LHR (didnt AA fly a second frequency on the MIA-LHR route a couple days per week in recent years?); is MAN returning (I did not see in on the list above); no news about the FRA flight returning or the long rumored MIA-BRU flight?

MAN is returning, albeit apparently at a reduced frequency -- 5x per week instead of last season's daily service. It won't operate Mon/Wed eastbound or Tue/Thu westbound. It's still around, though!

Wouldn't a Boston-Miami 777 make sense, on at least the more logical days and times (i.e. cruise departure days)? I mean, if a Boston-Santo Domingo 777 makes sense, a BOS-MIA one sure does.

BOS-SDQ makes sense because on Saturdays AA only operates one daily LHR flight, so sending the 777 to SDQ (and more importantly it's huge cargo bay) instead of having it sit in Logan all day is good utilization.

NICE! 4x 757 to EWR now! I think it used to only be 3x 757, 1x MD-80.

Somewhat unrelated but will EWR ever see 767 non-stop to LAX once again on AA. The 757s can be gross.

I am not sure what is gross about a 757........but in any case, its not likely that 767 service will return to the EWR-LAX route; AA's fleet of 762ERs fly the transcons out of JFK (plus a few other selected routes out of JFK such as JFK-MIA and JFK-BDA) and do not go to other stations in the AA system, AA has retired a good number of non-ER 762s (they may even have been broken up already) so that only leaves the 763ER which is too big for the EWR-LAX route (at EWR, AA must compete with CO which offers frequent service due to its hub operations). AA keeps its 763s quite busy with longhaul services, its unlikely that they would use the 763ER on the EWR-LAX route.

Dutchjet,

Thanks for the help, but AA 757s in coach are poorly maintained compared to COs. They are older, with stains, and worn seat covers. Nevertheless, the 757s are OK to fly on but I miss seeing AA 767s at EWR. A few years ago AA used to fly both 762s and 763s between EWR and LAX and also SJU but have since been removed.

Certainly. La Paz' runway isn't long enough to reliably allow a 757 to fly La Paz-Miami nonstop, so they fly via Santa Cruz, which does have a long enough runway.

La Paz runway is 4100m long. Its not the length of the runway, its b/c LPB is situated at 3400m (or is it 3600) above sea level, so the 757 suffers a lot on takeoff and can´t make it to MIA non-stop.

La Paz runway is 4100m long. Its not the length of the runway, its b/c LPB is situated at 3400m (or is it 3600) above sea level, so the 757 suffers a lot on takeoff and can´t make it to MIA non-stop.

I stand corrected. I actually thought it was a combination of the runway length with the altitude (of course, primarily the altitude)

RE: AA Expands MIA Domestic; Other Sched Changes...

Lets talk about Japan.

In a few weeks NW will drop JFK-NRT, and UA will scale back LAX-NRT from two to one flight a day. The reason is, business travelers are not flying, and their high fares make Japan profitable.

There is scheduled a meeting on Monday at AA to discuss what to do with flights to Japan. Maybe scale back some service, such as the second DFW-NRT flight, and make some others less than daily.

That could free up some 777s that might then be placed on RDU-LGW and the second daily DFW-LGW for the winter (right now they are schedule with 767-300s). If enough flights are cut to Japan, it could also make a 777 available to fly more troops to/from Kuwait. But that is a problem because the staging area at FRA, which AA uses as a crew change stopover for such desert flights, is scheduled to be closed in just a few weeks (can someone confirm this?) That leaves FCO to be used (which was used in the first Gulf War to bring troops home), but AA does not fly to FCO year round and AA would have to deadhead crews on another airline to spot them for such flights.

All possibilities, but for sure Japan profit has disappeared for everyone. And as a result, Hawaii is picking up fliights, making those markets crowded with too many flights and those profit margins, already small, are dropping even more.

Why the sudden change? AA was so gung ho on Japan flying only a few months ago. Does this evaporation of profit impact NRT primarily, or have NGO and (soon to be) KIX also lost luster?

By any chance, will AA serve MIA-MFE sooner or later on the domestic route?

I'd say the chance of that is 0%. There is no market for MIA-MFE.

Probably pretty soon now that they have gotten broad U.S.-U.K. approval. It will most likely be loaded for sale soon for a launch next spring.

You'll see MFE-ORD (which in itself is doubtful) before you see MFE-MIA. The valley area can get where it needs to go on CO via IAH.

However, I thought AA was launching AUS-MIA and SAT-MIA service. Is this still on hold?

I've thought the same thing. Any chance of a fourth flight, perhaps 738?

Also any updates on the rumored SEA, SAN, PHX-MIA?

A fourth frequency with a 738 is very possible in the near future. However, AA is highly utlizing their domestic fleet, so they can't add frequencies to MIA-SFO, which requires a plane for a long time, without making more cuts.

Quoting MFEFlyer (Reply 40):

There is a better chance of MFE seeing a non-stop to Frankfurt, Germany.

Quoting Ssides (Reply 44):

They are being planned, but, again, American Eagle is very short on planes, and can't add routes without cutting them, so new Eagle routes will take longer to appear. They are also planning MIA-SAV/BHM, though SAV might be ATRs.

Quoting BigGSFO (Reply 45):

MIA-PHX might launch this winter with the US/HP merger going through. MIA-SAN is being planned as a daily 738, but there is absolutely no timetable for the date. I haven't heard anything about MIA-SEA lately.

The final winter schedule should be out by early October. MIA might be getting two-three new domestic routes in January, but, again, AA is short on planes, so can only add so much, and there are new routes from other hubs that sometimes may have priority.

They were flying two AB6s for a long time. When did they switch to 757 and is it flight 917/918 or 2111/2110?

Given AA's tepid (at best) relationship with the SJC market, I'd say that MIA-PHX/SAN/SEA have a much higher likelihood of appearing (or reappearing) than MIA-SJC.
