Perhaps AA will center routes at times that arent strong for connections at DFW such as:

DAL-Austin
DAL-Houston
DAL-Oklahoma City
DAL-New Orleans
DAL-San Antonio
DAL-Tulsa

True. But here's what will likely happen. AA will launch a bunch of flights to go head to head with WN. They'll lose tons of money on these flights. Then AA will realize how stupid these flights were and cut most (if not all) of them.

See AA's reaction to JetBlue in the transcon market from JFK for reference.

AA has tried to compete with WN on intra-Texas before, and they had their behind's handed to them. AA would be hard pressed to opperate any sort of mainline or regional equippment on these routes and stay competitive with WN.

I would commend them for trying again, but I doubt they will waste much of their resources on these routes.

Let see here; AA won't go head to head with WN in Chicago, so why can't they just live with the fact that WN will rule Love and they will control DFW, and besides they need the feeder at DFW for their other flights. I agreed if AA attempts to use RJ's at Love it will be an early KO.

I fear this attempt by AA to stifle WN's potential growth in the Dallas/Ft. Worth market will come at the expense of several other markets that depend on AA for service. The aircraft have to come from somewhere, and I don't think AA has many lying around ready to combat WN. I wonder how many aircraft they'll pull from current routes to try to fend off WN in DAL.

This one is going to be interesting. We've already seen a similar situation as this in DEN, whereby UA thought they could tear down F9 but F9 ended up eating UA's lunch, the only problem there was, F9 is was the hometown airline, and UA became that other airline from chicago. Problem here is, both airlines are the "hometown airline," well, AA is that airline from Fort Worth, but technically speaking Fort Worth is only 20 miles down the road and their airport IS dallas's main airport. My prediction: 5 years of intense heavy competition until they both figure out that neither is going anywhere.

If AA is smart, they won't completely rip apart the phenomenally powerful D/FW hub (as they are threatening). I could envision from Love:

. 5x daily DAL-ORD with MD80s
. 4x daily DAL-LAX with MD80s
. 4x daily DAL-STL with MD80s
. 3x daily DAL-LGA with MD80s
. 3x daily DAL-DCA with MD80s
. 3x daily DAL-MIA with 738s

This would serve the most important O&D markets, but preserve the integrity of the connections over D/FW.

AA could start out with RJ's to long haul markets to establish the routes and if and when the WA is repealed then switch to main line aircraft before WN has a chance to react.

Bottom line is get the planes in the airport and get the facilities ready.

Unless it is just a pissing contest. And if it is then I think they might be aiming into the wind.

There used to be years ago a WN flight about every two hours now I believe just a couple times a day DAL-OKC on WN.

Back when Legend started service, AA also decided to make a preemptive strike against a Wright Amendment repeal and started DAL-AUS service somewhere in the neighborhood of 14 flights per day. After being killed in that market by WN and killing off Legend, AA abandoned DAL completely. They will not be competing on short haul flights. With no feed at DAL it makes no sense for them to start these routes.

Agreed. AA still has nearly 1,000 daily flights out of DFW; they are the most well known carrier to the Metroplex, and when people think of flying to the area DFW airport is the one that springs to mind. DAL will serve a niche market and AA might be able to do well offering a few flights to key business destinations. If it makes money, then they should go for it. If it is just for posturing or revenge, however, then why waste the money when you can defend your home turf from DFW as well and remain the market share leader in the area by a wide margin?

Well, I sure hope that the folks at Southwest HQ don't have the level of arrogance that many of the people on this forum do. This is not the American Airlines of the late 90s, early 00s with sky-high costs. The are leaner and more efficient. I still think SWA has a clear advantage but don't think this will be the SWA rout everyone seems to be predicting, American has competitive (I did'nt say equal so pocket your flamethrowers) costs and SWA's hedges are set to begin expiring next year. The industry is so different today that all the trends and industry 'norms' of the past decades mean absolutely nothing in today's environment. Game on.

I don't see how that would be an effective strategy. "Head start" wouldn't extend beyond advanced bookings. Preperations to open a route can be made months in advance then executed on a moments notice. WN could open new routes overnight when given the opportunity.

AA can't win on speed in this instance...

Quoting EA CO AS (Reply 17):
Actually, that argument can be applied to every carrier...including WN, for that matter. They're all market share whores.

IMO, the last airline that would apply to is WN. They consistantly have one of the lowest load factors of any major airline, and have only achieved the highest share domestic traffic by decades of slow growth. Time and time again, WN has shown to be a yield focused not market share focused airline.

This is not the American Airlines of the late 90s, early 00s with sky-high costs. The are leaner and more efficient. I still think SWA has a clear advantage but don't think this will be the SWA rout everyone seems to be predicting, American has competitive (I did'nt say equal so pocket your flamethrowers) costs and SWA's hedges are set to begin expiring next year. The industry is so different today that all the trends and industry 'norms' of the past decades mean absolutely nothing in today's environment. Game on.

I agree. Both airlines have huge FF base in Dallas too however AA will seeking the higher yielding crowd. They can offer the competitive fares out of DAL, but they can also offer what a lot of higher yielding passengers want: upgrades, assigned seating and a frequent flyer program that can get them free tickets to Rio. IMO there is room for both at DAL. There is also room for both at DFW but obviously WN isn't going to even attempt that move.

Bottom line this is about money - not about who is kicking who's butt down the highway. I doubt AA will weaken DFW for the sake of DAL and if they can make some money serving both airports then more power to them.
