More AA Spring Schedule Changes @ STL

Sat Feb 25, 2006 1:22 pm

* come March, fourth (intermittent daily) flight between St. Louis and Indy.

* come early April, Seattle and San Francisco bump to three daily

* early April, San Diego drops to one daily, Tampa drops to two daily.

* come April, Dallas/Ft. Worth drops to eight daily, of course, four Love Field flights begin first of March.


is a second daily ultimately planned to come back into the schedules to San Diego like it did last summer, or not so much?

Quoting STLGph (Thread starter):
Tampa drops to two daily.
TPA has always been at two daily. They operate 3 daily on Sat. during the busy winter months. There could be more schedules changes on the next schedule change this weekend. We will see. Does anybody know for sure if the STL-SRQ is gonig to be seasonal or suspended? Also, Eagle is resuming a second daily flight to JFK.

Has anyone checked out the seven (7) nonstops to BNA this spring/summer?? I don't remember there ever being that many from STL under AA's schedule. Also DEN goes up to six daily. United goes to six daily to DEN as well and F9 goes to five daily in August-- this might not happen but the schedule showed it the last time. Wow if WN were to start service we would have more flights to DEN than DFW/DAL

Tampa has been a daily flight in past summers, it would be nice to see it stick around at 2x year round. Same case with FLL, except it has been weekend only in past summers. This summer it looks like FLL wil stick around at once daily throughout.

We actually lose one flight and quite a few seats (6 or 7 757's to 3 757's?), so that's not good. I guess we did gain 4 extra dailies on the WN side of it, so overall a net gain in seats just not for AA.

Quoting Stl1326 (Reply 1):

I would bet on SRQ being seasonal. As I just said TPA usually lost a daily flight in past summers and I wouldn't be surprised to see SRQ follow suit.

The 2nd daily JFK flight is a good and a bad thing. For one, it hurts our slim or non-existant chances of ever landing some direct or nonstop service to Europe.

AA looks to be done with adding on in St. Louis for the most part. They had added about a net gain of 15 daily after about a year and a half, but since then smaller markets such as BMI, CMI, etc. have been dropped. Overall seats are up, which is a good thing, but I really don't see much AA growth in our future.

i still wonder about the San Diego flight. i figured bookings would go *up* in the summer and we'd still see the second flight.

i am most surprised about the fourth flight on the RJ to Indy.

also, the number of flights to Chicago remains the same but there is a rescheduling of many of the flights come the first of April.

does anyone know yet what will happen to the Trans States routes that are currently operated with J41's that will not switch to ERJ when Trans States goes all jet? I think there were a few cities, like PIA, COU & SGF that were maybe in talks to get the service replaces by RegionsAir....

Guess it depends on your version of a hub. If you consider over 200 mainline and regional flights per day a hub, then so be it. AA looks at STL as a "hub".

Looking at it from a different angle, if there are few if any connecting opportunities, then is it still a hub, as defined by the "hub and spoke"?? I would look at STL as more of a "focus city", with the "focus" on the O&D passenger.

Just my opinion...

If I remember correctly, I couldnt find STL-SGF in the schedule as of mid May.

I too am wondering how Regions (or if) will pick up any of these routes that TSA is dropping. Maybe they will use some of the Jetstreams that are currently flying the STL-BNA route and put them into serivce to COU, JLN or DEC.

I honestly dont think we will have STL-SPI anymore because I dont think Regions would find it profitable to compete with Jetstream 31s up aginst United Connection RJs (which seem to go five time a day to ORD).

STL is a big ghost town after about 5pm. I was based there as my first base with my current company, Not much goes on at STL. AA is not as great as when they first merged with TW. All the ex-TW flights are long gone, as well as the environment that TW provided.

Exxactly.

AA technically considers STL to be a hub. But when you look at the size of some of AA's other hubs and then their other focus cities, AA is much closer in size to those focus cities than it is to the hubs.

Also these routes like STL-SRQ, HOU and others might be dropped to free up RJs for the new RJ services that are starting like STL-CID, MSN, MEM and XNA. If I understand correctly the AA connection operation at STL is limited in the number of RJs they can operate. So if TSA is dropping the Jetstreams and they want to continue service to some of these cities the only thing they can do is move some RJs around.

That may be true, but I thought I read on here that TSA was putting some planes into the AA Connection and United Express banners as they stop flying for US Airways Express. Also, STL-HOU was flown by Chautauqua.

VPS was a complete shot in the dark anyway, I really didn't think it would stick around too long. SRQ is probably seasonal, and PVR is flown like 12 times a year.

In the technical sense, maybe. I'd consider LAX or BOS to be more of a hub than STL, though both are considered to be focus cities while STL is considered to be a hub. BOS and LAX both have similar numbers of flights, both are AE hubs, and both have something STL doesn't, AA international service.

"Hub" is somewhat of an ambigous term. STL is my home airport and I consider it to be more of a glorified focus city than a genuine hub, regardless of what AA calls it. You can call it whatever you want, I'll call it a glorified focus city.

Frequency,competition, and equipment. WN has two nonstop flights per day to the markets you've mentioned. WN has 5 N/S per day HOU-STL and 8 flights total. Combine that with the fact that most Houston legacy fliers are probably over at IAH flying CO IAH-STL and everyone else is probably on a WN 73x and you've got a clunker of a route unless there's just a ton of O traffic from STL. Obviously, there wasn't. It's awfully tough to put an ERJ up against a mainline-sized aircraft and compete effectively. The only place I know that AA gets it done is on their shuttle runs in the northeast.

it was put into the schedules on Nov 1, 2003 and still appears on the old timetables i have printed out from the spring and summer of that year. so i am presuming it switched off to M80 sometime in the fall of 04.

Thanks for the pics Alex, in spite of how depressing they are... Sad

Gate 51, that is an oldie there. I can't remember how long it has been since Lambert saw gate numbers without the Concourse designation in front. Gate C30 was where TW and later AA's flight from LGW would arrive, then continue on to LAX. Gone for good now I suppose...

>>Frequency,competition, and equipment. WN has two nonstop flights per day to the markets you've mentioned. WN has 5 N/S per day HOU-STL and 8 flights total. Combine that with the fact that most Houston legacy fliers are probably over at IAH flying CO IAH-STL and everyone else is probably on a WN 73x and you've got a clunker of a route unless there's just a ton of O traffic from STL. <<

Just for informational purposes, the most current DOT data I have shows WN with 53% of the Houston to St Louis market, Continental with 39%. That would leave 8% for all other carriers.

It appears they pulled it out of the closest to put the "new old" ones in for the new digital Moniter screens. I was completely shocked to see 51, it had been YEARS since 51 was at STL, 52, 53 and so forth were underneath the stack of gate Signs, pretty cool.
