Yeah, it's amazing. I remember when AA used to dominate the Aruban market but they are losing marketshare with almost all major U.S. carrier flying to AUA nowadays. When looking at the number of flights each day I think US is coming very close to AA now.

Jamaica and the Bahamas are served quite well by US as well. A lot of their Carribean flights actually connect through FLL.

Is that really true? The post above shows a Saturday schedule when US has lots of flights into AUA, but on other days of the week, there are only two US flights out of AUA, one to the PHL hub and the other to the CLT hub.
In any case, the days of AA more or less having the caribbean to itself are over.

After AA, US is the largest operator to AUA and they haven't been flying to AUA so long, right? Not more than 10 years, right?
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 10):|
Its more than 10 years - I flew with AA to Aruba in 1980 (my first visit to Aruba). The flight was operated with a DC-10-10 with a JFK-AUA-Curacao-JFK triangle routing.....thats 26 years ago and think AA has been serving the route ever since it took over Transcaribbean in the early 1970s. Back in 1980, that was the only AA route to Aruba.....EA was flying the MIA-AUA route and AA's SJU hub had not yet developed.
