Maybe it performed poorly because of the crew-friendly schedule and available (or non-available) conections @ DFW?
Possibly. Though there is virtually no local market and most PTY
-USA traffic goes to the East Coast. That hurts it.

That or maybe AA focuses Latin America thorugh MIA, like CO does through IAH.
Very true. Most Dallas-LatAm flights exist for the sole purpose of diverting low-yielding, overflow traffic from Miami. DFW
lives off connections to LA
are holiday markets so they do fine, DFW
performs very poorly, DFW
yields are less than stellar compared to MIA
, and DFW
is profitable only thanks to cargo. DFW
is the only Dallas-LatAm route that is a consistantly strong performer.
