AA EWR Cutback Eff April 2007

Mon Dec 18, 2006 5:53 am

After reading about the new domestic flights AA is launching in some of the other threads here, I decided to see how EWR was faring for the upcoming Spring 2007 schedule change.

Looks like they're cutting out 1 of the 3 MIA flights.

Currently, MIA-EWR gets 3 flights:

#1970 Dp MIA 8:15a Ar EWR 11:10a

#2110 Dp MIA 2:10p Ar EWR 5:10p (this is a joke - the flight is usually 2 hours delayed due to groundstop at EWR)

#1050 Dp MIA 6:35p Ar EWR 9:35p

It's pretty easy to see from the return EWR-MIA schedules that each of these planes heads up to EWR, then turns around and goes back to MIA.

Now, however, with the April 2007 schedule, it's a bit of a mystery to me how they're going to do this with just 2 inbound flights from MIA to EWR. According to AA.com, here's the new schedule:

#1970 Dp MIA 7:00a Ar EWR 9:55a, which turns around and heads back to MIA as #1623 Dp EWR 10:45a Ar MIA 1:35p

#1050 Dp MIA 8:00p Ar EWR 10:55p

Problem is, they are still operating flight #1999 Dp EWR 6:25p Ar MIA 9:30p (this too, like #2110 inbound from MIA is chronically late, usually 1+ hours).

Anyway, with the new schedule, where do they get the 757 to operate #1999 from?

I scanned the usual suspects into EWR: LAX, SJU and even DFW and ORD but those 757s are all spoken for.

Anyone have any ideas or better yet, info?

They aren't cutting it, error in the schedules. New MIA-EWR schedule:

AA 1970 MIA 0700-0955 EWR
AA 680 MIA 1430-1735 EWR
AA 1050 MIA 2000-2055 EWR

AA 1047 EWR 0615-0905 MIA
AA 1623 EWR 1045-1335 MIA
AA 1999 EWR 1825-2130 MIA

All 757s.

I'll assume you mean 2000-2255? Do you see AA adding back a mid-morning flight MIA-EWR? Or are LGA and JFK taking care of it?
