Maybe they do a SJC-AUS-SEA-AUS-SJC "V" routing? I haven't checked the scheduled flight times to see if the SJC-AUS flight can turn in AUS and do the SEA roundtrip, or if they get subbed in at SEA, etc.
The problem with that is that AUS
is an MD
-80 (God help us all...4 hours in an MD
-80!). I did, actually check to see if any SJC
flights were AA
on a 757, but they aren't. Needless to say I'm stymied, because the schedule made perfect sense to me, before this development. It gave AA
a good way to cycle the 757s used on AUS
flights throughout the network, by having one 757 arrive from DFW
in the afternoon. Go to SJC
, come back to AUS
late that same night. Leave to SJC
early next morning. Come back to AUS
that same afternoon, and then go to DFW
, while another 757 is on the ground waiting to do the same thing. Now, without that inbound DFW
flight, I don't understand the logistics of being able to continue the AUS
Unless they ferry an aircraft in every night (that doesn't seem reasonable at all) to do the early morning SJC
run, I'm puzzled.
Anybody have some more help!
