American is touting it's near 200 daily American, American Eagle/Business Express flights heavily in Boston these days. American Eagle is beefing up it's schedule with new flights to Montréal and Toronto. They are steadily replacing Business Express and soon American Eagle will be all over Boston. I would be sore if AE moves all these flights to JFK when the Terminal opens.
I believe they have unused rights to Rome, They got from TWA when they dropped the route about 8 years ago, and now that ALITALIA moved it's Rome-FCO flight to Milan-MXP, Rome is no longer served from Boston. They also have rights to Tokyo, but slot restraints at Narita have prevented them from capitalising on this route. United apparantly thinks that they'll be able to serve this route if the UA/US merger goes through, but I'd like to know where they plan to get the slots.
Overall I believe American's main focus in Boston will be American Eagle, and short haul flights.
Also, Trvlr, American initiated service to SAN first, with United following a few months later, but American advertised more, especially in the San Diego area, and after about a year, American increased their schedule and United dropped the route. Today American shows 4 flights from SAN-BOS, and 2 BOS-SAN (someone explain why their are two more flights on SAN-BOS, compared to BOS-SAN!). Just a little FYI!
