Any Chance We Could See AA/AE At MLB?

Mon Dec 12, 2011 7:27 am

The topic says it all. There were talks in the past of MLB-MIA service on AE/AA. Any news or any possible new developments in MLB?

I love flying in and out of MLB. Glad to see DL uppgrading service this spring with the DC-9's and MD-88's on the schedule. Seems like DL has a goldmine at this airport...

Any idea how the US flights are doing to CLT?

It would be great to see UA-CO return with a IAD or ORD flight

I think MLB suffers from too many other airports within a reasonable drive.

Of course MCO pulls traffic with high volume of flights and carriers (including LFC). SFB has some traffic as well. You've got DAB to the north and PBI to the south. Just not that much high yield consistent traffic to justify many more seats that you have now.

I, too, enjoy using MLB. I can recall flying out of MLB on EA back in the day... good times.
I want to live in an old and converted 727...

The ATR seems to be on the way out of service for AA/AE, and that was the only viable option for MLB in my opinion.

A very nice dream indeed!

Nah... we'll be cursed, uh, blessed flying those for decades to come.

Maybe they will get some -600s with IFE! I hear those are a big step up!
