AA/Eagle SAF-LAX Flights Vulnerable?

Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:21 pm

Considering that AA is in bankruptcy, plus the fact that Eagle now flies ABQ-LAX, could AA's SAF-LAX flights be vulnerable?

The SAF-LAX flights have not performed quite as well as the SAF-DFW flights, and considering that SAF-DFW will remain with two flights this summer (instead of the four offered last summer), SAF-LAX could be vulnerable. AA once tried ROW-LAX and it flopped, and perhaps with AA's bankruptcy SAF-LAX could face the same fate.

What does anyone think?

I would think that route is just as vulnerable as any other route, on any other airline these days -- not much patience for pretty much any flight that doesn't make a profit and carry its weight these days... And of course we're talking yields and not just LFs. But I don't think bankcruptcy has anything to do with it -- either the flight is profitable or it's gone.

Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter):

I am surprised by this. I thought with all the movie industry related people that live in and around SAF and that travel to LAX, that the LAX flights would do quite well.

On the other hand, if they have not been doing well why have they continued.

Maybe, with the studios in ABQ, that the NM-LAX travel is ABQ-LAX.

All in all it is interesting.

In general, any flight not connected to DFW or MIA is vulnerable at AA right noq
