American Eagle Expanding In MIA?

Thu Mar 07, 2013 4:45 am

As I was leaving work today I was talking to an AE employee and he told me
they were going to expand big by April. He said right now they were at about 75
flights a day by April they would be over 100. That they would be sharing gates
D50 & D51 from AA. With everything that's happening at AA & Eagle I'm suprised
they'd expand that much in a short period.

Any ideas what new routes or aircraft they will be using?

Embraers. Coming from DFW and LAX operations. Routes to the closed caribbean stations ex-SJU and also more domestic.

Yet. We've been hearing rumors lately. MIA is is crazy fat on pilots right now so it makes some sense. I'm surprised they haven't mentioned this to us yet, though.

They are building up there presence there. It'll be nice to eventually
see the CRJ's flying out of Mia soon. Beside the caribbean what domestic routes
could they start.

Existing MQ stations not served by MIA: MOB, HSV, JAN, TYS, CAE, GSP, LEX

New stations: OAJ, AGS

Expand: BHM, MEM, ORF, RIC

Just possible options off the very top of my head. There's many many more.

If it does happen could a CRJ make a MIA-SWF or HPN flight.
Is the demand there for those two routes?

Is the demand there to make the flight from either MIA-SWF
or MIA-HPN work on AE. Or would it be better suited on AA.

Like they did before and fly MIA-MCO with along with AA
or resume TPA

Not likely for Eagle. Those markets are big enough for mainline.

I know some possible routes were posted above. If AE getting
CRJ's in Mia. What domestic routes could they open?

SWF, HPN was mentioned as not doable. What about
DCA, PHL or BWI?

I know AE flies to ATL that used to be all AA main line.

I don't see any reason for eagle to fly PHL or DCA. Especially DCA it is a slot airport and it is a huge route for AA. I think it's 9 daily flights. Miami-DC is a very large market. BWI is a bit smaller of a market but again no point for eagle. Even though eagle did fly MIA-IAD with a ERJ-135 for a while a few years ago. Never understood that flight.

There are smaller cities in the south which are still not severed and maybe with US affiliates the 170 or 190 could do flights to a place like BUF or HPN.

NY-Florida always works...especially HPN.

Here's the thing...CRJ has a cost disadvantage over the 190s and 320s B6 is flying to FLL at the next gate.

Will they get the yield to make the flight possible?

They tried RDU-MCO on an ERJ a while back, and it didn't work out

What I ment to say about the DCA, PHL route through out the day
AA flies those routes half full and its been consistant. I know the majority
Of those flight leave full

Why not put a CRJ during those times the flights don't leave full.

I believe that's why they did it on the MIA-ATL route.

I don't see the need, espcially when...

If AA does get that expanded partnership with B6, I'm sure they'd rather leave the low-yielding routes to B6 so they can focus on premium markets.

CRAP!!!!!! More connecting through ORD to go to HPN and more
driving to FLL to fly to SWF on B6.

I don't know about PHL but there are only 3-4 PHL flights a day I think but DCA is not that empty. Also DCA has a decent amount of business traffic and business traffic wants frequency. The 738s do just fine. A CRJ on that flight makes no sense especially with limited First Class seating. I used to fly DCA-MIA-DCA about once every 1-2 months and I never had a flight that was close to empty. DCA is slot controlled so AA wants to use every slot it has. PHL is not so if PHL flights were empty they would just stop flying them. But I doubt the DCA flights are very empty it is a big market from MIA and AA is the only airline flying MIA-DCA.

With the merger between AA and US, not only it's unlikely we will see regional aircraft flying MIA-DCA/PHL, but we could even expect some new flights, as they will become hub-to-hub routes.

From DCA, MIA is the route where AA has more seats (10 daily 738), more than to DFW (also 10 daily but a mix of S80 and 738).

Once the merger with US is completed, both HPN and SWF will be served via PHL.

In my opinion, I think when AA finds a suitable regional airline partner to fly turboprop routes out of MIA as Eagle we will see the resumption of some intra-Florida routes such as RSW and perhaps even MLB, DAB, etc. As well as moving RJ routes to the Bahamas and Key West for example to turboprop. Leaving the RJ routes to other U.S. cities and perhaps introducing larger RJ routes to key points in the U.S. without MIA service or existing MIA RJ service, and maybe even some international flying.

what about Piedmont? They already do some prop flying via CLT and PHL....could we see them transfer some flying down to MIA?

Do the CRJs/ERJs have sufficient cargo space to make Caribbean flights work? I mean a lot of pax are bringing their entire household to check-in (well, sort of).

ERJ - yes. CR7 - yes. CR2 - nope! ATR - most definitely.
