When Is American Connection Going To Be Gone?

Sun Mar 24, 2013 9:36 pm

American Connection was TW Express out of St.Louis,Since American dismantle the STL hub America Connection has been operating out of ORD. Are they going to be gone or just be rebranded as American Eagle? What about US Air express? will it be American Eagle also?

This has popped up a few times in other threads, and I believe what was said was that it would all eventually be rebranded as Eagle. When and if Eagle is sold off it will be sold off under another name and then Eagle will be the regional brand name for all of the airlines that fly for American.

Skywest and Expressjet already operate as American Eagle ("operated by..."), instead of American Connection, so Chautauqua should follow, as they are the only carrier operating with the American Connection titles.

Given that the RP contract probably will not be renewed in 2015, it may not be worth changing the titles.

It was already announced that "Connection" would be going away and "Eagle" would be the brand for all regionals. A timeline was not announced when the name would disappear but it's definitely in the works.

Not renewed for L-AA, L-US or both? RAH has allot of eggs in the US contract basket.

Both. It makes sense to take care of RAH's eggs in the basket with E-jet flying, not 50 seaters.

RP is just the Chautauqua Airlines certificate. RP is ending all flying for US in the next couple of months and transferring those ERJ-145s to Delta flying. The YX (Republic Airlines) flying for both US and AA are contracts entirely separate of the RP ERJ contracts. Even if the RP contract is not renewed at its next expiration, the new AA will still be RAH's largest customer by a relatively wide margin, followed by UA and DL respectively.
Good goes around!
