Tonight AA flight 1065 is scheduled to land at Lindbergh Field at 8:55, flying in nonstop from Miami! It's great to see this route back since its cancellation back in 1993. The return trip, flight 1042 is a 9:45pm departure; the roundtrip will be daily, year-round, and op'd with a 738.
It doesn't appear that there will be any major celebration at the gate, at least by the airport folks as there was no media alert. This is not unusual for a re-started route, nor for a night flight.
I can say that this is a long-awaited return and it's terrific that SAN is now connected to all of AA's major U.S. bubs -- DFW, ORD, MIA, JFK and LAX. Along with a new and enlarged Admiral's Club and all kinds of exciting OneWorld presence in town now, AA seems to be in a very nice position now here in SAN!
Another nice realization is that along with AS's route to MCO, SAN is now connected nonstop with two cities in Florida! To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time ever that has been the case. Consider that less than a year ago, we had no nonstop service at all to the state of Florida!
Congratulation to the Route Development folks at SDIA and to AA for making this happen.
