American Airlines will start new California service from San Jose to San Diego and Orange County. The new flights will start May 1, 1999. American Airlines is saying that these new flights reflects there new plan to expand routes on the west coast. Also, American Airlines wants to be the new big airline on the West Coast espically with it's merger with Reno Air. These new routes will probally operated with there MD-80 aircraft.
Like I said with my post below the West Coast is a hot market in the U.S and there will be alot of airlines starting new routes espically from Seattle, Las Vegas and Orange County. Also the regional airline market is growing on the West Coast espically in the Pacific Northwest with United Express and Horizon Air.
I think when the merger with Reno Air is really final American Airlines is going to start to do alot of things on the West Coast espiaclly with all the new aircraft they are getting. Look out United Airlines.
