What Happened To AA JFK-AUA Non-stop?

Thu Feb 09, 2012 6:27 am

I know AA used to fly JFK-AUA non-stop. I believe 2x or 3x weekly.

I can't find it anymore. Is it seasonal? Have they cut it?
I found it on flightaware under AA679. However, last flight recorded was on August 2011.
The flight number now corresponds to a cross crountry flight via DFW.
Any info on the past, present, and future of this route will be greatly appreciated.

AUA = Aruba (for those on an iPad)

It was probably cut due to jetBlue's once or twice daily, and delta through ATL.

I'm taking a look at the scheduling site and its 12/wk for the first half of this month:

B6 flt 755 X23
B6 flt 757 Daily

Then, the second half of this month is showing:

B6 flt 755 Daily
B6 flt 763 1,5 (2/17 - 2/27)
B6 flt 757 Daily

AUA must be doing quite well for us!!! LOL!

I looked hard and I can't find it either. I know for sure it used to operate Saturday only during the slow season. It appears to be another cut.

I'm seeing the last flight on November 12, 2011.

I'm sure the bankruptcy and competition from B6's, DL's, and UA's nonstops from NY have something to do with it, however, DL flying to AUA from ATL is pretty irrelevant considering AA flies 2 daily 757s from MIA. Why not mention US's CLT and PHL flights or UA's IAD, IAH, and ORD flights?

UA flies ORD-AUA mostly on the weekends. Ditto IAD too.

IAH and EWR are daily.
