Re: AA Announces New Intl/Domestic Flights for 2019

a.net told me almost 6 years ago that by October of 2018 PHX would be reduced to a spoke with <30 flights a day. So far, nobody's mentioned PHX.

Sorry if it has already been discussed but we have some good news. AS appears to be returning their SFO-PHX flight 2 times daily for spring 2019. Now if only we can get it year round.

Also service on this route will be on the ex-VX airbus series!
