History of American's St. Louis Hub

Hello Everybody, AA operated a hub in STL from 2001 to 2009, but that is all I know. So, I have a few questions. 1.) How many flights did AA operate at their peak? I know the first major draw-down occurred in late 2003 and 2004, 50% flights were cut along with Honolulu and Gatwick. How many flights ...

Re: What does WN do about NK?

I remember when Spirit was growing out like gangbusters at DFW it made WN sweat, they were pricing matching with NK on every route. Now I think there is an equilibrium in Dallas with the two.

Re: Largest non-hub AA stations?

I’m shocked mainline ramp doesn’t handle BNA. It’s currently contracted out to Envoy. RDU was also handled by Envoy before the merger. I don't know who does it know since U.S. Airways ramp was mainline before the merger. Does anybody know what the number of mainline flights a station operates befor...

jetBlue's Oakland Experiment

Hello Everybody, If I remember correctly in the mid to late 2000's jetBlue had a reasonably good sized operation out of Oakland with almost twenty flights a day. (I got that number from a news article about B6 expanding service but now I can't find it.) Now a days, they are down to three flights a d...

Re: Dallas/Fort Worth Aviation Thread (DFW/DAL) - 2019

I know American mainline operated out of the lower terminal B at one time I didn’t know they were coming back. When did mainline move out of terminal B the first time?

Any Original Pan Am or Eastern Pilots Still Flying?

Hello Everybody, About a week ago I was in Denver riding the underground train and I over heard two United pilots talking about the companies hiring plans. One said that all of New York Air guys are gone and People Express ones are starting to retire. So that got me thinking of the pilots of other d...

How Long Did It Take American to Retire the TWA Brand?

Hello Everybody, Once the merger between American and TWA was completed in December 2001 I was wondering how long it took American to repaint the planes, replace the interiors and, any other branding that might have needed to be taken care of? I suspect any plans they had to retire the brand as quic...

JetBlue tends to operate on the conservative approach on winter weather after the complete catastrophe at JFK ten years ago.

Re: TWA livery if they were around today?

I personally would have hoped that the 1994 livery would still be flying but, let's be honest it wouldn't. I think it would be a billboard TWA on the side and in the back ground the global close to the 94 livery. Tail would still have the horizontal TWA as well.

American at Love Field

With the debate over the gate situation at Love Field it has been mentioned that American has a two gate lease at DAL. Why do they have them if their megahub at DFW is only miles away?
