OAK will be a parking spot for some of the fleet. So I suspect that's where it was heading. Had not heard of OAK being a parking spot, only GSO, OKC and SAT. Guess they need more space with the additional flight pull down. I know a couple of Q400 for QX are stored at Hillsboro, OR and several might...Jump to post
And now Elite is being kicked out of Vero Beach because of unpaid bills. This sounds like it is going to be the end for them.

The current status of the fleet... CRJ-200/100: N97EA - parked for over a year N79EA - parked for two months N321EA - deregistered N93EA - parked for two years N154EA - 4 months N96EA - active (planned Midwest aircraft, used only for charter operations). CRJ-701: N83EA - active N24EA - parked for 5...Jump to post
They always had a strange business model in terms of scheduled flights. They cut everything here at MLB, and now just use it to store their planes and do maintenance. I remember when they had their MLB-BIM flight, they would sometimes have 1 or 2 people per flight. Not even kidding.Jump to post
Not a substitution, but AA is taking this time to bring their 77W's to MLB for cabin fittings. We always have 2 here at a time, and they are cycled pretty regularly.Jump to post

During my few times looking at PHL-MCO / MLB flights, MLB was much higher compared to MCO that the extra ~1hr drive to MCO from where I was visiting wasn't an issue. I'm talking $200+ difference. That is exactly it. Makes no sense to drop a huge amount when MCO is a short drive over. We need a LCC ...Jump to post

Forgive me because I don't know much about this stretch of FL coast but is this a popular area for British/Irish tourists? I know this airport also "serves" Orlando but it is 25 minutes further to Disney than SFB (but probably less traffic congestion). The idea is to have easier access to...Jump to post

Major announcement tomorrow at MLB. https://twitter.com/FlyMLB/status/1191117411749154823
The thumbnail looks to be a 787... and I have heard rumors of a European Charter Airline.
MLB is getting AA mainline again, so happy to see that again!Jump to post
I think that they can still consider adding a few more underserved markets in the North East and South East, in the North East markets such as ALB, SYR, ROC, BUF, SWF, BDL and MDT, and in the South East markets such as SAV, HHH, MLB, ...look at what small markets on the East Coast that they are sti...Jump to post

Well overdue for MLB. With Elite ending scheduled flights here, it will be nice to see more AA here to take the place. Well, you're right...but when did this happen? How did you find out?

Another A321 to MLB for Wifi upgrade. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/AAL9610/history/20190321/1400Z/KCLT/KMLB I don't understand why they wouldn't put a hold on Wifi upgrades and send these planes to MIA to cover all the cancellations happening due to the MAX grounding and 14 Oasis planes out ...Jump to post
FPR. It doesn't have any scheduled air service either. I imagine there are plenty of GA international traffic, though.Jump to post
Honestly I'd like to see them start DEN-BIL. Given how they've been re-opening old stations, I think it's a possibility. Something exceptionally random would be cool too...like DEN-GNV weekend service. But that's probably too crazy even for F9! GNV would absolutely win craziest route announcement. ...Jump to post
Hi all, Following the introduction of a successful thread on UA at ORD, I'm interested to hear your thoughts on AA's position. There was another thread ("What AA Needs to do at ORD" by CHI2DFW) that fizzled out around a year ago, so I want to rekindle the discussion following AA's recent ...Jump to post
Didn't realize B6 was discontinuing DAB. Wonder if they would consider MLB? Wouldn't surprise me actually. I think MLB is about to go through a pretty big expansion, they are adding an exit off the interstate that directly links it up with the airport. They wouldn't do this unless there was an actu...Jump to post
I saw this. Let's see how long they last. Well, looks like that would be December 6th, according to their Reservation calendar. Nothing available (X's shown) through December of next year. Couldn't even get through the Holidays! Also looks like the MLB tag to Bimini ends as well. I am really baffle...Jump to post

I wouldn't mind seeing AA fly to DCA from MLB. It makes sense, we had Eastern/Delta/USA3000/Direct Air/Presidential Airways all in the past fly to the Washington area. There has been an explosion in population here with the addition of all these engineering companies lately.Jump to post

That’s pretty much what I heard. There are four AA Airbus aircraft that I can see, plus an AC Airbus and Elite CRJ sitting over on that maintenance ramp. Good thing people are on high alert.

Quick question regarding Orlando Melbourne International Airport. Could Frontier make a DEN-MLB work? Or PHL/TTN/ISP - MLB work? I really doubt MLB could make Denver work. The only reason ISP would ever start is if Frontier wants to rune Elite out of the market. But MCO is so close, and the MLB-ISP...Jump to post

They have 11 CRJs, what is their fleet utilization?
