F9 adds LAS-CLT

A good alternative to Americans typically high fees on the same route. Part of me wonders if this is preemptive move against Spirit. Also another RON on an already crammed Concourse A.

Re: Lufthansa A350 arrives in CLT!

It has nothing to do with the performance of the route or AA, IIRC all A330s are being moved to FRA so the flight had to go to an A350. It was going to eventually become an A350 but was moved up to counter Americans CLT-MUC flight. It has been well known here for a while now. But the slow drive by ...
