Re: Future of AA hub at PHX

This quote came from a FlightGlobal article late last year, in response to a blogger who predicted dehubbing: Vasu Raja, vice-president of network and schedule planning at American, told Snyder earlier October that Phoenix was no longer the east-west connecting hub for the airline as it was at US A...

Re: Future of AA hub at PHX

PHX also isn’t the least profitable hub. I forgot which thread it was but I believe numbers were posted showing MIA and LAX as less profitable (potentially JFK as well). I believe PHX is actually 3rd on a margin basis after DFW and CLT. The single most profitable flight (again on a margin basis) in...

Re: Future of AA hub at PHX

PHX is AA’s least profitable hub not located in a key intl market (MIA, NYC, and LAX). Also, it is heavily overlapping with DFW and LAX. So taking these factors into consideration, what is the future of AA at PHX? Well LAX is maxed out for AA at the moment so they couldn't absorb much, if any incre...

Re: LAX congestion getting out of control?

I have to agree with earlier comments that the bigger issue is the road that road that runs along the terminal buildings. The gridlock is atrocious. If you need to get to AS, UA, or AA, your quickest solution is to get off at the WN terminal and walk across. The drive around can take 30+ minutes.

El Paso is a tough market unless you are American, Southwest, or United. They own 90% of the market share and fly non-stop to the vast majority of the desired destinations of the local population. I will be surprised if Alaska’s new Seattle and San Diego service lasts more than a year.

Re: NH expanding North America routes in 2020

PHX doesn't have a chance. It's a OneWorld hub and would be AA/JL if anyone. The local traffic wouldn't meet the demand without feed that NH doesn't have in Phoenix 1.) You need to look at PHX-East Asia traffic, not solely PHX-Tokyo. NH's hub in Tokyo provides 1 connection flights to many eastern A...

LAX may be severely land/gate constrained, but AA essentially OWNS DFW and could expand there almost without restriction.

And ICT and SDF and LIT and FLL (although MIA covers it to an extent). It's interesting with limited LAX gates that they're choosing to avoid WN on PHX-SDF/TUL and go after LAX-SDF/TUL instead. They have chosen to go head to head with WN on PHX-OKC and now RDU, however. I think they're trying a 2 p...
