Not that surprising to see the CLT F9 reductions. Not only is it the slower winter period but it is AA's sheer dominance in schedules (4-5x day each on CLT-SAT/AUS) that leaves very little low hanging fruit for F9.

AA is on PHL-MEM with 2-3 ERJ's a day based on the season. PHL-MEM averages 90-100 PDEW so there might be some room considering AA's flights carry con...
