Re: American Airlines Schedules 787 & 772 On DFW-PHX-DFW

So compared to last year, except for DFWPHX, all is the same except for a few frequencies?

Quarter after quarter, PHLLHR is actually one of the highest revenue generating routes in the PHL TA network. Minus the main cabin, the amount of cargo plus front end corporate contract clientele the airline flies between the JV has sustained the route at 3X daily, and sometimes, 4X daily.
