AA to close Envoy bases in NYC

Thu Sep 10, 2020 6:52 pm

CHICAGO (Reuters) - American Airline’s (AAL.O) wholly-owned regional carrier Envoy is closing its bases at La Guardia and John F. Kennedy airports in New York as it “makes changes to its flying profile in 2021,” according to a memo from Envoy to employees seen by Reuters.

Seems consistent with the B6 plan, but how far has that advanced?

Where will the LGA slots go?

Envoy is opening a 175 base in Miami to replace it. Envoy does not have over-water ops on the certificate for now, so Republic will still be flying many of the Island routes, at least for a while. And I would think Republic will pick up the NYC ops, feeding traffic into the new AA/B6 plan.

Did you read the article you linked?

"American is expected to shift some JFK and LaGuardia airport slots to JetBlue and in return JetBlue will help feed traffic to American’s international destinations next year."

I wrote this a while back on JetBlue thread on what AA could drop from just dropping 44/50 seaters. It's not clear to me how many of the 44/50 seaters are operated by Envoy.

"CLE - All E40 station and they still managed to be the lowest fare carrier here. Not a great combination. I see AA dropping both LGA/JFK
CVG - Another All E40 station where they were the lowest fare carrier. Only 2 flights a day scheduled in, easy drop.
IND - Just 2 flights with a E40 + E75. DL dominates here and AA is the lowest fare carrier
YYZ/YUL - all E40s to Canada. Cross border traffic will be down for a while and still dominated by Canadian carriers. They were never competitive here.
And then there are stuff like CAK/CHO/CAE/SDF/MEM/RIC/ROA/PWM where it seems very likely for them to drop since those are all E40 markets with probably not enough demand post covid to justify service. There are other routes that I think they will keep around but will see fewer flights as they upgauge from E40/E75 up to more efficient aircraft. Just based on the effect of eliminating E40s and lower post-COIVD demand, I think AA is going to be cutting 40 to 50 flights."

My guess is that you will see a lot of these slots leased to JetBlue to fly Florida and other leisure stuff.

I feel like Envoy should have been spun off from AA years ago. Envoy mostly flies to markets that really don't "need" air service anyways so to me, Envoy is just a burning pit of money at this point.

I feel like DL has really been upping the ante at LGA with its new A220s. Envoy aircraft are probably getting to be less and less competitive, whilst smaller business markets getting to be increasingly challenging given the seismic shift of aviation resources to VFR and leisure travel as business travel remains drastically reduced for the foreseeable future...

Envoy will have it by the time they enter the market. Look for YX to lose their AA flying in MIA and take all of NYC for themselves to feed B6 and AA.

It is actually the contrary, Envoy generates a profit for AA, same goes for PSA and PDT.

1. Envoy is a regional airline, the business model is no different than the other 12 regionals in the US.

2. The last few places I’ve flown on Envoy metal include MCI, CVG, PVD, MSP, and EWR. You know, small markets that “don’t really need air service”.

Regional airlines in general are an outdated relic of the "hub and spoke" model which is no longer viable. All regional flying should stop because it's wasteful.

In what ways are regionals “wasteful”? As much as I hate to admit it, regionals can do the same job for a lot less money. It’s no different than outsourcing factory work to Mexico or China.

Would I love to see all flying done by mainline? Absolutely. But until the cost differential begins to narrow, this isn’t going to happen. Scope will continue to be maxed out.

Also, your comment about a relic of the old hub-and-spoke system is uninformed as well. Yes, there are regionals that continue to fly from major hubs to tiny outstations. But there are also regionals that fly 1,000+ NM flights regularly. Why? Because it’s CHEAPER to have a regional fly from MIA to MSP Or SFO to MSN than it is for mainline. Geography wise, there’s not much “regional” about those flights.

Well, it's news to me that the hub-and-spoke model is no longer viable! In fact, the pandemic has arguably caused the biggest hub-and-spoke carriers to focus more on their highest-connectivity hubs - DFW, ATL, DEN, CLT, DTW, ORD, etc. over the likes of SFO/LAX/DCA/LGA/JFK/BOS that are less focused on connections.

Sure, UA and AA have been announcing some uncharacteristic point-to-point routes to make a play for leisure demand they weren't capturing before, but as long as the U.S. continues to have small cities with robust economies such as MSN, GSP, FSD, MDT, ICT, HSV, AZO, and on and on, there will be a need and a purpose for the hub-and-spoke model.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

This makes perfect sense, if only due to competition. Envoy's aging 50 seat RJs were no longer competitive at JFK and LGA. E-Jets and codeshared B6 flights will offer a much better experience vs. DL and, for those that use EWR, UA. In South Florida, there is actually far less competition when it comes to small market routes. Recent American Eagle additions like MIA-DAY/JAN actually seem like a great use of 50 seat RJ capacity IMO.

Lets focus on your comment about regionals that continue to fly from major hubs to tiny outstations, specifically the Envoy flights that operate from DFW. Why does Envoy continue to fly routes such as JLN, LAW, ROW, MAF, ACT, TYR and such? The markets could very well be profitable, but most of the markets don't "need" air service. Why not shift these aircraft from these routes and move them over to mainline routes? You've pointed out that regional jets are cheaper to operate on longer duration flights so that should equate to more profit, correct? Why fly an E145 to ACT when DFW is 90 miles away, or fly to TYR when the drive to DFW is less than 1.5 hours? Bottom line, Envoy does a lot of these "hops" to these outstations in the middle of nowhere while air service is cut a larger, more populous areas.

Envoy is not a charity, they fly to these cities because they make money. ROW and MAF are both in the middle of nowhere, there aren’t really other options for those markets.

You’re assuming these are loss-making routes, and that’s just not the case. If they were, they would either be cut or be subsidized by the government, most of which are not.

And again, SkyWest, Air Wisconsin, Piedmont, and Endeavor all fly routes similar to these for the same reason: they make money.

AA (DL and UA also) are network carriers, they derive value from flying people to the nearest reasonable airport. The reason TYR, ACT, JLN, LAW and ROW have air service is because people actually pay money to go there. Obviously not 300 people (or else they would be on E175s or larger), but people pay to skip the 75 mile or longer drives.

They've been doing it in small quantities for quite a while. I flew on a PSA CR9 in early spring both directions DFW-SAV-DFW and the CR9 at the gate next to us was also PSA, but I didn't catch where it was going. That also wasn't the first time I'd seen them there, but again, it's been rare.


SBN-CLT has been operated by a PSA CR9 for quite some time now however it looks like AA in October is going to be back to the OO flow thru flights again with DFW-SBN-CLT and CLT-SBN-DFW. Using an OO 65-seat CR7.


AA changed their mind on flow thru on these flights. SBN-CLT now operated by PSA with 65 seat CRJ700's and SBN-DFW operated with Skywest CR700's.

Not yet - that being said they actually are not too terrible from the numbers I've ran CASM wise compared to the E145s.

Envoy has officially announced E145 base closures and E140 fleet reductions;
- LGA and MIA (E145) bases to close 1/31.
- E140 fleet to retire.
- 15 more E175 inbound (9 Compass, 6 new) for a total of 101 x E175 and 58 x E145 at Envoy.

Not shocked with the E140 retirement. AA has been trimming fleets and with AA investing in HEPA filters on the 50 seaters to claim 100% of flights have it, the ROI for putting them on the 140s probably sealed the deal.

Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS) at BNA does the heavy checks for a number of E175 operators, so it seems that they’re sharing some of the work with Eagle Aviation Services, Inc. (EASI) at ABI for the Envoy E175 fleet.

Who does the heavy maintenance checks on the Envoy 175's?

Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services (EAMS) at BNA does the heavy checks for a number of E175 operators, so it seems that they’re sharing some of the work with Eagle Aviation Services, Inc. (EASI) at ABI for the Envoy E175 fleet.


Does ABI even have the capacity to handle the E175?


Yes, ABI has typically done the initial acceptance checks from the factory before entering revenue service, and performs heavy checks on both the 145 and 175 fleets.

Envoy has officially announced E145 base closures and E140 fleet reductions;
- LGA and MIA (E145) bases to close 1/31.
- E140 fleet to retire.
- 15 more E175 inbound (9 Compass, 6 new) for a total of 101 x E175 and 58 x E145 at Envoy.
Source: Company memo.


That pretty much guts a lot of the former LGA eagle flying and fully expected after the B6 announcement.

At this point AA is reducing it’s total fleet size (Eagle & Mainline) by 20% or so.
