AA hasn't been as keen as UA has on using the E75 on longer (1500+ miles) routes so I don't seem them going down that route either but never say never.
No more so than GRR...and people said that about RDU too. I actually think CVG and CLE are the two biggest holes in AA’s network out of PHX. I don’t think they are going to attack BNA. BDL is another possibility.
GRR is seasonal for that reason; it can't support the route year round. GRR is also 200 miles closer to PHX.
