This would make 20 new routes from AA since the merger
In addition to PHX-FAR/CID/BIS/BNA/MSY, other possible adds by AA out of PHX include PHX-BUF, PHX-CVG, PHX-LIT, PHX-SDF, PHX-TUL, and PHX-ICT.
There are still many WN frequent flyers in Greater Phoenix who prefer to fly WN over AA due to WN having nonstop service out of PHX to destinations such as BUF, MDW, CLE, DAL, FLL, HOU, LIT, SDF, BNA, MSY, TUL, and ICT that aren't served nonstop out of PHX on AA.
There are some adds that could be made by WN out of PHX, including (a) the return of PHX-BOS nonstop service, (b) extension of PHX-CVG nonstop service to daily, year-round nonstop service, and (c) the addition of PHX-CLT, PHX-GRR, PHX-BDL, PHX-HNL, PHX-LGB, PHX-MEM, and PHX-IAD nonstop service. WN does need to add some more nonstop routes out of PHX in order to defend market share against AA in the PHX market.
BUF - PHX has been a huge moneymaker for WN ...... AA would be smart to try competing against WN and start direct flights. WN averages 90% seat utilization each month with this route.
AA is starting to tap into the Buffalo market more ..... with MIA DFW PHL and CHI. So AA from BUF - PHX doesnt seem impossible.
