That's what I counted this morning as well. Pretty sad, especially since some of the cuts are to transcon flights (SEA, LAX, SAN, LAS) that should be the ones that perform well at JFK.


They are cutting also JFK-MCO which I believe is 2x daily. Yes, it's incredible how many gates in T8 remain empty for a long period of time. I was there a few days ago. So the only transcon flights that will remain will be PHX, LAX and SFO. Gone already are SJC and SNA.

To clarify, SEA, SAN, LAS, etc. aren't cut completely. SEA, SAN, and LAS are each scheduled as 2x daily (previously have been 3x daily) and LAX is down to 11x daily from 12x daily (only one more frequency than DL at this point, and barely over half the capacity of DL on the route). BOS is gone; MCO is gone. On the regional side, YUL, CLE, ORF, and BWI are all each down to 1x daily (previously have been 2x daily).

I think the only increases over last summer are to hubs - PHX at 5x daily, DFW at 4x daily, ORD at 2x daily, and CLT at 7x daily. Several transatlantic routes have been upgauged (all TATL from JFK is 772/77W this summer), but we'll see how long those increases last.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

a little surprised DFW isn't higher than that. CLT also isn't as high as I expected given how much AA dominates there. JFK is higher than what I would've guessed, but that's probably mostly due to LHR profits. Also, ORD is higher than I expected given strength of UA in Chicago. Also, really not good numbers out of MIA and LGA.


This is the airline industry. The profit margins stated above at CLT, DCA, and DFW are excellent. You will not see profit margins at hubs of any major U.S. carrier in the 20%+ range, and rarely will you see them in the high teens.

It is crazy how big AA has gotten in Key West.

They now serve it from Miami, Charlotte, Washington DC, Dallas, Chicago and I think Philadelphia too.

DL for example serves Key West only from ATL and I think they are starting LGA soon. Even with LGA that's just 2 cities.

I was a little surprised by this route too, I think the argument would be that it is a hub route since TYO is a OW hub similar to the RDU to LHR route.


Isn't RDU also subsidized or there is some sort of a guarantee from RTP/local corporations? The only other p2p's I can think of in the AA network are some seasonal stuff to CUN.

Look at routes like KEF, DBV, BUD -- they seem to be willing to take more risks as of late.


There has been a revenue guarantee in the past for the route, but the group that guarantees it states that they've never actually needed to use it. It may have since expired but a seems to make plenty of money RDU-LHR and that's why they keep flying it 25 yrs later

It was GlaxoSmithKline, and the revenue guarantee has expired.

It''s a shame HP/US=AA had a nice small/Red eye hub out of Las vegas that I used over PHX when possible due to the Club room help and easy connections when they worked. I'ts a shame they couldn't of kept presences there.

It's from people that doen't live in the Western part of the US. LAX is a gatway hub PHX is a connection hub. They work together well


So will people shift their mind that PHX is not making money and less profitable? It can be argued that MIA, JFK, LGA and LAX should be dehubbed based on this data.... (sorry I am just tired of hearing about PHX

The director of EMEA sales at AA, Tom Lattig, has announced that routes to Poland are "high on the priority list". This means that it will turn out that they actually aren't and instead we can expect PHL - OTP or PHL - BEG in 2020.

Has the expanded 900 daily flight schedule been loaded for DFW yet? Does anyone know an opening date for the satellite terminal E there also? I’m flying in June to LRD and wondering if I will get a chance to use it.

Yes, they flew it for a few years in the early 2000s on the 763. I'm thinking it was a 2003 - 2005 time frame. I'm sure someone here will know the exact dates.

DFW-ZRH stated in June 2000. They move ORD-ZRH over to DFW. I forget when it was discontinued. Around 2006 maybe.

It was a 777 for awhile and a 767-300ER at other times.

I wonder if they could make this route work now? This route came to mind while looking at international routes out of DFW that AA doesn't currently fly.

If DFW - AMS is doing well, I don't see why DFW - ZRH couldn't work. A lot of business passengers and a lot of connections at DFW.

    Amsterdam demand is a lot more spread throughout the States and there is a lot more lieusre traffic.

    Zürich traffic is far more concentrated to major markets. Miami would be the logical place if AA wanted to add another ZRH flight. The local market is huge and the fares are high. Although competing with Swiss’ two daily flights and full service product would be difficult.

    AA/BA always go to 5x daily MIA-LHR in the winter. The difference is that this year AA is operating the 5th frequency instead of BA.

    Hasn’t been 5x in a while. Last winter was 3x BA/1z AA, winter before that it was 2x each. This winter 3x BA/2x AA.

    Don’t forget Douglas, AZ. AA once flew that too.

    I'm surprised CLT does not have more European flights. I guess the O&D game is stronger at PHL? Also I would think CLT would be a better hub because of the connecting traffic.

    PHL is better positioned geographically, on top of having more O&D than CLT.

    JFK-MIA will continue to see the 763 for a while, and maybe DFW from time to time. But yes you are right, there'll be no more 767s flying international out of JFK. On AA's metal only 777 like you say, and maybe 787 if JFK ever sees it when more of them come into the fleet. Gone also is the 757 on TATL runs. I don't think JFK will ever see the A330, as far as AA is concerned.

    I wonder how achievable the goal of 900+ departures at DFW by this summer is now that 24 planes are grounded.

    Most of the growth at DFW is on regional aircraft. They're mainly cutting from the less profitable hubs like LAX/MIA/JFK.

    AA isn’t cutting at LAX nor MIA. Not sure where your making that stuff up.

    Check the OAG thread for today. Multiple frequency reductions from LAX/MIA just for April. It doesn't carry over into the summer for now.

    Comment regarding the new ORD - ATH route

    According to American Airlines Sales Manager, Southeast Europe, Angelo Camilletti, the important element is the investment American Airlines is making to the Greek market. “Because we are boosting our capacity from 291 seats (seats available on the Airbus 330) to 525 daily seats, one-way, which means that we are increasing our capacity in 2019 by 80 percent for the Greek market,” Camilletti said.

    As announced during a press conference on Thursday, the summer seasonal flight will operate as of May 4 until September 29 and will be flown on the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 aircraft.

    “American’s Philadelphia – Athens route is a very strong route and when the airline begins its new service to Chicago, it will be flying to two destinations from the Greek capital, offering a double daily service,” said Ioanna Papadopoulou, Director, Communications & Marketing of AIA.

    The new routes from Chicago like Athens, Barcelona and Venice have been doing very well.

    They need to extend the seasonal season and cover April too.

    All the cuts for April were Max 8 related.

    Surprise surprise. Miami is where most of the 737-MAX flying is. So there are temporary cuts in frequency. Miami is also where most of the widebody/757 flying is, so it's easy to sub in bigger planes to replace two flights. LAX is the second largest Max flying station, IIRC, and a similar situation.

    Meanwhile in the first two months of 2019, AA traffic at MIA is up 7.54% and American Eagle is up 5.87%. Looks like lots of cutting!

    While I agree with the rest of your post regarding AA not making cuts to MIA overall (the hub will have ~350 daily departures this summer), I want to point out that based on the current S19 schedule, MIA actually won't see that much 757 flying. DFW will have by far the most 757 flights this summer (22 daily departures) while MIA actually has fewer than 10 daily 757 departures. Even PHX will have more 757 departures this summer (although that won't last for long as the domestic 757s retire later this year). Times sure have changed! At least AA moved MIA-VVI and MIA-BSB from the 7M8 back to the 757...

    Also, in S19 DFW will be the widebody leader for AA with 36 daily departures on 787s and 777s. MIA will have 25-26 daily departures on 767s and 777s, followed closely by PHL with 23-25 daily departures on 767s and A330s.
    This is my signature until I think of a better one.

    Does anybody know how the sales for BLQ and DBV are doing. AA seem to be interested in the summer European leisure strategy; so could we see more adds for 2020?

    My guesses are:
    Bilbao, Spain
    Faro, Portugal
    Valencia, Spain
    Bordeaux, France
    Lyon, France

    Rumor is that DBV is doing well, but BLQ along with TXL aren't selling well. I could see AA adding WAW or VIE next.
