Good adds for AA - these all make a lot of sense and should perform well.

I think the following domestic routes would also play to AA's strengths and round out their network:
PHX-COS
PHX-XNA
PHX-MSY
PHX-BNA
DFW-CAK
DFW-CRW
DFW-PVD

It would also be nice to see LAX-PIT come back. I was surprised when they cut that one.

Did you mean something else? Because the OP says this WAS one of the adds.

No, I didn't mean something else. The OP says PHL-XNA is one of the adds.

AA should consider adding PHX-YYZ and PHX-YYC, you got snowbird pax along with options to connect at PHX.

What kind of demand is there for YYZ-PHX? I'm guessing Toronto pax are more likely to fly to the Gulf Coast areas than AZ. Tends to lean eastern NA to the Gulf and western NA to AZ/CA/w-Mex.

RIC has plenty more to add before PHX from WN.

That said, PHX was one of WN's first adds at CVG, so its possible.

The only major markets AA is missing now is LAX-DTW/YYZ and DFW-PTY (for Asia connections due to the Panama Canal business and the port).

Has AA even flown DTW-LAX in the last 30 years? UA's DTW-SFO was gone for a long time - and that had the attraction of TPAC destinations not served by NW.

I would like to see AA add PIT-LAX back but they tried it and dropped it. I think it would do well maybe three or four times weekly to target the business side since NK does PIT-LAX and they go after lesurie traffic. UA is dropping CRW and CAK from IAH so that maybe a good sign for AA for competion or a bad sign since those markets can’t be sustained from IAH. PVD passengers can always connect in PHL and CLT plus they have Boston and NYC that offers more options for those headed west.

Seconded on LAX-PIT. As far as more DFW expansion, I'd also add DFW-LNK/YWG/ALB/ROC/SYR/FCA*/PWM*/BCN*/HEL* as possibilities with FCA, PWM, BCN, and HEL as summer seasonal service.

This used to exist. I had the "pleasure" of my first ever CRJ-200 experience on COS-PHX in 2005. It was HP Express at the time. I can't remember exactly when it went away, sometime after the US merger.

I would think both CLT and DCA could support a daily CRJ-700 or E-175 from ISP. Quite a large catchment area around ISP.

I don't see DFW-HEL as a productive use of an aircraft. There is not much traffic between the two cities and not enough connections beyond HEL that make sense to DFW passengers (assuming a 1 stop journey). There is too much backtracking from HEL to European destinations. , plus LHR is better for European connections. HEL would be good for Russia (but is there enough DFW-Russia traffic...) and some Asian routes, however Transpacific makes more sense for DFW (DFW-HEL-PVG: 9,828mi, DFW-NRT-PVG: 7,546mi)

I was thinking Russia, seasonal Scandinavian and Baltic traffic, and Indian VFR traffic. Once Finnair gets a bunch of 321neos, I'm expecting them to start flowing traffic to secondary India in a big way.

I'm surprised AA doesn't already fly PHX-COS/MSY/BNA. The same went with RDU until they recently launched it. You'd think all of those would work. My bet is that BNA will come first.

As someone else pointed out, AA (or US, at least) has flown PHX-COS in the past. I think it would make sense for them to re-connect that spoke since COS has no westbound options on AA as of now.

Agreed regarding MSY, BNA, and (until recently) RDU. Those are all markets with strong AA presence and brand recognition, so I'd be surprised if AA wasn't able to make a daily 319/320 flight work to each of them from PHX.

I've flown PHX-BNA on AA, back in the hub days at BNA. Now they are hubbed at PHX & it no longer makes economic sense? HP used to cover COS & MSY, too bad AA hasn't retained the routes.

Pretty sure LAX-MSP is a major market that’s missing as well, although this has been tried unsuccessfully recently.

Another "I'm surprised AA doesn't already fly" is from DFW to ROA/CHO. They seem to be the 2 largest Southeastern cities (Legacy USAir only) that would benefit exponentially from a nonstop to Dallas. The flights from ORD to both of those cities have become the most heavily flown for pax numbers (at least for CHO). I would think the same would happen for DFW.

At least during the winter, there is huge demand from Canada to PHX my friend. We are inundated with "snow birds" every season. And you contradicted yourself here: and western NA to AZ/CA/w-Mex
PHX is in AZ.

2nd that, PHX is one of the largest holes from BDL. US actually flew the route in the mid to late 2000's after HP.

I think the question with BNA-PHX is what does it provide passengers that BNA-LAX doesn't? AA needs frequency on the LAX route to compete with WN and DL nonstop and probably to some extent with UA to SFO for connections. I'm sure AA gets plenty of premium revenue up front to LAX from biz folks and entertainment industry (it's rare to take that flight and not see a celeb sneak on at the last minute) then supplement that with O&D and connecting leisure pax filling up Economy.

Adding another West Coast(-ish) flight would just be competing against themselves for connecting passengers. It's a lot of time tying up an aircraft as well for no real system-wide benefit.

Good adds for AA - these all make a lot of sense and should perform well.

AA did fly this from 2013-2015 before ending in part because of operational issues.


Yeah, bumping 5-30 pax 40% of the time on a 2.5 hr CRJ tourture flight was an operational issue!

With IAH cancelled I think 1-2 daily CR7 would work, probably lose a CLT flight to do it though.

DTW-LAX is a big hole in the AA network.


Has AA even flown DTW-LAX in the last 30 years? UA's DTW-SFO was gone for a long time - and that had the attraction of TPAC destinations not served by NW.


UA had brought back DTW-SFO nonstop service back in June 2017.

I agree that AA adding DTW-LAX nonstop service might happen since DTW is one of the top markets traveled to from Greater Los Angeles that AA doesn't currently serve nonstop from LAX. DTW also already has nonstop service to the West Coast on AS, NK, and UA in addition to DL. AA also has more market share at LAX than any other airline, even though LAX is a hub for AA, DL, UA, and AS.

Other top domestic destinations traveled to from Greater Los Angeles that AA doesn't currently serve nonstop from LAX include BOI, BUF, CVG, CLE, MCI, MEM, MKE, MSP, GEG, and TPA.

My brother lives near TRI, so having another option to connect through is great. Current options were only CLT or ATL. Not great if a storm is impacting the Piedmont.
