AA S19 Departures By Hub And Aircraft Type

Wed Apr 17, 2019 5:42 pm

As I've done in past years, I have gone through the online schedules of the US3 (AA, UA, DL), and have tallied up departures by aircraft type for each hub in order to get a picture of how each airline is currently deploying its fleet across the U.S. I picked a Monday in the middle of the summer (July 15, 2019) and collected schedule data from the same day for all three airlines so that comparisons can be made. It is also interesting to see how things have changed over the years - here are some links to related threads for reference:

2018:
AA - https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1396833
UA - https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1396837
DL - https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1396835

2019:
UA - https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1420611
DL - https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1420613

A few notes/disclaimers:
  • This data was collected by hand, so it's possible there are a few inaccuracies. However, I have a high level of confidence in the data overall.
  • Schedules are always subject to change, so the totals from when I collected data may already have changed slightly, and may change further in the coming weeks. Notably, I collected the AA data before they removed the 7M8 from their schedules through mid August, so AA hubs in particular might end up looking different depending on how fast the MAX gets back in the air. I thought this would still be interesting data to share since it shows what AA was intending to operate given full access to their fleet.
  • As we know, the term "hub" is always unavoidably subjective. For the purpose of these threads, I'm classifying a "hub" as a station that has 100+ departures serving 30+ destinations.
  • I don't have plans to do this for any other airline's network this summer - if someone would like to make a thread like this for AS, AC, etc., wonderful! Please use 7/15/2019 as the schedule date for a fair comparison.
  • For simplicity's sake, I decided not to split out different subfleets in the tallies. International 757-200s will be aggregated with domestic 757-200s, 70-seat E-175s with 76-seat E-175s, and so on and so forth. I'm also using airline-agnostic aircraft codes, so if a given airline classifies their 737-700s as "73W" (looking at you, DL), the data here will still show "73G" instead.

Enjoy!

AA also runs an A332 PHL-SFO w/the aircraft overnighting SFO such as in LAX.
I realize SFO is not a hub city but simply illustrating these 2 flights are very popular to both cities and help utilization of a widebody other than TATL.
watch what you want. you may get it.

Have to show what a disaster it has become for AA

Technically, the AA hub is NY (not either airport)

Pre 7M8 cuts (so at the same time I pulled the data for the other hubs), it was something like this:

ERD: 13
ER4: 2
E75: 4
319: 1
320: 2
738: 26
321: 21
752: 3
763: 1
772: 9
77W: 3

Total = 85
77.6% mainline

JFK was excluded from the initial data because it no longer meets the 100+ departures to 30+ destinations criteria I used to determine where my cutoff was.

That's fair enough, but it is really nice to see the data for this summer, while they have drawn down service for the runway construction.

As long as they've got a gate map for JFK in their magazine, I'm considering it a hub. http://americanway.ink-live.com/html5/r ... 78c1941262
And just as soon as the construction on the runway is done this year, they have said they are planning to return to 2018 flight levels.

Another MAGNIFICENT job on this; how you have the time & patience to do this blows me away. Thank you for it.

For all the PHX-bashers in other threads who kept going on and on and on and on ad nauseum about PHX being dehubbed (or that it would be/should be)...I see we've only lost 6 departures YOY vs. 2018. Hmmm. Guess PHX isn't being dehubbed.

Such a nice ADDITION seeing that 772 to LHR!

Says who?

From aa.com:

“American has hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.”

That is the same thing it said last year and the year before that.

Yes. I believe BOS was just over 90 departures on the date I had looked at. Almost entirely to hubs, with MDT, ROC, and SYR still hanging on for now.

PHX has the 2nd highest mainline % of all of the hubs and has 176 daily mainline flights. For reference ORD has 219 daily mainline flights.

The CVGs, CLEs, STLs, etc. had a much higher percentage of RJ vs. Mainline when they met their ultimate fate.

Ive just heard that come next month, AA will be stopping the usual layover night flight/early morning flight from GCM to MIA. Is this just down to the MAXs still being grounded and aircraft then needed elsewhere? We have seen that our 2nd afternoon flight has been cancelled during the week but it seems that this is coming back and we are dropping the night flight in and morning flight out.

Anyone know the reason?

Are you trying to imply something? The mainline % is actually up. And 540+ departures daily with good biz contracts. Seriously?

I'm simply implying all of the doom and gloom about PHX appears to be unfounded (although the shrinking of the pilot and FA bases is worrisome).

I used ORD as an example as nobody has said that AA would dehub ORD.

Solid numbers from CLT, as per usual. I expect the numbers flights to grow into the 720s by summer 2020. AA will be getting 7 additional gates in early 2020 to help this cause.

Thanks for putting this together.

I am surprised to see more 752 departures a day in DFW than in MIA, or even in PHL. MIA now sees only 8 752 departures a day, I was expecting more than that. Where do the 757s that fly to DFW come from? MIA, PHL, and sometimes JFK, as far as I know.
JFK sees now only 3 752 departures a day, all 3 are now for DFW and none for MIA. Interesting. The sole 763 departure a day out of JFK is for MIA. And at this point I don't think JFK will see more 763 departures a day, maybe 2 seasonally, but definitely not more than 2.
JFK may not be a hub anymore but JFK/LGA combined still is, in my opinion, though most traffic in LGA is O$D. JFK is more a focus city for O&D traffic, that's how AA sees JFK.
Thanks for the update.

Thank you (in your back handed way) for defending me

I post my posts to counteract fanboy BS that skews reality into a PR post for their a.net fantasies

When I post facts, I make sure they’re actually facts.

I know, it is an amazing thought.

I simply can not watch somebody post that American is the same size at Kennedy as it has always been...It has as much truth as a piece of propaganda from a corrupt regime

(although the shrinking of the pilot and FA bases is worrisome).


Why? It is nothing more than, reducing the old AWA base to fit only PHX flying. PHX Base was AWAs only crew Base and everyone was based there. They never reduced it after either merger until now. It is completely unrelated to PHX flying. As it is now most of those extra FA's fly to the DFW or the East coast and work East cost trips.

AA has reduced their summer schedule to coincide with the runway reconstruction. It's likely, but not 100% certain, that all of the reductions will come back in the fall.

CLT remains the most profitable hub. They print money there.

I know the 200 flights will slowly start disappearing from CLT over the next few months as PSA begins accelerating their 200 retirements and finish receiving Envoy’s 700s and brand new 900s. DCA will hold steady for 200s as they need them for certain remote gates that can’t handle 700s. The new terminal will change everything.

AA is growing CLT, 200 flights aren’t being cut. I mean flights not aircraft type.

Why? It is nothing more than, reducing the old AWA base to fit only PHX flying. PHX Base was AWAs only crew Base and everyone was based there. They never reduced it after either merger until now. It is completely unrelated to PHX flying. As it is now most of those extra FA's fly to the DFW or the East coast and work East cost trips.


This is my understanding as well ... essentially PHX has been overstaffed since at least when the LHP LAS hub went away. With LUS, they didn't have anywhere else to base them, and they ended up flying a lot of routes from other hubs, like transcons from CLT. Now with the new AA, they can take better advantage of the synergies with the additional hubs to rightsize around the system.

I know the 200 flights will slowly start disappearing from CLT over the next few months as PSA begins accelerating their 200 retirements and finish receiving Envoy’s 700s and brand new 900s. DCA will hold steady for 200s as they need them for certain remote gates that can’t handle 700s. The new terminal will change everything.

AA is growing CLT, 200 flights aren’t being cut. I mean flights not aircraft type.


FLIHGH is referring to aircraft types. "200" meaning CRJ-200, with 700s and 900s being the larger models.

AMAZING work FSDan.

I am curious about some of the unusual visitors at the hubs.

Specifically

PHX
The single 777 goes to LHR
3 CR2 flights?

DFW
4 CR2 flights at DFW?
The 2 320 flights are one to PHX and one to ATL all of places

CLT
The 1 757 flight is to Phoenix

ORD
The 2 daily 320's go to PHL

DCA
The one daily 757 is to PHX

The CR2s usually just fly PHX-SGU, but with SGU closed for the summer, there's one CR2 flight each to OAK, FAT, and ABQ. These CR2 flights are completely isolated in the AA network.

There's a DFW-GEG 320 flight as well. I don't see a 320 to PHX - there's a 32Q (looks very similar) which is actually one of the A321neos.

The CR2s fly from DFW to CYS (x2), MEI, and PIB. MEI serves as a bridge to ORD, where the CR2s also fly to YUL (x2), ICT (x3), MKE (x3), and CHO (x3).

Of note, one of the two arrives from CLT and departs to PHL. The other is just an out-and-back from PHL.

I believe that BOS still sees 1 757 departure a day, going to PHL. So one of the 11 757 departures out of PHL is for BOS. Correct me if I'm wrong about that.

I've got to ask for a source for that. And is that Return on Sales or Total Profit?



It is on Profit Margin and it's because it is the lowest cost by a mile.

DFW is the most on revenue. ORD, JFK, MIA all barely make money, but that is changing as they drop habitual money losers (and South America's economies improve)..
PHL, PHX, LAX are all solidly profitable.

How did MIA go from helping keep AA afloat at the time of the bankruptcy to barely profitable?

The only 752s going into BOS this summer are from DFW, I believe. The 11 752s from PHL on the date I checked were 7x to DFW, 1x to MIA, 1x to SXM, 1x to SNN, and 1x to EDI. Things have since changed slightly with the 752 fleet after the MAX reshuffle (for instance, 752s were needed to cover MIA-UIO, which was previously a 7M8 route).

Over the past few years new entrants at MIA and more competition from FLL. B6 has introduced Mint from FLL to LAX. Add that and issues with economies and political situations in South America.

Here's some more fun info! I put together maps in Great Circle Mapper to illustrate which destinations are served from each hub on the date I used for data collection. I made maps of the North America service from each hub (so as not to zoom out too much), and then one with a cumulative vision of the routes that go outside the continuous 48 states.

What’s flying PHX to Hawaii now? Still the 757s or A321s?

Nope, no more. Except maybe one occasionally coming from MIA, but that's it, should there be a last minute schedule change.Same with the 757.
All long haul flights out of ORD, to Europe and Asia, are now 787s.
