How about MIA to SJC and SLC? Good counterattack against Delta’s new routes out of MIA.

Additionally, they just operated MIA-SJC for the Super Bowl.

“12 more year-round, daily domestic frequencies, including increased flying from Nashville (BNA), Boston (BOS), Houston (IAH), Orlando (MCO), Raleigh-Durham (RDU) and Tampa (TPA) to MIA.

Additional flight from MIA to GIG during the peak winter months on a Boeing 787-8.”

No new routes in that announcement, but I'm guessing that's what got turned into the rumors...

Strange, N409AA never seems to be utilized for flights to Hawaii. I've only seen it go to Hawaii once since it's been in the active fleet.

If it is indeed something out of MIA, I would guess something in Brazil. CUZ has been previously rumored as well.

I bet we're looking at Spanish-speaking routes. The GOL codeshare will do for Brazil for now. Bolivia, CUZ, ASU. Maybe a new Colombian destination to support their operation against an increasingly bullish Spirit.

Since AA is calling SEA an International gateway it will be interesting to see what other routes get developed out of SEA. And it will soon be a OW hub.

I wonder if IB might be interested in seasonal flying into SEA?

The only likely impact this may have in PHX is more SEA flights. Otherwise it doesn't change anything.

If they call SEA an international gateway... what are BOS to them with adding EYW, LHR, NAS, AUS, RDU, ILM, and IND in the past year? ... with presumably more to come..

It seems AA is finally really leaving the cornerstone strategy.

BOS is a gateway, per the communication sent out a few weeks back regarding hub realignment. As such the leader at the station was made a Managing Director, reporting to the VP which also covers LGA/JFK (VP for PHL).

It mostly consisted of announcing adifferent reporting structure for the hubs and gateways. For example LAX/PHX/DCA reporting to the same VP. BOS now upgraded to a Gateway and reporting to the VP out of PHL DFW getting additional supporting leadership, etc

Interesting that DCA would be grouped with those two... Must be because those are the three smallest hubs (all between ~200 and ~260 departures)?

It seems too late to announce anything else transatlantic from Boston for 2020, but the gateway label suggests more ought to come. S21 perhaps? Which is about when B6 is going to take wing to the UK from BOS.

A gateway means a specific point from which many flights depart to a specific part of the world. For example MIA is the gateway to South America, LAX is the gateway to Asia, and JFK was, at some point the gateway to Europe. Now it is PHL that is the gateway to Europe as far as AA is concerned. Now with AS joining OW, if AA and AS ever merge one will be able to say that SEA will be the gateway to the Northwestern states, Western Canada and Alaska.

AA cut PHX-ANC for summer 2020 which is interesting, though AS still operates it seasonally.

Not necessarily used in that sense at AA. HUB/Gateway many times will be used to determine the resources and leadership positions for that location. MIA is a large hub, hence it has a VP, LAX is called a gateway hence they have an MD. Title is also mostly driven by the size of the operation at that particular station.

I think SIN is a market that is too big for AA to ignore IMHO, though I don't necessarily believe it will work best ex-SEA, given that SQ is already on the route and I can't imagine SEA-SIN O/D traffic being very large. LAX-SIN would make the most sense for AA at present although they don't have the right equipment right now for the route. Same with KUL. I would absolutely love to see a US carrier back in KUL, although in addition to potentially having low O/D, KUL is less yielding than SIN.

I could see AA quite possibly attempt to push out SQ from SIN, and I could see them being successful.

This goes way back, but what was the performance like of AA's SEA-NRT flight, and what was the purpose of continuing to fly the route after AA got additional NRT rights? I know it had a tag to a 763 SEA-MIA service and was running with a 772 before being cut in 10/2001.

I agree that AA adding more flights at NRT is a possibility as DFW-NRT will be the only remaining AA-operated nonstop route out of NRT once AA ends NRT-LAX nonstop service in March 2020. However, AA's partner JL will still serve BOS, HNL, LAX, SAN, and SEA nonstop from NRT after AA ends NRT-LAX nonstop service next month.

Ishrion wrote:

I agree that AA adding SEA-KUL nonstop service is a possibility with KUL being a hub for oneworld member MH. AA would be able to connect passengers onto MH flights at KUL if it adds SEA-KUL nonstop service.

I also agree that AA adding SEA-SIN nonstop service might be a possibility as SIN is closer to SEA than to LAX, ORD, DFW, or JFK. AA adding nonstop service to SIN from LAX, ORD, DFW, or JFK might also be a possibility if AA had widebody aircraft that could reach LAX, ORD, DFW, or JFK nonstop from SIN.

MH is a mess and its better to serve KUL from HKG, HND/NRT as well. Singapore and Taiwan are 2 Asian countries in the VISA Waiver Program with high income. EVA/BR dominates SEA/SFO/LAX/IAH/YVR/YYZ/ORD/JFK-TPE. AA could fly DFW-TPE. Also Singapore is even richer than Taiwan and is the finance hub of Asia (the current protests/corona virus disruptions in Hong Kong are wrecking havoc on business and if this continues businesses will migrate to Singapore or Tokyo).

While anything os possible (who would have imagined SEA-BLR on AA) I have a hard time seeing KUL service. MH being such a basket case, KUL not having much traffic to the US, etc. That being said Vasu has repeatedly mentioned he wants deeper ties with alliance partners.

AA adding nonstop service to KIX from ORD, DFW, LAX, or SEA might be a possibility as there are many business ties between the Keihanshin (Kyoto/Osaka/Kobe) region of Japan and the U.S. to support AA service to KIX.

AA is also the only airline of the 4 U.S. airlines that operate transpacific flights between Asia and the U.S. (AA, DL, UA, and HA) that doesn't currently serve KIX, even though AA does offer connections onto JL's TYO-OSA and LAX-KIX flights from the U.S.

As you partially mentioned, it had a 767 SEA-MIA tag-on that was oriented towards South American connections, and I suppose they just figured they could flow those connections over DFW more efficiently with only one stop. The SEA-MIA route ended with the NRT flight, and didn't return until the summer of 2012 on a 757. AA's SEA-NRT flight lasted from 10/1/91 to 1/8/02, so it must have been killed by the dot-com bubble bursting combined with 9/11, though it appears to not have had stellar performance for a few years leading up to its demise.

Here's some load factor stats from a few time periods and old threads if you're interested.
viewtopic.php?t=117871
viewtopic.php?t=535235

Post-9/11, pre-route cancellation:
12/2001: 64%
11/2001: 36%
10/2001: 38%
Post-dot com bubble, pre-9/11:
7/2001: 71%
3/2001: 70%
12/2000: 57%
Pre-dot com bubble:
11/1999: 52%
7/1999: 70%
1/1999: 53%

Personally, I don't think that they will restart the route given heavy competition and their JV partner JAL already flying it, however, nobody saw SEA-BLR coming either, so who knows. I think that if anything though, it'd be more realistic for them to tell/encoiurage JAL to upgauge their flight, if they can do so under the terms of their JV.

NRT is good as long as they have a partner there.

Seems to me SEA-SIN is an obvious add. Time for AS to break off its partnership with SQ.

They'd have to be crazy to try SEA-KUL. But who knows, maybe they are.

In a tweet by JONNYC, he said that "Keeping LAX-NRT [was] one possibility." (https://mobile.twitter.com/xJonNYC/stat ... 2455379974) Isn't it kind of late for that given that the change to HND is next month?

On top of SIN, I'd say AA should at least consider ICN and TPE out of SEA. They get more feed to SEA than LAX and it's in the right direction for people on the west coast. Also, if PEK/PVG doesn't come back to LAX, they could try one or both out of SEA.

The morning DFW-NRT flight has been upgauged from the 772 to the 77W until the end of February. It's possible that it may be extended.

The rest of the fleet will likely undergo maintenance to get ready for summer flights.

Additionally, expect a few random upgauges on hub-to-hub flights (DFW-ORD went from 738 to 789 one day, PHL-AMS went 789 two days ago).

I agree. But my wishful thinking is for LAX-ICN on AA - I could be wrong, but isn’t it like technically the largest Asia-US route based on O&D? I know KE/OZ are mammoths on this route, but with a better west coast presence, I was hoping for this to become true: https://blueswandaily.com/seoul-los-ang ... new-route/

AA could also launch from SEA those cities that are not served from LA. Either way, it shouldn’t matter because the non-JV LA routes are also not exactly printing money...

AA could also launch from SEA those cities that are not served from LA. Either way, it shouldn’t matter because the non-JV LA routes are also not exactly printing money...


Didn't KE recently increase LAX-ICN to 2x daily?

AA launching SEA-ICN would be one hell of an attack on Delta.

Both KE and OZ were flying twice daily A380s on the route a while ago. But since then OZ has downgauged one of the flights to A350 and KE is flying an additional summer seasonal B777. So net capacity is probably lower than it used to be when Thai/SQ were on the route (or when KE had the additional ICN-LAX-GRU frequency).

SEA-ICN would indeed have more feed and one-stop destinations.

On top of SIN, I'd say AA should at least consider ICN and TPE out of SEA. They get more feed to SEA than LAX and it's in the right direction for people on the west coast. Also, if PEK/PVG doesn't come back to LAX, they could try one or both out of SEA.


I think SIN definitely makes sense, particularly if they can get AS to drop their relationship with SQ. That's a market DL is unlikely to enter given their fleet constraints. TPE could also make sense, if AA can launch it before DL does. I do think we'll see DL announce an additional TPAC destination or two in coordination with when the new IAF opens, and TPE has to be one of the top contenders. There may be room for two carriers on the route, but three might be pushing it. Unless AA could push OZ off SEA-ICN, I think that would be tough sledding. DL+KE offer two daily flights and likely have any Korea point of sale traffic locked up, as well as a good chunk of the SEA side and ample connections.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

American Airlines adds Boeing 767 Florida – Los Angeles service in S20

Miami – Los Angeles 29MAR20 – 03JUN20 1 daily
Orlando – Los Angeles 08APR20 – 06MAY20 1 daily (one-way from Orlando)

..are these a trickle down of widebody allocations after the Asia suspensions



I saw (and posted a topic a month or two ago) about AA bringing the 763 on MIA-LAX-MIA, though I didn't know about MCO. So I would say at least the MIA 763 flight is not related at all to the Asia suspensions. They're taking the 763 off MIA-SFO-MIA and moving it to MIA-LAX-MIA, presumably because since last month, there hasn't been any widebody / flat bed plane flying the "premium traffic" MIA-LAX-MIA route.

AA and MH cannot codeshare so I don't see how SEA-KUL is possible. Frankly, even if AA and MH could codeshare I don't see how SEA-KUL could turn a profit.

Although in May (which is currently the farthest out "finalized" schedule), the market is back to having a single MIA-LAX-MIA 763 rotation as the only widebody. Hopefully they'll improve the situation for the peak summer Jun/July/Aug schedules, but I wouldn't bet my life savings on it.
