Dang that's a big boost all of a sudden. AA clearly values it's Austin site as it's always been a big feeder for DFW and dominant there behind Southwest. Wish I can eventually actually take advantage of these flights...
LOL! It's pretty much true though. AA was running 757s on what, like sub 30 minute flights on DFW-AUS-DFW multiple times daily through most of the 2000s? However what is more surprising is how stubborn AA was to start up AUS-MIA until only relatively recently.
DC10s in the 90s!
Oh I remember that hole being unfilled for such a long time, as well as other routes out of AUS that weren't to hubs (SEA, and SJC which is returning). AA clearly values its loyalty and base in AUS. Although a new Admiral's Club as others have mentioned would be even nicer.
