I was driving past terminal A yesterday dropping a friend off and saw an Amer Eagle SAAB (SF3) sitting there. When did they start flying props into here again and where does it go? Any info??

American Eagle has not resumed flying SF340 on a regular basis into SJC. However, on occasion when a ERJ craps out.....they will subsitute a SAAB instead of cancelling the flight.

Yep, another EMJ broke down. I have done that trip a couple of times due to that tempermental jet. When a SF3 is substituted it's a LAX turn. They don't downgrade the other jet destinations (SNA & SAN) out of San Jose.

When did they stop flying turboprops out of SJC? I used to work there many moons ago and shared a hangar with American Eagle Mx, right next door to AA GSE Mx. Is the US Customs building still way out in the middle of nowhere on the south end of the field? Had a blast working there!!
