AA Applies For LAX-GDL, MIA-MTY

Fri Jan 23, 2015 6:30 pm

American Airlines applied today with DOT to begin service between Los Angeles and Guadalajara and between Miami and Monterrey.

Proposed schedules effective June 4, 2015:

AA 903 LAX 0030-0540 GDL Daily A319
AA 985 GDL 1955-2120 LAX Daily A319

AA 231 MIA 1655-1915 MTY Daily A319
AA 319 MTY 0715-1110 MIA Daily A319

Both of these are old AA routes, LAX-GDL last operated in the early 2000s and MIA-MTY in the late 1990s. The LAX-GDL route simply makes use of an A319 that would otherwise RON in Guadalajara between Dallas turns. IMO, this is an example of how low fuel is making these turns much more viable again.

Applications available on www.airlineinfo.com (subscription required).

Great utilization of the 319! About time AA jumps back on LAX-GDL.

Hopefully, this will open up more LAX-Latin America.

Makes a lot of sense. With the GDL flight use Bradley or AA's FIS, assuming that is still open?

As long as fuel stays cheap, I expect we will might see AA take planes RONing in Central America between MIA/DFW flights and send them to LA on a similar schedule to the GDL turn. I wouldn't be shocked to see a combination of LAX-SJO/MGA/SAL/GUA.

I think what he means is the DFW aircraft would otherwise RON in GDL. This uses the aircraft to LAX. And the inbound LAX redeye would in turn depart in the morning to DFW, on what was the DFW RON. Essentially eliminating the RON in GDL and keeps the plane flying and making money.

Maybe, but where does the A319 that operates the Tecolote to GDL come from?

It probably is the same plane that came in from GDL. In context it is not a long turn given that it probably will have to be towed from TBIT. And any quicker turn would bring the plane into GDL way too early, where it would just have to sit and wait to get to Dallas.

Of course, though they could use a different aircraft to operate the flight to GDL and turn this plane somewhere else in the network.

So, has the T4 FIS closed completely?

Also, once they move into the 4 preferential gates, they really would only need an hour turn.

Two problems with that are that there is no A319 base at LAX, and that the A319 would have to do a redeye trans-con turn, and AA isn't using the A319s on trans-cons.

Okay, but that would get the plane into GDL way too early. So either it leaves GDL later, or it makes a redeye on a newer route that is a longer distance, like SAL.

I suppose if any airline has a chance for MTY-MIA to work that would be AA. However, won´t it cannibalize its MTY-DFW feed?

DFW-MTY has a pretty large O&D base. Its not hugely reliant on connecting traffic vs. say DFW-LIM. Even then, MIA-MTY will focus more on Florida O&D.

These markets seem like "natural" fits for AA given AA's strong and growing presence at LAX, and AA's historically strong position in each one of these markets with multiple daily nonstops to MIA and, in several cases, also DFW.

Not today, although starting on 5 March, AA will be operating them to ATL 3x daily.

Seems like every time I arrive into T4 these days, I always see either the PVG or NRT 777 sitting over at TBIT.

LAXGDL is so cheap and so local it really does nothing for the network but I guess AA can find out first hand now, even if it's utilization. 319 seems awfully big for MIAMTY...

I think AA already knows that. It flew LAXGDL for a very long time in the past.

While I agree an ERJ-175 is better for the local market at 45 PDEW, it is likely high fares and probably decent connection flows to Europe/Caribbean given the wealth/stability of Monterrey. And it's easily going to stimulate as much as 100% local market fairly quickly.

Historically there has been a lot of wealth in Monterrey, but I wouldnt call it stable. Its one of the cartels favorite playgrounds in recent years. Close to the US border and a large amount of money.

Australia and HKG on QANTAS and Cathay, respectively, although I doubt there will be many connections to those places from GDL. Nonetheless, it doesn't really matter - this O&D market is so large that the plane can likely be filled - at what fare, TBD - on that basis alone.

At 128 seats, this is a pretty easy fill. Further, AA only runs 8 F seats and 3 rows of MCE, plus the exit row. Pretty solid density there. As long as they can keep yields up, which shouldn't be TOO hard, the O&D will flow.

One thing you should know about the local Mexican population is that a huge chunk is from Guadalajara and Jalisco generally.

The wealth precisely made it now as of three years ago probably one of the safest and stable cities in Mexico. Over 14% of the State´s budget, and MTY is the wealthiest Metropolitan area in Mexico as well as the 2nd. contributor to Mexico´s GDP, goes directly to the new Police Force that has pretty much done away with organized crime. Believe me, it´s nothing like it was a the height of the drug war.

I doubt route will make $$ for AA when going against lower cost Mexican competitors something likely why AA left the route before to begin with, but it replants the AA flag this large O&D market at relative low cost thanks to such utilization flying especially now as AA seems intent on building LAX. If it can thread water that is probably good enough.

Are there still route authorities left on LAX-GDL? With DL, AS, and UA I thought they were maxed out? Does this route allow 4 US carriers?

And is there still a connector planned from T1 to T2 as part of the renovation at LAX for Southwest? I seem to see lots of rumors but no confirmations. Would they even waste valuable gate space for international flights there or just focus on the domestic flights since they're maxed out on capacity now and could easily fill the renovation with more domestic cities?

I would think that if Delta can do ATL-TGU with its pocket rocket 73Ws AA should be able to do so with its 319s which, IIRC, are the highest weight/MTOW and 26K or 27K thrust engines. DFW-TGU isn't even 100 miles longer than ATL-TGU.

There has been talk about such a connector. It remains on LAWA's wish list, along with the idea to tear down one of the south piers. But there is no PD booklet, a precursor to the RFP process. There's been no presentation before the board about its status or funding. In that sense, it is just talk at this time.

(Gate 2 in T1 was "closed" for other reasons.)

There's also another city in Colombia that will be announced shortly along with some more DFW-Central America service. As far as I know it will be all A319 service

Awesome - especially with A319s, I think BAQ, CTG and PEI should all be able to work from MIA, and SAP and MGA could both work from DFW.

Yeah. It's one of those cities in Colombia you mentioned.

Cool - frankly, I think all three of them should be able to work, at some point, for AA from MIA. All are relatively large population centers with meaningful O&D demand to the U.S. and, like with just about everywhere else in South America, MIA in particular. In addition, at least BAQ and CTG both already have nonstops from MIA on Avianca.

No big surprise, but the U.S. DOT has granted approval to AA to operate both routes as of January 28, 2015.

Look forward to seeing how these markets do - given competition in both - and any additional new AA Latin America routes rumored from LAX, DFW and/or MIA.

Perfect.

Interestingly, KX flies twice weekly from DFW to GCM from the end of May through October each year. I wonder if they will stick around after this summer
