Re: Frontier to Puerto Rico

UA and B6 also operate very early morning arrivals that turn right around and head back to the mainland. I think the current difficulty in RONing crews there but wanting to continue to offer capacity is resulting in these overnight flights with a turn in the middle of the night. These schedules int...

Re: Why does AA operate Ex-US Airways Aircraft strictly at former US-Airways hubs?

DFW sees a few LUS 321S operations, and LUS 319 flights. Not just to LUS hubs but to outstations as well. Vice versa as well, LUS hubs see quite a few LAA ops. Once FOI takes place in OCT (if everything stays on track) you will see much more metal swapping.
