Routes / flights you wish AA flew Thread (2013 edition)

There was a thread almost 8 years ago that asked FT-ers which routes they wished AA flew. Surprisingly, over time, some of those routes actually happened [many did not].

With the AA and US merger likely to be approved, AA will probably cut routes, but hopefully add routes. This thread is intended for routes you wish AA flew on its own metal [including future medal that is currently US'] .

The reason for the route can be whatever reason.

Feel free to be creative, especially if there is a destination served only by US, but could be served by a current AA hub.

Perhaps the AA folks will take notice :P

I'll start....

ORD-ORF [I would settle for American Eagle for the route]
LAX-TUL [prefer mainline so that AA could shuttle in aircraft to be maintenced]
JFK-TUL [would settle for American Eagle]
MIA-SJD
LAX-CUN
JFK-MSY
PHX-MSY
MIA-CZM [AA operated this route briefly with ATR service before it stopped]
DFW-GCM [would settle for weekend only service]
DFW-BON and/or MIA-BON and/or JFK-BON
ORD-OGG
ORD-BZE
ORD-BZN or DFW-BZN [would settle for American Eagle]
DFW-BUF
ORD-PWM

What routes would others like to see the "new" AA fly?

I remember that thread! All I really wanted for Christmas was a BDL-LAX nonstop and it's coming this summer. I'll double down on LAX and hope that they start serving SEA themselves instead of relying on AS code shares.

AUS-SFO
AUS-MIA
AUS-SEA that departs AUS in the morning with the return from SEA departing in the afternoon
AUS-BOS
AUS-DCA (assuming they can get perimeter rule exemption)
AUS-YVR
AUS-any vacation city in Mexico (Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc)
AUS-LHR (Austin is trying to get a non-stop flight to Europe)
HKG-any AA hub
TPE-any AA hub
TLV-JFK

Of the routes out of AUS, I think MIA has the best chance of actually happening.

FAT-ORD would be a dream! But I would settle for them bringing in a shiny new 737 for FAT-DFW.

Also, LAX (or PHX) -CUN would be supurb. I am surprised there isn't a big enough tourist/Latin America market out of LAX for this to already be a route?

I feel like this list might be helpful. I not promise the information is correct but there are a lot of routes AA seems to own the rights to.

From an old A.net posting:

Below are some of the route authorities held by American and TWA LLC. How many would ever be used again is debateable, plus as Open Skies agreements spread others will become invalid.

I'm with Matinicus Rock... though I'd cry tears of joy for an LAX-DXB.
I'd also love them to make good on the rumors of LAX-MCI.
