That has to be a typo as there are currently 3 flights a day from DFW-SJU.

Interested to see that Upstate NY will be cut off from DFW as I am originally from ROC. Mind you, its a long way from ROC to DFW on a CRJ700, and if truth be told, Upstate NY is not exactly an AA priority, but that is what it is. Cannot be every place and every where. Luckily AA is pretty good in CLT.

Safe travels.

From the star-telegram article:
The airline will operate 738 flights from D/FW in November,
Wow, that is a huge cut. That's less than 25 flights a day.

I guess those who called the ACT and CLL cuts were right on the money. Makes me sad as it will mean driving to games instead of flying in to CLL now.

Surely it is 738 flights a day and not a month? I thought AA has 3,000 flights a day. Am I wrong?

If you add the daily flights for both AA and AE listed in the article you come up with 421 flights. So I guess that is 738 flights a day.

Well, we are referencing the StartleGram as a source here...

I think what s/he meant is that they are cutting SJU-island routes, meaning you have to go via MIA to get to the islands, not that you can't get to SJU via other cities.

Only two SJU-Island routes are gone; Aruba and Samana.

However, it does appear as if SJU-FDF/PTP will be discontinued as well, replaced with MIA-FDF/PTP, but this is not yet confirmed.

According to the article, DFW-SJO (always my preferred way to get to and from Costa Rica, so much more sane than via MIA, and my upgrades almost always clear) is facing cuts. It's not clear though. The chart says the route will be cut by "two flights weekly" leaving it with a frequency of "one flight daily." But one flight daily is all that exists now. I guess I'll find out late this fall.
