New NS out of AMA?

Anyone know of a new NS from AMA?

Not sure what else they would be announcing? We need an easterly flight out of this town. Fingers crossed!

All it says is ďmajor value added enhancementĒ - personally I doubt thatís a new route but who knows. At the same time, not really sure what value added enhancement means either.

If they were adding something, Iíd imagine itís got to be PHX or DEN (and apparently AAs PHX flight is struggling on an RJ, so I doubt itíll be that)

I'm thinking the same. Flyby lane for A-list? Self tagging bags? I'm not sure what AMA has already but probably something along those lines. Route wise I don't see anything other than DEN or maybe HOU.

There is a precheck line that is rarely open. I think flyby is unlikely. As far as self tagging that would be a joke as the lines are rarely long.

The coty page says to join for a new service announcement. Again, service could be route or self tagging. Iíll report back after the announcement tomorrow...

As an aside, used to have a DEN but it went away after wright. United services DEN and IAH. HOU would be nice but Lubbock doesnít even have that. AUS is all we donít have over LBB and via air recently started an AUS...

The announcement was a direct, no plane change flight to Austin from Amarillo:

Yeah, guess they just wanted the media hype. This isnít news. They have done this before incidentally, but I guess they will do this as a for certain now.

Wow. And guess how many people will think that is the same as a non-stop?

Sure, no change of planes, but you still have an extra takeoff and landing. Lucky people.
