American Airlines

American will offer 12% more flights from Phoenix. This is good news for fliers from the former US Airways hub that has not seen the growth of some of the carrier’s other hubs like Charlotte Douglass International Airport (CLT) or Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

Chad Makovsky, Director of Aviation Services for the City of Phoenix Aviation Department, said:

American’s announcement of their largest winter schedule in nearly a decade is wonderful news, and it really speaks to their continued confidence in the Phoenix market. American is an essential business partner, and we couldn’t be more pleased with their continued growth and investment in Phoenix.”

Anthony’s Take: Expansion and new routes are a good thing when capacity can be handled. American struggled this past week with many flights being reported as severely delayed or cancelled due to availability of crew.
