Brian Znotins, American’s Senior Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning, said:

Customers will have more reasons to choose American than ever before for nonstop fun in the sun this year. We are excited to continue growing our network to the region with more flights this winter to the Caribbean and Latin America than any other U.S. carrier ever.”

American’s winter schedule will offer 11% more departures and 10% more seats compared to its prior record-setting schedule last winter. These new routes and frequencies will be available for purchase on May 20th.

Anthony’s Take: American continues to dominate the Caribbean and Latin America. These new routes and expanded frequencies only further cement this position.

I would say that AA has a dominant presence in the Caribbean and Latin America thanks to Miami and CHARLOTTE.
