American Airlines is still figuring out its path after the dissolution of its Northeast Alliance with JetBlue. It’s added some flights and has now cut some others.


Service between Tampa International Airport (TPA) and Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) will cease on January 7th. The route was operated 2x daily since November 2021 with an Airbus A319 and an Embraer 175. Avelo Airlines is also dropping this route on October 29th. It’s still served by Breeze Airways, Delta Air Lines, and Southwest Airlines. Frontier Airlines and JetBlue also used to fly this route, but dropped it some time ago.


Flights between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) will also end in February 2024. The route launched in 2021 amidst a big expansion in Austin. The route was supposed to restart, but has hit the chopping block. Southwest currently flies between the two cities.

Anthony’s Take: The flights between Tampa and Raleigh were too saturated from several other airlines. American will likely need the planes used for the flights between Austin and St. Louis for some of the new routes it has planned in the northeast.
