No more Love for AA mainline crews

An article from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, republished on the Airport Business website, says that beginning April 10, American Airlines will replace the remaining MD-80 aircraft flying from Dallas Love Field with smaller regional jets operated by regional affiliate American Eagle.
"At that point it's going to be an all-Eagle base," spokesman Roger Frizzell said. "But we're committed to serving our passengers who prefer to fly from Love Field and giving them that option."

He said the airline is "absolutely committed" to maintaining its presence at the Dallas airport.
American will continue to operate the same number of flights from Love Field, but with the smaller aircraft.
