Meanwhile at Love Field, American Eagle Flies Away to Make Room for Construction
And, in other airline news ... In April of last year, American Eagle dropped its Kansas City and Austin flights out of Dallas Love Field and opted instead to fly to Chicago's O'Hare. Only, for now, that too is a no-go: AMR announced today that beginning June 11, American Eagle will suspend operations out of Love Field.
For how long, well, that depends on how long it takes Love Field to wrap up a $519-and-then-some-million renovation due to begin whenever and end long after that -- because last we heard, the city didn't know who was paying for it, and nobody had even decided on a design for the terminal. But to reassure the city that it's not out for good, AMR has re-upped its lease at the airport through 2028 -- which, who knows, may be right when construction's finishing. Mayor Tom says in today's media release that "while we're disappointed that Eagle is leaving Love Field for now, we understand the reasoning behind the decision."
