ATA plays an AA and announces MIA-IND


Aug 22, 2002
Well look at this. We''re all used to AA always defending thier territory and announcing routes after compieition do (while this practice is often frowned upon, I am in full support of it, even though sometimes, like JFK-ONT, it shows lack of sense and investigation into a market), but now ATA has announced daily MIA-IND service a week after AA did. Thier service will operate with a daily 738, complimenting thier existing FLL-IND service, which is a daily 757-300.

Now, I hope and prey that AA gets on the defensive and starts MIA-MDW. Starting at the end of September, I will be commuting between Miami and Chicago roughly every six weeks, and my home in Chicago is incredibly convienent to Midway and a real xxxx to get to from O''Hare. All my travel will be on ATA''s MIA-MDW route, but I''d really perfer to fly AA.
