    On November 16th, American Eagle will end its flights between Boston and Toronto, Boston and New York-LaGuardia, Boston and New York-JFK, New York-JFK and St. Louis, as well Santo Domingo to Port au Prince service.

    This move leaves Boston and St. Louis without American Eagle service as of 11/17.

    JFK-BOS will be replaced with 3x daily 738s with the schedule as follows:

    AA 1836 JFK 07:35-08:45 BOS
    AA 1850 JFK 13:45-14:50 BOS
    AA 1806 JFK 16:55-18:10 BOS

    AA 1889 BOS 09:50-11:05 JFK
    AA 1851 BOS 15:50-17:20 JFK
    AA 1807 BOS 19:10-20:30 JFK

    A 737-800 is a lot to carry primarily international connecting traffic (SFO and LAS connections would work as well). Of course they can stimulate demand like jetblue did with EWR-BOS with $39/49 fares, but that sounds more like a short-term strategy rather than a long-term one.

    Not surprised YYZ-BOS is ending. I took the flight twice this year on one flight I was the only passenger and the other flight had 3 passengers.

    Retreat of AA from BOS is definitely not good for all pax.
    UA's BOS-SFO fare has increased quite a lot due to decrease of competition.

    So true. I've flown into both PVD and MHT and saved $200.00 last month to get to Boston. lol

    Did not have that luxury on AA. Just saying.

    Just more opportunity for Jet Blue at BOS.

    Indeed, but does less competition mean a potential increase in prices? That'd be bad for all of us. :)

    Remember, at the same time BOS-JFK goes mainline, BOS-LGA disappears. Overall the number of AA seats between BOS-NYC will decrease.

    Still a LOT of other carriers and flight options at BOS...even with AA downsizing.
