American Airlines launches Nashville to Phoenix, music to our ears
American Airlines began Nashville – Phoenix on 5 November, the same day the carrier launched Appleton – Charlotte.
Operating four-weekly using 128-seat A319s, the 2,331-kilometre service later changes to B737-800s. It competes directly with Southwest’s 28-weekly services, based on the week beginning 17 November.
In 2019, Nashville to Phoenix had 284,000 point-to-point passengers, booking data obtained from OAG Traffic Analyser reveals. Around 77,000 flew indirectly, with American having the second-largest share at around one-third.
American now serves all of its core hubs from Music City: Charlotte, Dallas Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.
In this November week, American has 121 one-way flights from Nashville, making it the airport’s third-largest airline after Southwest and Delta.
