In a recent interview in late March, Terri Pope – head of airline’s operations at CLT talked about the airline’s current focus on adding regional routes at CLT. “Everybody wants to hear Charlotte-Tokyo …. (American) has a beautiful backdrop of Dallas, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, Charlotte, L.A., the New Yorks that you can choose top-rate new flights out of,” she said during the interview. “So people shouldn’t feel slighted if Charlotte’s not selected because again, I love the regional operation. We’re very good at what we do. I think for now our niche is those little feeder destinations. They treat us well, and I think we return the favor.”
