Since June, the airline has been flying larger planes in and out of the Hub City to see how they would do. Now they've decided to extend the service for the foreseeable future - welcome news for travelers and the business community alike.
When my mom flew into Lubbock the 1st time, she got off (with a broken foot) and hobbled her way to me. "This seems nice" she said about Lubbock. "Clean airport, nice people". But that changed when they brought in the "puddle jumpers" as she called them. She hated the SAAB's and shortly thereafter started driving to Lubbock. Maybe she'll start flying again now that American has brought real planes to Lubbock.
