Clinton National Airport announced today that American Airlines would begin nonstop flights between Little Rock and Reagan National Airport in Washington on April 3.

The American Eagle flight on a 76-seat Embraer will take about 2.5 hours.

Nonstops from Little Rock to D.C. have been an on-again, off-again thing over the years.

The new service will fly to D.C.  at 7:20 a.m., arriving at 10:40 a.m. The flight from Washington will leave at 5:55 p.m. and arrive at 7:35 p.m. 

PS: American gets a DC slit back thatvit list in 2014 with merger of American and US Air.  Also: I was interested to learn today that American has inched ahead of Delta in passenger load in Little Rock, 27.8 to 27.2 percent, with Southwest in third.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
