UNDATED (AP) -- American Airlines is expanding two of its flights from two Oklahoma airports to Dallas-Fort Worth.

The move comes a week after Delta Air Lines eliminated its hub at DFW.

American will have the same number of flights from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City to Dallas. But the airline is replacing one of its 70-seat American Eagle regional jets at each airport with a 129-seat mainline MD 80 aircraft.

American now offers six daily flights to Dallas on a mainline jet from Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City and five daily mainline flights from Tulsa International Airport. The American Eagle regional jets now make three daily flights from Oklahoma City and six from Tulsa.
