Re: Boston Aviation - Part 13

I think it's time for AA to pull the plug on the CDG flight. Some of these numbers we're seeing are lower than we might expect but when you consider that's an average of the whole year, they're not that bad. But when AA is barely filling more than half of a 757 from May to September/early October, ...
