B6 is a prime takeover target with nowhere to expand paying substandard wages compared to competitors. This is a wise move for the rank and file. Really nowhere to expand? FLL and BOS are expanding well. As for the FAs it's really 50/50 personally I think they can hold off a union but if they used ...Jump to post
not sure about that. AS with its current offering can't really challenge UA for premium flyers in bay area. It challenges WN as the Californian local carrier of choice. And with AS program downgrading since AA/DL/AM are no longer partners airlines and KE/AF/KL likely leaving also, I just don't see ...Jump to post
NW would have kept NRT intact as a standalone. They had nothing else. You have to understand, mergers made hubs redundant. We see it in the US all the time. No doubt STL was "marginal" for TW compared to UA at ORD, but it was all they had and it wasn't going anywhere. No one on here can se...Jump to post
Delta is pretty small at MCO compared to the good old days :) That whole Airside was theirs sans a few international operators. Plus the Comair operation. MCO became a low cost haven and the rest is history. DL Express, Metro Jet, Song, Co Lite...there were various build ups in Orlando and pull down...Jump to post
Who would buy tickets post August on AB?
This isnt US chap 11!
You have to take ownership of your decisions. If you bought a ticket on air Berlin after this filing, you know what you're in for.
As for those purchased before August, it stinks...but the company is gone.
Stick a fork in these guys.
Just a few weeks ago you guys were arguing about which airline will take what routes and fears of a monopoly.
There wont even be routes left to part out when all is said and done

All off :) WN is a short/medium haul airline historically. Some longer flights now, but short/medium is still where it is at for them. JFK is a long haul airport. Historically, short haul has not worked there. Currently, beyond someone with a hub like DL or a must have for someone like B6, I am not ...Jump to post
AA really ceding MCI. first LGA and now LAX. 2 very important destinationsJump to post
Hub (NYC) to Hub (Euro hubs) routes. Why not? Delta learned long ago they needed a presence at all airports in New York City. Something CO and UA hadnt learned until very recently. ..and judging by there new ads begging people to use EWR by saying it's New Yorkewr...it is advantage Delta. The conist...Jump to post
SJU is service to hubs. With regards to JFK service being axed, I will turn analogy upside down...I think AA JFK is on its way to a dehub/line station with only service to outside LGA perimeter/international partner hubs. SJU JFK going is more about JFK than SJU. SJU already is what it is...and AA w...Jump to post
A huge chunk of the already flying HAV flights have bad loads. Including JFK. Im sure BOS will buck this trend. Cue eye roll. Plain and simple, this is a slot grab for future investment. Airlines are hoping and waiting for this to pay off. Notice how most of these applications go to the Miami area. ...Jump to post
Why, everytime a cut is announced by a legacy to Britain, is it okay to reference the fallout from Brexit without such blowback?
The poster is noting astounding growth at LGW despite Brexit. Nothing more
This is big news about nothing.
Always seasonally planned. Been that way for a while.
Delta has flow this route for close to 30 years...I think it will stick around for a while
Man, what a freakin bloodbath. I havent seen anything this bad at JFK since TWA announced in 99/00 that they were ending FCO, BCN, MAD and a bunch of others in one press release. Im convinced we will look back at this as the beginning of the end of the AA hub at JFK. As much as Im a JFK fanboy, for ...Jump to post
DEN redeyes seem to work to JFK.
Only way to get to city for start of business from DEN is a redeye or night prior.
LGA doesnt open until 600...so the UA redeye leaves DEN at the ungodly hour of 1245a
And Delta adds another overseas destination from JFK on same day.
Sums up the past 17 years well!
AA was never a powerhouse at JFK in terms of a connecting hub. Delta always offered more feed, more flights to Europe, and more connecting opportunities. AA flew large (garbage) planes to Ethnic Islands with high frequency as the background of their Island network from JFK. The death of JFK began in...Jump to post
Really? Might as well tell the whole aviation industry that then! And passengers too! No one ever opts to connect when there is a non stop available! I know in NYC, with our plethora of nonstops to every corner of earth, no one I know has never connected anywhere. And I never connected either. Sound...Jump to post
Slots? How many flights are they down to at JFK now? 90? Wasnt it not long ago 120 or so? What about SJU slots going away? The third BOS slot? These new cuts equaling 3 slots? Where are the adds? None. Net negative. Theyre surrendering the slots. Much as they have for 15 years. Simply not interested...Jump to post
Yes, for a while AA did go down to 3x. They brought back morning flight last year.Jump to post
I think any JFK route not touching the other hubs or LHR is in jeopardy of being cut. As for the slots, I think Doug Parker could look to trade slots - I'm sure Delta, JetBlue, United, and maybe Southwest would be interested in buying AA's unused slots. The question would be where / which slots tha...Jump to post
If this is true, to be confirmed publicly, AA is headed for the dust bin at JFK. Sad day. But as we saw with TW and UA, once you start cutting at JFK, you become more irrelevant and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. DEN will stay one season. AA has a long history of non hub, within perimeter, m...Jump to post
MAN and CDG havent changed...unless you have insider info for us

Runway is long, bumpy, wavy and dippy. Can I add anymore adjectives?
It's fun to land there. There's always a fire in arms distance of the runway (normal for many islands) and a man in a booth at the end of the runway (also seen in DR)
That's on a normal day.
35 years old. Not old. Not a kid. Just judging on my lifetime...if you think today's era is the "glory days" era, you are absolutely, 100% delusional.
