Re: OAG Changes 6/17/2018:AA Drops ORD-BIS/BOI/COS/RAP/RNO for Winter or More;SXM Cuts;DY Shuffle;EY Pares JFK-AUH

AA couldn't even make ORD-RNO work in prime ski season. Really a shame but I bet it's yields. Better to route them thru DFW or PHX even if it's an extra stop for some. Leisure traffic pretty price sensitive and a different crowd then flies to places like ASE or EGE or JAC , the RNO crowd is much mor...

Re: "Air Transat prepping for A321LRs by rapidly expanding in Europe"

YOW-YUL is probably mostly connecting traffic. It's a very easy drive and city center to city center might be faster by train or driving these days. AC has connections , and that's probably a vast majority of the seats.

AA is extremely profitable on JFK-LAX and SFO don't see them encouraging competition. UA can start IAD probably without a big deal as JFK is not slot controlled all day.
