Re: Will AA in PHX add NS to Asia expansion?

PHX also suffers from the fact that OW is almost singularly a one and a half hub show in Europe. There's LHR.....and MAD-ish, which is a giant fall off. Star has FRA, MUC, and ZRH, and Skyteam has AMS and CDG.

Another plan would be to make the same moves but give DL the even side and let AA have the odd side of B. The reason for this is that the Admirals Club overlooks the odd side of B and even side of A so I don't think AA would be too happy with their premium customers using the lounge to only see AA'...
