It looks like they are suffering from severe financial difficulties. Passengers from canceled flights are fighting for refunds and seem to be given the runaround. It also looks as if their employees are not being paid. This is not good. I think it will be a matter of time before government agencies...Jump to post
Some Midwest markets are low hanging fruit for AA out of PHX, ICT (a resumption), BNA, CVG and CLE (a resumption). COS while not in the Midwest is also a big gap in the network out of PHX, should come to fruition sooner rather than later. PHX-NRT if it ever comes to fruition would be on AA metal, JA...Jump to post
Big Move in Boston today, AA is consolidating all there operations in Terminal B. They will fly all mainline flights out of gates B4-B22. Also opening a new Admirals club as well. Does this mean no more Eagle in BOS? I wouldn't be at all surprised to see that happen soon. All that's left is BOS-MDT...Jump to post
I found the far left commentary silly. That being said I consider the “what if” threads a bit ridiculous and out of hand. I just ignore them but they seem to be at an all time high.Jump to post
Hopefully they upgrade or retire these 767s soon! I go to MVD all the time and fly LAN now instead of nonstop from MIA from MVD. Those planes are outdated and uncomfortable for the fares charged. Also, the soft product is awful compared to LAN in both classes. American def. needs to improve its ser...Jump to post
Already tried that. Flight was a money loser and a lot of times the 762 had to make a fuel stop. if they use the 332 I would guarantee this route would do just as well as ATL-HNL, US used the wrong equipment at the wrong time US had a very small widebody fleet and I don't remember if they had the A...Jump to post
Anyone see this from SY? Looks like new service (presumably seasonal and less than daily) to SKB from DFW. Will American respond with a nonstop or just ignore it and keep funneling pax through MIA? http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1412527#p20989115 No way would AA fly this fro...Jump to post
That dress for the more voluptious ladies is atrocious, looks frumpy and wrinkled. The blouse was bad enough but the dress takes the cake. Not understanding the outdoor winter type sweater for inflight, that looks very informal and clashes with other pieces.Jump to post
I believe AA moves a lot of cargo on the PHL-SJU segment, back when the 333 (LUS days) operated on the route the belly was always jam packed. The flight had it’s share relaiability issues at times which would trickle on to the European departure bank. I recall the flight always having drama and very...Jump to post
I would take rumors from front line staff around the airport with a huge grain of salt. They are as reliable as flight crew rumors. Next week the person who started this thread most probably will post rumors WN is planning on a major expansion in CLT. It seems every couple of weeks these “rumors” se...Jump to post

Level is starting BCN-JFK in Spring/Summer 2019. That could mean the end of AA's JFK-BCN service. MXP service could end up being moved to PHL, though MXP is really a business, not a leisure heavy route, and for the business traffic between the US and Milan that exists, JFK makes more sense, but AA ...Jump to post
Great predictions. I hope that there is more movement on the BA side of things because long haul connections on BA arriving on any airline other than BA is problematic. As far as Asian routes, I don't think it makes sense for JAL, China Southern, or any other Asian carrier to come to PHL when AA al...Jump to post
I sure do. And I was the first person to report the AA IAD-LHR rumor, it's -highly- credible. I’m assuming the thinking here they want to connect Washington D.C with London on their own metal, but have to use IAD because DCA can’t handle long haul flights? I wonder how this will impact BA’s existin...Jump to post
So regarding th BA/AA JV, it does matter who flies to the EXPs & Concierge key members due to the SWU restrictions, a switch to BA metal means that SWUs can no longer be used... also, mileage upgrades for all levels go out the window....

Are there a lot of Canadians in the Daytona Beach area?

Not the first international flight for DAB, LTU served DAB years ago and while I was in school there Air Canada Jazz operated service from YYZ with the CRJ. When was this for AC? I know they announced but never started YYZ-DAB in 2002 on the CRJ. I could have sworn I saw their airplanes departing D...Jump to post
Doubtful, AA’s footprint as a whole in Argentina is much larger than DL’s. I could see a second ATL-EZE in high season before a Córdoba flight.Jump to post
The 752 has been operating AA685 PHX-DCA-PHX for a long time now and continues into 2019 There have been periods without the 752. They can easily swap to an Airbus or a 737. Going into the summer I believe the 32Es start to operate PHX-DCA alongside the 757. The 32E’s will be a nice addition. My co...Jump to post
Maybe this will allow for CLT DUB and possibly DFW DUB to go year round on AA.Jump to post
They have sufficient winter loads to HNL. I wonder how they would to to OGG or KOA. Do they have anything other than the 77L that can do OGG-MSP? I haven’t looked closely at runway performance numbers for the 332 (though those are pretty heavily utilized). The 333 would have a hard time. OGG gets a...Jump to post
So, AA will be the only airline flying nonstop from GIG to MIA? Seems surprising as only 1 flight a day is operated by AA (during low season), 2 at the moment.Jump to post
I think they originally had ViaAir doing their ground handling and when ViaAir disappeared they had to move to Jetstream who also handles F9. From what I've seen, there are limited bilingual speakers at Jetstream in CLT. I'm sure they are working on adding more, but they were kinds thrown the groun...Jump to post

I may be reading your post incorrectly, but AA has flown PHL-AMS seasonally for quite awhile and continues to do so in 2019.
