Re: AA 777-200ER replacement, A350 , 787-9 order potential

I'm sure AA could use a few A359ULR jets to open up new city pairs like MIA- JNB DFW / ORD - India , MIA-Tokyo DFW-TLV to name a few :) You do know that AA has already tried ORD - India with the 777-200ER, no real need for the A359ULR for this route. Okay, how about DFW - DEL ......... that would g...

Re: MEX Closed due to Earthquake

I stand corrected, LH498 and KL685 are still enroute to MEX , still over the southern US.

If they don't divert to a US airport, what divert fields could handle 747's and their

passengers in Mexico proper.? Cancun perhaps?
