Re: American's Problem: Management is Out of Touch With Customers

There's a certain number of legacy AA moaners who claim the pre-merger American was some kind of paradise and the antichrist Doug Parker and the flea-bitten US Airways turned it into hell.

Re: British Airways tilts against reclining seats

As a counterargument: as a taller-than-average person, the contouring on the BA seats as they are now causes real lumbar problems (the bumps are just not where they need to be for me), and 1-2 inches of recline really helps the comfort level. The non-reclining exit row seats leave me in pain on a on...

Completely different cases. You can't drive in reasonable time from JFK to CLT. It's a 2 hour drive to Philly from Penn Station. The only O&D I can imagine is long island to Philadelphia. Even then it only makes sense to fly on days when there are huge traffic jam. Even LGA to PHL is all connec...

AA has no reason to operate JFK-MAN for connecting traffic; they have PHL-MAN for that. If AA decides that the local Manchester-New York market doesn't justify a flight on its own, not sure why they should fly it (pleasing JFK and MAN fanboys is not a reason).
