Re: AAL 1Q17 $234M Net Profit, A350's deferred

I'm not even convinced AA would have ordered the A350 on their own. No I don't think so either. Tom Horton, the former CEO before the merger, never showed an interest in it. He would probably be looking at the 777-9X by now if he was still the CEO, and maybe place a top off order for a couple more ...

To increase to 174 from 160 required three additional rows of Main Cabin and a reduction of one row of First.

May be a prudent move, assuming they keep MCE.
