Re: Why Is the A321 so popular with US carriers?

Industry consolidation has also played a huge role. Going from 6 major network carriers to 3 means that traffic can be condensed more. And as the economy expands, more people want to travel. So you have fewer airlines and more people travelling, you're going to need larger planes.

Maybe part of the reason Alitalia is failing is routes like LAX-FCO. No way AA starts it.

I think the only other destinations that would even be possible from LAX would be CDG or a partner hub (DUS/MAD/BCN) And even those probably only if AA takes over the route from the partner.
