Re: Possible Miami - Tokyo announcement soon

I completely agree. MIA-TYO O&D seems like it's too small to be profitable on its own that it would have to rely on lots of connections. But the majority of those connections are available today via multiple US destinations. Not sure why anyone would want to connect in NRT to other Asian cities...

Re: AA Bringing Lie-Flat Narrowbodies To MIA-LAX?

How long does this flight normally block? Could AA reconfigure some 321s with no F, but lie flat J? Seems they need a domestic aircraft beyond the 757 with a lie flat but not a full F product. My personal expectation - pure guess - is that the long-term solution will be just that. I could see it pl...
