Re: DFW-HKG and adding more flights?

DFW/LAX-HKG is one of the best performing routes among AA's long haul routes in Asia Pacific. The problem is AA has to offload travellers due to wind and weight. It is a nightmare for Non-Rev due to popularity of the routes. A second daily DFW-HKG would be nice but ultimately AA need plan for a smal...

So they had more J seats, yet failed. The problem was the competition on ORD-China. There's UA on PEK/PVG, China Eastern on PVG, and Hai...
