LATAM doesn't even have LIS or SFO and some are talking about MAN, DUB, VLC, and MOW? If LATAM was run by these people, they'd go out of business immediately.

Before launching too many routes other than LIS I would expect LATAM to focus on fixing the 787 issues and the major setback at GIG.

Can AA Make a Comeback at BOS/JFK?

AA has Terminal 8 at JFK and has been slot-squatting at JFK and BOS with seemingly pointless flights like BOS-MDT. As their management has made it clear that they don't want to launch any more point-to-point routes, will AA build up BOS and JFK again? The 788 order could definitely be used to launch...

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2018

What are the longest E145, 738, A319, A320, and A321 routes respectively? Possibly not accurate, but I'll give it a shot... E145: MIA-CLE (938 nm) B738: MIA-SEA (2,367 nm) A319: DFW-UIO (2,239 nm) A320: PHL-SFO (2,191 nm) A321: LAX-LIH (2,272 nm) http://www.gcmap.com/map?P=MIA-CLE,+MIA-SEA,+DFW-UIO...
