Should I Be Worried About My Upcoming MQ Flight?

I'm going to be taking a vacation to Australia this fall (or spring from Australia's perspective), so a few weeks ago I purchased a ticket for SMF-LAX-SYD on American Eagle / Qantas for October 17. I perhaps bought that ticket a little impulsively, but I had found a good deal through a consolidator and jumped at the chance to fly on Qantas, the carrier with the reputation for the best service on that route (not the mention the opportunity to fly on an A380 for the first time!) for a price lower than I had found on other airlines.

However, October is a long way off, and with all the talk about AA being in Chapter 11 and speculation about which routes might be cut, what are the chances American Eagle will still be flying SMF-LAX in October? After all, it's a relatively new route, and a highly competitive one with a total of four carriers on it now. If that route does get cut, how would I be reaccommodated? Would I get rebooked on a completely different airline for the SMF-LAX leg? Or rerouted on a different AA flight (which would require a rather circuitous routing like SMF-DFW-LAX-SYD or SMF-DFW-BNE-SYD)?

AQ is not going anywhere. As for the route, that is anyone's guess- airlines cancel routes all the time. If that happens, you'll probably be re-booked on another airline, or thrugh AA, possibly with a voucher or the sort.



The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!
