What would have happened if AA had gotten PA's Pacific routes instead of UA? Would SFO be an AA hub?

Perhaps that would have been a likely scenario; or at least a more significant presence at SJC, LAX, or another west coast gateway. Quite simply, it wouldn't make sense to inherit such a network without embellishing it with a decent feed.

probably it would have been LAX...

it might have also made AA get some 744s.

Could their MD-11 fly some of the routes like LAX-HKG?



PARIS, FRANCE...THE BEIRUT OF EUROPE.

Probably; but the dismal fuel burn performance experienced by other carriers would have convinced them to trade them out for B777's even sooner than they did...


B77014-KIAH

AirxLiban,

American Airlines no longer flies MD-11's. The big birds are now all 777's and 767's.

Too bad that AA didn't get those routes. It would have been nice to have more Trans-Pacific routes!

Respectfully,
