From what I heard this was huge stupid mistake on AA some VP or the President himself of Toyota was late on a AA inbound and they would not hold the flight for him so he missed his flight in CHGO. If I was toyota and paying for that flight they better what for me. So without the money from Toyota this flight was not able to make any money. It was a nice way to expand into asia very safe and the blew it.

Quoting B737100 (Reply 5): Can anyone verify if this story of the Toyota VP is true? Thank you!
Sounds so Urban legend. I wouldn't think UA would have agreed to incovinience paxs and jeopardize its On Time Performance due to Toyota hot shots arriving whenever they want to. I would think the turn on the contract has to be something different than that
