They already announced ORD-PEK, so that's out. Maybe more JFK expansion?

About 2-3 months ago I heard that AA was planning Moscow and Nice from multiple, reliable sources. I'm not holding my breathe, but maybe...or it could also be a Brazil and/or Paraguay announcement.

Do not dream about new planes (787's) just yet...especially w/the labor uncertainty AA will face soon...dark gray clouds are on AA's horizon. They would have end up better by declaring bankruptcy back in 2003...DL, NW, CO are all expanding. AA has to remain cautious due to its high costs compared to other US majors...what a shame!

I guess if it's bad news then the market won't be able panic if they do it after close of trading (except maybe a little after hours trading). Then everyone has the weekend to think and hopefully calm down before the markets open on Monday.

It will probably be something exciting like pre-paying some debt, strengthening the balance sheet, announcing a fare-sale on latin american destinations, and new local cuisine choices in first class for flights departing Arkansas  Wink

In all seriousness, maybe an announcement about spinoff of AAdvantage program? I know there has been a lot of pressure lately from investors.

AA always seems to announce schedule changes *after* I see them in the SSIM Silly, so if it was a schedule change it would have been in OAG today.

Okay, not to rain on anyone's JFK parade, but exactly how much "expansion" can JFK take before its gridlock makes people wish they were going through an uncongested airport? You know, like Chicago O'Hare?

Delta, JetBlue, and now American...I know the market's there, but how many more flights can the NYC area handle?

Great point. Most if not all schedule-related announcements are made early in the week (AA's JFK-MXP/BCN route announcements were made on a Monday) so that various business news media outlets have the rest of the working week to circulate/publish the news...If something comes out on a Friday, most people will forget about it by the time Monday rolls around as business news is generally non-existent over the weekend....

While its a crazy idea with the contract negotations open, but is it possible that AA would bite the bullet and order 787s anyway?
