In light of the fact that UAUA/ CAL will probabaly resolve their differences and press on with a mega merger as early as next week, AMR will be placed in a distant third position. The following article/blog (from a DFW airline reporter) is one of the most negative I have read to date on AMR's ongoing prospests to attract customers. There are many here more knowledgeable than me reference AMR and its underpinnings and possible future. I would appreciate your insights...

From the Dallas Morning News (normally AMR friendly)

A little different atmosphere since that thread was writtten - AMR' huge losses + the reality of UAUA/ CAL.

AA needs drastic change. No question about it. The flawed thought is that AA can maintain status quo and it will all turn out ok one day. It wont. AA will be food for the vultures if they dont get their ass in order. AA has the pieces to make it work. DL or UA/CO would love to have what they have in MIA and DFW (UA already has ORD). But the pieces arent fitting together.

Drastic change. Nothing short of it will make AA viable long term. You can interpret that how you will. Im not advocating chaper 11, but I dont think it would be a bad idea either.

AA doesnt even need to think about US. That would make this worse.

It is what it is...

I think one of the biggest problem that AA faces ( other than their high labour costs ) is their apparent apathy towards Asia . Even with the current financial problems worldwide Asia is still where much of the future economic growth in the world lies and currently AA fly with their own metal to a grand total of 3 cities ( NRT PVG DEL ) two of which only get a single daily flight ... while struggling to get slots for a daily flight to a 4th city ( BJS ) . Oneworld has two hubs in Asia and incredibly AA doesn't even fly to one of them ( HKG ) in spite of the fact that it is a major financial centre , how can AA position itself as a business travellers airline when it doesn't even fly to HKG ? I realise that they have been up against some historical disadvantages due to UA and DL ( NW ) holding a huge amount of grandfathered rights but even then they just do not seem to be trying .

Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)
