Hey Guys:

I came across this rather interesting article that tells a rather interesting story of whats going on with AA, and its fuel loading policy.

Man this is old news. Believe we had a discussion about it TechOps

At the end of the day, what AA is doing is well within FARs.

Still, If a plane needs the fuel for a diversion or if ATC can't assign them a runway yet the plane needs that reserve fuel. It's more than necessary.

And that is what counts. If they have done the cost benefit analysis and have figured that the cost of an extra diversion here or there is less than the potential gain from carrying less fuel, more power to them.
