AA is running a schedule change at this very moment (just after 02:00 CDT, 23SEP). I'm flying in Nov 18 and the aircraft type and my seat assignment just dropped out, though the flight and times haven't changed....yet...

Interesting stuff! I am also booked to fly American Airlines in October - three flights on the 8th and 9th. Nothing has changed yet... cross fingers they stay and that there are no delays when I fly otherwise I am screwed due to the connecting nature of the flights (two to each other and one to fly to London).
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Any chance of these potential problems spilling over into November and/or December/January? I'm booked to fly AA from LAS to LAX the day after Thanksgiving -- and I have an onward connection to Brisbane and then Perth on Qantas; return to the US a week later. Then I'm booked on AA on a New Year's Eve flight from LAS to BOS (through and changing planes in DFW) with a return on 1/6/2013. I suppose that gives me plenty of time to make a contingency plan.

we down here in GCM have seen AA reduce from the usual 3 daily flight to just now 2 to MIA.
Its usual here for this time of year, end of school holidays and no one wants to travel it seems. We normally see them return to 3xdaily sometime in November or December.
I presume they either have the aircraft on downtime for maintenance during this period (local airline KX does this and normally has an aircraft gone for C/D checks) or would some other routes see increase during this time of year?
