Re: Official: AA Introduces Basic Economy

I'd like to know which 10 markets AA will start the basic economy fare with. (didn't see it in the AA link above) I'd imagine it will be the 10 markets with the most competition from spirit. I'm actually surprised they kept 100% miles earning. I would have thought they would cut it to 50. This actu...

Re: Official: AA Introduces Basic Economy

Re: Is is possible for DL to resume DTW-HKG? Begin DTW-MNL?

I would not be surprised at all to see DTW-HKG again... However I don't think you'll see US-MNL on DL metal for the foreseeable future. I think it is more likely that you would see a tag on flight like SEA-HKG-MNL (if they decided to pull NRT).
