Re: AA to begin DFW/CLT to SBN and ECP. ORD-LGA Shuttle

I did not realize it, but it looks like LGA-ORD-LGA is already pretty much a shuttle operation with virtually all 738's and hourly service, save for 1 or 2 two hour gaps. So this is more of a service enhancement than a schedule enhancement.

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2018

I don't see what's wrong with keeping a few 767-300ERs in the fleet until the 787-9 are delivered (Dispite the small numbers), quite a few of them are around 13 years of age. So they are still useful. How early can AA get more 789 delivery slots? Can they use some of the 24x 75Ls to fill in for 763...

Re: Potential new Europe routes out of CLT

Sorry, I don't see any more CLT TA routes. Why? What routes aren't already completely covered by PHL, ORD, MIA, DFW, & a lesser extent JFK. CLT-LHR/MAD/BCN/FCO/DUB/CDG/FRA is an expansive network for a hub that is predominantly connecting traffic. I have no idea how 763's shifting to PHL/MIA som...

I also hear that when this happens, AA will bring their 777 and 787 fleets to the LUS hubs, CLT and PHL. Who else knows about this and what will happen? The A330 - in terms of both size ...

Re: More F9 Adds at PHL - JAX, MEM, MSN, & OMA

AA was already in with MEM/PHL with at least daily service. I was kinda shocked on that one, there's other fruit on the MEM tree that seems sweeter. AA is on PHL-MEM with 2-3 ERJ's a day based on the season. PHL-MEM averages 90-100 PDEW so there might be some room considering AA's flights carry con...
