With AA originally buying 12 777, obviously to replace all MD-11s. BUT, when the order was increased to 34 they stated it was to increase service in the Pacific. I think this could be the start of more East Coast to Asia services, after AA got the rights to fly BOS and JFK-NRT taken away from them by the Japanese gov't, and East coadt to HNL. I also see Seoul after Inchon Int'l opens, and I see AUSTRALIA. I agree that the time is right for more US-Australia services and some new blood to do it, plus as we all know, the animals always go after the new blood for the kill. So it could go either way. But if AA does decide to return to the Aussie market, I coul see Brisbane, Sydney, or Cairns-San Jose. San Jose offers less congestion than its nearby counterpart, SFO and no-so-close LAX. Plus it already has 777 service to NRT. AA-to be something special in the Australian air.
