What If AA Had Gotten PA's Pacific Routes?

Mon Apr 19, 2004 1:21 pm

What would have happened if AA had gotten PA's Pacific routes instead of UA? Would SFO be an AA hub?

Perhaps that would have been a likely scenario; or at least a more significant presence at SJC, LAX, or another west coast gateway. Quite simply, it wouldn't make sense to inherit such a network without embellishing it with a decent feed.

probably it would have been LAX...

it might have also made AA get some 744s.

Could their MD-11 fly some of the routes like LAX-HKG?

"Could their MD-11's fly some of the routes like LAK-HKG?"

Probably; but the dismal fuel burn performance experienced by other carriers would have convinced them to trade them out for B777's even sooner than they did...

AirxLiban,

American Airlines no longer flies MD-11's. The big birds are now all 777's and 767's.

Too bad that AA didn't get those routes. It would have been nice to have more Trans-Pacific routes!
