I always thought they should have overhauled TWA and made it their LCC.
Reasons for TWA being LCC:
-80 based & 757 (smaller jets) (DUMP 767s on AA
-Flights to a lot of leisure destinations
-Motivated workforce that wasn't really interested in being integrated into AA
the way AA
wanted them to be
-Single major hub @ STL
-The big plus is that TWA would still be alive and we would see the transition livery still!!!!
I think it could have been possible had AA
renegotiated all the leases and such. The AA
workforce was paid less than AA
so they could have kept it that way, and integrated the two where it made most sense.
Of course that was my dream, but not to be (for now).
Anyways, Gerald Arpey is on the record for saying he doesn't see any use for an AA
LCC, so I wouldn't count on them doing it anytime soon.
