American Airlines lost hundreds of millions, and they are one of the airlines that did "best". One thing I like about them is that they are usually the trailblazer when it comes to saving money. Has everyone forgotten Bob Crandall's $400,000 olives?
Yes, they are taking away all the "frills". Southwest has no frills and everyone raves about them. Jet Blue has IFE but not much else (no, I am not putting down either WN
, just comparing). Maybe AA
is looking at its long term survival and trying to copy the LCC structure to be competitive. No, they probably will never be a LCC, but they can be a very efficient legacy.

Give me a break. They are an airline in financial crisis and they need to make changes.
By the way, I hear that IBM is looking for a CEO because the last one couldn't help the "bottom line". Sound familiar?
And yes, those pillows were very, very dirty most of the time.
