They also could turn profits this year if fuel stays at or around $50 per barrel. Their revenue unlike other majors is still increasing without a frill or gimmick.
|Quoting HZ747300 (reply 8):|
What is interesting is that as fuel prices have risen, airfares have gone down.

|Quoting Ckfred (reply 16):|
The reason that AA doesn't offer IFE on so many flights is that the MD-80 was not purchased to be a long-haul aircraft. So, it never had an IFE system. According to a friend of mine who flies for AA, there was talk of installing IFE when the fleet received new interiors in the late 90s, but the cost was horribly expensive, the equipment would have been very heavy, taking away cargo capability, and the MD-80 cabin has a lower ceiling, so that meant no TV screens in the aisle.
