I think I read that they will be adding a few extra seats on the MD-80 as a result of removal of galley space. A few seats multplied by 300 or so MD-80s is the equivalent of adding a few aircrafts and this is before AA can decide to bring the stored MD-80s back to service.

unfortunately, their SJC-NRT route was a big money loser and being cut after 15 years....
|Quoting Goingboeing (Reply 7):|
Because people are flying more and more on loss leader fares. If you cut supply to match the profitable demand, you can make money. That's what AA is doing. Smart move, IMHO.
|Quoting Thebry (Reply 9):|
Yet another shrewd decision. I flew the AA128 / AA129 flights between SJC / NRT frequently (once a quarter) and will miss the convenience. However, the plane was rarely ever at 70% passenger capacity. Why waste a big bird like the 772ER on such low yields? It'll do American better service on a new route.
|Quoting AAden (Thread starter):|
and seem to be cutting routes all the time. if people are fkying more and more then why is Aa cutting routes?
|Quoting Alitalia744 (Reply 13):|
Intersting, when AA does it you say "Smart Move." Yet bitched about Delta's doin the same thing...
