Very well said. It is a felony offense to disrespect the crew .. Did you mean "to disobey FA/crewmember instructions" (pertaining to safety mainly if I understand correctly)? Disrespect would be an incredibly subjective and overly broad criteria that could land a felony charge on all sort...Jump to post
Due to various constraints, it was never possible to directly link a business-focused area like HPN to the West Coast with the A320 or E190, but it could be possible with the A220. No doubt JB's route planners are excited about the possibilities with the A220! Actually went into this thread with HP...Jump to post
It's not just about the money. If it was, travel, meetings, conventions, etc. would have come full stop back in the 90s with the advent of the internet and webinars. Would it??

(pardon the double-post) What's crazy to think about back then is AA flew STL-HNL as well on 763. Likely on their own metal by 2002 (not TWA).

There were no specially configured 767 aircraft for Hawaii. These aircraft rotated across the system. They did not just do HNL or OGG turns. Actually, there were. Those aircraft did *not* rotate across the system, but were used on high density Hawaii and domestic flights. http://departedflights.com...Jump to post
I feel like an idiot. For the longest time, I wondered why the inside page of the 757 safety card showed a bulkhead coach seat with no exit door. I JUST realized that the reason for this is because the pictures taken, and continually used well into the 2000s, was from the original configuration for ...Jump to post
That tired old trope. Flying on the legacies in the USA is not cheap. Even our LCCs are rather expensive. Try Europe with your argument. There you can really actually book super low fares.

Weren't these the variants of the D10 that had tape-based PTVs in the F cabin? I think they also flew MIA-LAX. They were still using the 3-class DC-10 on IAD-LAX IIRC up until 1999/2000. I'd imagine any variation with the Weber 7502s (AkA "Woolly Mammoths" when it came to American's 7502s...Jump to post
Back on subject: as I recall, 10 of the A300s were reconfigured in the 3-classes for the long hauls. I can't remember if they were reconfigured back to F/Y when withdrawn from the European routes, or if they were returned as-is. They were a white-tail lease at the outset (to persuade AA into orderi...Jump to post

It appeared to be the direction they were headed for coach, but then they started the new blue theme from the 777/S80 which was dark blue leather with a dark blue fabric insert and adjustable headrest and went with that instead.

In general, I like the AA brand refresh and dimensions on the various planes. .
