Re: AA at FAI (Fairbanks) operational issues

I'm new here, but an online friend was aware of my AA FAI issues from last week so I wanted to share my experiences. My family was supposed to fly AUS-DFW-FAI last Tuesday (6/8). Because of a missing crew, our AUS flight left two hours late, so we missed our connection at DFW, forcing us to stay th...

Any AAers know how the crew rotations are built into FAI? If they are adding a 'tag' from a downline station in the name of productivity then it can mess with max duty regs.
