Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2020

Don Carty probably regrets not ordering more 763s in 2002. Now AA is stuck buying expensive 788s. Why would Don Carty care? He hasn't been with AA since 2003. Further, even if they had ordered them back then (with what money? The whole US airline industry was hurting severely in 2002), they'd still...

Re: AA launching BOS to 3 new cities

What is with this obsession with BOS? I can’t imagine anyone is really making money here. In my view, it's kind of like a smaller scale LAX. BOS is the biggest CSA in the U.S. to not have a significant legacy airline hub, and as a consequence the market is fragmented. Historically almost all the le...
