A couple of points on the AA cuts. 1. AA is down a 321T due to the incident in JFK with the runway lights. I am not 100 percent sure about this frame, but it may be a write-off. That would force AA to trim some 321T frequency, which would explain JFK-LAX. Also note that AA wanted to run this type f...
