I'd email them and specifically request a refund because you relied on their staff's wrong information. :checkmark: Even faster is a Tweet. American Airlines gets back to you in 20 minutes on average and responds the most of any North American carrier according to a recent survey posted on TPG. :ai...Jump to post
I am sure they (LH) prefer IAG (U2) over AB :checkmark: IAG has a poor record competing in LH Group core markets and the AB 'takeover' only added to Lufti's dominance. Also WW still has to show he can successfully compete in the LCC segment. Vueling so far has failed as a Pan European carrier, but ...Jump to post
You have to be braindead if you think the way to attract the MAN premium payer is to stop or reduce non-stop services and get them to route over LHR or DUB instead You're calling WW 'braindead'? ;) "British travellers will enjoy connections via Dublin from cities such as Birmingham, Manchester...Jump to post
I do think AA at ORD is in jeopardy Hm, yeah, that's why AA is spending millions building 5 new gates for additional flights. ;) The MAN cut back shouldn't surprise anybody. The rising star is Dublin, a growing IAG hub with EI / FR connections to the UK regions and beyond. I believe AA ORD-DUB even...Jump to post

$200,000,000 is a lot of money It's a bargain considering Delta paid $450,000,000 for its share in China Eastern. The partnership with a Chinese carrier most certainly is a game changer and already American benefited getting the desired slots for the LAX startup. It's kind of ironic, Delta spending...Jump to post
AA does pretty well in both FRA and MUC :confused: It's not pretty nor well and about to get worse with OW partner AB shutting down. The world's largest carrier with feed from the world's largest domestic air travel market serves none of the top 10 O&D routes between Germany & USA, despite ...Jump to post
DL/VS carries a majority of its JFK-MAN passengers on DL connections beyond JFK. Not really an ideal set-up considering its NYC pax prefer LGA. Most likely money losing ;) Then again Delta has no choice. They have to increase JFK volume to make it work. Wouldn't be the first time though they fail. ...Jump to post
DL has the largest hub at JFK followed by B6. AA is the smallest of the 3 :checkmark: Delta really is in a tough spot. With no other choice, JFK has to be its most important NE TATL gateway despite the many drawbacks, most importantly its own domestic LGA network. American knows all about it with i...Jump to post

Can you give us some data on how B6 is kicking DL's ass with MINT in JFK and BOS?

if there is the will there is a way and AA hasn't wanted that said way (NYC) for awhile With its long history & experience of a split NYC operation AA long ago decided JFK is important, but can't & doesn't have to be its main hub for international flying.

someone new can only enter the market -if- there are slots available.

The only way legacies can compete with the rise of long haul LCCs is hub to partner hub or market with good sized planes and a healthy mix of premium travelers.

Hawaii is the United States, and flights from Hawaii to Asia are TPAC, so they must be included in any fair comparison I excluded HNL-NRT to be fair.
