This one surprises me, not just the timing. They can't make low-fare leisure traffic route work to the Mouse House?
While the OP is slightly sensational - the stock has tanked, and AA just forecasted RASM down again last week. Almost a year ago, we heard they were going to try and raise fares to combat rising fuel costs. Fuel ended up going back down, but it appears AA is still more than willing to get involved ...Jump to post
End this fiasco and give the gates to the only airline that wants them to use them at full capacity that will maximize public benefit--WN. Yeah... because monopolies are always good for the flying public... :roll: With DFW all of about 11 miles from, DAL, giving WN 20 DAL gates would not equate to ...Jump to post
This isn't uncommon on hub-to-hub routes for the US3 (and I probably beyond the US3, but that's what I'm most familiar with). In part demand on hub-to-hub, in part availability of equipment that may be idling between long haul turns, and in part repositioning. For example, AA runs a mixture of 738/3...Jump to post
DL LGA-RSW JUN 3>2 JUL 3>2 AUG 3>2 As someone who flies LGA-RSW multiple times a year to visit family, this is not ideal. It's also not surprising considering the sever drop in RSW traffic over the summer. The one potential upside is that both flights are currently loaded as A320 whereas th...Jump to post
Didn't AA experiment with STN for a short time? AA will never admit it but they flew from JFK to Stansted to out Max jet out of business and they and 9/11 did bankrupt them. Max jet also expanded to all kinds of places like LAX and few other cities, they flew very old 767's. I swear that the AA JFK...Jump to post
I think you mean that the Delta club will be the nicest of the 3 (since it will be newest if nothing else). If anything, it's currently Delta who's not competitive and they're a bit late to the game to finally have a club, but just them putting one in doesn't mean that either AA or UA will do a sin...Jump to post
What about an A380? AUS is an alternate for both IAH and DFW for A380's. Who knows. Perhaps they will have to taxi to the south and around the satellite in order to reach the A380 gates on the east side. Though I don't think many A380's will be coming to AUS anytime soon. It wouldn't be for a while...Jump to post
AA wants the gates and wants flights again. But the DoJ said no. As part of the merger. AA can't fly out of DAL without going to court. It's been a while so I may recall incorrectly, but my recollection is that most/all of the items (gates, slots, etc) that AA gave up at airports included a provisi...Jump to post
*AA MIA-RSW DEC 0>0.8 JAN 0>2 FEB 0>2 MAR 0>2 I can't remember when MIA-RSW got cut. Was this when the ATRs were retired from MIA ops? The route stuck around for a bit post-ATR retirement (I think on 145s) but not for terribly long before AA cut it. They brought it back for a a short period (a week...Jump to post
If they do, they should probably be fired.Jump to post
Ignorant question, but just because they were NYC-based doesn't mean they lived in NYC, does it? Unless AS/VX worked unlike other airlines, it seems that a lot of the NYC-based crews for other airlines don't actually reside in NYC, they commute to NYC.Jump to post
I predicted this response. If I get stuck and don't get home, it impacts my job. Should I risk my job to support their raises? So you only support them if it's convenient to you? If not, you're happy to cross picket lines or give business to their competitors? Your words may say you support labor u...Jump to post

So much for supporting labor unions at Air France.
I support labor unions in general. In the case of AF, I don't know enough about the specifics of the dispute to offer an opinion on the actions of the unions or management, so I won't offer an opinion.

Wow, I never realized the entire state has no commercial service.
Naples, FL (APF): AA Eagle to MIA? AA dropped RSW-MIA a few years back, and only brought it back for a couple of weeks during Christmas. I understand Naples area if rather affluent, but it's also 30 minutes closer drive to MIA/FLL than RSW is. If AA can't make the 'main' airport of the area (RSW) w...Jump to post
I have to say this makes sense, and seems like a smart move on the part of AS. VX was wise to jump on slots at limited airports when they did, because those are great assets, but VX never really knew what to do them without an east coast hub. AS, focusing on the west coast, is in the same boat. Good...Jump to post

is american considering adding CLT and or DCA service at SWF? most other airports in the area have these routes, and SWF has capacity to expand, so I am not sure why they have such little service to major domestic airports. The airport definitely has the capacity but the demand just doesn't seem to...Jump to post
A week later, but for tomorrow’s storm (snow is expected from dawn until midnight in NYC), has any airline announced that it won’t pre-emptively cancel the entire slate of flights? A repeat of January’s meltdown isn’t needed again. By departures, cancellations for tomorrow as of 5:37pm ET: EWR 41% ...Jump to post

One could wonder if a joint proposal from American and Delta to end the perimeter rule at LGA combined with a slot swap, so that the slot share of American at LGA increases to the equivalent of United at EWR, while Delta moves most operations to JFK, wouldn't make sense. LGA is the preferred O&...Jump to post
From what I saw, Jetblue proactively canceled early because of the forecast. As of late Tuesday afternoon, Jetblue had already canceled 422 flights (41% of schedule) systemwide based on storm forecasts.Jump to post
I'm a bit confused as to what's going on at DUB now. It doesn't appear to have snowed in the last while, but nothing is landing. EI105 did recently take off, but the inbound EY41 has started circling over the Irish Sea, much like QR did before they diverted earlier. And UA 23 that went to BRU has no...Jump to post
Airport authority appears to be working to get the runways and taxiways cleared, but not departures/arrivals as of right now. EI100 (EWR), EI136 (BOS), EI104 (JFK), EI130 (BDL) all went to Shannon. Looks like ET504 (ADD) did as well. EY45 (AUH) has been circling for quite sometime near DUB. UA23 (EW...Jump to post
Never forget when i was stuck 4 days at LHR december 2010 because of 5 inches of snow.... I was in Stockholm trying to get home to the US when that ensued.

Not to say that there won't ever be an LAA 319 on that route from time to time, but it is actually scheduled as an LUS 319 as there is still a differentiation between LUS standard, LUS EOW, and LAA 319s. Is there a way to tell that when booking on AA's website, or is it info that is only available ...Jump to post
IF DL ever adds back JFK-Asia, it seems pretty certain it would be an ICN flight at this point, but with the KE JV imminent (if not already implemented?) DL probably doesn't feel the need.

It’s peak Presidents Day recess. Whole NE is off and in Florida. Probably not best time to look at FL frequencies as they will be at their highest now.
