Re: Phoenix Aviation Thread - 2019

AA updated its "Fact Sheets" and I noticed they have PHX listed as only serving 86 destinations in 5 countries, while the 5 countries part is correct they serve more than 86 with 95+ in actuality. I wonder if they're not including seasonal routes in their count. http://news.aa.com/multimed...
