December JFK goes down from 109 average daily flights to only 76 average. It's not just the holiday period that got whacked. For example, the first Thursday of the month December 6th went from 109 departures to 73. It’s worth noting that AA further cut PHL in the winter. I haven’t looked for upgaug...Jump to post
So many people complaining about JFK cuts and no one addressing the fact that they are in a permanent and unaddressable #3 spot due to slots and airspace. How do you propose they get to profitability? It seems you all want a return to status quo where AA lost money just because "the market is ...Jump to post
Here is what I'm sure everyone at AA management knows, but won't tell their NYC crew. All those high value customers have moved to DL. They aren't coming back unless DL starts cutting routes or product. And that clearly isn't happening. Without those ff, DL will continue to eat their lunch in NYC. ...Jump to post
As always, GREAT report. Thanks! Two questions: 1. Is Guam part of this report, whenever there are changes? 2. How long does it take you on an average Sunday to put this report together? Again, thanks for all your work!!! That’s a good question. I believe GUM is included. I require one of the two c...Jump to post

I’ve never understood two things about ATL. 1. Why were A-D not designed the same width? I get that they served different purposes at the time but there seems to have been no forethought as to future growth 2. The simplicity of ATL’s A-D parallel concourses design was great. Why was it not carried ...Jump to post
Don’t forget boys and girls, the current Atlanta airport was designed in a different era, like a lot of America’s airports. A, B, and C, were designed by Delta and Eastern. Delta of course originally had A, and the south half of B. Eastern had the north half of B, and C. And of course, remember, Eas...Jump to post

Later on we will find out what frequency or route was cut to make room for DL's 3x daily JFK-LHR.

DL is weird in that there's a internal announcement but NO press release. I'd thought this would be confirmed with a press release by now. I doubt if they will do a public press release on all of this, until the DOT gives final approval of the Haneda slots. That must be coming anytime, or they woul...Jump to post

Maybe it is that a lot of the traffic between South Florida and AZ is based in Broward County. I know when I lived in South Florida for three years, I avoided Miami airport at all costs. I flew out of FLL, even if it meant connecting, versus a non-stop option out of Miami. Most of my colleagues did...Jump to post
And who said or suggested AR was well managed? I just clarified the assumption you had and why JFK service is being partially cut for the summer. Get off your high horse.

I don't think DTW and MSP were generating revenue premiums 10-15 years ago for NWA and then Delta either. The core question remains, why is Delta now abe to generate that revenue premium? DTW and MSP both earn a much higher revenue premium today than they did 10-15 years ago. Take some time to educ...Jump to post
Another PR fluff piece People on this board can be so negative. It really is sad. If you don't like a particular airline, for whatever reason, no need to bash it. Just go fly somebody else. You have plenty of choices. This used to be a fun board, a positive board. Now so many people can't wait to s...Jump to post

The best example I can give you on this is as follows..... I have flown Delta most of my career. (retired now). I flew AA at times, when they were more convenient. Many, many, times, and I do mean MANY times, to help get a plane out on time, I would always see any deadheading Delta flight attendants...Jump to post
Just finished listening to the call. Interesting commentary that the Pacific was the best performing entity led by Hong Kong & Japan outperforming both Atlantic & Latin. China improved too with code-shares to interior China out of PEK/PVG on CZ. Finally AA is making profits in the Pacific a...Jump to post
At this point, DL's reputation has been so polished for a while that it can price themselves above the competition. The chances of them dropping the ball (cancellations, baggage loss, major delays) are significantly less in my experience than flying the competition. And if they screw up, they'll gi...Jump to post
Delta has ~3,800 flights a day that don't start or end in ATL. Command of fact is useful. Don't forget, just because a lot of the flights don't start or end in Atlanta, a LOT of those flights have to GET their aircraft earlier in the day, from Atlanta. So yes, Atlanta being shut down, does affect t...Jump to post
I always wonder how one of the biggest airports in the world, (sorry, the biggest) manages to do this process so well when so many others, even smaller regional airports like STL, can't. Hats off to them. I don't know the numbers, but is Atlanta the biggest O&D airport? Yes, they are the bigges...Jump to post
Question I have always had about the shutdown. The day of the shutdown, I was in Chickasha, Oklahoma on business. That night, I flew back to Atlanta from Oklahoma City, on Delta. When I got back to Atlanta that night, it was so sad to see, all of those Eastern planes just sitting/parked everywhere. ...Jump to post

Who cares what DL thinks? They own a 49% stake which is a minority. VS is still calling the shots especially with this EZ deal. Wrong. VS is now actually a minority owner. Delta has the 49%. and the D/AF/KM joint venture ownership has (I think) 33%, which gives VS (I think) 18%. Delta, because, of ...Jump to post
Every company is for sale--it is a board's fiduciary duty to get the best return for shareholders, and it that means a sale, so be it.

Look at what they cut when they announced those adds. Zero-sum basically. Cutting a few routes and adding double the amount? Expanding across the oceans and state lines more and more.

The bottom line on all of this is the AA stock price. AA has to get their stock price up, or the investor community will not be happy. Getting the stock price up is Doug Parker's challenge, or the board will not be happy.Jump to post

DL isn't really doing any better in Asia considering they just cut SEA-HKG. he wasnt suggesting that.
