What the heck? Thrilled about ORD, but why the sudden reversal of longstanding practices? Where are they even going to go in ORD?

I wonder if they sense blood with AA and are trying to take advantage?

I'm all for anything that "takes advantage" of AAmerican!!!

Re: AA Strands Dallas Cowboys

After Cowboys' most-recent defeat, AA added insult to injury by being unable to move them expeditiously when an aircraft went tech, due to inability to find a plane/pilot combination that would work.

Re: Why are turboprops so unpopular in the US?

There have been a few topics discussing the turboprop market and usage in the U.S., but I can't seem to get to the bottom of why the they are so unpopular here in the states. As we know, turboprops are slower but far more efficient than small regional jets, and it seems like DL, AU, and AA are ofte...

And the regional international destinations when?
AUS neither interested in AV from SAL nor CM from PTY before they chose SAT?

Re: Boeing and WN sued over 737 MAX safety issues

This seems like a typical attempt at a class action lawsuit. I find it interesting they didn't add United (which also has 73Max equipment), and which also has bought Boeing over the years.

Re: American Airlines Admits It Has No Brand Purpose

ORD is just domestic and summer seasonal leisure routes to Europe. Their recent additions to ORD have been regional routes that UA already serves. They’re growing CLT but are gate restricted which will change soon. A majority of AA employees are unhappy with AA and the management team. I would be v...
