The local news uses North Texas, something being from Houston I had never even heard. Btw Arlington is bigger than cities like Cleveland, Tampa, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati amd Fort Worth is the 12th largest city in America. The growth here is just phenomenal and there is surprisingly plenty of room f...Jump to post

Why is LGB so concerned about residents? It's not like they are property owners. Almost everyone in Long Beach rents, the median income is one of the lowest in California. Why not try being business friendly first and then attract actual home buyers and build the community? Btw, doesn't LGB have som...Jump to post
Airlines should strictly follow the laws and for any late flights be sure to let the Passengers know they are diverting to BUR and busing them in because the city will not let them land 10 minutes past curfew.Jump to post
And the hard hitter: https://twitter.com/xJonNYC/status/1163086193216692230 Even United changed their minds and will be adding in-seat IFE. AA’s product will noticeably lag behind that of their two biggest competitors once all the refits are done. Haha you think Dougie cares? It'll be a point of pr...Jump to post

Sounds like a new Wide-body Order is going to be needed soon.
This management team got extremely quick contracts done with almost every work group. Its the union (The Association) in this case that has caused about 90% of the delays not the company. Why does the union put up with what is obviously a systematic management problem?Jump to post
Samuelson stated in DFW at a rally for UNITE , he will not agree nor sign a concessionary contract. A contract that pays everyone more is not Concessionary! A contract that cost the company a lot more is not Concessionary. Why must unions lie? There is more to a contract than pay. AA wants to outso...Jump to post

I believe there where on time issues with the A330 CLT-PHX-HI so the flights will just originate in PHX.Jump to post
A bit disappointed to see the announcement being this narrow as I expected to see several new routes.

Amazing how many A.netter still don't understand a Market is point A to B only and that is a Unique market. Each one is a Unique and is priced according by passenger demand.

But they will be modified with the superior oasis product eventually. The whole point of Oasis is to increase seat density, seeing as it isn't changing, the 320s aren't planning to be Oasifyed. As far as I know, there are currently no plans to add power to the LUS 320s (despite bridge saying otherw...Jump to post

Interesting Tidbit is that Parker and Isom claim that the regional operation is doing better from an operational standpoint than Mainline. In ways that is good, and in other ways its very concerning. Everything else has already been said. Wall Street obviously not impressed, but it looked like the ...Jump to post

The solution seems obvious, if you cannot fly without an emotional support animal than you are not emotionally stable enough to fly.
Period end of story!!!!!!! I know it seems uncaring but its just common sense.

Well the Company is turning its back on their employees. The NMB scheduled three days of talks this week, then abruptly canceled them, the Association made all necessary things to be their and the company told the NMB no, so the NMB canceled, well we all know the NMB can order AA to be there, so mu...Jump to post
The idea that any contract that doesn't give each group on each line item something better than previous is concessionary is a bunch of BS and a big part of the unions problem selling expectations of every line item being industry leading or the contract is concessionary.

Was surprised by a few of these as well but it’s impossible to tell the reasoning, Max is likely part of it, but aa could have issues on a few fronts- deferred maintenance schedules from this summer could be catching up with them on the 738 fleet, MD80s are exiting in early September and there’s al...Jump to post

Full flights don't necessarily mean profitable flights. I would think that CLT being a banking center would be an important market from JFK. As for full flights not being profitable. I know that is a popular position on here but it isn’t true in the current environment. Back in the early 1990s when...Jump to post
With This on going MAX grounding I don't Even know why WN didn't just publish a flight schedule until January it could operate Without the MAX.

This is much to do about nothing and is 100% marketing, props to United. They are changing nothing (accept the passenger notification part) its operating as usual and the same as United has been and all the airlines currently do operational decision making.Jump to post
