Re: American Airlines Network Thread - 2020

All in all, LAX and JFK will likely to be the biggest losers from this, though I see just about every hub except for CLT & DFW "losing" a lot, at least in the short term. Long term, places like ORD & DCA will be fine. I don't get how AA can get through this if they shrink JFK/LAX ...

Re: American Airlines might file bankruptcy again

Actually likely the opposite, airlines like NK, B6, F9 rely more on higher load factors with ancillary fees. They are at higher risk with lower bookings as their margins are already thin. Moreover business people are more likely to travel because they have to be there then the leisure travel of the...

Re: Why doesn’t AA fly widebodies on JFK-SFO/LAX

How does First Class on the A321 compare to First Class on the 767-200 that flew those routes for decades? The A321T was a significant upgrade for AA over the 762 in all the cabins, F had been in a 1x2x1 config which became a 1x1 config on the 321T and J went from a 2x2x2 confit to just 2x2. So far...
