Re: TWA Transatlantic Drawdown Time Line

The last TWA Route to Europe was STL-LGW ! AA ordered 9 new 767-300ERs to replace them. American originally placed an order for 15 767-300s to replace the A300s that were being removed from transatlantic service. That order was subsequently reduced to nine, and unrelated at the time to the TWA tran...

Re: United announces Voluntary Separation Program

It looks like this is a "front-line" (customer service) staff offer, whereas I believe the AA offers announced recently is for management. DL's may have been broader since fewer employees are represented but, either way, AA/UA offer comparisons may not be valid.

Re: AA staff layoffs coming

Will Doug Parker sign up to this? Not at all, Parker is very smart and has done a great job. Remember AA was on track to liquidate in 2011 before he led the US/HP purchase of AA. American started its CH11 restructuring in Nov 2011, and would have emerged with or without a merger. The AA/US merger w...

Re: Boeing examines GEnX powered 767

Didn't I read somewhere that production of elements specific to PAX 767s have been stopped long ago, suppliers scrapped their lines etc ? The cargo (and military) one is still in production, so that would just be a reengine of those, but the PAX is another story. True, that's one of the reasons it'...

Re: Questionable (Failed?) USA Mergers

US Airways/America West looked good from a route network perspective - the combined airline would have strong presence in west and east USA. The merged US/HP became strong enough to eventually buy American and grow into the world's largest airline. The US Airways management team may have developed ...

That said, might an MD-80 be a suitable replacement for the B732, if AA allows some to be sold?


American has disposed of hundreds and hundreds of MD80s. If you want one, it's out there...

Perhaps less noteworthy on its own, but add the mix Jeff Knittel (formerly CIT) taking over as Chairman and CEO of Airbus mid-January. With responsibility for Airbus’ commercial aircraft business throughout the Americas, as well as for providing leadership for the company’s helicopters and space and...

American only has 20 airplanes with more than 300 seats (the 777-300ERs), and until 2013 their largest aircraft had only 247 seats.


While this is true in the absolute, the A330-300s have 291 seats and the high-density 2-class 772s have 289, upping the total count in the ~300 seat bucket.
