LOL! I was poking the beast with the merger comment.

Money has been used for worse in the history of aviation, so it is a possibility, no?

Re: AA upgrades MIA-MVD first 787 route scheduled from MIA

Flew this in 2007, and it happened to be one of the first refurb J 763 plane in the fleet at the time, the MVD-EZE flight on the way home was fun too.

I bet the beach area has changed a lot down there.

Re: COPA to go all 737; phase out E190s

Is the cabin comfortable from a passenger perspective on the 190? As a side note, in 2018 my AA VVI-MIA cancelled for mechanical. AA booked me on Copa thru PTY and onto MIA, I really enjoyed their service in J, I would use them again if I can get on their lay flats. Great FA's, food, easy transfer, ...

Dying to see the KLM 777 repainted with the new livery "in Amarillo". I bet it looks very bright.

Lots more turquoise options if they did paint in ABQ.

Only 2 Seats Open in Y

What is proper etiquette in a 3x3x3 economy cabin when your seat assignment is 24C and seats 24A and 24B are the only 2 empty seats in the Y cabin? If you were in this situation, seated in 24C, would you slide over to 24B in the late stages of boarding to dissuade other passengers from trying to poa...

Euro Business Seats

How often do narrow body planes flying in Europe change the number of business seats offered for different routes? Would the same A320 plane for BA LHR-FRA have more business seats than say LHR-AGP? If the seats are fluid and demand high, couple/would an airline sell 50 business seats on a short haul?

AA has 7 daily scheduled 777's DFW-HNL/OGG/KOA during the Christmas season compared to only a daily DL ATL-HNL 330 and a daily UA IAH-HNL 777 respectfully. Worth noting are the other non West Coast flights that capture connecting traffic and pull feed away from ATL, IAH & DFW. UA has daily fligh...

My business will go to NK after AA, DL, UA, AS. Unless WN figures out a way to charge me for checked baggage. And WN puts in a First seat, then Spirit will land back into its familiar spot of "never" for me.

Re: Changes on AA937/938 MIA-VVI-MIA

I flew MIA-VVI-MIA this Fall. Outgoing was 16/16. Return flight cancelled before boarding, but they said it was full.

Love the 757. My favorite ride when it doesn't cancel.

Not a fan of how AA configured the Max.
