Re: American adds more Asia to SEA, and other long-haul changes

On a separate note, what will happen to the AS partners like SQ, FI and EK when AS goes to OneWorld? And is this OneWorld or OneWorld Connect? Full Oneworld membership. And nothing should really happen to those partners unless AS drops them. Qantas partners with Emirates, China Airlines, and China ...

DFW-TLV is the only route that survived the August 2019 announcement... besides the PHL-KEF shift from DFW.

Nice to see SEA-PVG despite the massive LAX drops. AA's really going for Delta at SEA, though Delta will gain market share on LAX-PVG.

Just clarifying... these were Norwegian’s remaining Boeing orders? So now they only have 20 A321LRs on order?

Also this is the largest single cancellation for the MAX? I believe this beats Avolon’s cancellation of 75 MAXs?
