Why can’t AA just use an actual aircraft for their safety video? What is with those weird office chairs in an empty hangar? They should just go back to this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=nmxQbuHAkZM Simple, not gimmicky, and the employees are warm and friendly without looking like robots. Update the...Jump to post
Lufthansa is a great carrier for short haul (economy and business) and I'm jealous of your trip! Hope to make a trip myself soon. Nice report thanks for sharing!!Jump to post
CLE-DFW in January. And hopefully a few more before AA retires the Super 80! Love that bird so muchJump to post
However, I highly doubt that CLT-MUC can support two carriers. I I'd agree 100%. However CLT-MUC is not the only market for either carrier on that route. AA will have more of an advantage with CLT being such a fortress hub for them. Being able to route all their MUC demand through CLT. LH can only ...Jump to post
Nonsense post. Bookings for May are already heavier than current early April (slow season) bookings. Not already failing. I wouldn't be surprised if this route ends up being very successful. It definitely is. They're showing around 100 or less seats remaining, mainly in Economy. Exactly. Which is g...Jump to post

Pilot did a go around and requested runway lights turned on..... hmm.
I don't see where MAH4546 said anything wrong... AA has, in fact, started removing IFE from 738s. And they have been taking deliveries of new aircraft that I believe at one point were planned to have AVOD, and now don't. AA's final 738 orders all arrived with AVOD/in seat IFE. And no AVOD/IFE syste...Jump to post
Ditch the AVOD and give me convenient tablet holders instead of bulky often broken in seat screens. Yes please!Jump to post
738s have already begun to have IFE removed. Not true. No 738 with seatback IFE has been retrofitted yet. The older 738s that never had personal IFE are being retrofitted first.

When it come to IFE , am I the only one that hasn’t owned a pair of headphones that can be plugged into something for several years now? The disposable head phone you’re going to get on a plane are totally useless from sound quality perspective. I haven’t used JetBlue’s IFE last couple time on them...Jump to post
They have yet to remove a single seat IFE yet we have all these made up accounts of people refusing to fly AA for that reason? 738s have already begun to have IFE removed. Not true.

Are they really worse than all of DLs reconfigured aircraft such as MD90s, The 199 seat 752, 234 seat 753 and airbus airplanes with lavatories literally in the galleys? I guess DL has TVs on most aircraft and a few snacks AA doesn’t have but generally I find AA planes cleaner than DLs. I haven’t be...Jump to post

I dont agree with this move by the FAA. I think its over caution caused by MH 17.
This is just being way too cautious when its really not needed.

I think its a good deal that finally brings some stability to our government.
