IF JFK/LAX/SFO would lose the 321T it would be gone for good. No other route could support that a/c as configured. I don't see JFK-LAX/SFO loosing the A321T anytime soon, even if we are in Covid pandemic, because there is a still lot of business traffic between JFK and LAX/SFO, especially LAX. I do...Jump to post
the fact that it took up till 2019 (with the 321XLR launch) for airlines to find a replacement. Interesting that airlines managed to retire 65% of the world’s passenger 757 fleet before they found a replacement. This again?

Those seats are reminiscent of the legendary row 17 “super seat” on AA’s 763s. Those were repurposed old generation business class recliners also used for crew rest and sold as economy on flights under 8 hours. I was lucky enough to sit in row 17 twice. MIA-LAX and EWR-MIA. Was really nice having t...Jump to post

My enduring memory was chatting with one of the MH FAs in the back of the plane on the EWR-DXB leg. U.S. CBP had refused him entry at EWR (even as flight crew) and he was deadheading back to KUL. He was fairly relaxed about the whole situation. I wonder why they denied him entry, did he say? Althou...Jump to post
Or... reduce a few of the frequencies out of JFK and move those 321Ts over to MIA. :-) in August JFK to LAX is down to 5 a day on weekdays. So if they wanted to experiment with MIA to JFK on 321T's they could, but this probably isn't the proper time to judge if the response would be worthwhile or n...Jump to post
Does it make sense for AA to keep the transcontinental A321s in a 102-seat 3-class config, or should AA reconfigure the transcontinental A321s to a 190-seat standard domestic config or a 158-seat config with the first class cabin being in the current transcontinental business class configuration?

Should I take an over/under that the same people whining about that, would be squealing to ride upstairs in a 747.....?
They don't have a monopoly, however they do have the largest amount of flights and passengers at EWR. Here's how it got that way: PeoplExpress -> Continental -> United Plus the fact that AA / DL / TW / NW / EA were much more JFK and LGA focused and never considered building up a large presence at EWR.Jump to post
Anyone buying US domestic F for the catering needs their head checked. The appeal for me is the legroom; I'm tall and the ability to sit comfortably on a flight is much appreciated. Disagree.

The MAX is still on the Ops Spec and still maintained, I don't think there is any scope consideration.

The Super Diamond found on all but 19 of the 772s and all 789s at AA is an excellent seat.
