Re: AA Unions File Grievance Over Lack of Hotel Availability

If the crew were timed out and couldn't do the return to NYC, wouldn't AA have known that prior to the flight leaving NYC for FCA? If it was known that the crew would need to overnight at FCA, hotel rooms should have been secured before allowing the flight to leave NYC, no?

This makes more sense. You won't see UA and YV putting these on ORD-IND or ORD-MKE. No one (myself included) would ever want to fly them, especially when the drive isn't that bad. Actually, ORD-MKE was the first route that came to mind when I read the article. It's short enough for the limitations ...
