Re: Passenger repeatedly punches back of reclined seat

Typically I don't recline my seat since I know how much of a PITA it is. I'm never able to use my full size personal laptop when traveling in Economy if there is some...

Re: AA to make SEA an INT hub/new codeshare with AS and LHR and India

I have recently heard a number that a single international flight cancellation costs 1 million dollars. AA would be insanely stupid to take that risk. There is no chance a Reserve can be ready to fly in less than 24-35 hours. The flight to BLR would cancel the minute 1 pilot called in sick. AA is h...

AA might have a different deal worth the FAA but I’m sure it’s very similar. Any flying that requires a duty day over 18hours requires an FRMS exemption. At United all of these exemptions require 30hours in base rest prior to departure to be acclimated. Also when you get to BLR it requires 50 hours...
