RE: AA Reg # For Flight Tomorrow

If you don't mind me asking, what info is that based on? The AA website has every ticketed triple in first class as a 1-2-1, if thats what your going on. But if not...Awesome! can't wait to swivel that chair.

RE: JetBlue To Announce New Flights In August

AUS does have a couple of gates open. Gate 2 sees no regular usage, except by international charters. I also believe that there are gates at the end of the west concourse either 24 or 25 that aren't used, unless United has expanded their gates. <a href="http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/austinairport/airli...

You have a valid point FlFlyGuy, but it seems to me that AA used to fly 757s with a full load most of the time. I guess they're decreasing size and increasing frequency.
