B6 might not get the additional LGA slots other than a few; it would likely have to divest them at a slot-restricted airport, and B6 also currently has exclusive use of the Marine Air Terminal. However, what I could see is acquiring NK for the fleeting, and then canceling the A319neo part of the or...Jump to post
You do not understand the enormity of the situation if you believe the hub remains. This is now about survival for the airlines. The issue we are faced with is beyond enormous. This is not about prestige or trying new strategies (TPAC hub). This is about stopping the hemorrhage that lies in front o...Jump to post
Honestly, unless we enter the Great Depression the May AA schedule is probably the floor for AA ops at PHX. PHX will essentially be a "focus city" in May. When things recover I don't really see it being scaled down to less than an 80-90 daily departures station with only flights to the ot...Jump to post

They are not closing LAX, but the station will resemble a focus city not hub. Even AA has publicly stated China flights most likely will not be back.

I really cannot see how AA operates anything that resembles a full TA schedule in S20. We'll be lucky if there are 5 destinations back by July/August.

HA is now cancelling both SAN flights/routes effective on or just after Thursday, March 26.

AA cut RDU, CLT and PHL to LHR as those cities were not an approved gateway by the Feds. The cut to RDU came BEFORE LHR was added to the travel ban. That was lack of demand.

Seattle is grossly over-served trans-Atlantic, and that problem is only getting worse.
Maybe Qatar with the Alaska joining oneWorld, but it's more of a question of what will be cut than added.
