Re: AA Reports First-Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Didn't say the same size, said no hub closing and no reducing one hub significantly over others. Other then the already announced fleet retirements it will essentially be status quo. There will certainly have to be some adjustments as retired fleets effected some hubs more.
