Re: AA Adds New Routes

Good adds for AA - these all make a lot of sense and should perform well. I think the following domestic routes would also play to AA's strengths and round out their network: PHX-COS PHX-XNA PHX-MSY PHX-BNA DFW-CAK DFW-CRW DFW-PVD It would also be nice to see LAX-PIT come back.
