Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2019

No one can make it work except JetBlue? Why would you think so? Because JB is now the only carrier on the route? AA was on this route for well over 20 years and competed quite well against PanAm and the then BWIA during much of this time period. If it couldn't make it work, it would have left a lot...

Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2019

I do not understand how AA can have a daily JFK-GND flight and could not maintain JFK-BGI. How is this possible? I remember the days when PanAM and AA plied the JFK-BGI route daily. AA doesn’t have a daily JFK-GND flight; B6 does. AA flies daily from MIA and weekly from CLT to GND. Furthermore, no ...

Re: AA botches launch of JFK-GEO

These flights were always scheduled for the 738 even when the MAX was available. JFK-GEO was announced in May. The MAX grounding began in March. Mind you, they would’ve expected the MAX back in December at the time they announced so they could’ve scheduled it that way but still something to take in...

Re: Caribbean Aviation Thread - 2019

Clearly AA underestimated that route. Nothing less than a 757 should be used, particularly during the Christmas, Easter and summer peak periods. I think it’s just a case of AA simply not having enough 757s to go around. IIRC, JFK only sees the 757 on AA out of DFW once daily now. Doesn’t AA have an...

Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

Simply pathetic! Millions of dollars illegally pass through US borders and the bozos in US customs feeling proud to catch $22K? It's not that those FAs had $1M with them or trafficking cocaine or something! They probably took a few iPhone 11s to Chile and sold for a small profit. Everybody does tha...

Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

The amounts are all different. If they were trying to launder money in as a group. I would think they would all be equally splitting the cash. Seems weird to have one guy carrying 9k, another 7300, and another 6371. As individuals they were not required to declare any of this cash. As a household t...

Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

You are absolutely required to declare any amount over 10k. It doesn't mean you can't bring it in, you just have to make it known you have it.

Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

You arent required to declare money over 10k to customs agents. Him changing his declaration set this off. Will have to see what evidence, if any, they can uncover this is illegally laundered money. Being in possession of $9000 in cash does not make it illegal. To me this stinks of civil forfeiture...
