Re: AS & AA Seperation (Essentially) Coming March 1, 2020

You can be dismissive and post a bunch of data to make yourself look smart but you know as well as I do PDEW isn’t the official barometer here as it doesn’t take into account the competition on the route or the connecting passengers on the plane. Lots of people can fly to an airport but if there ar...

Re: AS & AA Seperation (Essentially) Coming March 1, 2020

I keep beating the dead horse, but AS still has better financials than AA/US/DL. My read on the market is there is room for a carrier like AS and they are doing what niche carriers do successfully. Don’t worry. You’ll be ignored. Folks on here want to paint a picture of a dying airline that isn’t m...

Interesting how an airline is both adding and cutting routes, but only the reductions are noted as to paint a picture of despair to fit their narrative.
