Its the comments of first choice for the lazy or the brainwashed.
Until passengers stop flying them, AA has no incentive to change. The Oasis change might be responding to market forces. Reality is there are limited choices for travel, especially non-stop. DL seems to be atop the ratings, but I would not call any of their Y seating spacious. UA is using their hubs to push into the premium space. AA has premium cabins, smaller than most, with emphasis on lower cost / Y cabins. If they start losing paying passengers, Parker / AA will have to change, but data shows that is not happening.
What data is that? Because their more recent financial results seem to show that they are lagging their main competitors in flight revenue.
If you are specifically asking about flight revenue, that is top line and only one of many numbers that get you to bottom line profitability. As I mentioned above, AA is less premium focused with a lot of their fleet, so revenue is not going to be a leader vs the other US3.
