Why hasn't AA recanted yet on the whole OASIS mess, are the beancounters really that good at their jobs that they can ignore their customers and employees?

So now AA has 22 B767-300s. They're getting down there towards the last.


Looks like I'm going to have to find an excuse to fly AA between PHL-MIA, because that's where the 763s seem to be running, at least domestically.
2019: DAL, MCI, PHX, LAS, DFW, SAT, ORD, SLC, SEA, DTW; B73G (WN x3), B738 (WN, AA, DL), A20N (NK), MD83 (AA), B788 (AA x2), CS1 (DL), 739 (DL), 712 (DL)
Next: (TBD)

It seems like they've realized they've gone too far, if not publicly.

If I'm going to fly the equivalent to Spirit, at least give me Spirit prices. AA is losing control over their yields because no one wants to pay a premium for such a garbage product. That's fine if you have Spirit's cost structure, not so much when you're still trying to con everyone into thinking you're still a full service airline.

Clearly AA just needs to reactivate WN’s old 737-300s and WN can use the ex-AA MD-80s.

They use LUS A321s on this route? I thought they would use the newer sharklet fitted transcon A321s on PHL SEA.

The LAA A321 is based in DFW and LAX so unfortunately no.

Just curious: In such a case, what is the point of basing an aircraft at certain airports? All of these are A321-200s. The only differences are that the LUS ones have the old wingtips rather than sharklets, LUS planes use CFM56's instead of IAE V2500's, and the cabins are different. I would have thought that the maintenance crews, FA's, pilots etc at different bases would be able to use each others' planes regardless of such differences?

As I understand it, the LAA and LUS Maintenance Programs have not been integrated. Consequently the respective aircraft have to be maintained by the legacy maintenance personnel until such time as the FAA approves an integrated maintenance program.

This is correct, pilots and flight attendants can and do switch between legacy aircraft now but the maintenance programs are still separate.

Now, you do see a limited amount of LAA Airbus aircraft operating out of PHX already but later this year the LAA A321 will start operating flights to LAX and other cities out of PHL. You already see tons of LUS Airbuses in DFW and LAX and LAA 737's in PHX, CLT, and PHL though.

Not true LUS uses both CFM56s and IAE, they ordered both.

Substitutions not scheduled. Only difference is sharklets and and a cabin. And the AA ordered A321neo are based in PHX. Which was a LUS hub.

I don't think I've ever seen a LAA321 at CLT. But there's lots of LUS 321s (and 319s) out of MIA on legacy LAA routes (like MIA/ORD).

From press reports, the MAX is grounded now until mid-August.

So, basically the entire summer schedule is now toast.

I'm there quite a bit. I saw my first LAA 321 there on Saturday. For the 4 hours I was there everything else was a LUS321. I see no evidence the LAA 321 is in CLT all that much. 321 routes have tended to stay with the LUS 321 for whatever reason.

In lieu of the 737MAX yes, that wouldn't be a bad idea. That would somehow help in compensating for the MAX fleet of 24 planes that has been grounded. I'm not even sure American still wants the remaining 76 MAX airplanes.

Do you realize they are all leased and would take months to convert. The Max’s would be back in the air before the first one could ever enter the fleet and who would fly them?


Still willing to run with that statement? No MAXs until August now....

The way it's looking, AA should cancel MAX orders and take WOW's A321s. The WOW A321s are similar enough that AA could keep the WOW interiors and only add F seats, later sending them through Oasis to standardize at 190 seats.

It's up to two now, N778XF and N772XF. I believe N771XF will be the next.

No, but there's a ton of A320 pilots that could fly them. At least leasing WOW A321 makes more sense than bringing back MD-80.

Neither is going to happen, and AA is staffed for the fleet they have, not an additional 10.

Look at how long it took to get the ex-Frontier A319s in service.

They’re not going to lease the ex-WOW A321s and they’re not going to bring MD-80s back from the desert. They’re still retiring airplanes even as all this is going on so it seems like they have everything handled with the airplanes they have now.

JFK planned runway works gives AA opportunity to maintain a certain degree of schedule by shuffling JFK capacity to other hubs. Ironic when we talk about all the JFK cuts. AA is lucky to have JFK at today's situation.

After August, MAX comes back and JFK continue to shrunk, AA does not need extra aircraft. Everything is in order. Some flights get cancelled and the yield in summer peak time is up as the capacity is down. Smooth... Dougie.

The final B788, N816AA requiring the PE mod arrived at PAE tonight. Another B788, N801AC should be returning to service tomorrow (my estimate). The mod of N815AA continues in work. They are running about 10 days now for the PE mod.

JFK planned runway works gives AA opportunity to maintain a certain degree of schedule by shuffling JFK capacity to other hubs. Ironic when we talk about all the JFK cuts. AA is lucky to have JFK at today's situation.

After August, MAX comes back and JFK continue to shrunk, AA does not need extra aircraft. Everything is in order. Some flights get cancelled and the yield in summer peak time is up as the capacity is down. Smooth... Dougie.


If MAX doesn't come back in August, that's when AA leases those ex-WOW A321s. And even if MAX comes back later, AA likely to keep those A321s. Never say never.

Not going to happen. And Boeing has completed all test flights, only awaiting FAA approval for the certification flight.
