And competing with SA and UA (EWR-CPT) from JFK. JFK may well be a hub, but will only offer connections to 27 destinations in the US and Canada, while MIA, for example, will offer 62. If they need connections, then JFK is not the hub for AA. It's why AA offer significant fewer long haul destinations from JFK (about 9) than its other hubs (for example, PHL has 17).
If there is any US cities that can support 3 or more international carriers competing in the same long haul route, NYC and LAX must be two of them.
