Is that an actual reliable source? An AA rep? I'm sure BNE is in AA's plans. When that happens though? Who knows.
Everything so far is speculation and other sources are saying BNE is not in AA's immediate plans.
So far it sounds like LAX-MEL and more AKL service are the two main rumours from what is apparently fairly reliable sources.
With the Aus-US market under capacity and yields pressure I would be surprised if too much more is going to be added in the short term. Perhaps once this all falls into play I'm sure there will be a few net gains in frequencies and capacity but we aren't talking an additional 3 daily flights off the mark. Market would not handle it.
I don't know who the rep was I just heard it through another person. It should be reasonably reliable considering it came directly from the airline.
