Nobody in this thread is saying that they are. What is being said is that AA has considerably fewer flights than slots at the moment, and they are slot squatting on even more with RJ flights to random cities that could be served by LGA for local traffic or PHL for Euro-connections.
For a while they received a waiver on their slots' "use it or lose it" clause due to the JFK runway renovations. They may receive a temporary waiver while the MAX is out of service, but don't expect PANYNJ to allow that for too long, especially if they start looking at %age of each hub's flights AA axed due to the MAX (JFK would be 1st or 2nd). At some point AA either needs to add a bunch of flights back or sell/lease the slots they are not currently using.
