I dunno... Assuming the downgauged flights aren't at peak morning or afternoon times when the capacity is really needed, I suspect it might actually be a more pleasant experience to be on an Envoy E175 vs an AA 738.


Yeah, depends on the times of those E175 flights. When I still lived in the DC area, AA for a while did the same thing on DCA/ORD/DCA...at a couple non-peak and seemingly low-business-traveler-traffic times of the day they ran CR7's.

Hiring someone that worked for your competition for close to 20 years brings a lot of inside knowledge. While "legally" you probably can't use it, theres no way to enforce that.

I'm surprised he took the job. I believe Brian is a Canadian, I assumed he would have liked to stay in Canada with Westjet

That may not necessarily be a bad thing. The E175 is a nice ride, and more spacious in some ways than the 738s. The only downfall would be that not all E175s have in seat power, and that hot meals are no longer available in F, but then again, I find the chilled F American Eagle meals tastier and fresher than the regular mainline meals.

Oh...flights from 30 years ago that performed so poorly that they helped drive the airline to bankruptcy where they were quickly dropped and never attempted again. What a ringing endorsement.


America West was committed to the PHX market, and SYD would most definitely have worked had it been approved, and NGO service would have worked had it been nonstop and to NRT.


Yes, HP was committed to the PHX market, but long-range international flights were not going to work out of PHX. Back in those days, smaller US carriers were at a serious disadvantage because of the heavy use of travel (and most foreign travel agents were not going to book on HP, let's face it). Good grief, HP couldn't even make HNL work...and, above all else, HNL should have worked.

AA names new VP of Network/Scheduling - Brian Znotins: http://news.aa.com/news/news-details/20 ... fault.aspx

Previous VP Network from WestJet, who helped lead three hubs and establish the JV (Delta I’m assuming)

Before WestJet, he worked 17 years at United/Continental.

This sounds interesting...

This is a very curious hire. According to the release he will be reporting to Vasu Raja, who would still appear to have most of the say as far as network planning goes, so I am not sure where Znotins ultimately will fit in.

On a related note as far as United type stuff, this week AA has quietly downgraded two of the LGA-ORD roundtrips to Envoy E175s.

Especially since UA looks to be going all mainline this summer on ORD-LGA and DL already is.

AA is currently facing a plane shortage due to the 737 MAX grounding and the retirement of its MD-80's.

AA had 806 narrowbody mainline planes in service (including the 737 MAX's that were in service prior to the 737 MAX grounding) in March 2019 prior to the 737 MAX grounding whereas AA currently only has 770 narrowbody mainline planes in service (not including the 737 MAX planes that are grounded).

There will be more used 737-800's that will become available in the next 4 years with SK replacing its 737-800's with A320neos. AA might be able to pick up some used 737-800's from SK in order to address the fleet shortage that it is facing due to the 737 MAX grounding. SK's plans to replace 737NG planes with A320neos also isn't delayed by the 737 MAX grounding as SK currently doesn't have any 737 MAX planes on order.

AA might also be able to pick up some used A319 planes from DL if DL is planning on getting rid of some A319 planes once it takes delivery of some A320-200 planes.


AA is taking delivery of 20 A321NEO's this year and keeping the 757's around until end of 2021. Those, along with delaying other retirements, will see AA regain a lot of narrow body capacity this year. On top of that they're also actively searching for used A319's for the fleet. So overall AA should see an uptick in capacity this year to help makeup for the Max.

Yes indeed. Was back in the fall of 2008, I flew on one. Don't know when they started it or how long it lasted, but it was a good while; IIRC there were 2 per day each way.

Even odder when you see AA is flying things like MIAJAN and MIADSM.

Which of the following is more likely for AA for an A319/A320 replacement order: A220-300, A319neo, A320neo, or 737 MAX 7?


The A220-300 would seem to be a logical replacement for the 319, though you probably lose seats with the 223's 2+3 seating layout compared to the 3+3 in the 319; I could see the 320neo replacing the older 320s if AA wanted to go that route.
2019: DAL, MCI, PHX, LAS, DFW, SAT, ORD, SLC, SEA, DTW, PHL, MIA, LAX; B73G (WN x3), B738 (WN, AA, DL), A20N (NK), MD83 (AA), B788 (AA x2), CS1 (DL), B739 (DL), B712 (DL), B752 (AA), B763 (AA), B77W (AA), B789 (AA)

A320neo. No need to add a new fleet type with A220 or mess with the MAX 7. AA should've ordered all-A32X when they had their big order back in 2011. Wouldn't have had the 737 MAX mess which is ruining profits today.

DFW-HND/AKL/TLV
PHL-CMN
LAX-CHC
ORD-KRK/BUD/PRG

Set to cut in 2020:
MIA-COR
ORD-NRT

What I’d like to see:

DFW-BCN/HEL/ATH/KIX/NGO/TPE/BOM/DEL/CMN/BNE, possibly MEL but likely a QF route.
PHL-HEL/NRT/RAK/CPT/WAW/NAP/AGP/NAP
ORD-DBV/WAW/TXL
PHX-CDG/MAD/FRA/NRT/SYD (yes).
MIA-NRT & more secondary South America
LAX-TPE/MEL/BNE
CLT-LIS/AMS and more will likely come with the XLR.
JFK-DBV

Will these happen? Doubtful.

Expecting more 2020 expansion from AUS/BOS to compete with Delta and more South American flying to cover the LATAM loss. Good luck to AA in 2020 with the new QF JV, return to TLV, and entrance into Africa!

DL plans on operating its A220-300's in a 130-seat configuration, which is 2 more seats than AA's A319's in a 128-seat configuration.

Probably 1-2 weeks ago. Pretty confident there was at least 1 772 running the route.

It goes on and off. AA does not fly the 763 to LAX at all anymore (and the 757) so those fleet types avoid the airport. Instead sending 763s to places like LAS.

AA has very limited widebody gates at LAX and international gets priority. Not long ago (still?) they had widebody A330 to PHL and it had to remote board via hardstands and the TBIT annex gates.

772 is back I think in April?

AA has very limited widebody gates at LAX and international gets priority. Not long ago (still?) they had widebody A330 to PHL and it had to remote board via hardstands and the TBIT annex gates.

772 is back I think in April?


PHL-LAX is 788 now, temporarily. I believe it'll revert to the A332 later.

Current loaded schedule has the 772 running from 05 MAR-27 MAR, 763 running 29 MAR-06 MAY. Then 07 MAY-03 JUN 772 and 763, then back to just 772 04 JUN.

Would AA ever start LAX-LIM or SCL to compete with LATAM like they do in MIA?

Is there any chance the CRJ-900s ever make their way into ORD to upgauge CRJ700 routes and compliment the E175s, which would allow the CRJ7s to upgauge CRJ2/E145 routes from ORD? Or is AA philosophy E175 OR CRJ9 base only?

Not going to happen, ORD is Envoy, Skywest, and Republics territory. The 900s will remain out of CLT, PHL, DCA, DFW, and Phx.

Definitely not this. DFW in particular sees lots of both CR9 and E75. CLT, PHL, and I believe DCA also all see both.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

The 330 always arrived at the hardstand, but always departed from a gate in the morning, usually 48B.

How does AA board passengers in wheelchairs at a handstand?

AA boards passengers they same way they deplane them at hardstands. Just in reverse. Either push them up the ramp, or down the ramp.

The handstands for widebodies are ramps that elevate gradually.

Ive watched it board from the TBIT remote terminal, so not always.

Why not bring back some retired 757’s which were n the newer side?

AA is currently facing a plane shortage due to the 737 MAX grounding and the retirement of its MD-80's.

AA had 806 narrowbody mainline planes in service (including the 737 MAX's that were in service prior to the 737 MAX grounding) in March 2019 prior to the 737 MAX grounding whereas AA currently only has 770 narrowbody mainline planes in service (not including the 737 MAX planes that are grounded).

There will be more used 737-800's that will become available in the next 4 years with SK replacing its 737-800's with A320neos. AA might be able to pick up some used 737-800's from SK in order to address the fleet shortage that it is facing due to the 737 MAX grounding. SK's plans to replace 737NG planes with A320neos also isn't delayed by the 737 MAX grounding as SK currently doesn't have any 737 MAX planes on order.

AA might also be able to pick up some used A319 planes from DL if DL is planning on getting rid of some A319 planes once it takes delivery of some A320-200 planes.


AA is taking delivery of 20 A321NEO's this year and keeping the 757's around until end of 2021. Those, along with delaying other retirements, will see AA regain a lot of narrow body capacity this year. On top of that they're also actively searching for used A319's for the fleet. So overall AA should see an uptick in capacity this year to help makeup for the Max.

With LATAM gone, I suspect AA will return to Belo Horizonte and Santa Cruz.

If it is indeed something out of MIA, I would guess something in Brazil. CUZ has been previously rumored as well.
