AA's rumored to "partially take over" LAX-BNE, would be a good move to allow Qantas aircraft to fly elsewhere. Though... DFW-BNE, anyone?
the elsewhere. If you are not sending the most capacity you can spare to LAX, there is not a point in offering a global network. The same obviously applies to NYC & LHR.
AA may attempt to add
that, but QF are in no place to cut frequency. It is not even clear that QF will halt the JFK runs once their non-stoppers commence.
As well, the MX center at LAX/WAMA that QF just built
serves a vital function in that network. Taking traffic away from that would be a pretty stunning misuse of resources, considering the cost to put that there.
I do not know where people get this notion, but not every frequency upgrade/add at AA needs to come at the expense of the OW Betters. It is not even historically the case that that happens with any notable frequency.
This may be splitting hairs but LAX-BNE is not really a ULH, the tweet does mention ULH.
No, you are correct. That is true. But from a media standpoint, I would not expect them to make that distinction.
I do not see anything that specifically calls out Australia in this link.
This is throwing darts at a wall, but looking at all the pieces (not many), the most probable possibility is DFW-DEL. 789, AA metal... plastic.
