Like AA has a really strong European network to begin with...out of all the US majors, theirs is by far the worst.
They are paired with BA, so doesn't that make their network out of LHR (if their system actually works)?

If AA needs 33 staff at a station with just one daily flight, its no wonder they cannot make it work.
I dont get the US airline thing of opening an elaborate station for every daily flight to Europe. Outsource it, and have a small managerial presence to oversee it.
33 people is not that much when you have to turn a large jet: Rampers, Baggage Handlers, Desk and Gate Clerks, to cover activity and have people there late to cover lost bags etc.
