Line of thinking is probably is that if the crossover crashes the entire system then they have less people than normal to rebook and consequently more slack in the fleet to recover with if it really goes bad.
Then if it goes without a hitch then any lost revenue will be counted as a cost of the merger.

It was reported that several hundred flights were cancelled months ago to lighten the load during the transition if anything were to go crazy.
|Quoting afcjets (Reply 10):|
Makes sense, there are usually two redeyes LAX-CLT but none tonight, perhaps it is too close to 10p PT / midnight DFW time. I still thought there might be a reason why they couldn't handle departures that close to flipping the switch versus just an insurance policy.

My feeling is this may just be one of the smoothest transitions the industry has seen... at least, all faith.

Gee, you really think so?

I noticed this several months ago and asked if anyone knew why and no on answered. Why is neither AA or US operating redeyes tonight and tomorrow night in certain LUS markets including LAX-CLT.
|Quoting a380787 (Reply 14):|
Strictly speaking, the smoothest was when WN absorbed AirTran by simply adding WN flights and removing FL flights over time ... all without any single-day system conversions.

Did the flight crews change uniforms in the air?

Quoting BN727227Ultra (Reply 27):
AA2349 ORD-DFW was three hours late Friday night, wonder if that had anything to do with the conversion? The arriving flight from NRT was close to on time...
That would have nothing to do with the res cutover, since that is a LAA flight.

Did the UA/CO cutover and mess that followed only affect only one of the legacy's airlines routes?
