I am pretty sure about this. I think they will have reconsider to TLV. Probably not for a while.

Unfortunately not, I don't think returns to TLV anytime soon. I don't think they coming back.

AA cannot operate into TLV and avoid addressing this issue.

I think post merger AA can do well in TLV operating ORD-TLV rather than PHL-TLV.
Yes, former TWA employees never got pay it back. That's big problem. They losing the money and they couldn't have enough profitability.

I do not think they ever returns to TLV. They won't be back to TLV for a long time. They will seized the plane.

No, actually, it's 2021. They will open it up in 2021 or so.
