If that's true, shame on AA.. They should ask the customers flying out of SNA. I avoid LAX AT ALL COSTS, unless I need to fly international.. Would rather fly B6 out of LGB than AA out of LAX.

From anywhere to any of these:

HKG
SYD
MEL
SIN
BKK
KUL (although I'm not sure that's in range non-stop)

LAX/SFO - KIX, ICN, HKG, TPE, SYD (yeah, I know, never gonna happen)

OMG! Not bringing up SJC again!

Give up, give up, for your own sanity, give it up!

PS SFO will likely be low on the new AA's priority list too, with so many other hubs to figure out how to deal with / rationalize / eliminate...

Many of the major tech companies are situated in the Lower Bay, and the hotels nearby are mere minutes from SJC. It may be trivial to some of you out there to drive 25 miles to your hotel/office, but I'd rather not have to do that.

And for those who don't drive, the cab expenses to the Lower Bay are incredibly high, unless you have a contract rate.

The 13:35 out of SJC to ORD allows me to grab lunch/have last minute meetings then have a leisurely short drive down to SJC with luggage in tow.

I like SJC too, and believe that its convenience factor should lead somebody (besides SW, AS) to put more of a focus there...

MIA-JNB would be a winner route. DL does ATL-JNB and it is always full.

A nonstop to HKG from LAX or ORD or DFW would be a great alternative to CX - at least to use the systemwide upgrades.... and with continuing service to KUL, which is a Malaysia Airlines base. or they could serve KUL from NRT as another option

Yes, I know. But this is a wishlist, isn't it? See thread title.

Another +1 on US-DXB or anywhere in the Gulf. Sometimes I can use RJ or the EY codeshares. QR will be a big help. But an AA flight would be great for using SWUs or other upgrades. This will also be badly needed if any new rules for elite qualification come up that require spending on AA metal.

If UA and DL can maintain non-stops to this part of the world then I don't see why AA can't.

Maine!

Any airport in Maine. Portland would be ideal. And yes, I know about the B6 partnership.

Yes, but is wishing for the same thing over and over, while always getting the same result, similar to the definition of insanity?

But, you never know... Maybe the new AA will decide to put some more weight on the Bay Area!

DFW-every international destination served by Delta from ATL:
AMS Amsterdam
ANU Antigua
AUA Aruba
BDA Bermuda
BOG Bogota
BON Bonaire
BSB Brasilia
BRU Brussels
DXB Dubai
DUB Dublin
DUS Dusseldorf
GCM Grand Cayman
JNB Johannesburg
KIN Kingston, Jamaica
LOS Lagos
MGA Managua
MAN Manchester, UK
MUC Munich
PAP Port au Prince
PUJ Punta Cana
UIO Quito
RTB Roatan
FCO Rome
UVF St. Lucia
SXM St. Martin
SAP San Pedro, Honduras
SDQ Santa Domingo
STR Stuttgart
TGU Tegucigalpa
ZRH Zurich

If you are going to have a fortress hub, do it right!

On the other hand, here is my attempt to list the destinations served by AA from DFW but not Delta from ATL:

Aguascalientes
Calgary
Chihuahua
Hermosillo
Ixtapa
Leon
Mazatlan
Morelia
Monterrey
Puebla
Queretaro
San Luis Potosi
Seoul
Torreon
Vancouver
Veracruz
Zacatecas
Many of these are high on my list of desired destinations!

Question: do cabotage laws allow AA to carry passengers from one city in Mexico to another city in Mexico? (Unlike Canada, for example.)


Thanks,

Yeah I don't know why AA hasn't attempted the JNB market yet.

In addition I would love to see:

ORD/DFW-GEG
DTW-LAX
DTW-PHX (I know we'll get this once the merger is complete)
ORD to anywhere in South America
