Our airline status, and when and whether or not AA decides to extend it, is not the biggest deal in the world. It's not the biggest deal in anyone's...

Be aware that, for lounge access purposes, "International" on AA does not include Canada, Mexico (except Mexico City), Bermuda, or the Caribbean. I imagine it will be similar for AS.

I don't know that a ban on ALL stock buybacks EVER is necessary or effective. There may be some warranted regulation around it, especially for an industry that is so prone to catastrophe in a...

I don't think it will be long before some major airports begin shutting down, not as a concession to economic/financial realities, but as part of a containment stratregy.

I don't know if there is a protocol, but I've noticed that some FA's offer it proactively, while others don't. If they don't offer it, I ask politely. I've never had them deny it.
