If a slot waiver is still under negotiation, you can bet it's mostly about the SLOTS. AA (and others) do not want to do anything to jeopardize those valuable slots. If a waiver is granted, you can...

Well, I think DL already serves more p2p (or focus city to leisure market) services than AA or UA. And bear in mind that many of the p2p routes that UA/AA announced are less than daily/Sat only...

I am a lover of chocolate chip cookies, but most of the time I find Doubletree's not to my liking. On occasion, they are fresh and warm which makes them okay-tasting. I certinaly wouldn't stay at a...

Really? Most Americans I know have to take of their "challenge" children at home. They can't afford to send them to a "home".

I will take a contrary opinion. In the mid/late 90's, CVG was excellent for connections from the Midwest to smaller markets in the South. For example, I lived in CMH and has relatives near TYS. Just...

IMHO, as a former AA employee and understand the network aspects, LAX-HNL will always be there. The next possibility will be PHX-HNL (simply because it can be operated with A321neo), and then a...

That's not true. AA is currently running a 789 DFW-HNL and also a nonstop from PHX-HNL (albeit a narrow body 321neo). This is why I suggested the DFW-HNL option to the OP.

Agreed and time will tell...we shall see in two weeks or so. 99.99% of the population is medically able to wear a mask. The others need to have groceries delivered or someone shop for them.

The above schedule is to be loaded on Saturday night (tomorrow night). What is in there today may not be correct. I would check your flights again on Sunday afternoon to make sure they still exist.
