It would only be an exact comparison if AA's policy was "black people aren't allowed on planes, but our flight attendants aren't going to enforce the rule." Obviously, that would be illegal and...

As quoted from aa.com above, that is literally the opposite of AA's Covid policy. AA explicitly allows seat switching unless there are weight and balance issues.

Maybe, but at a minimum AA's website doesn't make it clear that this is not allowed and a reasonable person might read that it is be allowed. If the passenger really complied when he was asked to...

If it's really the case that of the six people that didn't fly, the two white people got hotel vouchers and the four black people did not, that starts to look a lot like a racial disparity regardless...

Airlines need to be clear in setting expectations about what the in-flight experience will be. United, in particular, made some clear statements about blocking middle seats and then decided that as...

The whole point of the valves is to allow for unimpeded airflow, so even a poorly fitted cloth mask is doing more for the people around you than a perfectly fit fancy N95 mask with a valve.

That's all true, but when someone asks "I thought cloth masks didn't protect the wearer" to say "they provide more protection than N95 masks with one-way valves" is just not correct. You correctly...

If you actually read the study, the "gap" that is being referred to in the "N95 with gap" are holes that the researches intentionally drilled into the N95 masks to understand the effect of leakage,...

That is not very good advice, since even a cursory reading of this thread will reveal that the lowest friction way to get a refund from AA is to request it on the website.

Having said that, AA is...

That's a bold statement backed by no evidence whatsoever.

I agree that closing the account is fair and serves a useful purpose in terms of sending a message, but it's totally possible that some of...

I don't understand this. No one ever forces you to buy the codeshare if you prefer the partner-marketed flight, so what's the harm?

Why not? I keep cash around assuming several months' worth of expenses in case I lose my income, and that's pretty standard "Financial Planning 101" for normal humans. And the overall trend in...

Sure, but the benefits of the buybacks are not evenly distributed across the economy, and the cost of a bailout is.

The car industry bailout probably serves as a pretty good model for what ought...

Why would the ground transfer from LGA to JFK possibly be better than transiting at BOS instead? Even though you're going out of your way, I'd imagine that a connection at ORD is probably faster...

Probably. It sounds like they're incorporating this into the fare rules, so it should apply regardless of what channel you purchase it through. It would be good to look at the detailed fare rules...

Probably correct. UK APD won't apply since the itinerary originates in France, so it makes sense that the French one would instead. It's better for you that it works the way it does since French...

Presumably there's going to be an AS code on the flight as well, which should help a lot.

Edited to add: it looks like AS does 15 flights a day between LAX and SEA--all mainline--so it seems like...

For 2019 as a whole, AA is definitely the worst of any domestic airline. They are dead last in four out of seven operational categories, and in the bottom half of every single one. In some categories...

The AA 789 hard product is very good. I'd vote better than Qantas, but different people might have different opinions about this. The food is medium--not really different from any other AA business...
