Thanks for the added info. I'm not up to date on the Wright Amendment expiration. I know it's a big issue for the folks down there and noticed AA DFW ground crew wearing t-shirts about the...

I'm a little peeved about this one, as I was looking forward to traveling this route and using some VIPs on a reconfigured 763 on a long, long flight. Of course AA really doesn't care about my...

DAL-ORD rears its ugly head

I'm really puzzled by this addition. I'm one of the lucky ones who was able to take advantage of DAL service during that freakish period when it was all first class service to/from ORD to compete...

I understand that an idle plane isn't making money, but flying half full planes on Tuesday and Wednesdays actively loses money. I've looked at flight frequencies, and I don't see a difference...

Why not change the scheduling methodology?

Here's one thing that I never understood about the airlines, American included. They fly the same routes/times M-F. Us road warriors know well that M, Th, F are high capacity days vs. T/W. Why not...

Amen. I couldn't agree more. I flew >100k last year and really can't complain about my experiences... of course a delay here and there, but that should be expected in bad weather. I guess some...

Maybe I'm just getting old, but if it's work, then there's no question at all given your example and time spent going to/from. After putting in a long day of work, I cannot drive hours like that...

I agree to an extent, but come on, oil above $130? They've got to do something. I would have preferred to just raise fares as it's far easier to implement. If it costs more, charge more. The...

I don't know about you, but when I'm going on vacation, I want to relax and driving 13 hours and arriving at my destination tired is NOT my idea of vacation. I'd much rather put in a long day of...

I agree. Why not take control of the situation and just go to The Container Store or something like that and get little travel containers for a total of about $6...?

Not a fan of ATL...

- separate security, avoiding the cattle call
- all...

ORD impact?

Other than the ORD-FCO off-season cancellation in this latest reduction, does anyone know of other ORD impacts? I'm trying to find some more info out there, but to no avail.

Thanks for the DFW...

Let's not forget Legend! What a brilliant business plan that was, too. I didn't mind the LOV-ORD F service, but who can run a business with an entire fleet like that... and only serving LAX, ORD...

why are we debating this?

Seriously. I've spent a weekend in Paris and Chile in the past just to qualify. If you're going to continue to fly, it's DEFINITELY worth it. Not to mention, even if you're not going to fly much...

Don't bother

Once you reach 100k, there's no use going for more. It's kind of like winning the gold medal. Sure, you can *try* to get Concierge level, but that's invite only, and there's no point in going out...

Agreed

I read the article and tended to agree with the analysis, and in particular loved the story about the Spirit CEO's email. I also loved the fact that the CEO didn't substantively back down from what...

PDX loss

Well, I thought being based out of ORD would secure a nonstop on AA to PDX, but that's not going to be the case in a few weeks, either. It's disappointing.

There still are some decent mainline...

good tip

I'm 800 miles away from EXP, and work has decided to keep me home for the rest of the year. Sure enough, $110 RT, go there and coming back on the same plane. I'm a small guy, so the RJs don't...

TWA herring

Acquired b/c of your loyalty to TWA? If I may ask, what city are you out of, and if TWA disintegrated, who would you have flown? (All conjecture, I realize, but there are other threads that spend...

Good point. AA's last successful strategy involving an outright purchase or acquisition seems to be their Latin American route network resulting from Eastern's demise. Reno Air and TWA... not so...

Yup. Wrote this before taking a well needed nap. It should read:

Of course, I understand that forecasting decades into the...
