My guess is that they follow what other airlines are doing and will announce seat blocking until January soon. That's what they have done all along. Reality is they aren't hitting that seat cap on...

To be fair as someone who flew aa exclusively for a while, preferred seats on aa is just a regular seat. Having the ability to select that seat never did anything for me. And for gold, waiting until...

Given the current valuation, it definitely seems crazy to have paid $2.6 billion for VX's assets.
