I'm well aware that DOJ approval is required, hence why I said that AS might only be able to get rid of the slots for free. While I am sure that AA would love to pay for them, the only option that...

My expectation is that the two DAL gates are going to be used to fly to SFO/LAX/PDX/SEA. As much as I hope that AS keeps DCA-DAL, I don't think the route makes a lot of sense for AS.

I think the biggest reason why UA implemented spend requirements is that elites get complementary domestic upgrades which UA has been increasingly selling at check-in.

I think AA has a target number of elites at each level that they want. If they need DEQM to fill these targets, they offer DEQM. With the US merger, newAA if anything, probably has too many elites,...

My comment is in response to supposed divestments at LGA. SFO was gutted in an era when AA had highest in the industry costs. LGA and DCA are both slot controlled and subject to much more limited...

As to the first point, devaluations are generally inevitable. But, I don't think the taxes and fees are going anywhere, and there are already a lot of incentives to get EC members to redeem on BA...

In this case, win or lose, I don't expect Avios will change. This is a question of false advertising. BA has already changed their language, so this case is only about whether BA has to pay for its...

I agree with you that new AA will fly to more than OW hubs. Any flight that has sufficient O/D demand out of JFK/ORD/any other hub will have a flight, because no one wants to fly JFK-LHR-CDG or...

Whether BA or AA has the better FFP is highly debatable, and depends on where you are located, what types of tickets you buy, and what types of redemptions you want.

Moreover, on both BA and AA,...

Airlines don't divest airports for the just for the hell of it. Why would AA divest from the airport with some of the most lucrative O/D traffic in the country? LGA is an O/D airport. Like DCA, it...

I could be wrong, but I believe that there is a lot of business travel to MAN and DUS. And for GLA, that's a mighty long backtrack to fly to Germany first.

And as to TXL and MXP, I'm not saying...

But why would AA want to sell tickets XXX-PHL-ATH, when I can sell codeshare tickets on BA for XXX-LHR-ATH.

The number of U.S. cities that have 1-stop access to much of Europe on BA is very large.

This merger is about making money for the airline; not saving the consumer money.

AA will probably fly LGA-PHL with a few flights, but I would not consider it a guarantee. There is very little demand for travel LGA-PHL. Most of the demand served by the flights you mention is...

There is simply no way that newAA dehubs LAX. LAX gets a lot of OW connecting traffic, and so it will have to stay a hub. What may change is that it may become a little more difficult to get to...

As BA's route structure can attest to, there is a lot of demand for Random US City - LHR/Connection. With AA/BA's ATI, I think the only question is whether the flight is an AA flight or a BA flight.

Lifetime Gold is lifetime at the 25k level. Whatever AA calls everything, they will keep it so that the lifetime golds don't get any improved benefits. If they are really concerned about "lifetime...
