For one thing, having the ability to just go "nah, I'm not doing this trip" and keeping the fare value for a year from ticket purchase, no penalty, instead of just having to throw cash away or pay...

I think there is literally no reason to go SEA/SFO/LAS-LAX/-JFK on B6 unless you're a crazy FTer trying to ramp up RDM/EQM (and B6 isn't an airline you can do that on anyway), or you're trying to...

In the same way setting bundles of dollar bills on fire would be... for everyone but AS.

AS used to serve LGB, they dropped out. It was a nice way to get to Disneyland.

I don’t generally find it so on my routes, but even if that were true, that indicates pricing power if you’re talking about routes with multiple competitors. WN makes money (and unlike the...

They've been cutting LGB since way before they started a move to LAX. It just hasn't worked for them.

To give you an idea about why shorthaul at LAX may not be a winner for B6... let's try WN. One...

Nobody is going to be flying B6 to connect at LAX for shorthaul to someplace like SEA or LAS when they can take the nonstop out of JFK/BOS/FLL, unless there are big price breaks. If B6 has to...

An E75 with full size luggage bins, and no middle seats plus an F cabin is pretty much the best “downgrade” ever for an hour flight. Don’t make it sound like it’s some CRJ200.

It's not AS's systems. It's CX that's only making the segment available as married. If CX made HKG-ZRH available by itself you would be fine.

You realistically don't have to decide in 2020 since all status will be rolled over to 2021. So why pick a pig in a poke when you don't know what AS is going to offer their elites as AA pax yet?

Ask nice if they can put it on one PNR/ticket due to HKG transit coronavirus restrictions (where they will not allow transit on multiple PNRs)?
