And those of us who had the misfortune of not figuring it out ended up buying those tickets (like via our corporate travel booking sites) without realizing what we were getting, or rather weren't...

No argument here, in fact that's partly my point... AS is trying to compete with the Q400 against others with mainline aircraft or E175/CRJ7 at worst. We'll just have to see what this year brings....

One definitely was AS' fault (mechanical issue delayed inbound aircraft), two I'm not really clear on what happened, and the fourth, while the root cause was not their fault, the crew communication...

I qualified MVPG in 2017, but ended up a little shy of MVP by the end of 2018, so I booked a mileage run and brought along a friend on my Visa companion fare. AS performed so abysmally that my friend...

Over the last year it has been well under 50% for me. I would never turn down chocolate but am never inclined to ask - partly because it makes me feel entitled, indiscreet, cheap, etc., and also...

I booked an AS award on AA metal, and called yesterday to change the date. I could see on the website that only F was available for my desired date/flights, but the agent on the phone kept saying...

I went to see if I got anything, and found that the site is throwing an error whenever I try to view my profile, discount codes, mileage activity, etc.

I'm sure it's just a temporary site problem,...

"The main reason we are able to fly our schedule on time is not so much that we've recovered but that we have less flying on our plate," [CEO Campbell] said.

There you have it. They have fewer...

I guess I am in the not-quite-cattle category too; the past two years I have hustled a bit to make MVPG, as business travel has been feast-or-famine and unpredictable. The QX flight cancellations...

At the risk of being extremely pedantic, a "type rating" is what a pilot holds; a "type certificate" is issued to an aircraft.

But on a related note, I am sure that's why many QX new hires want to...

I read it as "how have the QX cancellations affected your future plans and/or loyalty to AS?" OP, please correct if I am wrong. Makes sense to me to have a thread for that specifically, and the other...

EUG also has 8 departures now, but almost certainly had more before the current round of QX misery. Anyone know an easy way to look up historic timetables?

MFR might have more than EUG currently,...

I wouldn't care, apart from an irrational prejudice for QX as somehow more "homegrown" than OO, but that has nothing to do with anything. And I have no insider knowledge, but if I were AS, I would...

Got upgraded on a SEA-SMF Skywest E175 last week; I was impressed they managed a full meal service in F on that flight (only about 90 minutes). It's like another world compared to the Q400; with all...

If it has been fixed, it must have been in the last week or two... I flew on a pure AA trip a couple of weeks ago, and for both of the two segments outbound I was in group 6.

+1 to the Q400 being far better than the CRJ200 - particularly for those of us north of 6 feet. UA does have 737 and Airbus service year round to SFO now, but ironically you'll have less legroom than...

You're right, EUG-SJC is what I was thinking of. If I remember right, that one was even operated with an E175 for one brief shining moment.
