It's a short term blip, everything will be back to normal by the time you fly on just about any trip you book today or tomorrow. There is the potential for the layoffs to have an impact around x-mas if they don't manage the training bubble properly.
thought I read somewhere that usair was trying to buy aa..??? not heard anymore about it lately but I know when usair merged with america west they were required by america west to "slimdown" like AW which was in the black and now usair is also in the black and doing very well......seems like a good deal for aa....????
we actually got a call, Saturday night, from American Airlines, telling us, that our flight would leave St.Louis 30minutes later(6:30am,instead of 6am), and that our return flight, we would get back at 1035pm, instead of the 830ish time. They must of canceled one of the flights from Mia to St.louis, so we got pushed to the last flight!
It was weird, getting a cal lfrom them, but i guess, since we purchased our trip through them, they are responsible for it.
AA is back on schedule as the pilots seem to be ready to accept the terms of the new company proposal. All other work groups were on board months ago. Remember every major airline has been through bankruptcy while AA held out to see if they could work it out on their own. Things are looking better for most of the airlines now.
