American Airlines’ Big Mistake…


Once again I find myself quoting from Gary who writes View From The Wing, but I once again agree with him on the mistake American Airlines is making…

American Airlines Boeing 767 Business Class is a good product and coach is spacious (with 31-32 inch pitch) as they haven’t densified the cabin. The 2-3-2 configuration in Economy means that there are very few middle seats.

The mistake is that American has decided to retire its 767s, to be used as cargo planes, even though these planes are perfect for transcontinental flights and transatlantic flights or Hawaii routes. They are replacing these planes with 787’s.

With fuel prices dropping these planes aren’t outrageous to operate in fuel and if American invested in them, like Delta does with older planes, they would attract premium business on domestic routes JUST LIKE DELTA DOES. Instead, American Airlines continues to make bad management decisions, continue to densifying planes and continue to squeeze every last drop of joy out of flying on their airline.
