    "Isn't it interesting how a bankrupt company can keep operating. Sadly, the same could have been the case with GM and we would not have been ripped off for Billions."

    That wasn't the case with GM - they were to the point that liquidation was the only option out there. There was not one source of private capital that would have lent them them money to stay afloat. AA is in a different situation, and has the cash on hand to continue operations while they restructure.

    "Article doesn't mention what aircraft they'll use - I wouldn't be surprised to learn they bought a couple of extra long range jungle jets for this one crammed in one more row of seats, and let Eagle fly it for them."

    Press release from RDU says they'll use a 737-800.

    Looking forward to AA emerging from bankruptcy, hopefully with their work force back in good spirits, and most of their planes maintained in the USA. Have not seen if they are going to join all the other carriers and get the work done south of the border or not. Based on what I have seen they will maintain a significant maintenance staff in the Good Ole USA.

    Who in their right mind would want to fly to LA. I have absolutly no earthly desire to visit that state for any reason.I would rather kiss my mother-in-law on the mouth, and you don't know how much that hurts & scares me to say that. pappybigtuna

    Oh, I am certain that the populace of California is just all choked up over that statement. You don't have to kiss your mother in law sugar! Just keep kissing your sister and your dog like you normally do and everything will be just fine!

    I've lived in San Diego and San Francisco bay area. California is a great state to be connected to.

    LA is awesome. Lots to do and see there and its not far from San Diego. There is all the wine country not far, Santa Monica pier, Beverly Hills, The Reagan Library in Simi Valley, plus explore things like Death Valley, or Kings Canyon and see giant Sequoia's. ... awesome places.

    pappybigtuna, fwt? My family lives there. There are a million reasons to visit California. How empty and shallow you must be to say there is no reason to visit California.
