American Airlines Five Star Adds Blade Helicopters and LAX Private Suite Experience, Now Sells Flagship Lounge/Dining

More premium services on offer are better and American Airlines just announced several. It can be better to buy LAX private terminal access via American, in conjunction with a premium flight, than to buy it direct. Whether helicopter transfers represent a deal is more questionable. Both offerings have been done by competitors over the past two years. The more innovative piece is monetizing access to their excellent Flagship lounge and dining products, which is a nice perk for those interested...

American Explains How Their Winning Move at New York JFK is Not to Play

At an employee question and answer session with American Airlines leadership this past week American's Vice President - Planning, Vasu Raja, talked about my post about the airline's service cuts at New York JFK. He defends focusing on flying to hubs, a limited number of international destinations, and smaller cities where they have a strong customer base.

Great Business Class Award Availability to Tahiti

French Polynesia is one of the toughest awards to book, because service is limited. There aren't a lot of options for getting there, even if you're willing to connect. The major carrier is Air Tahiti Nui, which serves Los Angeles - Papeete. Air France also operates that route three times a week. United flies three days a week from San Francisco and has good award space in coach. Hawaiian flies Saturday service from Honolulu. Whether or not business class awards are possible is a yes/no propo...

American Express Airline Fee Credits Appear Not to Be Working for American Airlines Gift Cards Anymore

American Airlines Appears to Be Entering a Death Spiral at New York JFK

American today could have been a real player in New York. Instead the world's largest airline doesn't seem to know what to do - or if they should do anything at all - with the nation's most important air city. They don't serve New York JFK - Zurich. They don't serve Frankfurt. Or Munich. Or Amsterdam. Or Tel Aviv. Or.. Denver. And they keep cutting markets.

Southern Airways Express Buys Mokulele, Forming the Largest US Commuter Carrier

Though it may not fit your definition of a blockbuster merger, the announcement that will be coming out in just a few minutes that Southern Airways Express is buying Mokulele (but keeping separate brands) is actually a pretty interesting one. On the surface, this might leave you scratching your head. After all, Mokulele primarily flies in Hawai’i while Southern Airways Express flies in Pennsylvania and the Southeastern US. So, what the heck do they have in common? I spoke with Southern CEO S...

American Airlines Cancels Transatlantic Flight Due to Drunk Pilot, Everyone Entitled to Over $500 Apiece

Confronted with proof that American Airlines does, in fact, offer predeparture beverages up front a spokesperson says "Safety is our highest priority and we apologise to our customers for the disruption to their travel plans, we have rebooked them on alternative flights." I asked what was being done for customers and was told that everyone on the flight is being offered 15,000 miles. Of course that is separate from the compensation that passengers are entitled to under EU Regulation 261/2004. ...

Retirees who want to travel can make those trips more affordable by taking advantage of senior discounts and through less obvious strategies. Many of the tips offered by travel experts work just as well for anyone, regardless of age, but could be especially valuable for seniors. Among them: — When traveling by air, be flexible...

American Gets to Keep Its Authority to Fly to China — Without Actually Flying to China

There’s no Open Skies agreement between the U.S. and China. Instead a bilateral agreement lays out what route authorities can be doled out by respective governments. American Airlines dropped Chicago – Beijing and Chicago – Shanghai and Hawaiian Airlines dropped Honolulu – Beijing. American would like to keep their route authority from Chicago to China even while not using it. That would mean preventing any other U.S. airlines from adding China frequencies, which benefits American by avoiding co...
