AA-Oz coming?
« on: June 09, 2015, 09:24:05 AM »
AA tweeted a picture of a kangaroo saying "big news coming at 3pm est"


LAX-SYD? Finally some more award space for the route.

I wonder if they will fly out of DFW like Qantas does.

IMO It's gonna be LAX-SYD on a 77W

That's the most profitable route (highest competition as well) since most foreign tourists go there.
787-8 is either out of range or very close to it.

Hope they do, but most likely not.

Qantas's response is classic!

Qantas is cutting back it's second daily SYD-LAX (on the 747, the A380 remains daily) to 3 times a week as a result, but also re-introducing a SYD-SFO on a 747
