    American will cut routes to focus on more profitable flights.


    * Delta: The airline's shares are down more than 7 percent this year, but analysts are hopeful that the carrier will increase its adjusted quarterly profit by 11 percent. The airline's executives will likely address the timing of its Airbus A220 planes. Delta has said it expects them to be in service by early 2019.

    * United: Far and away, United is the winner among airline stocks this year. Shares are up more than 23 percent in 2018. Contract negotiations with their unionized pilots runs through January 2019. A sore subject with mainline pilots would be if United plans to grow by outsourcing more flights to smaller, regional carriers.

    * American: Shares of the world's largest airline are struggling more than any other U.S. carrier. American's stock price is down more than 30 percent so far this year. According to analysts investors will focus on where else American will scale back flying to cut costs. CEO Doug Parker in January said that airfares are "too low for oil prices this high."

    How funny...
    Delta Revenue Jumps, Offsetting Fuel Costs.

    A jump in revenue during the third quarter nearly offset a surge in jet-fuel prices that is battering U.S. carriers. The No. 2 U.S. carrier by traffic said an 8% rise in revenue was driven by strong demand and surging premium ticket sales, helping overcome higher fuel costs and disruption from Hurricane Florence in September.

    AAS’s CEO may make all the excuses he can, fuel price, Hurricane....., but the truth is its poor management reflected in its sliding stock price occurred well before these factors surfaced. That means, fuel price and hurricane are only used as an excuse to hide incompetence. No new ideas how to survive in competition, let alone lead the company to a thriving path like Delta and United.
    I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

    Delta gains revenue from an increase in premium ticket sales.......

    wonder why, maybe because AA is getting away from the premium seats and unwisely focusing on basic economy seats. Thanks AA for pushing your business customers over to Delta where they will experience a better product and better customer service. In return keep all the business with Delta.

    Word of mouth is big in any business and the words about AA isn't positive. This will have a long lasting effect on AA revenue.

    Before the usual suspects chime in, biggest (for now) doesn’t always mean better or best.

    Valid concerns and a demonstration that AA's value is deteriorating along with investor (and analyst) confidence. I think asking Dacuj about this though is way above his intellectual pay grade. He will just pull that string in his back and belch more "flow-thru" nonsense and how new pilots are lined up down to Waco to get to AA via Envoy. He's a one-trick pony and his only trick has become boring.

    Also remember this is a service-oriented business like it or not and Delta's service professionals have been inspired to excel instead of alienated to do the minimum required. That's an inevitable byproduct of a positive culture vs. a negative one. If only you could produce Delta's product on AA's budget and culture, but IMO you can't. You have to pick (and accept) one or the other. It would appear it's AAG's belief that its apparent present path of doing a little bit of everything, yet excelling at nothing is the key to maximum profit and shareholder value, but clearly the market disagrees.
