CRM is important, not Billy Bob Captain riding a Saab like a cowboy with his own set of callouts, etc. On the other side, some new hire on day one on the Saab struggling with callouts and flows saying, "Hell, this isn't the way we flew the Baron at Circle X Oil."

    Today's pipeline CFIs are trained from day one on the proper procedures, callouts, flows and being an equal part of the cockpit equation. I guarantee you they are ONE HUNDRED PERCENT more valuable than Billy Bob or his ex-Baron FO above. Envoy is getting the best and brightest and they are that way because they are trained correctly. After all, ol' Billy Bob don't wanna flow no way so if you can't purge his a** from the Envoy seniority list, that pipeline candidate dam sure belongs in front of him for the flow to American Airlines.
    You truly are an imbecile. Standardization was in place back in the 1980's when I arrived at Eagle. So were callouts, checklists and CRM. Considering you were still soiling yourself back then, I can understand your ignorance. The difference is back then pilots had to adapt and learn while learning a new aircraft as opposed to the luxury of pre-feeding at the Cessna 172 level. Those pilots also brought real world weather experiece as opposed to theory, resourcefulness in staying alive and much stronger ability in more complex, high workload cockpits as opposed to nodding off in the traffic pattern on sunny days in simple aircraft.

    I realize this is WAY over your head becaue YOU are way over your head.

    "American Airlines is letting down its employees, shareholders, and customers".

    Absolutely. You can't take care of the customers unless you take care of the employees and if you don't take care of those customers, the shareholders are hosed. It will take A LOT more than a "mission statement" to take care of the employees. It will require a complete and total overhaul of how this (again) failing airline has been run for decades. Without that, the future is destined to mimic the past, mission statement or not. How many slogans and mission statments have been adopted over the decades with little to show for them except the puffed out cheeks and bloated bellies of management squirrels?

    Finally some decent news

    American Airlines Solidifies Leadership Position in Miami and Adds New Nonstop Boston to
    London Service
    Monday, September 30, 2019, 8:00 AM
    Download PDF (English) PDF Format (opens in new window)
    American continues to expand footprint into Latin America and across the Atlantic

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Whether across the pond or across the equator, American Airlines continues to strengthen its network to give customers more travel options than ever before. Today American announced plans to grow its international network with new and increased service:

    Increased service from Miami (MIA) to:
    Lima, Peru (LIM), beginning April 7
    Santiago, Chile (SCL), beginning winter 2020
    São Paulo(GRU), beginning winter 2020
    New daily service from Boston (BOS) to London Heathrow (LHR) beginning March 29
    Extended service to key European destinations including Rome (FCO), Dublin (DUB) and Barcelona, Spain (BCN)
    All new routes are subject to government approval. Flights will be available for purchase Oct. 7, with the exception of GRU and SCL, which will be available for purchase in December.

    New opportunities in Latin America
    This year, American celebrates 30 years serving MIA, and now has even more to celebrate with additional service to LIM, SCL and GRU set to begin next year.

    "American's leading position in Miami is something we're incredibly proud of and committed to maintaining," said Vasu Raja, American's Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. "We have so many possibilities from our Latin American gateway and are excited for the opportunity to use our domestic strength to enhance our international network. We'll continue to grow, compete and thrive in a region of the world where we have a
    long history
    and a bright future."

    "American Airlines is Miami's hometown airline and we appreciate their dedication to Miami-Dade County with more flight options for local residents to see the world, and more opportunities to welcome customers to our great county," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez.

    American currently operates two daily flights to LIM from MIA, and next spring the airline will increase operations year-round to three times a day on a Boeing 757, providing more service than any other carrier to one of South America's largest cities. And next winter gets even warmer with an additional
    flight to
    Chile's capital, Santiago, and a third
    flight to
    Brazil's largest city, São
    Paulo
    . Both services will be operated on a 777-200.

    The best schedule in Boston
    When new American nonstop service from BOS to LHR launches next year, customers will have access to a total of five daily flights to choose from between American and joint business partner British Airways.

    "Our new nonstop flight, combined with the service provided by our Atlantic Joint Business, gives customers the most robust schedule and the most premium seats between Boston and London," Raja continued. "Boston customers have been asking for more service and we're delivering with this new flight, and our recently announced seasonal service to Nassau and Grand Cayman."

    American's BOS to
    LHR flight
    will be flown on a state-of-the-art 777-200, featuring 37 Flagship Business seats and 24 Premium Economy seats. The new flight fits into the current
    British Airways
    schedule with a peak evening departure (American Flight No. 108) from BOS and adds a new morning departure from LHR (American Flight No. 109). American and British Airways will have the most flights between the two historic cities when flights begin next year. Together, American and British Airways provide up to 71 flights every day between the U.S. and London.

    And there's more good news for customers flying out of Boston, as International Airline Group (IAG) subsidiary LEVEL will operate three weekly flights from BOS to Paris Orly Airport (ORY) beginning March 31. The Atlantic Joint Business continues to build a bigger and better network next summer by adding an additional 125,000 seats per month across the Atlantic with six new routes, in addition to the 12 routes already launched this year.

    The new flight comes at an optimal time to build on the investments American has made at BOS this year. In January the airline co-located all mainline operations to a renovated portion of the B terminal so that customers have access to one main ticket lobby, a new
    baggage
    claim facility and a newly renovated Admirals Club, particularly welcomed by the airline's international Flagship travelers. In addition, in June, American and Massport unveiled the new Terminal B Great Hall, offering customers more convenience and increased efficiency at the ticket counter and security.

    Summer comes early
    American is also extending seasonal flying dates on some of the most popular routes including service between New York (JFK) and Rome (FCO); Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Dublin (DUB); and Chicago (ORD) and Barcelona (BCN). These routes will now operate a month longer than their current schedule. Stay tuned for more seasonal extensions in the coming weeks.

    Route Previous season New season 2020
    JFK–FCO May 3–Oct. 27 March 29–Oct. 23
    DFW–DUB June 6–Oct. 27 May 7–Oct. 23
    ORD–BCN May 3–Oct. 27 April 6–Oct. 23

    Two different points-of-view above.

    The first is from................well apparently, AA(news.aa.com). Not surprising that they see new routes as positive. Of course, their plan all along has been to reallocate aircraft from unprofitable or marginally profitable routes to ones that will hopefully be more profitable, so nothing earth-shaking here IMO. The second is from...........well, the customers. Apparently, all is not well there. However, in that article the author mostly talks about comfort and toys as opposed to the human service deficiencies that make or break the product. The CFO also completely misses the problem, so what does one take away from both information sources? Don't know about anyone else, but the common denominator I see is......well, little change as a result of well........no change. It appears the plan is still to "harmonize" the old AA closer to that of the New US Airways with cramped seats, minimum frills and disgruntled employees.

    I guess all that's really important is to pump up the stats and once the MAX's are back and the mechanics are placated (a tall order), all will be well. I'm not convinced.
