    I mean, everything is full, full, full with the exception of intl. And I’m noticing more and more business travelers in the terminal. So I’d say, yeah.

    The fleet size is not the same and will never be the same size used to be. (30%smaller) Can American survive on Domestic market alone with the current cost structure? Probably yes, as long as there is a 4th stimulus on the way to bail out the airlines and pay their payroll.(68% of total revenue) Will have to wait for that one.

    Current Level of Business Travel 15%
    Trips Likely to Return after Pandemic 49%

    Percentages based upon a review of reports from government, commercial and academic sources with assessments made by a group of travel industry professionals coordinated by IdeaWorksCompany.

    1Q21
    Operating Revenue 2021 2020
    Passengers $3,179 $7,681
    Cargo 315 147
    Other 514 687

    Total Operating
    Revenue $4,008 $8,515
    Salaries, wages
    and benefits 2,730 3,219


    Low cost carriers, which don’t rely upon business travel, will focus on surviving the pandemic with the knowledge low fares will remain a very powerful attraction for consumers.

    Regional airlines and global network carriers should consider more dramatic changes to survive.

    “Dramatic” is a big word.

    They’re Betting Big!
    But in three years AA will be a right sized “Powerhouse.”
