American Airlines

Just wondering - no reason I should not fly American is there? I'm finding their round trip packages are significantly less expensive for a trip I'm planning this december.

I'm still flying them. Of course, I don't have much choice since they monopolize my hub. I don't see any reason you shouldn't.<BR>

One of the best, and I should know, 75000 miles per year.

Love 'em -- more legroom throughout coach, which is nice for a 6'3" guy like me.

You should have no qualms about flying AA. I fly them 3-4 times / month, and have never had a problem. AA is without question the best US carrier.

I would stay away from the Airbus model planes. There are some pretty scary findings about that crash out of JFK last year.

Also stay away from 737, 747, and 757 aircrafts. The following information was recently released:<BR><BR>"Aug. 30 saw the FAA dispatched an urgent order, demanding all major airlines in the States to make a thorough check on 1440 Boeing aircraft, because these aircraft are found having possible problems on the connecting lines of their fuel pumps, which may cause explosion. In last January and April, about 1250 such fuel pumps were installed onto Boeing 737, 747 and 757 aircraft".<BR><BR>Talk about scary!

Joe,<BR><BR>If you are going to throw out scare stats, please try to be complete. <BR><BR>The FAA said it was a minor problem affecting a few of the models you mentioned. Not a panic situation as you suggest.<BR><BR>A follow-up article said all fuel pumps that needed replacing had been completed. I don't have the figures, but out of the total amount of airplanes mentioned (several thousand), the number of pumps replaced was miniscule.<BR><BR>AAflyer

I haven't flew AA in 10 yrs. Since I'm in the NYC area, I have plenty of choices.<BR><BR>I personally prefer #1 continental, #2 United for Int'l. They use 777 for most of their flights and have personal TV's in coach.<BR>

AA,<BR>75,000 per year? that is all? You are not allowed to be as smug as you are until you hit 100,000 per year. Oh guess I can be smug.....<BR><BR>

All of my American flights to Europe have been extremely pleasant.<BR><BR>Virgin is also very nice. <BR><BR>My domestic flights on American have been a lot more comfortable than on US Air, and about the same as Delta.<BR><BR>To Europe there is much more seat room than cramped Lufthansa or Icelandair (although the Keflavik airport is pretty damn nice).<BR><BR>And they don't yell at you, and act extremely rude to you, spit on you, lose your luggage or do any of the other horrible things that Alitalia will inflict on you.

Swear by them and do enjoy the extra leg room and I'm only 5'3...can't imagine how you big guys do it with other airlines. Unfortunately, I live in a city which is practically monopolized by another airline.

Recently flew to Las Vagas with AA from London. First time I had flown with them. The seats do seem to be slightly wider and there is defintely more leg room. All in all a very pleasant trip and would certainly fly with them again. And Yes they do seem slightly cheaper than other Airlines.

American is a great airline. Have been flying w/them since the '70s w/o any problems. International flights are the best, especially in First Class cabins. Cannot beat that service.<BR><BR>Stick with American whenever possible.
