Some photos of American Airlines 777-300ER

We’ve got some photos of the interior of the new Boeing 777-300ERs that American Airlines will put into commercial service beginning Thursday.

It will depart soon for the Victorville, Calif., […]

Some theories on American Airlines’ operational problems

The numbers clearly show that American Airlines began suffering many more delayed and cancelled flights as of Sept. 13. I didn’t take logic in college, so my logic may be flawed.
