    For those hoping AA will not go spend-based at least this change buys a few months of observation of what DL/UA face. For those wondering if switching to AA is in their interest, it elongates the uncertainty curve on AA’s long term plans. Given the timeline AA has announced it might not be until even ’17 that they are IT ready to convert to spend-based.

    I still hold out little hope AA will be the outlier. There’s precious little history of the major network carriers using their FF plans as competitive tools relative to another and there’s much more history of them following each other through successive devaluations.
