    You are right historically LAX-deep South Am has struggled. To make new EZE possible, AA is reducing frequency on the GRU route to alternating days.

    AA has a ton of capacity to GRU and I am glad they are “redistributing” that capacity to have a more varied Latin America route network.

    I have said before, besides Latin America, AA’s international route network is pretty fragmented compared to UA and DL. They don’t have a massive TPAC hub (DL has the same problem) and they don’t have a TATL hub or two that serves all EU destinations that the airline serves nor a hub that has a very robust domestic network – PHL is nowhere on the scale of UA’s EWR or DL’s ATL.

    Frustrating as an AA flyer sometimes. Feels like there are destinations they are serving for the sake of serving that destination (DFW-KEF, JFK-EDI, DFW-ICN) as opposed to making a destination a market that vast majority of the US can fly to with minimal headaches. Want to go to AKL from the east coast on AA? Most mid-size markets you will have to double connect with inconvenient flight times.

    This is GREAT news for those of us that travel frequently to Buenos Aires (EZE). It’s such a pain to have to travel from the West Coast via DFW or MIA. This is fabulous! I wonder what award availability will be like?
