No, but they are already starting to see some fruits from it. They are already recording operating profits again. However, they havent recorded overall profits because of Chapter 11 costs. Below were their profit margins from last quater. The first number is RASM and the second is CASM:

Atlantic
AA - 1.1% / 13.72


Latin America
AA - 9.4% / 16.89


Pacific
AA - (9.8%) / 12.19


I have it on good word that the losses over the Pacific are coming entirely from China. Tokyo is very profitable for American. Unfortunately for AA, Delta and United pretty much kick their tails in China. DFW-Tokyo is one of the most profitable flights in the airline's entire network.

Remember in 2006, right before Delta came out of Chapter 11, Delta launched Atlanta-Dubai/Vienna/Prague. Then right afterward, they launched Atlanta-Johannesburg via Dakar.

Airlines tend to come out swinging toward the end of Chapter 11.

That might still happen. In fact, I think a merger is even more likely between those two now, than I did a year ago.

Air Berlin is part of Oneworld now so AA will get plenty of connections.


AA is doing pretty decent with bankruptcy besides for the problems with the pilots.

Air Berlin has two hubs: Berlin and Dusseldorf. Air Berlin is beginning service to Chicago in the spring from Berlin. AA will have its code on that flight, so it makes sense to connect Chicago to the other Air Berlin hub.
