#1126673 Fantasy Financial metrics

Posted by ChockJockey on 23 October 2014 - 08:45 PM

and yet, DL has consistently posted superior moonthumbs per seat gallon for every quarter since 1972.

 

AA hasn't.

 

what you and the other AA fanboys here fail to grasp is that with an ever-increasing negative fleet age and an inverted coffee cup to engine cycle ratio trans-Pacific yields and time-adjusted FRASM's will eventually equalize with seasonal variations in headwind drag velocity and an increasingly favorable reduction in the pro-balsamized lending rates which AA's creditors are enjoying artificially.

 

it comes straight from the financial statement.

 

DL was made on the eighth day and was blessed exceptionally by the Almighty; DL is without sin but came to this world to deliver us from subpar non-Atlanta based legacies.  Richard Anderson excretes nuggets of solid gold.

 

these are FACTS.

 

it is not a personal attack to say you'd be less of a schmuck if you'd ever worked for DL. AA is has reason to be worried for the sole fact that it is not DL and consistently and SEVERELY has not been DL for nearly 320 quarters - that the new management has done nothing to change this should very much concern AA's employees and investors and don't think that Wall Street hasn't noticed it as well.

 

attitudinal-adjusted polls of high-revenue FF's consistently demonstrate that the most lucrative transcontinental passengers care far more about the amount and profitability of the cargo in the holds beneath them than they do amenities, seating options, or quality of service - but, hey, if AA wants to continue flying highly profitable people back and forth across North America it's in their right to do so, it will cost them dearly and I am highly confident that AA's Q4 financial results will justify my opinion here.

 

DL is winning in W. Kansas.

 

DL does not lose money, it does not know how.

 

DL completed a transwarp PNR systems integration in record time, Dougie simply doesn't care to, and probably lacks sufficient knowledge in multi-dimensional airline booking software co-crossovers to do so.

 

DL met and surpassed UA's reverse load-modified SHASM torque values in all top-performing markets - alphabetically - and put WN's bobbledrop transmogrified maintenance expense per square footage of carpeting to shame.

 

can AA say the same?

 

DL wins again.

#1109643 AA traffic results: load factor falls, RASM disappoints

Posted by FWAAA on 08 August 2014 - 09:42 AM

I will continue to be a frequent participant on this forum and in providing every nitpicking piece of data I can find if people can't learn to participate in this forum without tearing someone else down.

And that,  in a nutshell, is why your posts are not warmly received.   That and the outrageous things you posted during your recent meltdown (you know, the ones the moderators deleted?).   

 

It's not the data or information, it's the psycho posting them.

#1181865 American Airlines Group Reports Highest Quarterly Profit In Company History

Posted by MetalMover on 24 July 2015 - 08:30 AM

AA's profitability was driven by lower fuel costs. Period.

its revenue production was far below average for the industry.

Competition as I expected is full focused on AA's network and its RASM across its system showed it.

And not only is AA's size advantage as a result of the merger nearly gone but the difference in profitability is far lower and has likely come to an end now that fuel prices are virtually the same for all large carriers.

AA's operating margin was significantly below DL and WN but above UA.

This is why you are nothing more than a troll. You must have a compulsive disorder because you cannot leave DL out of just about any and every topic.

NO one cares about Delta on this board nor do we care about YOUR biased opinions.

#1157560 TWU-IAM Finally Getting Ready for JCBA Negotiations

Posted by Vortilon on 18 March 2015 - 10:03 AM

V,

Most of the Little Team is gone at Int'l. That's what many of our current local 591 officers blamed for our current predicament. So did we get rid of the "d bags" and replace them with new "d bags"? What most of us want to know is that since the new group of local and Int'l officials are in and the past has been thoroughly debated as to how wrong the old group was, when do we hear some optimism about how the new group is going to make it better for us? We need the new leadership to lead. Start engaging us on the floor, stop the negative rhetoric about how screwed up the past was, lay out their frame work going forward. Or is this the best 591 has, stay on the message of how bad everyone else was so we are distracted from the fact that they really have no plan. Is their brand of leadership just bad mouth everyone else and not doing anything meaningful to make it better for us now?

 

How can we forget about the past when the same people you want us to forget about, hung a boat anchor around the future AMT negotiators necks?  Truth is, Local 591 can't change much at all, and most of us AMTs realize that.  I have yet to meet an AMT at AA that supports the "association".  No AMT trusts the TWU International.  Point is, as long as we are stuck in the suck - we are going to make sure everybody feels it one way or another.   What do you expect Gary Peterson to do?  Should he be pumping sunshine up our behinds, telling us how things will get better, but maybe we should lower our expectations?  Maybe the TWU will release the rest of the equity money to us some day.  Maybe the company will give us the retiree medical match some day.  Sorry the company decided to give all the other AA employees a 4% raise outside of negotiations - except TWU represented.  Then justify it using a weak excuse.  That was almost as lame as the companys excuse to take away PV Days - "because no other airline offers pv days to their employees".  Well, we all know that was complete BS, they call them DAT days at other airlines. 

 

Point is, AMTs at AA have nothing to be encouraged about.  After watching the town hall meetings on Jetnet, I am more convinced than ever - that the AMTs at AA are screwed.  That leaves AAs AMTs having to rely on (God forbid) the association.  Considering that, how could Gary keep a staight face and try to sell that.  I can picture Gary speaking to the membership now (looking sorta like Pinocchio in the Geico ad) "with the full backing of the association, we will fight to get you everything you lost, Delta plus 7 or more, and profit sharing to boot." 

 

Do you really think that when most of us get those stupid updates telling us how our negotiators attended a six day seminar on how to negotiate are encouraging?  It's a joke, and you know it, and so does Gary & Bob.  They also are aware that the International owns the contract, and ultimately has the final say so.  Remind me how that has gone for AAs AMTs in the past.

Fact: if you paint a red widget on the tail, your planes will fly faster on less fuel. Also your passengers will pay more for their ticket and they won't mind the shittier food.

When an Eastie has the temerity to accuse the West of trying to steal anything you know it's nothing more than flame-baiting. Don't give him the satisfaction of getting riled up. Until the courts give us justice we just have to be patient. Who knows, maybe karma will catch up with him in the meantime.

You have a knack for adding stupid commentary where it is not needed nor appreciated.  Go haunt somewhere else, your schtick got old a long time ago.

You measure respect by the fact you've stayed at one company for the longest amount of years? You should think about getting more realistic definitions of respect.

#1164048 AA reports record 1st quarter income

Posted by eolesen on 24 April 2015 - 06:56 AM

Shocking -- had to open WT's post to get the link, just to find one backhanded compliment and five negatives about the quarter.

It's an impressive income number, and AA looks like they've firmly cemented the lowest CASM both with and ex fuel.

I'll comment further in the generic topic in the Airline News thread after I've updated the comparison spreadsheet.

#1174566 American gets Delta's Haneda slot

Posted by FWAAA on 19 June 2015 - 01:38 PM

and their decline in the Latin region is happening as we speak with losses far larger than any other airline has reported in any other region.


Not a big surprise given the substantial additional capacity by all airlines and the challenging economies in the region.

and despite those profits in the Pacific, AA still showed a substantial revenue disadvantage to DL and UA in the region.


So what? I suspect that once AA has a comparable Pacific network from LAX, its revenue disadvantages will diminish.

if you don't care what is profitable or not for anyone, then it is all just a dartboard and string line exercise suitable for a.net


Sure, but then you couldn't participate, since they banned your ass from that website years ago. :D

Actually, it's not just a random dartboard exercise, it's the build-out of a viable Pacific network that will rival that of DL and UA. One that will foreclose any corporate account objection of "but AA's Pacific options from LAX don't match up to those of DL or UA." With a comparable network that will take business travelers where they need to go, I suspect that the revenue disadvantage will diminish and eventually evaporate.

But I realize that won't stop your nonstop braying about how little revenue AA achieves on its Pacific network. Keep up that howling or else the moon might get lonely.
