    If they're closing the 330 pilot bases at PHL and CLT, nobody's left to fly them "here n there"

    This is definitely happening. Our November reservation from CLT to FRA changed from the A330-200 to the B777-200. There was no notification of the change or of our new seat assignments.

    And there probably won't be until we are much closer to your departure date. The aircraft that will be used may be changed more than once depending on bookings, etc. I understand that the European flights are doing better than expected, and that will drive the aircraft selection process more than a "how much of a loss can we afford" decision.

    Schedule change notices don't typically go out until you're within 45-60 days of departure. If you had seats together, and still have seats together, there's really nothing to notify you of, is there?

    AA did keep us seated together but on both flights we were moved to bulkhead row seats. If we wanted bulkhead row seats, we would have selected them originally. We're flying in PE which only has three rows, so that doesn't leave many seats of the type we want. The good news (for us but not AA) is that for now, PE is virtually empty.
