AC AA LA FA

With Uniteds tentitive plans to start up another version of shuttle opperation on the west coast, do you think AA will, this time go head to head with UAL, and do the same? If there are adjustments to the AA contracts re: pay and work rules and the flying can be shared with AE, it may be wize to do so, as AA missed out on west coast oppertunities with out a west coast network last time and the company has learned that you can not have a strong premium customer base east to west with out keeping butts in seats on AA up and down the coast. To the unions it would be attractive as it would mean jobs back at AA and the customers would rather fly AA metal of AE Rjs anyday...Before it is to late, and AA resorts to snaching up some new low cost carrier down the road (AirCal-Reno) I hope thhis is something on the minds of HDQ...Maybe the 3rd time will be the charmer...
