I''ve been hearing a lot of talk of MCIE closing next year. AA wants to fly where Southwest doesn''t, so I would guess there will be less demand for narrowbody maintenance as AA trims it''s domestic flight schedule. There would be big savings in going from 3 maintenance bases to 2. Also I hear that the city of Kansas City hasn''t come through with all those millions for upgrades yet. If this happens, I certainly hope it happens soon, as in before the next contract, so that TWA mechanics don''t get system protection to displace AAer''s.
