I mean this announcement is cool and all but doesn't really seem to do a lot for hiring. I think that was all his point is.

But, still cool. I really hope these destinations stick. More successful destinations and they might start ordering more aircraft. Who knows. Doug hasn't presided over an expanding airline, really, ever. From CEO at AWA just prior to 9/11, he's had a rough two decades.
A rough two decades?! He holds about $80 million in AA stock and runs one of the largest airlines in the world. I wish my idea of a rough 20 years was only 80 mill
