When I went through the interview process last week a couple of the CAs mentioned the AA jets were coming out of paint and bolstering the UA fleet resulting in routes further west than LNK and more east coast flying. Anyone here tracking these details?

AWA holds information close until it's "need to know", and right now we don't need to know our final route structure.

This plane is not comfortable for pilots or passengers for more than a 3 hour flight, and since there is no wi-fi or amenities of a larger RJ we probably won't be doing flights much farther west from ORD unless we get a DEN base. We do have DEN and COS charts in our iPads, and usually we don't have charts for airports unless we service them. That has created a wild rumor of a DEN base or out to Denver flying.

Is that some kind of joke? Not comfortable past 3 hours? Anything over an hour on the 200 is awful.

60 crews in mke. Rumor is its going to 100 crews. For an outstation of that size, were gonna have to do more than just ord out of there. Ewr, den, iah, iad or some combo of those. Maybe even fra and lhr.

Key word being rumor. There were dozens of rumors about AWAs future prior to the announcement last year and not a single one was correct. Im hesitant to make ANY prediction about what the future holds for this company.

I have a feeling 18-24 month upgrades will start to happen soon, and they will go directly to MKE captain slots. There are only so many senior guys in Wisconsin who can fill those 60 slots. No one else (that I know) wants to voluntarily commute there when you can probably expect ORF-like schedules.

Could be interesting if you fly MKE-IAH or DEN and then do some flying out of those hubs to return on the last leg of the day to MKE. Like how we did CLT “trips”.

Forgive my ignorance, but why not (never seemed to be an issue on the 91/135 side)?

Downtown Ottawa was nice, Halifax was the middle of nowhere, Toronto had good food around otherwise boring, quebec city was, well Quebec city, Montreal wasn’t terrible. Everyone made such a big deal about poutine and schwarma but it wasn’t all that great ha ha.

Canada is not an exotic international destination, and they all do things a little differently just enough to make you ****ed off.
