How do the two airlines compare as it relates to schedule manipulation? Much ability at either to trade or drop? Iím sure it depends on a lot of factors, but letís just say an average month, A320 out of LAX for both airlines.

You can drop your entire schedule at American. You have to know how to manipulate the system.

1. Is there a hyper loop to your domicile from your residence?

2. If not, then you should live in domicile at AA

Optional step 3: while working at AA, buy stocks at Delta, and then itís kind of like you are enjoying the best of both worlds.

4. Stop being average.

I think we can all agree that pandas are just a waste of space.

Just the ears, deep fried nice and crispy. The rest of the panda they market as a product called ďtofuĒ.

Been with AA 34 years and always lived in base. Don't even want to think about how many hours and days I would have wasted had I been a commuter. If you don't want to move, go with the airline that has a base where you live!

Wife and I sat down, did the math. To have the same TAFH (time away from home), just doing commutable trips, with an easy 2 hour commute, rig @ 3rd year pay, NK, it was $30k/yr. That's before the cost of lost premium opportunity, lost commute, blood pressure meds. In our case we decided it was worth it, but definitely, make sure it's worth it for you.
