Most of these routes are flown by AAs 777-200ER, what could it mean for these aircraft?

At the moment a lot of these aircraft are flying domestic routes like JFK-MIA or LAX-DFW, but their is a lot less need for these aircraft then there is at the moment. I hope the aircraft survive.

My bet is they’ll ground the 777 for now, any routes that still have load factors even close to that can definitely be picked up by the 787

Disagree. They will probably put these airplanes on higher density routes between hubs and probably to Hawaii as well

All there routes are down so much. There’s no way they couldn’t convert those routes to Dreamliners, and a half full Dreamliner hurts a lot less than a half full triple seven especially the older ones

No sense putting them on domestic runs when domestic travel is in free fall also.

Ummm I’m seeing that they are retiring the 767’s around may. Please tell me it’s not so.

Looks like the 757’s as well.

Funny that’s mentioned bc while most Travel is down, the airline I work for our flights are booked full everyday they operate. We’ve had to add an extra flight

And which airline is that? LCC?

That’s because your company doesn’t rely on corporate travel, just people running off to Destin, Melbourne, or Punta Gorda.

You’d be surprised how many business people we get. I’d say 50% of our flights are business related

We’re feeling this now. Lots of our customers are corporate travel.
