    According to a Russian who I work with, flying Aerolineas was disturbingly reminiscent of his one internal Aeroflot flight, where he cancelled his return ticket and spent 36 hours on a train just to make sure he got back alive.

    @2 LOL. I haven't found it that bad on the occasions where there is no alternative but to fly Aerolineas. The flights are often delayed or cancelled at short notice but is not unique to that airline. The strikes are annoying but more worrying is an incident where two pilots engaged in fistycuffs in the cockpit of an Aerolineas airplane.

    The problem is that the AA is used as political tool with to cheap tickets....but the common people doesn´t think that the cost surplus is payd by all of them through their taxes.......
    Anyway, we can send them Mr. Cueto to help AA managing staff......LOL

    Most airlines make money on international and subsidise their domestic routes, so it looks like AA have nowhere to go (in flying parlance, they have exceeded PNR).

    just as a detail: it's AR, not AA.
    AA is reserved for American Airlines...
