Tweet Picks:

@ByERussellWhoa: American has about 45 fewer (!!) longhaul aircraft today than it did in 2019, Raja says. Early in the pandemic American retired all of its A330s and 767s — a decision it might regret today as United and Delta pick up international share. $AAL.

@ByERussell American’s shortage of long-haul aircraft is exacerbated by Boeing’s 787 delivery issues.

@ByERussell “We need them to get their act together,” American CEO Isom says of Airbus and Boeing’s delivery delays. Isom adds that the latest Boeing delays will only “minimally” impact American this summer. $AAL.

@ByERussell American is scheduled to take 20 new 737-8s and 787s through the end of the year. It notes though that: “actual delivery dates are subject to change.” $AAL.

@ByERussell Another interesting fleet point, despite Raja saying American is down ~45 long-haul aircraft from 2019, it only has 33 widebodies on order. But, American also has 50 long-range A321XLRs on order. Those will definitely take up some of the long-haul slack. $AAL.
