Those awards mean nothing to me. They are awarded from people I dont know and who dont share my opinions on what I see as a good airline. I am not praising AA but you cannot say one is better than the other based on an award. I fly so I don't have to drive and I could care less if I get an overpriced meal, movie, pillow ect. Even if my flight was 14 hours. I bring my own entertainment. I am just lucky to be in a plane and not driving a car through traffic or on a boat or train. Just get me there. That is all I care about. I am not like you. Lets agree to disagree on this one.
I was not completely sure on what they flew out of Love. I thought they might be in the Wright Restrictions somehow. Thanks for informing me on this one. I thought that other carriers didnt have much success with these types of planes. AA crashed and burned using them so did Legend.
Did you check every airline? I saw numbers for Delta & Northwest that were well over the numbers you just stated. They do serve alot of international destinations and more Mexican destinations than most. But I am not off like you stated. See below
Delta: 900 destinations (w/ codeshare)
AA: 570 (codeshare, one world alliance)
Northwest: 750 (with codeshare)
These numbers come from their websites and include codeshare and destinations served through alliances. Check for yourself you will have to do some digging.
They like to use the big # so they can boast. Hard to find the actual destinations flown by the airlines on their sites.
I was just making the point that because of their limited presence at Love that is why the lines were shorter. I was in no way trying to diminish their service. I would choose Continental over WN any day of the week because unlike WN they serve both Love and DFW.
Again more people fly AA! They can't be that bad if they are the worlds largest airline. Continental is not. Why is that? Yes Continental filed bankruptcy in the 90's but they still did. AA did not and AA had done a great job of cutting cost and will probably turn a profit this year. Again its all a matter of personal opinion.
