    AA posted this on "Facebook" at 16:30 CDT Sunday. Wonder what it is? Any thoughts?

    My money's on something vaguely interesting by also very predictable and known, much like their other teases have been. I'd be very happy to be wrong though. :)

    I hope it's better than a United enhancement. :p

    Or worse a Delta "enhancement" like adding YR to KE awards :(

    Not just on Facebook, or Twitter, but on Google Plus too... A lot of people there think is something about a merger!!!

    AA isn't announcing anything major like merger information through Facebook/Twitter/Google Plus. That's the business equivalent of breaking up with someone through a text message.

    The tease included the hashtag #avgeek. It's likely something related to the fleet/routes/planes.

    DirecTV to the planes? Better AVOD if they have it already?

    Not sure they need to try, AA's Twitter presence is probably one of the best of the major US airlines. The Facebook presence is a bit "meh" but certainly nothing to shake a stick at with a disapproving gaze. They've improved quite a bit from when they first debuted, some work still needed, but much better than UA and on par with DL.

    I never said they would, but what people over google Plus think it might be. Take a look:

    And I never said that you said they were announcing merger information. ;)

    I only said that the likelihood of AA announcing something major like a merger via social media with a teaser the night before is just about zero, and that doesn't change whether you're saying it or AA's Google + followers are saying it. :)

    New livery most likely. The time frame fits with their new planes coming up and their statements in the press over the last couple of months.

    With the possibility of a merger on the horizon, I think it's unlikely they would make a fleet-wide livery change at this time. Possible they could announce the livery for the Airbus and 787 fleet as they aren't close to being delivered and it would only take a re-design on paper/mock-ups and not a physical respray.

    My guess is something far more mundane, like a contest or further partner bookings on AA.com.

    Transcons going Airbus and staying 3 class, wifi and IFE on all new planes even domestically. Nice to wake up to this kind of news.

    Airbus aircraft will be entering service starting in July 2013 apparently.
