    Was talking with a US FA who tells me that the reverse is true also. US planes starting to fly AA routes at least out of MIA.

    I wonder if it's so they can better utilize planes as opposed to having them sit to just do pre-merger routes or better plane size for demand.

    Unfortunately, this has been the case. Whenever I go onto AirlineRoute.net and see something along the lines of "MIA-LAS on American to be operated by an Airbus A320 starting in December 2014" I get so excited until I see the seatmap and notice it's one of US' A320s and not the A321Ts.

    This should be one the the ways that the merger lowers costs or takes advantages of synergies.
