    I sent the request in to have the title updated (you cannot do it on your own). Also I hope you don't mind but I fixed your link so that it takes people directly to the story instead of the main page for the Aviation Blog @ Dallas News.

    :)

    AA flew the A300 from 1988-2009. Must be in the desert.

    January 27th should be a date anyone interested in AA's future should be watching closely.

    You apparently changed the displayed value, but not the actual URL that clicking the link takes me to. Try replying to Keith's email and you see the problem in the markup. Not a big deal right now as it's still the first story, but thought I'd mention it for future reference. :)

    So is AA still paying for that A300? Or just for storage?

    Worked for me but I still went back and broke the link and re-did it. Should work for sure now!

    Must be in the desert. AFAIK AA isn't flying any of them, hasn't for several years.

    Why do you say this? This will be a routine bankruptcy hearing where the debtor petitions to cancel certain leases. The fate of this small number of aircraft doesnt seem to be particularly critical in AA's the ultimate outcome of the bankruptcy.

    Because it isn't just this most recent list that will be overseen, and it isn't just leases that will be discussed. Is it not the first day of hearings, where the general tone will be set, and discovery is set forth?

    ROW has many of them, A300's for sure. This site has a list of most of the storage facilities in use in the US:

    The future of AA is in the hands of people/firms with capital to invest. Whether they keep some planes or not matters far less than if a competitor lodges a bid...so some investors try to break them up....that will be at least initiated in the market (though ultimately ratified by a court)...we'll hear about any such plan in the news before it turns up in court.
