The big American airlines are likely doomed to extinction. It may be impossible to run a full-service national airline in the USA.
I flew American Airlines recently and concur that their service is crappy. American flys more unhappy passengers than anyone else.
Most annoyingly, American (and most airlines) are adding unexpected fees to delay the inevitable bankruptcy.
Baggage restrictions have been tightened supposedly because of fuel savings if we take less luggage.
On American you can take 2 bags each weighing up to 50lbs. If you check only 1 bag weighing 55lbs they immediately want you to pay a surcharge. If you resist in anyway (fuss with the bag for a minute) they give up on the extra fee. This scenario happened to me on all 3 AA flights.
Airlines ignore their luggage rules as they ignore their carry-on limits. It’s just another way to get you to pony up more cash.
I have little respect for big airlines. The sooner they are displaced by leaner upstarts, the better.
It’s a perfect Truman Show gated community catering to those age 55 or older who no longer work — but who refuse to slow down!
36-hole golf course, softball fields, swimming pools, aerobics, dance studio. 80 clubs and organizations catering to every interest, even synchronized swimming. We were waiting for the fitness centre door to open at 6AM each morning.
Two neighbours were both recently widowed. They met through the Singles Club and are now getting married.

This is Joyce Long from a TV interview where she was asked her opinion of another huge new proposed housing development which threatened to pollute pristine Silver Springs — the world’s largest limestone spring.
Joyce and I in a double kayak pushed hard up river because other boaters told us that monkeys had been spotted. These must be the most northerly monkeys in the wild in North America. They are descendents from escaped movie monkeys.
