Not happening. Have you seen AA's debt to capital ratio?

They have a very tense labor situation on their hands

And per the scope restrictions they can't get anymore 700s. Moreover the 700s are supposed to go mainline when it becomes "cost neutral" to do so.
The only flying another regional could do for AA would be on 50 seat or less aircraft. The CRJs are scoped into Eagle by APA's contract. I would need to double check as to whether the ATRs are scoped specifically to us too.
AMR to buy Jetblue.

Scraps the Airbus as the airplane comes up for service checks. At the same time does not renew crew contracts as the airframes start to disappear. Jetblue pilots hit the street.

Keeps the Ejet/jblu certif making it their next wholly owned.

The big ??? Who flies the Ejet? Answer; AA furloughees after a lengthy battle of scope and who has bigger balls.

Those Jetblue pilots all have an expiration date on them. They all work under contracts that are up for renewal someday.
