You mean Delta got approval for DFW-NRT?   :>

AA's interest will continue to peak as long as the pilots union and TWU 
contract talks continue to move. Depending on who you talk to, there is 
a lot of ground still yet to cover or the agreement in emminent. If they 
don't both come to an agreement that will reduce overall costs without 
losing pay or benefits by doing so, then I doubt that we'll see any 
bare-metal twins flying for a U.S. flag carrier from Texas.... No 
contract, no new toys.
