    Hard to believe it’s completely unrelated to BDS pressure.

    Would they consider flying to Tel Aviv from NY?

    Someone should fill in the geniuses at AA that a NY-TLV route might have a better chance at being successful. Just a thought.

    If they would have flown from JFK they would have lots of profit.

    The AA flights are way up there in fare cost. If they lowered the fare they could certainly fill the planes and compete with United and Delta and the European airlines.

    The truth why American is canceling flights to Israel is because they owe $15milion to the Israeli retired employes of the airline so instead of flying to Israel and paying the employees they will just stop the route ton Israel. Hopefully the Israeli courts and the airline can reach a settlement deal before the final merge with us airways. Once the merge is complete the Israel courts can hold planes as calrateel until a deal has been reached so hope fully the airline can reach a settlement deal before the two airlines completely merge.
