American Airlines says any carrier with imagination can benefit from aircraft innovation

20 March, 2018

American Airlines manager international planning Henning Greiser stated both full service and low cost airlines have the potential to benefit from aircraft innovation, providing they have the imagination to do so (Routes Online, 19-Mar-2018). He said: "Both can benefit and we have expanded to Asia Pacific [with new aircraft]". Mr Gresier cited the example of European LCCs which have seen A320neos and A321LRs expand their route development horizons. He added: "The Boeing 757 was not supposed to fly trans Atlantic but someone from Continental figured out they could".
