Right now they are the bottom of the US3. But it's cyclical, the deck chairs are constantly rearranged. We saw something similar when Delta and United dealt with stabilizing after their mergers.

Delta is miles ahead and has been for years

Honestly they all suck, but I have to say Delta is a bit better overall. Also I think we all forget the airport part of delays. For example, ORD/DFW always issues with the airport so AA is delayed there. Flying AA out of DCA, rarely have issues

If you're an ExecPlat and you care about upgrades and int'l redemptions to Europe/South America, AA can do a lot for you

They all suck for sure. Delta has nicer planes but I enjoy American only because of hub and can get where ever I want directly globally. Plus BA in Europe helps. Delays have been less then 10% of my flights this year so it's just over exaggerated

Hate it.

A2 BA is quickly becoming a budget carrier, I'm not sure that's much of a draw anymore. To anybody saying Delta is better, it just depends on what you prioritize. UA, AA and DL all have their strengths and weaknesses.

Maybe if you were from Afghanistan?

I've been EP with AA for a few years and am happy. Don't think it's great if you're not that. Was 1K before that with way fewer upgrades.
