So? What's the point of this? AirCal and AA merged like 20 years ago.

I just don't think that the BAe-146 makes that much sense....do you think they'll keep them?

That changes everything! I can not believe it.. It is rumored that AA will adopt the OC name and scheme, but this is top secret.. The agreement also says that all Airbus orders will be cancelled and only MD-80 will be operated, so Dylan: No BAe..

Here is the first repaint, but i think we need ~100 threads to discuss the repainting of the fleet and need to list the registrations as they come in..



Irony off: Great to see Bill and Dylan again.. Welcome back!

This merger does give AA much needed West Coast presence, but fleet commonality is weird. AA doesn't operate the 733/732 or BAe, and AirCal removed the MD-80 by 1985. I can see them building up KSJC into a mini hub...maybe for Asia flights?

Because people like you lack a sense of humor? Something also tells me this is the first you've heard of AirCal. Sad.

Dylan is just excited about the 26th anniversary of 'Planes, Trains, and Automobiles', 'Dirty Dancing', etc.

So Dylan, how was that trip in your DeLorean?

Hey Adam. On your next trip to the grocery store you should go down the medicine aisle and look for the value pack of 'Chill Pills'. Take 2 (or more) and call us in the morning.

Yeah, like Ichan would ever let that happen. Next you'll be telling me TWA's gonna order MD-95's and 757's.
