Merry Christmas!

Here's a first: The first American Airbus A321 seen at LAX. We saw an American A319 pass through a few months ago, but there was no opportunity for me to grab a photo. In the opening shot, the A321 is seen with an American B737-800; my understanding is that American intends to operate both types. We've heard that the A321s will be seen at LAX on the JFK flights, which are currently operated almost exclusively with B767-200s.

The A321 is a direct competitor to the B737-900. Here they are seen together on Taxiway Bravo; the B739 is in United colors.

I wasn't able to get the A321 with a B762, but here's the next-best thing: A United B739 takes off as an American B762 taxis out. I apologize for the poor quality of the shots in today's entry; the A321 taxied out shortly after noon on a hazy day. Nevertheless, thanks to RI for helping to make these shots happen.
