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.|
