This month, American Airlines (AA) are celebrating their 90th anniversary. Their history began on the 15th of April 1926 when aviator Charles A. Lindbergh stowed a bag of mail in his DH-4 biplane and took off from Chicago, headed to St. Louis. AAL Flight 90 to Heathrow (coincidence that the pic matches this statement) Doug Parker, AA’s CEO/Chairman said:

It has been a terrific 90 years for our airline and our best days lie ahead. American is 100,000 strong and innovating every day in large and small ways. Working in this industry is a noble profession, and working for American is a special calling.
