Hawaiian Air? This may be an answer to infuse an AAL presence in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific rather quickly.
AMR/AA helped to bail out HA in the early 1990's when they were operating the airline from a checkbook each day and had no spare engines. Remember the AA DC-10s that they leased them to keep them in the air? These planes were retrofitted and painted with HA exteriors here in TULE.
Do they owe us one? Maybe!
