Looking for some fotos after a topic related to a possible acquisition of some RJ's directly to AA, I saw this wonderful pics displaying an ex Air Cal Bac146 in FULL AA colors. Now I ask:

When and why did all happened?
How long and where to did they use it?
How was the satisfaction on that particular aircraft?

Thank you.

AA acquired Air Cal 146s when it merged in 1988 timeframe and the aircraft were in service for only a VERY short term 6--9 months. These aircraft were used primarily on intra-state Cali routes. Once the Air Cal infrastructure was quickly absorbed, the 146s ended up in storage.

USAir had a strikingly similar history with the 146 when it merged with PSA at roughly the same time.

Neither US nor AA was thrilled with the BAE 146 series. The joke used to be they carried a spare engine as cargo. The operational reliability of the type was poor compared to it's contemporaries and they were quickly parked and mothballed. A few later saw service with Air Wisconsin aka United Express.
