I was watching "Weekend at Bernies 2" when a 727 landed at St. Thomas and if you look close (it took me 2 times to notice it) in the back at two gates you see two AA A300s.. Where did AA fly these from? That runway is pretty short and I saw a 757 taking off from there and it had to of use maybe 95% of the runway and an A300 is much bigger.. can anyone give me any info?

During the late 80's and early 90's AA used to operate one of their SJU-STT flights with the A300 and sometimes one of their MIA-STT flights would also use the A300. During my time with EA I flew MIA-STT many times on 757 equipment. Back in 1976 one of AA's JFK-STT 727-100 flights was unable to get off the ground during a go around and ended slamming into a gas station at the end of the runway.
