Random question - so I was watching City Slickers, which was released back in 1991, and at the very end of the movie, there is an airport scene, which appears to be LAX (and also confirmed via IMDB's filming location pages) - it has a sign that shows the following airlines for T4- AA/AE, AS and NY Helicopter.
When did AS move from T4 to T3, and did NY Helicopter really fly in LAX?? Do you think the sign was "adjusted" to make it look like it might be a NY area airport?

Not sure about 1991 specifically, but yes AS was in T-4 with AA. Matter of fact T-4 has been home to many other airlines such as Northwest Orient, Pride Air, Reno Air(way before merger), Piedmont, Air One, America West etc..
For the helicopter, Airspur operated from T-4 using the helipad on top of the T-4 parking structure, but they shut down in 1985.

Quoting Chrisair (Reply 2): I could have sworn Reno Air always operated out of T-3. AirCal was over on the south side, but I thought they were at T5/6 or something like that.
I agree, am I thinking of the latter part of Reno Air's years? I remember being in a QX Fokker (at the very start of their LAX service) and seeing a Reno Air MD-80 with American titles as well as another Reno Air MD parked next to us in T-3. Maybe it's just me?
