I was wondering if anybody could help me out with this memory I have.....I flew AA PHX-LAX-SFO in Dec 1990 (if anybody knows what a/c type that would have been that would be great to know), but when we were transferring at LAX we seemed to have a really tight connection and I remember an AA agent suggesting that he take us on his cart through some lengthy underground tunnel to another AA section where our flight was departing. Does anyone know what this probably was?

Are you sure it was American?
I am looking at American's November 1, 1990 and December 15, 1990 timetable, and there is no AA service between Phoenix and Los Angeles (or San Francisco).
However, as for the aircraft used between LAX and SFO:
November 1, 1990:
6:45am-8:14am AA 102 MD80
7:45am-9:10am AA 584 MD80
8:45am-10:13am AA 1208 MD80
9:45am-11:11am AA 1064 MD80
10:45am-12:13pm AA 1148 MD80
11:45am-1:13pm AA 254 MD80
1:45pm-3:14pm AA 522 MD80
2:45pm-4:06pm AA 414 MD80
3:45pm-5:05pm AA 256 MD80
4:45pm-6:09pm AA 592 MD80
5:45pm-7:09pm AA 644 MD80
6:45pm-8:10pm AA 836 MD80
7:45pm-9:12pm AA 386 737-200
8:45pm-10:17pm AA 754 MD80
December 15, 1990:
6:45am-8:10am AA 102 737-200
7:45am-9:08am AA 584 MD80
8:45am-10:13am AA 1208 737-200
9:45am-11:14am AA 1064 MD80
10:45am-12:17pm AA 1148 737-200
11:45am-1:12pm AA 254 MD80
12:45pm-2:15pm AA 776 737-200
1:45pm-3:15pm AA 522 MD80
2:45pm-4:10pm AA 414 737-200
3:45pm-5:09pm AA 256 MD80
4:45pm-6:11pm AA 592 737-200
5:45pm-7:09pm AA 644 MD80
6:45pm-8:16pm AA 836 737-200
7:45pm-9:15pm AA 386 737-300
8:45pm-10:15pm AA 754 MD80
Hope this helps.
(Kind of odd....the 7:45pm flight seems to be the interloper on both schedules. The only 737-200 all day in the November 1, 1990 timetable and the only 737-300 in the December 15, 1990 timetable.)

hmm...would the PHX -LAX been some sort of codeshare?? I think AirCal had been totally absorbed by then.
Perhaps, you were on DL PHX-LAX? (ex WA route) as there is a tunnel from terminal 4 to 5 under the tarmac..I remember going thru it in the late 70's or early 80's a few times. Other wise I can't think of a tunnel that would have been involved with AA at LAX.

That has to be what we did, flew DL to LAX and then connected to AA using the tunnel.
