Never seen an American MD-80 at SJU before yesterday, January 11th. It was parked backwards, tail towards the terminal, I believe by gate 3 or 4. The only picture I was able to get was from my hotel balcony, and is just too far to make out a registration. On our taxi out, 3 PM or so local, it was still there. Anyone have any information about what it was doing there?

Don't know why that particular aircraft is there, but I remember when TWA started bringing MD-80s into SJU when they were building their focus city there. Used to get 1 from STL and it would continue on to one of the Caribbean islands. Parked next to our inbound 762, which was an upguage from the scheduled 757 from JFK.

Ah, SJU in the good old days...

It is N292AA, that was ferried TUL-SJU on 06JAN because it has been donated to a school down there.
