What appeared to be a commercial airliner just flew over on final approach to Lindbergh Field, San Diego. Its logo was AIA. The livery was fairly colorful.
However, I checked the various airline company indexes and failed to find
an airline carrying the name AIA. Could this be a private executive aircraft?
It appeared to be either a twin engine airbus or a very late model 737 with winglets.

thank you.

On the button dazed 767! ATA is correct...photos's never lie Smile/happy/getting dizzy The aircraft
passed almost directly overhead so I didn't see the "crossing of the T" .

Thanks for your help. I really very much appreciate it. I would not have slept
tonight trying to figure out the company.

Best,

Mac

Just a little off the topic here, AIA or Atlantic International Airlines was the airline used in the movie Passenger 57 w/ Wesley Snipes. The A/C was an L1011. It was flying from MIA-LAX.

There actually was an airline called "American International Airlines" but I think it went belly up a few years ago... May still exist as chartered cargo.
