A Football Club in England, Crystal Palace (nickname 'The Eagles') are currently asking fans to help
them pick a new Club badge. There are about 5 to choose from of which 2 look very close to that of
the American Airlines Group logo!!!
Its all in the early stages with the Badge to be decided on and confirmed but im sure AA may have something to say about it.
See what you think!!!!

AA freely admits that the person who originally designed the AA Eagle in the early 1930s based the eagle's design on an ad he saw for Scotland's Glen Eagles Hotel. Glen Eagles still uses a logo of an eagle, with talons extended.

If AA and the Glen Eagles Hotel have been able to share similar logos for nearly 80 years, then presumably AA, Glen Eagles, and the Crystal Palace Eagles can share similar logos, too.

The only time I recall AA charging another company with trademark infringement was in the early 1980s, when a new non-scheduled airline in the USA chose the name "American Eagle". American Eagle went bust within a year or two after its establishment, and a year or two later, AA chose the brand name American Eagle for their then-new commuter airline program, to ensure no non-AA affiliated airline could use the name American Eagle.
