Help With Plane And Airline

Sun Jul 21, 2002 7:34 am

I was looking at the "rate a buddy" on AOL today and I came upon this picture. What airline is this and what plane?

It looks like a Delta 737 to me. What do you think?

Greetings

The hat looks like it has American's Eagle logo, the panel looks to be a 727. I'd say it's American.

Regards

Yep, that's a 727, and it's AA's logo on the hat.

I'm sure it's American Airlines. You can see the eagle insignia very clearly on the hat!

It is definatly American Airlines. The question is weather its a 732 or a 727. It's probably a 727 mainly because the ratio of 727's to 732's that AA flew at the time is no comparison. Why does it matter anyway?
