What is the point of the beetle in the chocks and the livery parked at the gate? the craziest thing to show up at a gate since the Shorts 360!

Apparently you didn't get the memo, AA can't afford there planes anymore so they are replacing them with VW's because they can save on gas.

Its a lot less boxy than a Shorts 360. If they wanted a car like a Shorts 360, they should get a K car.

What bothers me is that this is definetly an AA vehicle, but it doesn't have light-emitting warning beacon (the yellow rotating/flashing light) visible, and is obviously not under escort.

Anyone want to bet this is how Don Carty "visits" the guys on the ground?

It was a promo that was going on. I remember when it came to DTW, we got to shoot hoops on the ramp for prizes and tour the car. Sort of like an employee spirit day (the car toured many stations).
