With the exception of AmericanConnection, AA
's regional operations are all owned by the AMR parent; AMR purchased these airlines and consolidated them under the Eagle name a few years ago. Meanwhile, other airlines like CO
and US have continued to partner with regional carriers such as Skywest, ACA
, Air Wisconsin, etc., branding their planes with the "express" or "connection" motto. My question: why the disparity here? Why does this work for AA
and not others? Or does it not work for AA
? Any ideas?
