Without any insider knowledge, I would be my farm on the new callsign being "AMERICAN", especially with HQ remaining in Dallas.
As for the operating certificate, I can see them keeping the AA cert for "historical" purposes.

I agree the callsign is almost certain to be "American" for an airline named "American", but "Cactus" would have the advantage of brevity (only 2 syllables instead of 4) considering how congested ATC frequencies at busy airports can be.

I've heard it pronounced 'Mer'can to shorten it to two syllables.
