The American Airlines AAdvantage Program is turning forty years old; it was introduced in May 1981.
I'm sure we all remember the introduction of the AAdvantage Program, whether you worked in Reservations, Passenger Sales, or Airport Services. I was part of LAX Sales back then.
15 years later, in May 1996, I had the distinct honor of being the Project Manager @ HDQ to create the Requirements and Implement the ELECTRONIC UPGRADE PROGRAM for Advantage Members. When Electronic Upgrades were introduced, AAdvantage STICKERS became a thing of the past. No more peeling them from booklets and pasting them on flight coupons. I was back at DFW Airport when Electronic Upgrade Program was released, and it was a flawless implementation of the "STICKERLESS" Program.
Bob Crandall absolutely loved the AAdvantage program, it created the best brand of customer loyalty for AA along with all of us providing the best customer service in the entire airline industry.

Retirees will receive 9/11 Commemorative lapel pins.
To all who served American Airlines on Sept. 11, thank you for your service!
The CR Smith Museum will distribute the 9/11 commemorative lapel pin to retirees! There is NO charge for the Pin, however, there is a $5.00 shipping and processing fee.
For the 20th anniversary, American Airlines joined with United Airlines to create a special lapel pin to honor the lives and legacies of our colleagues, family members, and loved ones we lost. These pins are being worn throughout the airline operation during the month of September as a reminder to both team members and customers of all that was sacrificed that day.
ORDERING INFORMATION ~~~~~
Retirees of American Airlines and its wholly-owned subsidiaries are also able to order a commemorative 9/11 pin now through November 30 for $5 (to cover shipping and processing costs) via the C.R. Smith Museum website.
Pins will begin to ship the first week of October and will take 10-14 business days to arrive.
The American Airlines CR Smith Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and delivers life-changing educational programs while preserving and celebrating the heritage of American Airlines and its people.
On this day in 2001, nineteen (19) militants associated with the terrorist group al-Qaeda hijacked four planes in the United States and attacked the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, PA after passengers defended it against the hijackers.
The PENTAGON. What you may not know is that on September 11, 1941, 60 years earlier on this same day, construction began on the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.
It is one of the largest office buildings in the world, and it is the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense, including the ARMY, NAVY, and the AIR FORCE.
