This airline was once called “The World’s Friendliest Airline” since the planes looked like how it smiled and was A Flag carrier of California with its hub being Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco
This Airline was Based in California and dominated there with the reputation on it for 40 years until around the late 1980s it was merged to USair which renamed us airways which merged with American Airlines in 2013
Before it was gone it had a Fleet of the MD-80s BAE 146 Family and the DC-9s
As in today many seem to forgot about it but mostly know about the Crashes of Flight 182 & 1771 (but that’s another time) and it’s almost similar to PSA Airlines as it’s a regional airline with American eagle
That’s all for today see you next time
Very interesting airline.

(Just a heads up that the US Airways-American Airlines merger was in 2013)
Being completely honest. I didn’t find out what PSA stood for until about a year ago when a DFW controller asked Bluestreak what PSA stood for. I found it kind of ironic knowing they don’t fly any pacific or southwest routes today.
Oh yeah thanks for the correction
No problem! American is just my airline 😂
Yeah AirCal had them too. I guess it was a popular CA regional jet? idk
Wish they still operated them
The snack that smiles back! Goldfish lol
aircal’s livery is one of the best ones imo
It’s so weird seeing it in the AA livery though.
CA used to have so many airlines. What happened 😭
Mergers by either American Airlines or other big U.S Airlines or just bankrupted
Yep. It’s sad.
I think AA took a few (AirCal and Reno Air)
The Reno Air livery looks cool though
If I had the money, I’d revive this airline back to ya former glory
Yeah it is no doubt about it
Yea and maybe get some 737NG (or other airbuses) to look relevant like eastern airlines did
