Background Information

Beggining

On the morning of April 15, 1926, a young aviator named Charles A. Lindbergh created American Airlines.

Middle

At the end of 1959 and into the early 1960s, American Airlines, teaming up with IBM, introduced and implemented SABRE (Semi-Automated Business Research Environment), the largest electronic data processing system for business use. By 1964, the SABRE network extended from coast to coast and from Canada to Mexico. It became the largest real-time data processing system, second only to the U.S. government's SAGE system.

Now

In 2011, American continued to expand its partnerships with other airlines in addition to enhancing its joint businesses and its participation in the oneworld® alliance.
