North American Airlines *shurg*

Recommended Posts

How stupid can an Airline's management be?This stupid. . . http://www.airliners.net/open.file/268427/M/If you dont get what Im trying to say. Notice the name of the airline - North American.The United States, and Canada make up 'North America' But yet this airline management is so smart they put the US's flag on its planes. . . They wont last.

Incidently, they're not a North American based company. They're owned by El Al and operate charter and i believe some schedualed service to connect with El Al out of JFK. I believe it's an attempt to get around the rules prohibiting foreign carriers from operating domestic routes within the U.S. I've seen them a couple times at BDL, though i know they don't operate schedualed service from there. And yes, they've been around for a few years.-Rob

There are 3 North American Airlines.1. North American Airlines LTD. Out of Canada. Probably not the airline in the pic. Uses the callsign: NORTHAM2. North American Airlines INC. Out of New York Probably the one in the picture. Uses the callsign North American3. North American Jet Charter Group LLC. Out of Wheeling, IL, uses the callsign JET GROUP. Probably the one with ties to EL AL.And by the way Mexico is a part of North America too. And here's a thought... if the airline represented in the picture is either the IL or NY airline, the last time I checked, Both of those states are in the NORTH, of the United States of AMERICA. Just a thought though.:-outtahttp://publish.hometown.aol.com/p3superb/images/675-2fs.jpg

Odd. Well, in school (specially in my Spanish class) they treat Mexico as part of Central America.

Yeah, if you went and pulled up a couple of, random, general maps of the world, chances are you'll only find labels for North and South America. There's no such thing as Central America anymore. ;)

Central America?! :-lol no such continent I'm afraid. Continents aren't formed by boundaries, they're the tectonic plates on which we all live on. Minus India, which is its own plate, but yeah, Mexico is definitely part of North America. And as for "North American Airlines", I agree, something is wrong with their name matching their paint scheme :-rollhttp://www.monarch.net/users/Icey/gesig3.jpghttp://www.libertys.com/dra/flag_is.gif http://www.canadahomesite.com/images/canaga-flag.gifhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d94b50f443edc40.jpg

Never refered to it as a continent. I think of it more as a region. :-)Ryan-Flightpro08 :-coolVATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designer-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 29.42 WHQL Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition SP1*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

Your #3 is actually just a corporate jet charter company and FBO operator. The aircraft of my flight school were based at their Palwaukee airport FBO and headquarters while I was training. http://www.northamerican-jet.comFWIW, they are a very nice FBO. It was a pain to have the planes and FBO on the opposite site of the airport from the flight school offices, but it was nice to have the friendly NAJ greeting and the complimentary coffee in the nice terminal building lounge after a lesson. ;)

"Technically" a foreign entity cannot own over 49% of a US carrier. This is what almost sank the KLM/Northwest deal many moons ago I think.Of course lawyers can find ways around "technicalities" but to outright say El Al "owns" it is incorrect. I am sure it is operated as a code share with marketing/scheduling agreements.Not many(if any) foreign carriers have 5th freedom rights in the US. That is to say transport passengers between two cities in the United States with rights beyond.T
