McDonnell Douglas and AMR / American Airlines --- an agreement?

Does anyone know about a rumored agreement being discussed between
McDonnell Douglas and AMR/American Airlines about a contract for an
American built (Fokker 70 style) of aircraft?

It has been said that American is thinking about creating their own
"Airline within an Airline" type operation and the aircraft they would
be using would be an aircraft smaller, yet American made, to be used
in its marketing strategy.

What's the case?  Does anyone have any knowledge of the (McDonnell
Douglas/AMR) issue described?
