News reports Thursday morning are saying the plane was 13 miles off course,
and the crash may have been due to a navigational error.  This was quoting
a Colombian government air transport official.  It's too early to tell.

Better news is that (unconfirmed) there may be some survivors!  It will not
be a very merry Christmas for the families of the rest, though.

To address a topic that has been asked lately, EasySabre reports:

"The requested flight information is currently unavailable.
"For information, please call American Airlines.
"     (1-800-433-7300 in the continental U.S.)
