Wow. I wonder if this means that there will be NO American MD-90s? Frankly,
I was surprised that I didn't see American with MD-90s already, given the
size of their MD-8x fleet.

I've lost track recently, how well is the MD-90 doing, both in terms of
sales and in terms of service? My last datapoint was a discussion here
after I got stuck in DFW till the wee hours of the morning because *2*
Delta MD-90's were unable to depart for my flight due to mechanical
trouble. A third one got me home at 4 AM...
