In order to service the American people, 82 smaller airlines joined together in 1930 to form an Airline company, by name American Airways. The popularity of this service stretched all over the country, and people fondly called the Air Service as "AA". In 1934 the ownership changed hands, and it was renamed as "American Airlines" (still retaining the nickname AA). During the postwar period, the Air Service grew in size to operate national and international flights, and to connect world destinations. During this time, many acquisitions, mergers and takeovers of Airline Companies, big and small, took place. Flight services to other European and Asian countries necessitated expansion of the company's fleet, and so prominent Airline Services that were operating in those countries were inducted, to make the size of American Airlines bigger and bigger. Notable acquisitions among them are – Trans World Airlines; US Airways; Air California and Reno Air.
