From the Air Canada Stores Parts & Pieces magazine issue September 1990.

PWA Corp. the owners of Canadian Airlines International had a very sweet deal going with American Airlines, a deal that could have given them a windfall profit of some $380 million; Really big bucks without too much effort.

You see PWA Corp. had sold its rights for the purchase of two (much sought after) Boeing 747-400s, to American Airlines. American really needed those two planes in a hurry.

Alas, it was not to be... a precondition to the sale of the rights, was that American get the nod to fly to Tokyo from wild and windy Chicago. In a surprise judgement by Justice John Mathias of the US Department of Transport, the application for the lucrative Chicago-Tokyo route was shot down in flames. The airline favoured for that route was United. Better luck next time.
