American's early liveries varied widely, but a common livery was adopted in the 1930s, featuring an eagle painted on the fuselage. The eagle became a symbol of the company and inspired the name of American Eagle Airlines. Propeller aircraft featured an international orange lightning bolt running down the length of the fuselage, which was replaced by a simpler orange stripe with the introduction of jets.
We created one set of these components for phones (iOS and Android), and adapted them to tablet sizes from there. Tablet components are largely the same as those for mobile, and on a technical level the code only needs to exist once in two different styles. With this system components can vary in their look and positioning, similarly to the way responsive design works for web. Designers can then design a screen once using common components, and it can be easily adapted to different screen sizes as well as to iOS and Android.
American Airlines was founded in 1926 as a mail carrier with its first flight by Charles Lindbergh. Eight years later, the company switched revenue sources from mail to passengers and has since grown through various mergers with other airlines. Today, American Airlines operates out of ten hubs located from shore to shore in the United States, with its main headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Other hubs include Charlotte, Chicago-O'Hare, Philadelphia, Miami, Phoenix-Sky Harbor, Washington, DC-National, Los Angeles, New York-JFK, and New York-LaGuardia.

To help fund the site, the founders created special edition breakfast cereals, with presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain as the inspiration for "Obama O's" and "Cap'n McCains". In two months, 800 boxes of cereal were sold at $40 each, which generated more than $30,000 for the company's incubation. It also got the company noticed by computer programmer Paul Graham, who invited the founders to the January 2009 winter training session of his startup incubator, Y Combinator, which provided them with training and $20,000 in funding in exchange for a small interest in the company. With the website already built, they used the $20,000 Y-Combinator investment to fly to New York City to meet users and promote the site. They returned to San Francisco with a profitable business model to present to West Coast investors. By March 2009, the site had 10,000 users and 2,500 listings.
