  1. I wonder if this is also done for legal reasons when it comes to delayed flights, etc. Can’t point back to “American” when your flight is operated by a separate entity known as “Envoy.”

    • As far as reporting statistics go, this is true, but envoy will be like SkyWest, where they paint their planes as UAX (for example), so as far as the passenger is concerned, it is still AE.
