This is the letter that came with the AA record below. One side of the record is the original "We're American Airlines Doing What We Do Best" full jingle. The other side of the record is a message from Bob Crandall introducing the new AA advertising campaign which premiered on March 17, 1975. In the message Mr. Crandall says that the heart of AA is the people who work for the company. That's why in all the commercials there are real employees not actors and that we have to keep "doing what we do best".
