A brand new American Airlines jet landed at Corpus Christi International Airport for ground crew training today.
The "A-319" jet is ten seats fewer than the older MD-80's but it's still state of the art with many passenger amenities.
For the local airport, the new jet coming here is a good sign.
Corpus Christi is one of only 15 cities to get the new planes during the jet rollout.
The new jets are scheduled for passenger flights in and out of the airport beginning November 21st, Thanksgiving weekend..
