The Class A Certificates will be deemed to be purchased on the date payment of the purchase price is made notwithstanding the failure of any Class A Certificateholder to deliver any Class A Certificate and, upon such a purchase, (i) the Class A Certificateholders shall have no further rights with respect to the Class A Certificates and (ii) if the purchaser(s) shall so request, each such Class A Certificateholder will comply with all the provisions of Section 3.04 of the Basic Agreement and the applicable provisions of this Trust Supplement to enable new Class A Certificates to be issued to the purchaser(s) in such denominations otherwise authorized under this Agreement as it shall request. All charges and expenses in connection with the issuance of any such new Class A Certificates shall be borne by the purchaser(s) thereof.

(b) This Section 6.01 supplements and, to the extent inconsistent with any provision of Section 6.01(d) of the Basic Agreement, replaces the provisions of Section 6.01(d) of the Basic Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein or in any Operative Agreement, the provisions of this Section 6.01 may not be amended in any manner without the consent of each Class A Certificateholder, Class B Certificateholder and Additional Certificateholder or, as the case may be, Refinancing Certificateholder (in each case, other than the Company or any of its Affiliates in its respective capacity as a Certificateholder) that would be adversely affected thereby; provided that the purchase price under this Section 6.01 (as in effect on the date hereof) for any Certificate held by the Company or any of its Affiliates shall not be modified without the prior written consent of the Company. For the avoidance of doubt, if a Certificate Buy-Out Event ceases to exist and another Certificate Buy-Out Event occurs and is continuing, the purchase rights set forth in Section 6.01(a) shall be revived notwithstanding any exercise of such rights during the continuance of any preceding Certificate Buy-Out Event.

Agreement are superseded by any provisions of this Trust Supplement, any reference to such provisions of the Basic Agreement herein or in the Basic Agreement shall be deemed to be such provisions of this Trust Supplement.

Section 9.03 Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT HAS BEEN DELIVERED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND THIS AGREEMENT AND THE CLASS A CERTIFICATES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, INCLUDING ALL MATTERS OF CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY AND PERFORMANCE.

Section 9.05 Intention of Parties.

Each Certificateholder of, and each Person acquiring a beneficial interest in, a Class A Certificate, by its acceptance of its Class A Certificate or a beneficial interest therein, agrees to treat the Class A Trust as a grantor trust for all United States federal, state and local income tax purposes. The Trustee shall not be authorized or empowered to do anything that would cause the Class A Trust to fail to qualify as a grantor trust for such tax purposes (including as subject to this restriction, acquiring any Aircraft by bidding the Equipment Notes relating thereto or otherwise, or taking any action with respect to any such Aircraft once acquired).

AA Aircraft EETC


The Certificates represent Fractional Undivided Interests in the Trust and the Trust Property, and will have no rights, benefits or interest in respect of any other separate trust established pursuant to the terms of the Basic Agreement for any other series of certificates issued pursuant thereto.

Subject to and in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the Intercreditor Agreement, from funds then available to the Trustee, there will be distributed on each April 15 and October 15 (each, a "Regular Distribution Date"), commencing on April 15, 2012, to the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered at the close of business on the 15th day preceding the Regular Distribution Date, an amount in respect of the Scheduled Payments on the Series A Equipment Notes due on such Regular Distribution Date, the receipt of which has been confirmed by the Trustee, equal to the product of the percentage interest in the Trust evidenced by this Certificate and an amount equal to the sum of such Scheduled Payments. Subject to and in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the Intercreditor Agreement, in the event that Special Payments on the Series A Equipment Notes are received by the Trustee, from funds then available to the Trustee, there shall be distributed on the applicable Special Distribution Date, to the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered at the close of business on the 15th day preceding the applicable Special Distribution Date, an amount in respect of such Special Payments on the Series A Equipment Notes, the receipt of which has been confirmed by the Trustee, equal to the product of the percentage interest in the Trust evidenced by this Certificate and an amount equal to the sum of such Special Payments so received. If a Regular Distribution Date or Special Distribution Date is not a Business Day, distribution shall be made on the immediately following Business Day and no interest shall accrue during the intervening period. The Trustee shall mail notice of each Special Payment and the Special Distribution Date therefor to the Certificateholder of this Certificate.

Distributions on this Certificate will be made by the Trustee by check mailed to the Person entitled thereto, without the presentation or surrender of this Certificate or the making of any notation hereon, except that with respect to Certificates registered on the Record Date in the name of a Clearing Agency (or its nominee), such distributions shall be made by wire transfer. Except as otherwise provided in the Agreement and notwithstanding the above, the final distribution on this Certificate will be made after notice mailed by the Trustee of the pendency of such distribution and only upon presentation and surrender of this Certificate at the office or agency of the Trustee specified in such notice.

The Certificates do not represent a direct obligation of, or an obligation guaranteed by, or an interest in, the Company, the Trustee, the Subordination Agent, any Loan Trustee or any Affiliate of any thereof. The Certificates are limited in right of payment, all as more specifically set forth on the face hereof and in the Agreement. All payments or distributions made to Certificateholders under the Agreement shall be made only from the Trust Property and only to the extent that the Trustee shall have sufficient income or proceeds from the Trust Property to make such payments in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. Each Certificateholder of this Certificate, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that it will look solely to the income and proceeds from the Trust Property to the extent available for any payment or distribution to such Certificateholder pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and that it will not have any recourse to the Company, the Trustee, the Loan Trustees or any Affiliate of any thereof except as otherwise expressly provided in the Agreement, in any Note Document or in the

Trust Supplement No. 2011-2A

Intercreditor Agreement. This Certificate does not purport to summarize the Agreement and reference is made to the Agreement for information with respect to the interests, rights, benefits, obligations, proceeds and duties evidenced hereby. A copy of the Agreement may be examined during normal business hours at the principal office of the Trustee, and at such other places, if any, designated by the Trustee, by any Certificateholder upon request.

The Agreement permits, with certain exceptions therein provided, the amendment thereof, and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Certificateholders under the Agreement, at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Certificateholders holding Certificates evidencing Fractional Undivided Interests aggregating not less than a majority in interest in the Trust. Any such consent by the Certificateholder of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding on such Certificateholder and upon all future Certificateholders of this Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent is made upon this Certificate. The Agreement also permits the amendment thereof, in certain limited circumstances, without the consent of the Certificateholders of any of the Certificates.

As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Certificate is registrable in the Register upon surrender of this Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies maintained by the Trustee in its capacity as Registrar, or by any successor Registrar, duly endorsed or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Trustee and the Registrar, duly executed by the Certificateholder hereof or such Certificateholder's attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Fractional Undivided Interest in the Trust will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.

The Certificates are issuable only as registered Certificates without coupons in minimum denominations of $2,000 (or such other denomination that is the lowest integral multiple of $1,000 that is, at the time of issuance, equal to at least 1,000 euros) Fractional Undivided Interest and multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof except that one Certificate may be issued in a different denomination. As provided in the Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the Certificates are exchangeable for new Certificates of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate Fractional Undivided Interest in the Trust, as requested by the Certificateholder surrendering the same.

No service charge will be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Trustee shall require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

The Company, the Trustee, the Registrar and any Paying Agent shall deem and treat the Person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Company, the Trustee, the Registrar or any such agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

Trust Supplement No. 2011-2A

Each Certificateholder and Person with a beneficial interest herein, by its acceptance of this Certificate or such interest, agrees to treat the Trust as a grantor trust for all U.S. federal, state and local income tax purposes.

The obligations and responsibilities created by the Agreement and the Trust created thereby shall terminate upon the distribution to Certificateholders of all amounts required to be distributed to them pursuant to the Agreement and the disposition of all property held as part of the Trust Property.

Any Person acquiring or accepting this Certificate or an interest herein will, by such acquisition or acceptance, be deemed to represent and warrant to the Company, the Loan Trustees and the Trustee that either: (i) no assets of a Plan or any trust established with respect to a Plan, have been used to acquire this Certificate or an interest herein or (ii) the purchase and holding of this Certificate or interest herein by such Person are exempt from the prohibited transaction restrictions of ERISA and the Code or materially similar provisions of Similar Law pursuant to one or more prohibited transaction statutory or administrative exemptions.

THIS CERTIFICATE AND THE AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, INCLUDING ALL MATTERS OF CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY AND PERFORMANCE.
