Oh, the -ops in the URL threw me off. Your link is to the attribution page
for flightstats.com, not American Airlines. And flightstats.com is serving
up their own tiles. They started using OSM back in 2011 or 2012 when Google
started charging for maps. Wm Leler from flightstats.com presented at the
2012 SOTM-US conference in Portland. Links to the presentation are on the
wiki:
