    History

    The AmericanAirlines Arena opened on December 31, 1999 and was designed by George Heinlein, Cristian Petschen, Reinaldo Borges, and Lance Simon. As part of its sponsorship arrangement, AmericanAirlines had a giant aircraft painted on top of the arena's roof, with an American Airlines logo in the center. The design is visible from airplanes taking off and landing at Miami International Airport, where American has a hub. The arena also has luxury skyboxes called "Flagship Lounges," a trademark originally used for American's premium-class lounges at certain airports. Local sportscasters often refer to the arena as the "triple-A". Some sports reporters on the local news stations have referred to the arena as "A cubed". The arena is also known for its unusual scoreboard, which changes colors depending on the atmosphere. The Miami Heat has not had to pay to use the venue, which sits on $38 million of county land; the county has paid $64 million in operating subsidies.
