Of major airlines, only JAL flies 762As anymore, and those 3 frames will be gone soon (if they aren't already).
Most 762As are stored. Most of those still in service have been converted to cargo. Except for JAL's, the few passenger examples left in service are flying for smaller operators, many in out-of-the-way places.
The HGW 752 basically made the 762A obsolete.
Edit: Looks like all 3 of JAL's 762As are now stored. So there are no major airlines left operating the type.

Most gorgeous aircraft: Tu-204-300, 757-200, A330-200, 777-200LR, 787-8
No American doesn't have any original 200 variant anymore. They had at one time a total of 30 762's including 8 non ER's which were delivered in the early to mid 80's, the rest were ER variants. The ER's were delivered in the mid to late 80's.
All of the original non ER's along with 4 ER's were parked in Roswell NM, the oldest two airframes N301AA and N302AA have been scrapped for good.
One of the ER variants was lost 9-11 when it was flying BOS-LAX as AA 011, another one was damaged beyond economical repair in LAX during the summer of 2006.
American is now left with 15 or 16 200ER's which are flown mostly on JFK-LAX and JFK-SFO transcon flights, as well as one daily JFK-MIA. Those are likely to stay a few more years, at least till the first few 787's are delivered.
