This is just for fun.

As we all know AA is slowly retiring their MD-80s. I often wondered when and what route AA's last MD80 flight will be.

My prediction:

July 31, 2019
ORD-DFW

Your prediction?

DL/NW was supposed to retire their DC-9s before 2006. Now they will be flying around in 2013. In other words: you cannot predict this so long in advance.

Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

Why was the MD-80 getting a water salute at LAX? It wasn't the first or last AA MD-80 flight so not sure of the occasion.

My guess would be a pilot retirement.

Unlikely, considering the last flight of the day gets into DFW at around 8:00 pm, depending on the season.

I suspect a ORD-DFW flight is a good bet. There is at least one flight that gets in right around, or slightly after midnight.

Other options might be LAX-DFW or SFO-DFW.

Cheers,
Cameron
