How many F100s does AA still operate? When will they be replaced?

Saw one take off from HPN this morning to ORD. Just curious whether CRJ700s or ERJs will take over that route.

Their site at amrcorp.com lists 58 left, but I think there are less than that now. They're to be gone I think by end of 2005.

Any word on who might take over this large amount of planes?

I'm sure ERJ's will take over that route. Even though we are looking down the road, the CRJ's right now are confined to only DFW.

Likely all 75 will hit the desert and stay there. The huge number of AA F100's will dictate that many will likely be scrapped eventually. The majority of the 40 US Airways F100's retired in the last couple of years have yet to find homes.

Tam of Brazil is also removing its large fleet of F100's (40+) from service.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Sounds like any prospective new low-cost carrier could get a large fleet on the cheap.

The Fokker 100s life isn't over yet ! Most of the former US Airways ones have been picked up by Stork, the dutch company who took over some assets of Fokker, for 1 million dollar a piece, refurbished and leased or sold again. Germany wants 29 and left and right some small carriers will take 1 or 2. The only reason some US Fokker 100s are still in the USA is because the overhaul premises at Woensdrecht and Amsterdam are packed and filled to capacity, on this moment, after some slow years, they can't cope with the demand for heavy overhauls. Because the acquisition costs are so cheap, I am sure they will eventually find new homes.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

My understanding is that only 17 of the 40 US F100's have been placed, many with Germania. My info could be dated.

Hey Boeing757/767, Do you work at HPN or were you just passing by? I work there over the summers, just wondering.

No, just passing by on 684. I work a few miles away, though.
