This question may seem obscure, but nonetheless it has been bothering me. Does every airplane, during their career at whichever airline, visit and service ALL destinations served with their type of plane? For instance, has every AA 757 visited all destinations it serves with a 757? Or are different groups of them sanctioned off in to different geological areas? Thanks for any and all information...

Well, I think its a fair claim that with certain airlines on certain types the plane has visited every destination... given enough time, it'd have to.

But there are routes where 777s cant mix.. for example, a route requiring ETOPs can not be flown without an ETOPs certified 777, so the non-ETOPs 777 from the same airline (UA for example) will not fly the route.

Yes and no. You picked perhaps the absolute worst AA fleet type for commonality so the definitive answer for the AA B757 type is NOT A CHANCE!  Laugh out loud Only a few AA 757s are equipped for high-altitude airport ops. A few more are equipped for ETOPS and even more are equipped for "overwater ops." All can be sent to any domestic [read: North America] destination, but outside of that aircraft availability quickly goes down.

OTOH, the AA 737 fleet is [currently] totally common with all aircraft [attempted to be] maintained in the same configuration. This month's schedule realignment is [partly] designed to take advantage of this fact by having more 737s assigned to domestic [business] routes previously flown by 757s and more 757s assigned to the limited 737 international routes.
