Hello all!

Why did American Airlines switch from a 777 to a 767 on the DFW-ZRH route? I always enjoyed those PTV's.

Probably felt it would be better served with that capacity and a two-class aircraft, shifting the three-class layout to another route where the demand for various premium tiers exists.

Great service by the way.

It's been switched for a while. I think the switch came sometime after Sept 11. Last I flew DFW-ZRH was on the 777 and that was New Years 2001.

Probably more leisure pax on DFW-ZRH than routes such as DFW-FRA, DFW-CDG and DFW-LGW. Plus, with expanded service to places like EZE, AA probably thought the 777s could be used better on other routes.


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Ok.... but the 767 (200 I believe) have a 3 class international configuration. If I remember correctly AA only has a 2 class configuration on the 763 which flies mostly domestic markets.

Fourstripe --

DFW-ZRH is a 763. The 762's are used for domestic transcon flights in markets such as JFK-LAX where there are folks willing to pay big $$ for 3-class service.

David, the 763 flies international, with a few exceptions throughout the system. The 3-class 762s are used for transcons (ie LAX-JFK). American reconfigured the 763 to a two-class to better capitalize on revenue in European markets. However, London still gets 777s as it is considered a premium market.
