I tend to agree with you, CopperOne. American ended up operating between 64 & 67 DC-10s. Even today I'm still trying to find a accurate count for AA's DC-10 fleet. I do know for a fact AA bought/operated 35 first-tier DC-10-10s...the balance being pre-owned. Personally, and this before the 777 was introduced... I think the DC-10 was 'the' flagship aircraft for American. To this day, the DC-10 is still a majestic bird. Regards.

When booking my flight from Singapore to Los Angeles last year, I was going to booking just about any airline except Northwest Airlines . . . until I realised that NW operates a DC-10 between Singapore and Tokyo-Narita. I flew NW for the first time.
And in the process, my love for the DC-10 was re-affirmed and I truly enjoyed the inflight service on three out of four sectors.
Only regret is I've only fly the DC-10s of four airlines - Japan Airlines, Garuda, Malaysia AL and Northwest Airlines.
