AA has planned its final revenue Fokker 100 flight on September 8th as AA2573 departing White Plains at 0933 and arriving at O'Hare at 1033, subject to change will there be any ceremony?
will be sad to see the F100 leaving AA

Just rode on N1414D, an F-100, this weekend from ORD-XNA and back. Great flights. As for a ceremony, not sure. If it were UA retiring an aircraft fleet, they'd sweep it under the rug and mention it to their employees 2 weeks after the event.

Well if you ever feel the need to fly them again give it a few years and Jetsgo will own all of the ex-AA fleet.

Is there going to be a ceremony for the F 100 leaving it was like a huge deal for Delta's L101's.

I think is a shame for AA to retire their Fokker 100.
This are reliable aircraft, good for not too long routes with high demand, I think that they need to update their Md's with the new project of Boeing, the Boeing 717-300.
What a good aircraft that leaves the American air space.

cheers'

Some of them were sold to Helvetic.

Thank God! Those were horrible little beasts!
Cramped, noisy--and no overhead space.

I've never found the affection for this aircraft---it's one of the few I actually actively avoided (which is very tough when connecting out of DFW).

So let me get this straight, N1414D will operate the last AA F-100 flight? Or has the particular registration for the last flight been decided on yet? Please help Big grin

Not sure which a/c will be operating the final flight. I was just saying I was able to ride a Fokker for probably the last time.

Actually the F100 is very quiet compared to it's peers. I miss that airplane, but it's hard (and expensive) to support an orphan a/c type.

When the last 727 was retired two years ago, I was on the very final flight TPA-MIA and there was a ceremony at the gate with speeches from pilots and AA executives. There was also a cake offered to passengers riding on the last 727.
So yes, the same thing could happen at O'Hare when the last Fokker aircraft pulls into the gate. Not only it will be the final flight of a Fokker at AA, it will be also the last flight of a Fokker aircraft in the United States. US Airways also retired it's last Fokker, Midway is gone, I don't know if America West still has Fokkers. Most of American's 100's went to JetsGo in Canada and Helvetic in Switzerland, although quite a few are parked in the desert.

And when the final is finnaly gone, what will we see to replace them?Maybe some E190´s, since AA has a good relationship with Embraer and it´s ERJ-145´s??Maybe some A-318´s??

Any toughts?

Have a nice day U all

Forget about the 318s. I would be shocked if AA bought from Airbus. I think the E190 or CRJ900 is likely though.

I flew a Fokker from AMS to TXL and back recently, and apart from the 2x3 seating arrangment, I thought that they were very good. The original regional jets. It will be sad to see them go. But it's cool that the last flight will be operating from my home airport (HPN).

...So, I counted my last trip to HPN as my official last F-100 trip, however, since I'm going back to HPN/NYC next weekend, I'm debating whether or not just go to LGA(ER3), save the hassle of backtracking to ORD (from DTW), or do a few more F-100 trips DTW-(738)ORD-(100)HPN-(100)ORD-DTW(S80).

Decisions...!
