Maybe someone out there in the hive mind know the answer to this.
On my way to and from work I take De La Cruz blvd which borders SJC and gived a great view of the runways and plane side of the terminal.
The past few days I've spotted what I think is a AA 762. The last time I saw one was when AA had a SJC-CDG flight.
Here's what I know. On Saturday 7/17 I saw it parked at A14 or A15 at around 12:30 or 12:45 pm.
I saw it again this morning parked at the apron between Terminal A and Terminal C.
I'm pretty sure it's a 767 as it looks like a cigar and not the cigarette that a 57 looks like. It also does not have RR powerplants and look more like GE. It's also been ages since I've seen a Pratt powered ex-TWA 57 in SJC.
So, is this a new regurarly scheduled service going on? I hope so, it's good to see more widebodies at SJC. I've taken the SJC-AA), Japan">NRT 777 service several times but as they say, variety is the spice of life.

Thanks for the confirmation CF-CPI.
On my drive home this evening things got even more stranger.
Parked at A1-C was from De La Cruz what looked like a AA T7. It's odd because AA129 departs at 12:45pm and AA128 arrives at 10:30am so it's unusual to see a T7 parked there in the early evening.
And according to AA's website 129 left on time today and AA 128 arrived on time. I also poked around the schedules and could not find a flight that would match. AA ended their SJC-TPE service awhile ago, same with their CDG service.
Hopefully someone can clear it up. I get antsy when I don't know what's going on at my home airport.
