UA flies intl configured aircraft domestically all the time. Usually on the following city pairs
ORD IAD ORD 767-300 777-200 (some times they schedule a 747-400)
ORD DEN ORD 777-200 767-300 (and the 747-400 in Ski season)
ORD SFO ORD 777-200 747-400 767-300
ORD LAX ORD 767-300 747-400 (usually gets the 777-200 when the 747 goes to DEN in the winter)
ORD SEA 777-200
IAD DEN IAD 777-200 767-300 (occasionally they slip in a 747-400)
IAD SFO IAD 777-200 767-300 (occasionally they slip in a 747-400)
IAD LAX IAD 777-200 767-300 747-400
DEN SFO DEN 777-200 767-300 (usually gets 747-400 for ski season)
DEN LAX DEN 767-300 777-200 (usually gets 747-400 for ski season)
SEA DEN 777-200
LAX JFK LAX 767-300
SFO JFK SFO 767-300
****just as a note some aircraft above also have domestic configurations that also operate on those routes but all routes above have at least one intl configured aircraft of that type on each route named****
I could be wrong but I think AA dose now or use to operate a 777 from ORD to DFW.

Your question needs a bit more elaboration. If you mean international fleet doing domestic sectors, Air India, Pakistan International, Thai International all fly a lot of domestic sectors with their international fleet. But if you mean product standard-wise, then I'd say, try Jet Airways or Air Sahara (predominantly domestic carriers within India) if you want to see what international standards in terms of inflight service truly means.

In parts of the world outside the US where there sometimes is a border and a new country/culture/language every couple of kilometers, you can see two distinct cases:
1) domestic config = international config
This is the case for LH, LX, TK, MH and also for Air France's domestic flights from CDG, that all have C class when operated by Airbus or 737, which is not the case for the domestic flights operated from ORY (only Y).
2) domestic config = intercontinental config
- Air France sometimes schedules 747-400 (no kidding) for flights between Paris and Corsica. But this happens only at super peaks, i.e. start or end of vacation period.
- Iberia (on the BCN-MAD-BCN and on MAD-Canary Islands, as mentioned above)
- Qantas, using 747-400s on SYD-MEL and SYD-BNE
- South African, using 747s and 340s on CPT-DUR
- Saudia using 747s and 777s on domestic routes, primarily to/from JED and RUH
- Garuda on CGK-DPS with 747-400s and A330-300s
- Thai on BKK-HKT and BKK-CNX
- Malaysia on KUL-Kota Kinabalu
- Air China, where I have taken an intercont. configured 747-400 on PEK-Shanghai. I am sure there are many more routes within China
- is China/Hong Kong domestic? If yes, then all the CX and KA flights have the same config on domestic traffic and in international/intercont. traffic

No Delta 767-400 is in international config...it's all standard domestic F.
AA has a daily 777 running between DFW and LAX...I could have booked them (and probably should have in hindsight) for my trip to LAX in 10 days, but I instead chose to go DL (partially because the return flight better suited my needs).
