Just downloaded the AA timetable effective October 9 and noticed that AA will be flying the 777 on this route starting December 16. Yes!

As far as I can tell, yes. Well, actually they are 3 domestic routes that AA is using the 777 on, since there are 2 roundtripst per day on the DFW--MIA-DFW route.

Looks to me like instead of having the 777 sit around MIA all day after arriving early in the AM from South America, they're sending it up to JFK and back. The return from JFK should arrive in plenty of time for the late night (11pm or so) flight back down to South America where the cycle starts all over again.

Dont forget the DFW-ORD-DFW midday 777 flight, AA066 and AA067. Leaves DFW at 2:00pm and returns in the evening. This domestic widebody flight has existed for a long time. It originally was flt 2248 and 2351 on the return to DFW. Previously it was a MD11 flight, then became a 777 a few years ago. A fun domestic fling (fling, not flight) on the 777 !!!!!

I just checked - looks like they are only selling First and Coach on these flights, which means if you are lucky, you'll end up with a seat in the biz cabin with 60" pitch and those fully reclining chairs.

I had the pleasure of experiencing one of these during a DFW-MIA flight back in September. Very nice indeed!

NWflt- good memory on the flt #'s. Often times a DC-10 would be used instead of the MD-11.

AA used to have a mid day flight from DFW to Nashville on the DC-10. That was always an awesome flight as it was barely full and lots of turns for landing in Nashville. Those were the days.

That's good news. But if I fly JFK-MIA, I would rather pick the Airbus A300 because I know that one will be gone much sooner than the 777 will be, and I haven't flown in one for a long time. I've only flown twice on those with American in my life. It's much harder to get an A300 (unless you live in MIA) than it is to get a 777. I would choose the A300 over any Boeing type if I fly on that route.

Yes, that flight will be sold as two-class service like it has always been on the DFW-ORD flight. I flew on a Boeing 777 five years ago, just when the type was introduced at American, from DFW to ORD and I had a business class seat for the price of coach and without even using upgrades! You are seated in a business class seat but you are treated the same way as if you were seated in the coach cabin.
My understanding is that there are now 4 domestic routes on the 777:
DFW-LAX, DFW-ORD, DFW-MIA and now MIA-JFK.

I'm wondering why they don't introduce a 3-Class 777 on the JFK-LAX flight, that flight used to be flown with the DC-10 for many years, so why not introducing the 777? Out of the 8 daily JFK-LAX flights which are 767-200's, one or two should be a 777 because the Boeing 777 is the flagship aircraft at American Airlines and also because JFK-LAX sees high load factors, a route flown mostly by business men. The 3-Class 777 should be scheduled on the red-eye LAX-JFK flight.

Airliner777, I don't think AA even sends 763s down to BOG/Colombia at all, I am pretty sure it's just the 752s much less the 772.

AA has daily 763 service on MIA-BOG. They have flown this flight for years.

Actually Ben there are 11 daily JFK-LAX flights and I agree with you. Eventually, the 762's will be gone and a replacement aircraft will be needed. I would love for AA to use 777's on the route, but, I think it they might just use a couple of 763's and turn them into a 3 class aircraft, like what United is doing to 13 of their 757's for the JFK-LAX & JFK-SFO flights.

Why doesnt AA fly the 777 on some big domestic routes? I was on ORD-LAX last night(763) and the flight was oversold along with all the flights that day to LAX. They fly 2 763s to and from LAX. LAX-ORD in the morning and then ORD-LAX in the afternoon early evening. If they fly DFW-LAX-DFW why not fly ORD-LAX-ORD? One can only dream though.....

From what I've read here on a.net (and it seems to make sense to me), when AA assigns a 777 to a domestic route, it is usually because they want to get a little more use out of the plane instead of having it sit on the ground for 8+ hours waiting for it's next international flight.

And, of course, they'll assign it on a route that will have a high demand.

Greetings all,

Sometime recently, AA told us that the A300's were going to be going in for some very heavy cabin maintenance/refurbishment this fall. It makes me think that the 777 might be substituting for the A300 while this maintenance is being accomplished. Just a thought.

That would be nice, as I usually end up on an A300 either coming or going to JFK or EWR from MIA (well, looks like EWR won't see the A300 this Winter at all unfortunately).

If you are treated the same in Biz as coach, are the meals the same too? Plus, on a flight just over 2 hours, would the PTV's be turned on? I don't know if AA offers movies on flights to Florida like CO does.

I have flown AA many time from MIA to LGA and they do not offer movies, at least not in the 752's...only CBS Eye on American programming is shown.
I think the flight has to be longer than a certain amount of time for a movie to be shown. I flew MIA-SFO twice last month on AA and they showed both a movie and CBS Eye on American.

AA had a movie on their MIA-DFW flight (the 4:25pm departure) when I took it back in August.

I of course watched the inflight tracker TV channel.  Smile

Kanebear, MAH4546:

Thank you for your replies. I knew about the B763 flying to BOG, but I've seen the noon T7 takeoff and fly southwards, that's why I was asking. That should be the ORD flight then.

Thanks!  Big grin

I just pulled availability for MIA-BOG tomorrow the 12th, no prob. Everybody is right on this one. The AM flight is a 763 and the two afternoon flts are 757s.
