I just got of a cruise the week of January 7th thru the 15th, went with friends from my colleges. (The Universities I attended, 3 in all)(Funny term my colleges) Anyway talking with many of the professors and alumni we noticed how perfect the 7E7 would be for SJU. Taking a poll of those on the ship and how they got there was very interesting. The 7E7-3 would provide just the right amount of passengers from the states, and the 7E7-8 would be able to add Europe and Asia. The cruise industry may start the point to point system Boeing claims will happen. Miami would also be the same. What are your thoughts.

As soon as AA has the money for an order, they are a lock to replace the A300-600R with the 7E8/3/9 or some combo there of to SJU

Delta could use it also to pull directly from their hubs ATL, CDG, and SLC. Delta has many flights each day up to 7 from ATL and JFK. ALL either 767 or 757. I also saw many AA 757 at SJU. (I believe 6 at the same time)

If they make it.

Which would likely not be replaced, as they suit a different purpose

AA has the money to order them. They have over $3B in cash reserves. They are not, however, in a healthy financial state to spend that money.

Though rumours are suggesting that AA may order 7E7s within the next 12 months for delivery in 2009/2010. Since there is almost no cost to securing orders, AA will simply be holding their place on the order line, expecting that by 2009/2010, they will be in better financial state.

What was unique was the fact that all flights to SJU were 767 or smaller. (There was a 747 Polar Cargo plane) Also notice the same trend in Miami just not as limited as SJU. The same trend is happening throughout the Caribbean.

That is being burned by losses. They also don't exactly have the best credit right now considering their debt load

>They are not, however, in a healthy financial state to spend that money.<

And they wont be till they at least break even, which has been nearly half a decade

Would JAL and ANA use the 7E7 for direct flights from NRT to the Caribbean?

Not at all likely

Am I the only person crazy enough to believe that the 7E7-300 (or is it just the 7E7-3) would be a PERFECT replacement for the American A300-600's?

You would be surprised of the amount of Asians on cruise whom spent up to 30+ hours in travel time to be there.

I'm sure there's a decent amount. Which is why the 7E7 will be great to open up NRT-MIA service. From there, traveling between Asia and the Caribbean gets a lot easier. No NRT-SJU or NRT-MBJ is starting any time soon.

There is enough traffic to do it now, with a 777 or even 747. They just have other places to use the slots
