Does anyone know why there was a AA763 at SAN. I saw it depart around 1pm today? According to the timetable there are no 763's flying in or out of SAN, not even to JFK. I have to say it was a very pleasant surprise

Seems to have been an equipment sub from the regular B757. It operated AA1675/1918 DFW-SAN-DFW.

Wow, I'm surprised it subbed for a flight to DFW, usually SAN will see the rare 763 on the later flight to/from JFK... Here's the Flytecomm info below:

Remaining Flight Time 00:00

I'm glad to see SAN is seeing some heavies (besides the normal), hopefully AA will schedule a 767 on one of it's SAN routes in the future...

My first 767 flight was on American DFW-SAN back in 1984.

We got a 767 in Denver a couple of months ago, but it was a JFK-LAX diversion. That's about as close as we are going to get to non-DL/UA 767 service.

I remember seeing AA76s fly into SAN back in 1988 or so when I was on vacation out there.

No more gates = larger aircraft. This will be a regular thing with mainline without a new airport and airfield capacity for only an additional 15 gates. It's the only way to grow and still maximize hub connections. Brutal for a flexible pavement runway.

United once substituted a 763 for a 757 on the Dulles to San Diego route. Do American and United in San Diego have to borrow a cargo loader and dollies from Delta or Hawaiian in order to off load and load the containers containing the luggage? Or, do they each have the equipment available for these contingencies?

Oh I think that they still have equipments available for these contingencies. Because American has flown the B767-300 into SAN for a long time, last year, they still had a flight JFK-SAN on the 763. But yes, it's true that there is no more AA763 coming to SAN, it might come back if a need to add an extra JFK-SAN flight is justified. Other than that, Super 80 and 757 are the only two mainline equipment American operates in SAN.
Do they really need a different cargo loader for each type of aircraft? As long as it can carry an LD3 container, it can work for several aircraft. I mention LD3 because it's the container most commonly seen. I'm not sure the 757 takes any, maybe it does, but I do know the 767 does.

The 757 does not carry containerized cargo and/or bags. Only widebodies do. The most common container for the 767 is an LD 2. But LD 3's can be used, too...though only one row of them on the left side of the aircraft.. Most cargo loaders can handle all types of containers, though the 763 requires a wider loader to unload certain large pallets (PMCs) from the front cargo hold.

Bags? You mean bags/luggage? I guess on my ORD-SNA (752) AA shipped it out on FX.  Smile

Read it over once again. He said containerized bags...meaning bags loaded into a container which is loaded onto the aircraft.  Wink
