That's good, a change from 738s. Call me weird, but the AA 762 is one of my favorite planes, good memories of LAX-JFK and back. It seems like you can only see them LAX, SFO, JFK, MIA and now (again) BOS. I hope the AA 762 soldiers on for years to come.

This is also great news for shippers of perishable items..Fresh Herbs/Flowers/delicate fruits, etc. from California and Hawaii.
For some time now we have either had to use cnxn at ATL on DL or AA to JFK then a truck to Logan with extra handling costs and time. Hope this flight stays on next spring also for Cherries and Ultra Fancy Strawberries.

Quoting ChrisNH (Reply 3): This certainly must be in response to Song, so one might expect a similar uptick for BOS-SFO?
It has nothing to do with Song or anything else. It is a temporary aircraft reallocation and scheduling. It just so happens they had a free 762 to send in, and it scheduled in right. It is only for six weeks and the plane isn't even being sold as 3-class.

Quoting Commavia (Reply 5): No. BOS-LAX going all-757 next year, that is to compete with Song and B6, but sending a 762 on the route for less than two months, that's just prudent scheduling and resource utilizaiton.
I view the all 757s on the BOS-LAX-BOS routes as an upgrade. That is one of the reasons I always choose UA when I have to fly to LAX, I love the 757 and UA uses it on the BOS-LAX-BOS routes.
so what is the point of putting the 762 back on the BOS-LAX route for a month and a half?

Has premium demand dropped that much on the route where they only want to sell 9 seats. I would imagine the other way would work better. Sell/Upgrade 39 seats and give the 9 seats to full fare or the highest elite fliers.
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

In my opinion the best way to go to BOS-LAX-BOS is on Song since AA doesn't offer any service in the main cabin anymore, plus they have an IFE system and AA does not. Seems like an easy choice/selection to me.
