American has 77 737-800s which were all delivered between 1999 and 2001 and mostly replaced the aging 727s.

I believe there is also a 737 crew base in MIA.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Los Angeles
Bay Area
Dallas
Chicago
St. Louis
Miami
New York Area
Boston
Washington DC

Eagle also has a base in San Juan Puerto Rico

IIRC, Miami has the largest 738 crew base.

There are also crew bases in Lima, Buenos Aires, and, I believe, Santiago de Chile.

Quoting MD90fan (Reply 4):

Crew bases are technically in regions, not airports, so it is a Bay Area crew base. It is referred to as the San Francisco crew base, usually. Similiarly, Delta has a "Miami crew base", even though most of their flying is done out of FLL.

Yes, AA has installed winglets on 1 738 as a test to decide if they are going to expand them to other 737s.

- It sure looks nice with winglets. Have AA come up with a verdict on if they like them or not? How long ago did they put them on this plane?

Absolutely. For example, the crew based in SFO bid flights out of SFO, SJC and OAK. There was talk of opening a SFO satellite base in SMF but those plans are on hold.

The RDU base is for flight attendants only. They only fly the RDU-LGW route. There is no pilot base there.

Delta no longer has a MIA base. Their bases are ATL(domestic & Int'l); JFK (Int'l only); LGA (Shuttle); CVG; SLC; LAX (domestic & Hawaii)

Been looking at these boards long enough I figure it's about time I'll open up and say something...AA convinced the owner of the 738 to put the winglets on, and AA had them paid for and everything directly by the owner, so they are seeing how they work out for them and all. The winglets are tricky on their 738's though, because additional modifications need made to the wing itself, I can't remember though, I believe it has something to do with the wing is not actually strong enough around the root and flutter can result. Whether they put more on will be seen in the future.

Not hardly... that was the last PILOT crew base to get 738 positions. Currently 738 pilots are based at MIA, DFW, LAX & DCA (BOS closes this month). F/A crew bases are NOT designated by aircraft type as F/A's are usually qualified in more than one acft type.

Yes... 3DG only.

Not publicly (yet) and about 3 months ago.

Better check your sources. AA negotiated with Boeing AeroPartners to purchase 20 sets of 757 winglets and was "given" one set of 737 winglets for free by Boeing AeroPartners as a flying testbed to gather real-world numbers specifically applicable to the way AA operates/routes its 738's (better information for negotiating?). AA's Tulsa Maintenance Base installed the 737 winglet set in 9 days (Kit instructions say 20 days) and is installing the 757 winglet sets. Winglet installation is not a simple "bolt-on" application as there is serious modifications required to the entire wing; however, the 737 installation is supposed to be considerable easier than the 757 installation. Rumor has it AA wants to negotiate an installation contract to do some/all of Boeing AeroPartners' installation work in addition to installing winglets on AA planes (more negotiations?).

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 8):

PILOT crew bases are airport specific. AA/APA contract lists "co-terminals" and "satellites" as part of Pilot Crew Bases. Going beyond a basic listing gets into contract language and would take far too much bandwidth to try to explain. A simple listing: BOS = BOS Pilot Crew Base; LGA/JFK/EWR = LGA Pilot Crew Base; DCA/IAD/BWI = DCA Pilot Crew Base; MIA/FLL/PBI = MIA Pilot Crew Base; ORD/MDW = ORD Pilot Crew Base; DFW/LUV = DFW Pilot Crew Base; SFO/OAK/SJC = SFO Pilot Crew Base; LAX/ONT/SNA/LGB/SAN = LAX Pilot Crew Base.

Probably not. I consider myself to be a "seasoned B738 Captain for AA" and I didn't know what I posted until AA's VP-Flight (i.e. THE Chief Pilot) said it 3 weeks ago. I suspect he's feeding you rumors, not facts.  Wink

A LGA Captain will fly out of EWR/LGA/JFK. You know that they are based in a region, and fly out of several airports there. Take a look at LAX! And yes in the contract they say "co-terminals", but the fact is that it is a region. And I know, because it sures take a long time to get from SFO, to SJC, on the 101.  silly

Am I correct that AA is de-emphasizing BOS? First the big A300s to MIA went away, now I hear that the total number of flights at BOS is going to be cut quite a bit. True?

"Region," "Regional" and "Regional Base" are very specific terms in this industry. For this reason AA/APA pilot contract specifically avoids using those terms and AA does not operate any regional pilot crew bases. A Satellite Crew Base is a stand alone crew base operationally, but administratively under the listed Crew Base (to save administrative overhead costs). Section 2KK of the contract covers the specifics of a "Satellite Base" including which station is a Satellite Base and which "Crew Base" has administrative authority over that Satellite Base.
