Quoting DFWMzuri (Thread starter): I saw a North American B767 at the AA maintanance hanger today. Does anyone know why?
North American does charters in and out of DFW all the time. I've seen their 767s parked at the low D gates on several occasions. They probably just ferried the plane over the AA's maintenance hangar across the runway because AA is pretty much the only company at DFW capable of fixing just about any major non-overhaul problem a 767 would have there.
Quoting WNCrew (Reply 3): Doesn't AA do all their own mx in-house and also some for outside operators like NA?
Yes. AA is now the only major U.S. airline that still does 100% of its aircraft overhauls in-house, and the company is also increasingly trying to win business from outside customers (mostly airlines and leasing companies). American has had some limited success, winning contracts with, among others, Avianca, Hawaiian, USAirways, and Air Canada for anything from limited, one-time modification work up to heavy overhauls.
