Last time I counted, AA has in excess of 300 daily departures from DFW on the M80 alone. It is by far the dominant a/c type at the hub and has been for years, and probably for a long time to come. They pretty much still fly them all over the system too. Heck, they even operate them DFW-XNA!

Others that I can think of are:
And I'm sure there are still more...
There are so many AA MD-80's flying out of DFW and ORD also. It would be easier to list the routes out of DFW that AA flies with NO MD-80 aircraft:
DFW-JFK which is what the subject of the topic is all about
DFW-MIA, there are no more MD-80's at MIA
Not sure about DFW-SNA, I know most flights are 757's but I think one is a Super 80
And of course all flights to Europe and Japan, needless to say
DFW-JFK, it used to be a 727-200 until the mid 90's when the MD-80 replaced it on the route. American only flew two routes with the MD-80 aircraft out of JFK: JFK-DFW and JFK-BOS.

While we're on this topic, anybody know what the last scheduled AA 727 flight into JFK was?
I remember so vividly leaving my house for high school at 6:30 one morning in 2002 and seeing an AA 727 on the Canarsie Approach...I'm pretty sure it was a sub as they didn't operate 727s into JFK regularly then....
Quoting AA767400 (Reply 16): Along with the 738 as well, which only did JFK-KIN.
I saw one at JFK within the past year...I tried to figure out what it was subbing for but wasn't able to...

The smallest mainline jet American operates at JFK is the 762. Besides that, it flies 757s, 763s, AB6s, and 777s. It streamlined the operation by removing two types that saw limited flying to the airport (the only route to see 737s and M80s after the cutbacks was DFW).
The last MD-80s and 737s were pulled from the schedules (and replaced by 757s) in 2003 or 2004.
As for DFW MD-80 routes, just about every domestic (48 contiguous states) route except Miami and New York Kennedy sees MD-80s.
