With a fleet of 33 A300-600 in service, AA is certainly the largest carrier operating this type, along with Japan Airlines (22 aircraft, A300-600 + A300B4), and Thaï Airways (21 aircraft).

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is an "Airbus 300A"?

... which is the A300B, in fact. The A300(A/"non-B") has never been built and would have been a fair bit larger than the actual A300B. Main difference is fuselage width, which is kinda funny given that's what finally "killed" the A300B cross section after 3 decades with Airbus dropping the old-all new A350.

It is kind of interesting to see that the biggest users of A300s for pax are actually still blue chip airlines (including Lufthansa with 14 of them).

It's also interesting that both JL and AA are turned off on Airbus widebodies after the experience. At least that's what the public perception is...

I also think it's a fascinating detail, but I don't think either airline are "turned off" by the experience, JAL inherited them from Toa / Japan Air Systems so they're an orphan in an all-Boeing fleet (and pretty old as well), and while American are clearly bent out of shape by the crash in New York, those planes are filling a much needed niche at AA that no other plane can do, and they are not going to park a single one for years. Enamoured with Airbus or not, the A300 is a cashcow for American.

What experience? So why have they kept them all these years? If AA dont like their A300s why dont they replace them? JL and AA wont order more airbus' for reasons that are well known, and those reasons have nothing to do with the actual planes.
