Saw this yesterday ... I guess they need some extra lift out of DTW to compensate for the CRJ700s also doing DTW-ORD. Incidentally, this may be the only route in the entire domestic AA system (non-Caribbean) that goes both mainline 757s and Eagle flights.

My uncle told me alot over dinner tonight, and one thing was a line check for some guy ORD-DTW on the 752. Like an hour flight if that.
Glad to see them back there. We get them back in AUS soon too.
A bit more info about a few AA 757 frames. The ones they got from TW, that were previously rumored and reported in AA ops meetings to be retrofitted with ETOPS and inflatable rafts for west coast ops to Hawaii...they are dead in the water and all ex TW frames will be returned to leasers in 2007 and 2008, at lease end.

I was hoping to be able to get a shot of the 757-200 when I fly WN into DTW on Oct 6th but as my luck would have it my flight gets in at 10 and the AA flight gets in around 1015, hopefully I wont have to check any bags and I can stick around to see this baby come in. Almost booked it with the routing being BNA-ORD-DTW, but I needed the latest Departure out of BNA and WN provided it. Part of me wishes i wouldve booked it on AA.
Is it bad that I get excited to see even a CRJ overfly? Man, what this place does to you

This is great news. DTW was one of the first cities that American served with the 757 after deliveries began in 1989. In fact, my first ever 757 flight was on American from ORD-DTW in December 1989. I miss the days of the 767 and DC10 being on that route as well.

I would like to see another AA flight to MIA. They just have the one in the morning and one in the late evening time. With all the Cruise Lines in MIA and FLL you think they would put another flight on.

A few years ago, AA was offering 3 daily DTW-MIA flights during peak winter season. Recently it has been only 1 daily (morning) departure. Not sure if the 2nd daily (evening) flight is coming back for this winter. Its a 738 route, but it would be cool to see a 757 on DTW-MIA. At times, there certainly is the demand on the route.

Second daily returns this winter, as always, and the current flight wil be a 757 this winter.

but I'm holding out to see the 80's return to CLE from DFW
You suppose MIA-CLE might come first? There has to be more cruise/SoAm traffic than fits on one little ERJ.
Well here's what I know, I know that with MQ's flat rate charged to AA to ground op one of their flights the 80 would have been profietable based on the revenue numbers they were getting when they dropped it.. Since CLE lost the 80 to MIA AA has removed all the 80's from the MIA base.. now it's just 738s.... if that would make money, I don't know... like I said I only pray to get some mainline back on the dfw cle market... lol

We are very excited to have the 757s.
Before the 757s were loaded on the final schedule; around the end of June, you wouldn't believe what the DTW-ORD schedule was going to look like: 4 x ER4 and 2 x S80! Let's say everyone was very concerned about this because the two ER4 flights normally went out weight restricted (heavy bags!). Within a week however, we learned that the planners gave us the current mix:
