Hey
Sorry if this point seems small and pointless but i was looking on Google Earth at CDG and see that there is an AA 757 parked at a ramp at the long southern terminal. There is another AA 763 at one of the gates nearby but i was wondering if anybody could shed some light on this aircraft being there. I know that they serve CDG with 763s from MIA, JFK and ORD. was there a BOS service before??

They serve BOS-CDG seasonally on the 763. The service runs May-October.

... though word has it American was considering BOS-CDG with a 757 to return the flight to a year-round run or as a continuation of the seasonal flight they've been flying.

to my knowledge, AA never served CDG with 757. Are you sure you can distingush a 767 and a 757 on Google Earth ?

From what I see on Google Earth it looks like both of the AA aircraft are 763.

Cheers,

Yeah you can see that the fuselage is thinner and that the wings look more detailed.

There are 3 AA aircraft. One is at a gate and the other 2 are at different ends of the stands to the south of the AA 763 at the gate. I am almost sure that it is a 757. It is thinner than the one at the gate and the wings are different

They're all 767-300s. I doubted the one on the eastern corner of the ramp. I guess it looks funny because it's parked aat an angle.

It doesnt look like one as look at the wings! its got the wing of a 757 compare them with the 767s. Also look at the shadow of the APU. its way too thin for a 767

The AA 757 is at CDG the same reason there is (any airline) 767 at MDW.

While you are convinced it is a 757, it is highly doubtful. You will fight a losing battle with this one.

There all 767s. They all have inboard ailerons which the 757 lacks. The flap tracks (canoes, things that stick out the back of the wings) are much more defined on the 757. The angle difference on the trainling edge of the 757 is also more defined. Take a look at the 757 at ORD on google earth to get a comparison.

They're 767s. For me the distinguishing characteristic was the engine pylons. On the 767 they extend forward about two-thirds the length of the cowling. On the 757 those pylons go all the way to the intake lip.

Pretty amazing resolution from Google, though. A few years ago you probably wouldn't see this level of detail in the public domain.

Another quick question. I swear that when I was at MIA last month I saw a AA plane with the triangle shaped winglets that the A320 line has. I did at least a triple take to make sure my eyes were seeing correctly. Could it have really been a AA320 type or same type winglets on a B737 model? Any ideas? Kev

You saw an Airbus A300-600R.
