I was curious about the history of AA's 762 fleet. While I am aware that the A market 762s have all been retired, and even some of the ERs have been stored, I know they were originally used for more routes than just trans-con hops. Where were they used originally? Were they ever flown to Europe? What kind of high density domestic routes, other than trans-con were the 762s used for? What type of route differentiation was seen between the 762As, and the -ERs? When the 762s were originally delivered, were they seen as premium aircraft, the way many DC-10s were advertised? Any other information would be greatly appreciated.

Were they ever flown to Europe?

They definitely used to fly these to LHR; I can remember them as frequent visitors in the late 90's

I recall flying on one of the first 767's AA had, a flight from ORD to DFW in Feb.1982 IIRC. Yes, they were initally advertised as "premium" aircraft, but initally used on routes not quite large enough for DC-10's or at lower demad times on trans cons. Also a lot ouf routings from the west coast to ORD then a quick hop to places like IND, DTW, BOS & EWR.

In the beginning, the 767's role at AA was to fill in for the retired (9/81) 707's.
Its' role as trans-con and west cost to ORD or DFW trunk routes evolved in the early to mid 80's.

I'm sure some AAer on here can remember the exact details better.

AA flew 767-200ER's to Europe on a regular basis. All of their European cities were served at any given time by them.

I flew AA's 767-200s at least half a dozen times on now abandoned GIG-JFK flights AA972/973 and also between Chicago and Milan Malpensa.

AA had 8 original 767-200..76Bs we called them. They had a range of no more than 3000 miles I think, at least they were not capable of transoceanic flights. In 1983 there were quite a few 767s flights on ORD-LGA. JFK-LAX/SFO then was either 747 or D10. I assume those 8 originals must be retired now.

The first time I saw a 767 was Dec 31, 1982. I saw a UA 767 at ORD after I arrived on a DL L1011 from MIA

Yes, the 8 original (non –ER) 767-200’s were N301-8AA and they have all been retired from service. N301-7AA were sold for scrap but N308AA was given a new job. It has been fitted with a new missile defence system developed by BAE Systems for testing to protect commercial airliners from terrorist missile attacks. There is a picture of it in the database in it’s new role, but I’m not sure how to add it here.

The 767-200 were use on the CCS-JFK runs some years ago. I flew on one of them on this route 6 years ago. Now this route is operated with a 757-200.
