Hi,

A BOS based flight attendant who was working my trip today from DFW to BOS told me that the AA A-300s have PTVs in the coach cabins (ONLY on the 3 class configuration though). She stated that she frequently works BOS-LHR on the A-300 and really likes that AA has put them in the coach cabin.

Did anyone else know this?

Yes, they do. I fly on them on occasion. Nothing spectacular, though! A postcard sized low resolution monitor. They also have very confortable leather seats on these planes. But they definitely show their age!

I believe that the PTV's are only on eight of the thirty-five A300-605Rs American owns. As the A300 has a range limit, they are only placed on BOS-LHR, JFK-LHR, and they may, or may not fly JFK-CDG.

They don't fly JFK-CDG with the A300. Both flights are operated with B767's (one with a -300, the other, with a -200ER).

AA has had PTV's on eight of their 35 3-class cabin
layout A300-600's since 1997.

I flew JFK-LHR and return on an A300, and the PTV's were great.

I flew one of these 3 class aircraft from Montego Bay to New York JFK. PTV's had two channels plus video games, plus an on screen guide to the audio entertainment.

What are AAs plans for the A300s. Surely they don't fit in the long term plans for their fleet structure.

What other aircraft than the A300 has the PTVs in the backs of the seats? I'm sure that AAs 767-300s have them.

Jonnyboy: It's hard to say right now. American really likes the plane, but due to it's range limits, and their committment to Boeing, I'd say long-term, the A300's don't have a bright future. Like the F100, the A300 is an odd-ball in their fleet, although the A300 even more so. The F100 serves the 100 seat pax market very well, but with Fokker gone, spare parts are going to get harder and harder to find.

I'd say the A300 will remain for about another 3-5 years, I think will hear of a replacement soon.

In 10 years, the American fleet will be all-Boeing. my hunch goes like this:

737-600(to replace the F100)
737-700 (to replace the MD-80)
737-800
757-200
757-300 (to replace ageing 767-200s)
767-300
767-400 (I think this will come in, replace some 763s)
777-200

As American originally ordered 75 737-800s, with 425 options on any series. That's why I put the 736 and 73N. I think the 757-300 will come in as a replacement to the 767-200s. I think if AA get's some 767-400s, that will free up some 763s to replace the A300. I think AA getting the 777-200LR is possible as well.

Anyone think American will buy the 717 to replace their F100?
