That's right. American will put its 777's on all of their flights to Tokyo and Osaka, they now have a direct DFW-Osaka flight, ORD-NRT flight in addition to DFW, SJC and SEA that they previously had as departure points to NRT. JFK-NRT and BOS-NRT are also coming up, but I have never heard of a direct MIA-NRT flight. The only aircraft that could do it is the 747-400 which American doesn't have. I think they are expecting their first 777 next month.
This is the sad end of the MD-11 at American. What is it that is wrong with the MD-11? I really think that they should keep them longer, at least another decade. The MD-11 is not even a decade old !
