I will travel from LAX to SJC soon and looked over AA's website for flights. Of course, this is ex-Reno territory and there must be some MD-87s and MD-90s around, along with the standard MD-80. However, the AA web just designates 'S80' for everything. Does anyone know if some of these are sexy -87s and -90s disguised generically as 'super 80s', if so, is there any neat trick to finding out which flight has which, short of going to the airport or nagging a res agent?! There have to be some of these goodies around and I suspect that web designers don't understand people like us :-(.

You might want to consider flying SJC-SNA.
That route is almost, if not exclusively the route of the ex-QQ MD-90's.
I don't know about the -87's though.

Thanks Matt. I checked aa.com and sure enough even all the Santa Ana flights are listed as generic 'S80' equipment, even though you indicated they are almost exclusively MD-90s.

You can also download the AA timetable from their website and get they destinguish between at least the 80s and 90s there. If i get a chance today i'll check it for you.

So I checked the timetables, and although I got some contradicting info... here's what I concluded. There actually are two flights from LAX-SJC that are MD-90. These are the 6:20am departure (flt. 2766) as well as the 4:16pm departure (flt. 2756). If you're anything like me you'll take the later, cause waking up at 5am isn't worth any flight! Also, if these times aren't good for you, there are also four SNA flights that are operated by the 90. These are 2818, 2820, 2822, 2824. Good luck getting on one of these. Be sure to let us know how it goes cause these babies aren't going to be around too much longer.

Have fun on the 90. I fly LAX-OAK several times a year and I enjoy the legroom.

Canned Spams post is fairly accurate, although AA SOC in DFW does some equipment changes daily and MD90 show up where MD80's are supposed to be and vice versa and so on and so forth with the MD87's. AA has begun the retirement of these aircraft 3 MD80's this month (N878RA-N880RA) next month two 90's go (I dont recall the regn #'s though) and April the three remaining 90's go, as well as 2 MD80's. AA will continue to retire an average of two ex Reno airplanes till there all gone replacing them with a mixture of their 80's and 738's.....Cool cuz the 738's have audio entertainment!!! Smile

Yes, you are right...there are equipment changes at times due to aircraft out of service and repositioning. However, equipment swaps between the MD90 and the MD80 are very limited due to the change in the cockpit and the need for different crew members. Additionally, when you swap an 80 for a 90 into/out of SNA, you run into trouble with payload restrictions and potential problems with future slot allocations. I would suggest that the above information that I pulled from the OAG is more than fairly accurate and in almost all cases, in general, the aircraft type I listed will be on the said flight.
