Anyone know why this flight has been upgraded to a 767-300 for the last few days? I doubt the women's regional NCAA tourney is drawing this much traffic, but I guess it could be.

Maybe it was due to a shortage of MD-80's.

IIRC AA does some 767 work at OKC. They ran some 767s on the route several months back as they came in for work.

I heard that all AA ops were back to normal and all MD-80's were back in service. If you were seeing these 763's a couple of day's ago, AA may have cancelled some MD-80 flights, and swapped a later flight with a 763 to accomadate cancelled passengers.

AA could of set something up with Amtrak. There's a daily Amtrak run from FTW-OKC and vise versa. I believe the FTW-OKC leaves Fort Worth at around 1800hrs and the OKC-FTW leaves OKC at around 0900hrs.

Noticed this also. I recently saw two flights leave minutes of each other DFW-OKC on M80's. Maybe they upgraded the flight. But, a 763 would be an odd sub for a short flight as surely it doesn't have that much demand. I wish we did get some scheduled widebody service. It sickens me seeing all the RJ's and 73's here everyday, spotting is so boring at OKC.

Don't think so, TUL is AA's main mx base. Maybe you are thinking of AS that does their mx here at AAR.

It happens occasionally; AA has enough slack in their widebody scheduling that it doesn't affect international flying. STL sees the occasional 763 from DFW for the same reason.

What a nice surpise that would have been for passengers expecting an MD-80, and spotters at OKC.


There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

What spotters? There are like 3 of us....and I live WAY north of the airport. I wish I would have known when this flight was operating as I would have made the trek down to the airport just to see this rarity.

Yes, all three of you, Phil, Joe, and Bill.  Wink But seriously, I'm sure someone at or near the airport was intrigued to see a 763 arrive. Enthusiast a.net member or not.

Ahem.

I only live 2.5 miles from the airport, how on earth did I miss this? Oh yeah, at high noon I'm in the concentration camp, I mean school.
