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.
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.
