After all the A-300 in AA fleet are very old but are the 757 so much younger?
Some info about AA 757?
And do the A-300 burn more fuel than the 757 in term of Seat/fuel?

The average age of AA's 757's are 13.8 years old vs 18.7 for the A-300. Of AA's 124 757's 23 of them were delivered between 2001 and 2002. Also keep in mind the 757's have winglets which helps in fuel efficiency.

Hola Patrick, qué milagro.

AA used to fly 1 daily A300 to MEX from MIA not too long ago (as part of a five or so daily flights schedule), but alas no more widebody service to MEX from the U.S. (although many people say that the AA A300's are really uncomfortable and old). I understand that the A300 fleet will probably be reduced or altogether retired as a result of the high oil prices.

Has AA gotten rid of all of the ex-TWA 757's?

Was recently on a AA A300 and I must say that it looks pretty good for its age. The overhead bins were big and seats were ok. I think they use it mainly for high density low yield market since first class only has 2-3 rows?

I may be remembering wrong but I thought it was more due to the leases expiring, the aircraft are maintenance hogs, and the sour relationship with Airbus that was convincing AA to ditch the planes more than fuel costs.

Caribbean flights.

I think the answer to the A300 in the short term is 767 and in the longer term may also be a 767. If AA were to order the 787-9 Boeing would happily supply a short term fleet of 767 for lease. A 787-9 with its huge wingspan is too much plane for the Caribean, a problem the 763 doesn't have. Using 767's in the Caribean also standardizes more of the fleet. There doesn't seem to be any plane able to do what the A300 does with LD3 containers today.

Yes, they do. A few have already went to cargo operators though.

Was thinking of them as a viable alternate to the A300's although the capacity is lower, they can carry cargo to/from carribbean destinations.

Currently, there is no real replacement for A300s available. A332 or B783, if ever built, have too much wing span, but come nearest.

757 can be replaced by 739ER, an aircraft I expect to be ordered in quantities by the survivors of the airline blood bath.

No they don't the last of the NON-ER airplanes is being cut up. N308AA went to ABX. as for the rest, if your beer or soda taste funny it maybe because it was a American Airlines 767-200.

The cockpits for 301 and 302 where on Ebay last year for sale. I know the guy that got the date plate from 303 before it was cut up, 304-307 where scapped within the last 6 months.
