The first of the fleet swap of aircraft for the AA and American Eagle fleet has begun today with the arrival of an AE ATR-72 from San Jaun, PR. AE is to begin retiring the Saab SF-340Bs and EMB-135s "soon".
This is not the first time ATRs have been assigned to DFW. About 8 years ago, both AE and ASA (commuter for DL) flew ATR-72s and AE also had ATR-42s at DFW.
