Well 777 they are going to bring them in starting this fall replacing 727-200's on various rte's as well as supplementing Md-80's and 727's on other rte's out of DFW. Dl has been operating 737-800's out of DFW for a while and part of AA's strategy is to compete with them on certain RTE's with similiar aircraft I know I use to work at DL.

They are trying to replace the smaller 727 bases and the largest 727 base, MIA. Like the above said, they will be bringing them in this fall(I can't wait!). Also, I have heard if you are lucky, you can see them coming in on delivery flights in the hangars at DFW.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Rumor has it the late summer/early fall opening of 737 DFW pilot crew base is going to be pushed back to permit new delivery aircraft to be more fully utilized out of ORD, LGA and MIA. Asked the man who should know and he could only say "before the end of the year" was still good bet. My training partner is MCO commuter to be based in ORD hoping for increased MIA 737 manning, but he's being told the same thing.... not much increase until ORD and LGA get more flying.

Thats sounds great that the 738 will be brought to DFW. Any possibilities of AA using the 738 on some of their routes to ABQ. Delta I believe has 2 flights using a 738 from DFW. Im just curious, because it would be nice to see something other than a MD80 here in AA colors.
