Question(s) Regarding AA's New 738's

Hello All :

Within the past year and a half AA has been receiving brand new Boeing 737-800's from Boeing, and I have a few questions with regards to these new birds.

1.) Since these new 738's have new features both in the cabin and in the cockpit, are they considered a "sub fleet"?

2.) Does AA dispatch these 738's to all the other 738 destinations or are they limited to a select few destinations that AA serves?

3.) Does anyone know which registration will feature the new " Enhanced " 737 interior?


Thank you in advance for your replies and answers.

** Edit - When I mentioned "Enhanced" I meant the new Boeing "Sky" interior that made its debut earlier this year.

IIRC, the "older" 738's for AA are in the process of being retrofitted. The new 738 (again IIRC) will not have a rear galley and have some extra seating installed; the older ones are rotating through AA's heavy maint facility to be retrofitted to the same interior specs as the new a/c.

/cheers

The BSI (Boeing Sky Interior) is not yet available and will show up on a/c delivered nearer the end of this year and beginning of next year. CO will be the first to operate an a/c with the BSI, but it too won't have the new interior in service until late 4Q10.

The newer 738s have an additional 12 seats. This is due to the removal of compartments in the rear. All 738s, old and new have no ovens in the back. The newer 738s have flip down monitors, as opposed to the large CRTs. The also have new seats slimline seats. To be honest, not much of an improvement. They needed to focus on a more needed refurbishment of their 757s. But of course this took priority because of need to streamline all 738s. Also, the 767s needed to be checked for cracks, so this slowed down the process of converting/refurbishing the 738/757s.

Most new 738s are dedicated to ORD, while older 738s are confined to MIA.

Hope that helps.

Is AA even a Sky Interior customer? Unlike CO, they're not listed on Boeing's press release.
