The MD-80s & 717s will be retained for awhile. The 757s & 767s, however, may be parked, traded or sold off because their engines are not the same types used on AA's 757s & 767s. AA recently order 15 new 763s to replaced TWA's 767s. TWA's 757s were to have been traded to UA, if the merger between UA & USAir had gone ahead. Then AA would have picked up USAir's 757s. Now it's anyone guess what is going happen with them. Stay tuned...we'll all know something in the near future. Regards.

AA also reduced TWA's order for 717's from 50 to 30. How could they do such a thing? The 717s would probably fit in nicely with AA's fleet of 200 some MD-80s.

I think that the combined AA-TW fleet of MD-80s is nearly 400 though. And yes, the 717 will fit in quite nicely.

I also think the 717s would fit in nicely at AA. They would make a good replacement for the F100 as they are harder to maintain (get parts etc with Fokker bankrupt). I wonder if the 738 will replace the MD-80s. I think they are but that will take a good amount of time.

Anyone one seen the American Airlines magazine "Amaerica Way?" Seems they made a mistake in the listing of their fleet, by calling the MD 80 their own Boeing Super 80?
