Have AA installed winglets on every single one of their 767--300s? Or are there still a few 763s without winglets? Do they plan on installing winglets on all their 763s, or will they leave some without? Also, do these wingleted 763s fly domestic routes? (For example, do they fly DFW-LAX, MIA-LAX, MIA-DFW, LAX-ORD, etc..?) or do wingletted 763s usually always fly international?

If I remember correctly, AA stopped the winglet program on their 763s a couple years back. So yes, some do have them, some don't. Based on my observations, I'd say only about 30-40% of the fleet has them, but again, that's just based on spending quite a bit of time around DFW. Certainly not scientific by any stretch.
AFAIK, there isn't any distinction between the two subfleets, which means you're just as likely to get a winglet-fitted 763 on a domestic flight as you are on an international flight, but I could be wrong.

There aren't any restricted routings for the 763's but there is some priority routing for winglet aircraft to be routed on the longer stagelenghts when possible, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Why? Were they not happy with them? Everyone else seems happy with them.
398 is getting winglets and MAUI (Avionics Mod) done as we speak.
