LBB? That one seems a little out there, especially since they haven't even started resuming mainline service there yet. The MD80s will start flying there again in June. Will the A319s replace those or is LBB expected to go all mainline?

Given the limited fleet, they might have had only enough time in the day to do a 3 hour rotation somewhere. True they could have done AUS/SAT/IAH etc.

With all the others, AA is sending the A319 into mainline routes with weak load factors. If they were looking for equipment utilization for a 3 hour quick run, IAH, LIT, or OKC would have gotten my vote first.

I assume ICT could help protect the route with WN now on it.

IAH needs the capacity and is not low yielding. Shame they didn't add a 9th daily service on peak days with it though   although that is probably a selfish request.

Woohoo! I am so glad McAllen will see the new A319s!! I live in Dallas but travel to my hometown of McAllen/Mission to see my family, and I am ready to see the MD80's fly into the sunset. They put in great service, but it is time to modernize.

The airport is known as "Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport". Elevation (7,678 ft asl) must be among the highest of U.S. airports with scheduled service. It's about 360 ft. higher than MEX and about 2,200 ft. higher than DEN.

Here you go :
. Of course it has a German flag on the tail because the aircraft is registered in Germany until delivery to AA. The aircraft will be reregistered in the US and the flag will be removed .

I think that AA will replace the M80 with the 738 for DFW-PDX service, as the returning ORD-PDX flights will be operating with 738's. But I am with you brother, those tired M80s need to go, as is planned. PDX is still AA's longest distance M80 route. I have been flying AA from PDX since before the M80 was in the AA fleet. I remember flying AA 727-100/200 aircraft to DFW, EUG, SEA and ORD out of PDX since the early to mid 80's. Yikes, that is 30 years.... I'm showing my age.

I'm sure you're right, but I was hoping for at least one 319—that might prompt the return of the red-eye to DFW. I still like aspects of the MD-80, but if its expense to run causes us to sacrifice service, I'll take a 737 or 319 on the route instead.

I was surprised to see ELP on the list, I figured ELP would be one of the last stations to see a new type, mainly because it is a relatively short segment (1:20 or so) and the load factors are good, or have been every time I've flown out of there on AA, so the chances of having anything other than the MD-80 flying those routes until the bitter end seemed remote at best.

31 RWA380 : I was referring to currently operating flights. Next longest currently is DFW-FAT, IIRC.

134 oc2dc : Yes, there will be at least 2 variations of the A321. We already know about the A321T(aka the A321 Transcon, used for JFK-LAX/SFO with 10F/20J/36MCE/
135 crAAzy : I doubt the regular A321s will be as premium heavy as the 757s. If the A319 is any indication they'll likely have 16F on the A321 which would also be
136 AAplat4life : Didn't the F100 have only 8 seats in First Class? Not really an apples to apples comparison, but it does seem as if AA is hell bent on alienating its
137 ckfred : Yes, but remember that before "More Room Throughout Coach", there were only 89 seats in Y. After MRTC was introduced, Y was cut down to 79 seats. If
138 etops1 : I guess someone didn't believe me when I said that US aircraft would be painted after merger closing in sept or after sept so they decided to send the
139 aacun : Nope. Verified it last night. It is actually an Airbus part that fits the tow bar so that it can be used for the Airbus. im just telling you what he
140 kd5mdk : The CR7 is scope limited, not space. Why wouldn't they fly a 738 on that route? It has 16 F seats. The A319 isn't anywhere near becoming AA's primary
141 JoePatroni707 : Local aircraft maintenance as well as stores told me its the same towbar. In fact we have already marked all of our 737 tow bars as "737/A319/320/321
142 sancho99504 : The A320 family and 737 family use completely different towbars. The hitch on the A320 nosewheel is considerably larger than that of the 737.
143 nwcoflyer : Some towbars work for both. When I worked the ramp we routinely used the same towbars for 737 and 320 family series aircraft. The 757 was the only on
144 sancho99504 : When I worked for UA in ANC and SEA, the 733/5 and A319/20 both used different towbars. It was the same when I worked for HP in SEA and then LAS. May
145 ckfred : When AA first took delivery of the CRJ 700, it had 70 seats. I don't think scope has anything to do with the 9F 54Y. Although, in putting in 3 rows o
146 HPRamper : I worked for HP in 2005 and our towbars fit both 733 and A319/320. 757 had its own. Probably depends on the towbar manufacturer.
147 oc2dc : Actually, scope does have something to do with the configuration. Eagle was limited to how many 70 seat CRJ aircraft they could operate. They were al
148 ABQopsHP : I was about to say the same thing. In ABQ we had common 737/Airbus towbar. And a 757 towbar. Has to be the manufacturer. JD CRP
