I looked at UA's latest timetable,I noticed a few changes. LAX-LIH is now a 763,It's been a 752 since before I flew it in March. Also,no more 727's ORD-LAS as I took Sep 1st. My home airport,ROC,now has 2 less flights for now. No more 6am to ORD and no more midnight arrival from ORD. But our last ome in for the day,UA438 is still a 727 (wonder for how long).
God bless America

With American announcing that they will retire ALL 727s by the end of November, I imagine UA will plead with Airbus to make the A320 faster... "We'll paint them ourselves if you can just send us 20 a day."
But, in reality, I suppose that most of the capacity cuts could be made by eliminating the 727.
I think they're days are numbered, as unfortunate as that is.
I relaized last night that I have probably flown on my last 727 even, and I didn't even know it.
