No, American chose to ride the post 9/11 airline crash without bankruptcy (unlike Delta and United who decided that strategic bankruptcy would make them stronger a few years later) in order to accomplish this American delayed the MD-80 retirement. Unfortunately this means American has a problem, the MD-80's have to be phased out on an accelerated schedule to avoid airframe loss and Boeing can't supply enough 737's to meet the new requirement, so American's picking up A319's and A321's to cover the spread.

A bit off topic, but...Does anybody have info on the progress of the A321T model that AA is to be receiving some time in Sept/Oct? The production list I saw didn't even list American, but there were several for US Airways about ready to go through.

Will AA's Airbus have "mood lighting" or standard light bulbs. I know they will all have PTV's for the initial deliveries. Rumor is that AA will discontinue domestic IFE early next year.

A good call, I'd say. With power outlets and inflight Wi-Fi, passengers can now provide their own IFE without the cost and complexity of wiring it into the aircraft.

No. It just continues the cluster F@##$ decision making again between old and new AA leadership. Continuing along the lines of adding more seats back into the MCE planes, going back to Eagle pilots for more cuts after a contract had just been ratified and now we're hearing about the removal or IFE less than a year after it is being implemented.

After advertising the make overs for over a year and on the verger of new aircraft delivery with the new interiors, new seats, and IFE it just is going to confuse people even more. What are they going to do just turn it off on the planes that have it so people on those flight continue to think American sucks, their service sucks, and their new planes are already broken or not working? Or maybe they are going to just gut the aircraft and install all new interiors?

While other mergers weren't perfect, they at least presented an early coherent plan and brand for the customers that provided some direction where the airlines were going (for better or worse). I still think the biggest problem with this merger is going to be the lack of direction with respect to where the hard product is going and the changes that are made will be to align AA more with US's mediocre product offering while continuing half-hearted improvements in US's product offerings.

Devaluation of AAdvantage program miles with respect to award travel, likely change in meal service (AA and DL have meals for flights 2 hours or longer while US meals start at flights 3.5 hours and longer), smaller MCE cabins, rumored removal of IFE, etc. the list just goes on.

Correct, that list is A319 only. AA will receive only 2 A321 aircraft this year:

Another 20 A321 aircraft are scheduled for 2014, the first 8 are already allocated:

But for every passenger who comes aboard with a smartphone and tablet/laptop, you might have someone like me who is still trying to figure out how to use a smartphone after 10 months of use, and still uses a desktop computer. Another point is that a lot of people are carrying smartphones and computers owned by employers. Start using company equipment for non-approved purposes, like watching sports, sit-coms, or movies on a flight, and the boss will be having a little chat at the behast of the company IT guru.

And frankly, if JetBlue, Virgin America, and other competitors offer IFE on domestic flights, why should AA just say, "Use your phone or computer"?

Rumors about what airlines will do are just that, rumors. Much of the time, they are either completely wrong or partially true.

That said, Doug Parker admitted, when he was meeting with union leaders to get them on the merger bandwagon, that US's in-flight product, as well as other aspects of customer service, is inferior to AA's. US doesn't have the route network that generates premium traffic. Considering that Parker got his start in the airline business at AA, when Bob Crandall was trying to out-innovate every other airline, one would assume that Parker understands that AA can't effectively compete with UA and DL by offering US's product.

That A.net myth has to stop. Fact is, far more people still use the IFE system than their own devices, and in-flight Wi-Fi providers are bleeding cash as we know it.

Just a bit curious as to why the N-numbers appear out of sequence, and why some N-numbers have a single letter as the last character. Granted, there are only so many numbers ending in AA, AM, and AN, and the recent 738 deliveries have N-numbers ending in NN. I seem to recall that the F100s had four numbers that were sequential with delivery, followed by a single letter. It seems to me that the letter in the N-number was the third character in the ship number (NxxxxK would be ship number 2BK.

Just a bit curious as to why the N-numbers appear out of sequence, and why some N-numbers have a single letter as the last character. Granted, there are only so many numbers ending in AA, AM, and AN, and the recent 738 deliveries have N-numbers ending in NN. I seem to recall that the F100s had four numbers that were sequential with delivery, followed by a single letter. It seems to me that the letter in the N-number was the third character in the ship number (NxxxxK would be ship number 2BK.

I believe fin 015 is the test aircraft, and thus isn't being delivered straight away? As for the registrations, I believe whatever registrations are available with the fleet number within it. It looks a lot how Southwest Airlines are going about their new aircraft...

The new paint scheme looks great on the new AA 319. Looking forward to seeing these planes flying out of Miami eventually.

Fact is, far more people still use the IFE system than their own devices, and in-flight Wi-Fi providers are bleeding cash as we know it.

Fact? Source? You being nosy and looking at what people are doing on the aircraft that you are on, doesn't make it a fact. People passing off opinion as fact has got to stop.

Do you work for an IFE provider? I find it odd that someone is so passionate about IFE... In the past year, I've had broken seat-back IFE machines on AA, UA and NZ. In my experiences, the odds of it working correctly are lower than it working period. I'm sure the inflight crews would love to see them disappear as that is one less thing they will have to trouble-shoot and/or be blamed for.

It looks like I missed something. I know that earlier AA firmed 130 A321NEO's but that the CEO's didn't still hit the order books. If so how is it then possible to deliver the A319 or is it imaginable that the order has been firmed but not yet officially announced?

Do you have a flight number to go with that routing? FlightAware won't let me look it up by N-number.

I know they will all have PTV's for the initial deliveries. Rumor is that AA will discontinue domestic IFE early next year.

Why do people even start these nonsense rumors?

IFE isn't being removed; and 738s will have them with all deliveries starting in October.

What is true is that IFE will not be retroactively installed.

The above information is incorrect according the the AA M&E site.


It is scheduled to ferry on the routing, but tomorrow, Jul 24th. The flight number will be 9707.

In another thread, this was confirmed by an airline crew member (whose post was unfortunately deleted). I highly doubt he/she would be lying. Yet the people who say that more passengers use the in-flight Wi-Fi than PTVs are trying to present their view as fact when it is actually blatantly false as confirmed by that crew member.

BTM is a known airport code used for "other" operational uses. AA doesn't fly to any Montana airports. In all likelihood it will be a training flight of some sort (non-revenue)
