New American/US Airways Fleet?

Now that the DOJ lawsuit has gone the way of the dodo bird, we can get down to what the future holds for the "new" American Airlines. What exactly will their fleet look like? 737 Classic, 737NG, 737MAX, 757, 767, 777, 787, A320CEO, A320NEO, A350! Don't forget a few MD-80 series aircraft lingering on and the odd Embraer. Everything under the sun in the way of "modern" aviation will be taxing around the terminals of the new merged "American". A fleet almost as diverse as the country it is named after!

It would seem that one outside company that wins from this merger is Boeing. They had held sway with AA for quite some time but in the last round of orders, due to the shear magnitude, Airbus was able to place an extremely large number of A32X family jetliners firmly in "Boeing Country". A small crack in the chink of Boeing armor at AA by Airbus has somehow turned into a massive flood gate opening for Boeing. What a turn of events, as one of Airbus's largest "exclusive" customers in US Airways is now set for demise. Airbus had all but rendered Boeing aircraft obsolete at US Airways spare the few 737-400s still in operation alongside an extremely small fleet of 757s/767s.

With the merger, a burgeoning fleet of 737-800 and 737-Max series aircraft are now squarely operating in what was once "Airbus Dominated" pastures. No longer will the eye not see masses of 737s in Charlotte!!!! This in addition to an impressive fleet of 767/777/787 aircraft overshadowing the now smallish A330/A350 fleet. With 42 787s set to operate on behalf of AA, one has to wonder if the A350 order isn't modified to exclude the -800 or swapped for additional A32X aircraft.. It will also be interesting to see how brand new 777-300ERs are put to use on this route system.

Interesting times indeed!

The new AA will simply be too large and demand too many aircrafts to be reliant on one manufacturer. For the next 10-15 years the new AA fleet is really already set. MAX/NEO/350/787 plus their existing fleet. I don't really see the new AA ordering the 779 but definitely could eventually see some A35J in the fleet.

How much of an increase in capacity would the 777-9X hold over the current 777-300ERs AA has on order? AA only has 2 of the birds on rotation and already we are discussing replacements!!!!

One has to wonder what fleet management will do with dual rated 777-200ER/300ER & 787 pilots. Almost a one stop shopt for long haul at AA! Very similar to what the 737NG/Max and A320CEO/NEO fleets will be like.

I was looking at the loads for the A321 for AA they have 10F 20C and 72Y will AA make $$ off LAX-JFK route? That seams like so little seats!

Premium demand can pay for the flight, especially on that route.

One simply needs to look at the A321 configuration difference between American and US Airways. US Airways packs them in (like UA/Delta on the 753) while AA has a more premium configuration:

US Airways:
http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/US_Airways/US_Airways_Airbus_A321.php
16F/171Y=187 total

AA new A321T:
10F/20C/36Y+/36Y=102 total

I do realize that the new AA A321 is entirely in a different market than US. The AA ones are for premium trans-con while US flies them on routes as long as PHL-LAX packing them in with volume.

Also I will note that AA will soon discover the cost and CASM efficiency of US'es A330 fleet (specifically the -300) as Delta has discovered (291 seats, 28C suites /263Y) in which when you can FILL the seats the A330 operating cost is less than the 777 because it has less range (which is perfect because you don't need the dead-weight on trans-Atlantic and South America flights, only the Pacific network is the extra range needed).

Actually with this merger AA gains the ultimate fleet that Delta has (both A330 and 777 like some European carriers).

The load on the AA A321 does seem a little light for such a well traveled route. What does a current day AA 757 operate with?

One aircraft I really think will shine with the new AA is the 787-8. AA and US operate a massive fleet of 767 aircrat. With such a penchant for international flights in that seat category, the 787-8 or 787-9 could really clean house at AA and make the new carrier plenty $$$.

If this merger goes through the A358 implications are interesting. An order modification seems likely.

A351 or 779 seems likely. Their 77Ws are 10 abreast in Y and 9 abreast in Y+ and won't need replacing for 25 years

We are heading to a new blood bath on domestic flights , if onyone thinks that Jetblue, Southwest, Delta and United will just sit and see a gigantic AA have a large share of the market without a fight, is just delusional.

AA is so big that they will order aircraft in big orders from both A and B.

Its a pity because the domestic industry seemed like growing again and now this big merger will turn the scales...

The original order plans for the 787 was for 42 787-9s and 58 options. Then the order was changed to 22 787-8s and 20 787-9s, plus options for 58 of any model, so we'll see.

And the A330 that will probably stick around for quite some time.

In fact, their fleet is going to be quite similar to DL's and UA's (in the big picture of things), in the sense that it will have most modern airliner families in large numbers, without having more than one major family totally omitted (excl. VLA).

I believe US is replacing their 767s with A330s, and their 737s are being phase out already with new airbus. I think we might see an order to replace the old airbuses in US fleet.

I'm more curious about how fast AA/US will be able to retire the fleet of 767-200s as well as the 737-400 fleet. Both of those types are incredibly outdated and need to see an accelerated departure. However, I do wonder if AA will have enough lift when they retire all those aircraft. Does anybody have any details about retirement of aircraft on the US side?

I can't wait to see the cross-fleeting begin. I would love to see some A330's at LAX, ORD, JFK, MIA and DFW.

i don't know about the 762s but the 737 should be gone by 2014 i think! but since AA-US is merging we will still see 737s :p

In 2014 US Airways will take delivery of 3 x A330-200's and 17 A321's while retiring 14 734's, 4 older A320's and 3 x 762's. If anything the merger will mean the remaining 762's get retired quicker especially as AA will be able to free up some of their 763 fleet from domestic flying as the new transcon A321's are delivered.

But, what is the cargo capacity of the A330 fleet, as it compares to the 777s? Remember that AA Cargo does contribute a fairly substantial amount of revenue. I've sat on 738s during boarding and watched a large amount of mail and cargo go into the hold. One would expect that the amount of cargo traveling in a 777 from ORD, MIA, and JFK to Europe and South America is quite substantial.

Remember that the initial A321s will have the 3-class configuration for trans-con service that has demand for premium seats. Later on, AA will get A321s with configurations more like the 757-200s that will leave the fleet over time. AA carries a number of people affiliated with the entertainment industry and financial services, and they are paying for F and J seats.

IIRC, 757s with the older cabin is 22F and 166Y, while the new cabin has 2 extra F seats. The A321s will have the same number of Y seats, but I think it's only 16 in First.

I have a few questions

Is the 130 aircraft order for the 320 Ceo family split evenly between the 319 and the 321 ?

have AA anounced a 321 cabin config for their non premium 321s?

Would the merged entity have a standard cabin, as in IFE with PTV on each seat,? because as far as i know US airways stripped down all forms of IFE from even their transcon 321s


My take on the fleet is

319/738/321 and their Neo and MAX counterparts for their entire domestic ops

763/332 to be eventually replaced by 788/789

333/77E to be eventually replaced by 359

77W...too new a procument to comment on

I think this mix keeps both A and B happy, which is necessary as the manufacturers are financing a part of their fleet renewal plans

Just one point - isn't US the driving force here? Just because AA is the larger of the two carriers does not mean that Boeing automatically wins if the ultimate leadership of the merged airline pulling the strings is from US. I think CX747 may be jumping the gun here. Of course any good management will weigh up the options from all manufacturers rather than committing to orders on the basis of historical preferences - look at JAL for example.

AA and US both have a unique niche for their long range 757s. MIA-ASU, MIA-LPB-VVI-MIA, PHL/CLT-LIS, ect. No NEO / MAX is going to fly those routes and the 763/788 seems to me like too much airplane. Where's the new small medium range jet?

77 NYCAAer : Currently they're on JFK-LHR-JFK, JFK-GRU-JFK, DFW-LHR-DFW, DFW-GRU-DFW and LAX-LHR-LAX. Starting in January, one frequency on MIA-LHR-MIA goes to th

88 CX747 : Except for the fact that AA's 737-800 fleet is quite larger than the combined US Airways/AA A319/320 fleet. (I am not going to count the US Airways 7
89 rj777 : I know this might be a long shot............ but I wonder if they'd be interested in the 777-X (soon to be launched at Dubai)
90 columba : I think they might follow United and will only go for the A350-1000. 787-8 787-9 A350-1000 seems to be a perfect mix Any chance to see AA pick up som
