That is both great and sad to hear. First, for spotters down there, they will get a chance to photograph the 738. Unfortunately, that means the 727 are really on the beginning of the end in AA colors. What a shame.

Why would AA only just be adding the 738 to DFW now? This is their largest hub.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Although DFW is their largets hub, AA found greater efficiencies by flying the 738 out of ORD and MIA to points all across the US. ORD doesn't prefer 727 flights there so the 727s went to DFW and the MD-80s due a good and efficient job in flying nonstop to most points from DFW. So therefore, a narrowbody that is designed primarily for long hauls was not that needed at DFW.

Actually, if you'll notice, ORD has very few 757 ops. Only 14 daily for Nov. versus DFW which has significantly more.

I heard there are noise-restrictions and hence 727 ops out of ORD were not especially encouraged?

AA seems to have been replacing 727 with 738 one hub at a time. ORD was completely doneby end of 1999. At 9/11/01 MIA was halfway done, and DFW not touched. I am guessing on Dec 15 if 738 is going to DFW, then MIA is completely done.  Sad


Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Well, I recently checked for flights from Dallas to Dulles, in January, and found that ALL have been switched to 727s. That should have been a clue, that fleet ops were changing, because until recently, several had been upgraded (or dowgraded I suppose) to MD-80s.

But, bottom line is, there is STILL a chance to fly the 727 on AA, get in while you can!

MIA & DFW still has a fair number of 727 flights, and at least through Jan, the above mentioned flights are the only 738's through DFW

The AA 727's in Miami are going away at a rapid rate.The AA 738 is slowly but surely becoming the dominant ac for AA in Miami.I am glad to here that DFW will finally see the ac.
