I'm booking my parents for New York come for the end of May and they said they didn't want a single isle plane (ruling out CO out in to Newark, and AA or so I thought out of SJC with 752s and 738s).
I decided to book with American because my 4 trips with mrtc have been great so far, and when I checked the AAs schedule it has its flights listed as 762s on the SJC-JFK route, which happens to be cheaper a good amount of the time compared with the SFO-JFK route. Does anyone know if this is for good? I'm somewhat concerned about an equipment change.

The 767's are here through June. After that both trips will likely go back to either 757's or 738's, the 767's will go to other routes where they make more sense since the planes rarely carry more than a 20% load factor out of SJC

A 20% load factor? Are you kidding me? Yeesh. It surprises me that they would go back to a 757 though, considering (according to AmericanWay) that the 3-class 762s with mrtc actually have less capacity than the 752s. something like 176 vs 165 passengers, though I don't know how accurate that is.
The fare out of sjc was something like $277+tax, so probably around $310 with tax when I checked, and $354 out of SFO. Thanks all!
