For those that are interested, there are three 763's in AA colors now at STL.

Ship numbers; 390AA, 363AA & 393AN.

I'm assuming they are replacing the last of the TWA 763's that are now being phased out. The end of an era is near. Get your pics of the TWA 763's fast.

I think so too. I haven't been in STL but it must be right. TWA had 9 767-300's left but American is phasing them out in favor of newer GE powered 767-300's. The three ship numbers you mentioned, are they aircrafts currently in service with American or brand new aircrafts just coming out fresh out of the factory? I knew American had 9 more 767-300's on order but I didn't know if to this day all 9 were still waiting to be delivered. Thanks for the info.

I have a feeling these are aircraft that have been in AA's fleet. They didn't appear that new. Besides, I think AA deferred delivery on the newer aircraft anyway.

Too late.....all of the original TWA 763's are now retired.

Those 763's are are seeing are operated with AA metal now. 2 of those, operating the HNL & OGG flights are in "Hawaii configuration" I believe they are 363 and 390. The third is operating the LGW flight in 3-class config. Currently there has been a shuffling of AA's 763's fleet. There are only 8 763's in "Hawaii configuration" 2 have been pulled off of ORD-HNL and one of the DFW-HNL flights to operate STL-HNL and STL-OGG. ORD-HNL and 1 of the DFW-HNL flights are now operating with the standard 3-class 763's, but sold as 2-class. This is temporary until the entire 763 fleet gets reconfigured into the new 2-class layout. Then then ORD & DFW fleets will again be 2-class.

Those are all 763's that have been in AA's fleet. The 9 new 763's on order will come in the 2nd half of 2003.

I'm assuming that at least one of those nine would be based here in STL for a LAX or MCO run. I flew STL-MCO on a 763 october 13th and it was completely full.
Thx,

There is still one last 767 in new TWA colors sitting on the Charlie Pad. For you STL spotters, I found out through AA maintenance that you will have one last shot to get a pic of both the 767 with the new and old colors. There is currently (1:05Z) a 767 with new TWA colors sitting on the Charlie Pad. The parking pad next to highway 70. Also, 391LF is due back tonight too. This is the last aircraft that has the old TWA colors. They are scheduled to be there by the end of the night. Now for the spotters, here is the good news. These two aircraft are scheduled to be there for a few days awaiting their return flight to the lessors. I don't have info on what day they are leaving, but I was told by AA management that they should be there for a couple days. The weather seems to be cooperating as well. Nice weather for the next couple days.

Get 'em while you can folks cause there isn't much time left!!!!!
