Is there a designated subfleet that we can expect to see in the UK? I know Delta have the ex TWA B757s and the whole former Continental B757-200 fleets has been over but is there a way of knowing what AA B757s we can expect?

AA has a subfleet of 18 757s, know as 75Ls, that UK has seen and will see for the time being. AA sends these aircraft to other European cities such as CDG, BRU, and MAD as well as cities in Brazil and several domestic and Caribbean routes. On the outside, they are identical to to 102 other 757s however, the 18 75Ls have slanted lie-flat business seats and an 'updated' Y cabin.

This is the 75L fleet (courtesy of DFWEagle):

5ES (N184AN)
5ET (N185AN)
5EU (N186AN)
5EV (N187AN)
5EW (N188AN)
5EX (N189AN)
5EY (N190AA)
5FA (N191AN)
5FB (N192AN)
5FC (N193AN)
5FD (N194AA)
5FL (N176AA)
5FM (N177AN)
5FN (N174AA)
5FP (N179AA)
5FR (N178AA)
5FS (N173AN)
5FT (N172AJ)

That's interesting, thanks. Is any Manchester spotter able to advise on the aircraft that flew the AA92/93 JFK-MAN-JFK run a few years back?

I don't understand how airlines from America send over little planes and UK airlines manage to send over very big planes.  

I love the 757 but I wouldn't expect to fly one on a scheduled airline all the way across the Atlantic.

Because there are only 2 UK airlines flying from the UK to the USA, and there are many more USA airlines.

Relative to the UK, most of the 757 service from the USA is to secondary airports rather than London. Exactly what TATL services are UK carriers offering from MAN, BHX, EDI, etc. on ANY kind of aircraft outside of seasonal charter operations?

If I'm not mistaken, VS MAN-MCO is on 747s

VS to MCO is about it outside of charter flights. Most flights into LHR from US airlines are with widebody aircraft.

With regards to AA92/93, depending on how many years ago the aircraft could have been any one of the fleet. When AA first started sending B757s across the pond they were "standard" domestically configured aircraft. Various routes to MAN, SNN and possibly DUB we're sold as economy only (not sure if this was true of all 757 TATL flights, or just selected markets), with the 22 domestic first seats allocated to elites, staff etc. with economy service



So long 701, it was nice knowing you.
