Pilot Bases: LAX, SFO, ORD, BOS, MIA with DCA starting this month. LGA is expected to open by year end and DFW is rumored possibility in early 2001 (it will be only base without 737 pilots by then).
HUD: still in certification phase for low visibility approaches. Most of the original aircraft have been retrofitted with HUD. All future 737s will come with HUD installed at Boeing. FAA certification for what AA calls the "Lower Minimums Program" is a very long and tedious process which is estimated at about 50% complete.
