Here's another question, AA wants to get rid of TWA's 763's, fact. That would make sense for them to be removed from the fleet, thus not be repainted. When are they going to be returned to the lessors? There are 9 763's from TWA still in the fleet. The only routes they fly are STL-HNL, STL-OGG, STL-LGW, STL-LAX 2x. With excess fleet capacity, couldn't AA easily get rid of those 763's and either place them with their own or with another aircraft. STL-LAX could be handled with any aircraft, maybe an TW 757. That leaves HNL, OGG, & LGW that would need a 767. For the Hawaii flights AA would have to probably convert 1 or 2 more 763's to 2 class Hawaii configuration. The LGW flight could be done with a 762, 763, or even aa 777. With low aircraft utilization, is this a posibility or will the TW 763's be around for a while longer.
Also, what is the status with the 15 763's due to start being delivered in 2002. AA defered 29 of 45-ish aircraft for next year. Are the 763's still on schedule or where they included in the deferment.
