You keep asking the same question about the 738's over and over again.
To answer you, no AA
is NOT taking ANYMORE NEW
DELIVERIES UNTIL 2006.
In 2006 AA
will continue with 12 738 deliveries. Even if the economy rapidly turns around AA
isn't going to start accepting these aircraft. They have 20 some TW MD
-80s and about a dozen 762's in storage in the desert that could be reactivated as needed.
738 crew base and increase in 738 flying is a result of the overhaul coming to AA
system. As the A300's and 757's are converted out of MRTC, they will be deployed for the most part only on traditional leisure routes. Key business routes, such as many out of DFW
that are currently served by the 757 will change over to 738. As a generalization 737 and 757 flying will swap between DFW
will see more 738s at the expense of 757's. MIA
will see more 757's at the expense of 738's.
