A couple of weeks ago, I was searching AA
.Com for flights on ORD
in December, and there was 1 F100 listed flying the route. This makes some sense, because a friend of mine who flies for AA
told me that management was considering pushing back retirement to the end of the year, because bookings had picked up, ORD
was running into delays, and some of the Fokkers could have their C-checks pushed by by a few months.
Whether management has decided to go ahead with the retirement in September, I don't know.
