Anyone know why there's pics of like 10 AA
762's sitting at Roswell?
There are a total of 14 American 767-200s sitting in the desert that have been grounded, in order for AA
to cut down on capacity, as well as 28 former TWA MD
-80s for the same reason. AA
is hoping that someday those plpanes will return to service, but I'm not holding my breath. Eight of them are standard 200s, and the remaining six are the ER
version. The first eight are getting long in the tooth- 22 years old.
I believe that those 762s were removed with no plans to bring them back (due to reducing capacity and to simply the fleet), and AA
has said that they want to remove the other 762s, but I do not see that happening for a while due to them being used on those mentioned routes.
According to Sabre one of the Roswell airplanes has come out and has gone to Kansas City for work. I think it was N319AA. Also the TWA MD
-80's are coming out of the desert as soon as they can configure them to AA
