"I'm not in a unionized job but I find seniority rules after airline mergers are so ridiculous."
You're telling me. I have the TWA employee benefit catalogue book thing at home. It is crazy. It would be very nice to see TWs 767-300 models back at it but as stated they are mostly else where at the time being. As for the 762 rumor, TW
had 5 762s in their fleet. The A/C were owned and not leased! These A/C were on the older side and some of them were stored as of mid 2001.
N601TW 11/22/82 Stored at VCV
N602TW 12/08/82 Stored at VCV
N604TW 02/23/83 Last Revenue Flight was on 03/30/01, withdrawn from service, parked at MZJ
N605TW 12/17/82 Last Revenue Flight was on 04/07/01 then parked at JFK
N610TW 11/23/83 Last Revenue Flight was on 03/22/01, withdrawn from service, parked at JFK
They are all older but, AA
does have about 15 762s around the same age. They are powered by JT9D-7R4D engines. AA
's 767s are powered by the CF6-80 family of engines.
Also, on a side note, DL
operates a mix of powerplants within the 767 family- maybe that's why they are loosing $$.
