Is AA Receiving New 772's?

Sat Apr 15, 2006 3:56 am

As I look out my office windown on the 23rd floor in downtown Seattle I see a AA 772 on final to BFI. Is AA still ordering/receiving new 777's, or is there another reason for the 777 to landing at Boeing Field?
Heia Norge!

That's a plane Boeing has leased from AA for about a year to do tests. As for AA, they did receive two 777s earlier this year, bringing their total -- including the plane you saw that is leased to Boeing -- to 47, and they have another 7 on order for deliver after 2013.

AA got a new 772ER last month.

The plane you keep seeing is N6055X, which N780AN.

AA took a new 772ER last month, N767AJ.

Not to split hairs, but they've recieved one so far this year with one more due in a few months.

And yes, the 772 you saw on final was most likely the 772 Boeing leased from AA.
