|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Thread starter):|
What about AA's A300 replacement? None of the routes served by AA's A300s require the range of the 787-8, and on the routes served by the A300, cargo is in high demand. The 767-300 has less cargo space than the A300. The 787-3 may be the perfect replacement for the A300 fleet. What are your thoughts on this?

AA just extended the AB6 leases for another 2 years meaning they'll be around for a while longer at least past 2010.

If they want to re-sale, they better pick the -8

n a AA configuration the 787-8 would be a huge decrease in available seats. Don't forget the A300's hold 267 passengers

AA isn't in the business to re-sale. The 787-8 could in no way way replace the A300. In a AA configuration the 787-8 would be a huge decrease in available seats. Don't forget the A300's hold 267 passengers and most of the time those flights are filled to the rim and often over sold.
