After the announcement of Americans aquisition of 15 new 767's, I wondered why AA wasn't getting new 757's. The 767's were purchased to replace TWA's 767's to have engine commonality with the rest of AA's fleet. With American's 757's being RR powered, I didn't think TWA's 757's would mix. Someone in A.net explained that the reason was that AA was waiting to see what would happen with the UAL/UA merger. AA was to take over/purchase the 757's from US as part of a "support" angle of the merger. Now that the merger seems dead, will AA buy new RR 757's to replace TWA P&W powered 757's? And if so, could they possibly be 757-300's?
Very curious to hear what everyone thinks.
