Widebody Domestic Service In The US

Wed Nov 10, 2004 3:33 pm

i am going to book a flight on a CO 777 from EWR - IAH in january and was just wondering are their any other large aircraft doing domestic US runs ?

767-200 767-300 does not count in my opinon

762 and 763 are, by definition, wide-bodies as they feature more than one aisle. Maybe you should have reworded your topic heading if you didn't want these two included  Big grin.

Not mainland US, but USAirways has had an A330 running their PHL-SJU route before.

Just fly Delta from ATL to MCO/FLL/TPA/MIA. They run the 763/764 all the time on those routes. ATL-LAS and ATL-LAX also get Domestic Widebody service.

I'm guessing united still fly a few 777s and 747s between, DEN, ORD, LAX, SFO and IAD?

AA flies the 777 between DFW-ORD, DFW-LAX, DFW-MIA, and return. They will also fly the 777 from JFK-MIA during the fall while some A300s go through maintenance.

Wow this topic would go on forever! 763's and 762's ARE Widebodies so they must definetly would fit right in to this topic.

Just out of the top of my head here is an example of widebody domestic service from MIA: ( their might be more )

AA: 1) A300-600R to JFK, BOS 2) 777-200ER to JFK, DFW
3) 767-300ER to LAX, SFO 4) 767-200ER to JFK

DL: 767-200/300/400 to ATL

im taking a 763 from DEN-SFO in a few weeks. It's on a monday night too so i bet the flight is gonna be empty. I'm hoping they won't swap it out  Sad Last year my friends went MLI-ORD-DEN-PHX, and they were supposed to get a 777 from DEN-ORD on the way back but they got a plane change...to a 737. what shitty luck.

I remember a while back that United was flying 744's between LAX and Chicago-ORD. Don't know if they still do. I could probably go look it up on their web site but of course, I am way too lazy for that.  Smile

It was a continuing flight from Australia. I had a friend who was visiting L.A. board at LAX and catch a connecting flight at ORD to CLT. I remember tracking the flight online and seeing it doing over 500 knots over the Midwest. That made for a short flight  Big grin

Not a favorite but just remembered another Widebody out of MIA from the 90's: TOWER AIR 747-100/200 to JFK.

Another Current Widebody out of MIA:
Aerolineas Argentinas : EZE-MIA-JFK-MIA-EZE on A340-200...although it's a stopover, MIA-JFK is still "domestic".

Today's flight schedules between LAX-ORD, indicates that they're 5 Airbus flights, 5 757-200 flights, two 767 flights and 1,777 flight.

Also, the days of DAILY US transcontinental 747 coast to coast air travel are gone  Sad Fly on a 747 domestically while you still can!

I was on a DL 763 CVG-ATL back in April. I was surprised to get it.

I think Delta operates the most widebody domestic flights in the US, especially ATL (of course). Off the top of my head, they use 763's or 764's to ATL, CVG, SLC, DFW, JFK, LGA, MIA, MCO, TPA, PBI, FLL, HNL, SJU, LAX, SFO, & OGG. Who knows how many more destinations from Atlanta they use them to. Not sure how many flights are using 762's, but there has to be many of them flying around. I believe they still use 772's to MCO from ATL if I'm not mistaken. No way can the other majors beat Delta with that lineup.

On the Denver scene. . .

LUV4JFK: You can go ahead and add in DEN to that list. We get DL 763s and 762s from SLC and ATL, and even sometimes CIN. Before the DL L1011 retirement, we got those too.

From UA currently, their domestic routes bring us 744s, 777s and 763s from SEA, SFO, LAX, ORD, IAD.


Domestic widebody service is definately decreasing because of increased frquencies, but may make a return over time due to too many frequencies, therefore a need for larger a/c to do the job of two or three.

DL flies all three versions of the 767 into SEA although the -400 seems
to have been taken out of the ATL-SEA market for the fall and winter.
It was cool to be on a DL domestic config 763 from ATL-SEA last month
with only 100 in Y. Lots of room to stretch out!
