Re: American Airlines Confirms 767 Retirement Date

Good retirement date , 767 product are inferior on AA widebody fleet due lack of PTV. Plus, the engines fitted are non FADEC CF6-80C2. The newest at retirement date will have 17-18 years, highly probable to be converted to freighter following older sisters. I learned something new here... I always ...

Re: American Airlines Confirms 767 Retirement Date

And by 2021 none of the fleet will have PTV as AA has already said they are all being removed. none of the NARROWBODY fleet (minus A321 Transcon). No plans to remove PTV from widebodies. The LAA 319s are keeping the PTVs as well. Thanks. I forgot those sub-fleet. (sharklet winged A319). A321 and 73...

Some of Delta’s 747 were 2003/2004 delivered maybe they will find a home. I thought later build 747’s already came with the modification


The last two were 2002 delivered and the only two tail numbered with Northwest IATA Code : N675NW and N676NW . All other were N6xxUS.

Re: Why didn’t DL, AA, and CO order the 747-400?

AA and DL at the time had very limited TPAC network. AA could have bought 744 as MD11 early replacement increasing LHR capacity (LHR slots were acquired from TWA) and 763ER engine commonality, if AA had ordered 763ER with FADEC engines. But Crandall disliked to risk with quads. KE was the airline th...

Re: AeroMexico launches ICN service today

Is there a plane that could make MEX-ICN-MEX non-stop in both directions while carrying a full load of passengers? No, MEX is a hot and high airport. 789 have a bit longer range than 788, but transpacific operations beyond NRT won't be unrestricted. AM used MTY stopover in the past when 767 were us...
