AA Boeing 757 retirement schedule

Sat Jul 22, 2017 1:21 am

I have noticed that American Airlines is retireing their Boeing 757s at a slow pace.When does AA plan on having their 757s completely retired.
most of their 757s were delivered in the 1980s and 1990s.

They may be younger than the mad dogs and can serve more routes.

I think that by the mid 2020s they'll all be gone, late 2020s at the latest. I don't expect to see any left in the fleet by 2030.Because by then the youngest 767 will be 25, the last ones were built and delivered in 2003. They have now 30 of them left, a few more will be gone by the end of this year. Half the fleet was refurbished with the new C Class product, so some of those are likely to stay past 2020s. But again, they'll all be gone before 2030. I would expect the final flight to arrive either in DFW from HNL or MIA from somewhere in South America.

Oops. I was talking about the 767s. Sorry if I confused you. The 757s also should be gone by the mid to late 2020s, the domestic 757s are on their way out now, as the ex-US/HP 757s are but the International 757s which have 16 seats in the C Class Cabin, I believe 20 of them, are more likely to stay in the fleet longer, ten more years or so And they will continue to fly TATL routes out of JFK and PHL, as well as MIA to Central/South American. JFK-MIA will continue to see maybe one or two daily 757s, just for repositioning the planes from one hub to the other hub.

Back to 757s, there were 51 at the end of 2016; 17 are supposed to go this year. With 75 A320neo (family) deliveries and 80 737MAX deliveries scheduled through 2021, I think that will clean out the 757 collection.
