the 767 number will start decreasing too! those rust buckets are operational nightmares and the interiors very shabby. Too bad they are not scheduled to go away at a faster pace...looks like after the end of this summer around (6) frames will be retired, more in 2019!
unless you know something even AA doesn't know, there a no 767 expected to be retired until next year. The. current scheduled retirement plan is (6) in 2019, (13) in 2020 and (5) in 2021.
So they'll all be gone in 2022.
I suspect that the final flight will arrive in MIA. MIA will be the last hub to see the 757 and 767, like it was the last hub to still see the 727 back in the early 2000s. JFK will loose the 767 before MIA will, end of next year probably. I also suspect that by the time the last 767 leaves, 24 757s will still be in the fleet, the nAAtive ones that were configured for International flying. Gone also, in 2022, will be the ex-US 757s still flying on PHX-Hawaii runs.
The US 757s doing the Hawaii runs were announced to be removed starting next year, replaced with ETOPS A321neos.
