Last I have seen from AA,, the first five to be retired will be in 2020, with 23 more in 2021. But as we all know, plans change so stay tuned.

Not gonna happen. They will fly these things until the cycles prevent it.


They didn't fly 757 and 767 until the cycles prevent it. Cue N174AA.

AA is the only airline in the US that doesn't and won't have lavs in the AFT galley on any aircraft. Their flight attendants should feel lucky.

I was on a Delta 321 and felt so bad for the flight attendants. They had to deal with people stepping in the AFT galley to go to the lavs, lines forming in the galley, bad smell. You could tell they hated that plane for that. Same with their 319s.

As far as I can tell they just added power and USB to the existing seats.

Apples to oranges. Completely different eras of introduction (pre-1988 vs post-1988). There's a reason a 2002 738 fetches much more than an unwanted late build 752 (which never should have been in production at that point).

Boxes added to old seats. Maybe some of the seats got yet another coat of paint since the armrests and such peel easily from the many coatings of HP, US.

Exactly. A high time 737 NG is going for a very low lease rate. That’s why these birds will hang around for a lot longer. On the 757‘s and 767‘s both are being sold astronomical rates to be used in a second life freighters. Think about it this way the capital investment to keep an existing aircraft in the fleet is very minimal.

Yes, thats correct. I think I heard that they are having 3 or 4 738's out for the conversions at any one time. The 738s are getting the Oasis interior in GSO, TUL and BFI if I remember right.

You wouldn't have been wrong until you tagged yourself to his ridiculous 1988 obsession, failing to consider that AA has retired A320s which were introduced after 1988 and comparable in technology to a 737NG, nor that AA is planning to imminently retire E190s.

Very few A320's of a similar age to N174AA have been retired. Same goes with 738's.

Very "few" AA A320s - well, very "few" AA 75L of similar age to N174AA have been retired.

In fact AA retired N678AW, a 2005 A320 with plenty of cycles left, which has now been leased to Indigo. Point being, if AA is willing to retire N678AW, they'll be willing to retire N901AN or N967UW, regardless of "post-1988 introduction" or "plenty of cycles left". They won't necessarily fly 738s, A320s, E190s, or A333s until there's zero cycles left, if there's a better option for their bottom line.

Delta (as well as jetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, and Alaska) have the SpaceFlex design that has a half galley and two lavs in the aft galley as seen in the photo below. AA has decided to keep the traditional full galley with two lavs forward of the aft doors.

Oh wow! That does look terrible. Thanks for sharing!


Pretty sad when you have more room in a porta potty than the lavs on planes anymore :(

Yep. Taking much longer than the stated two weeks. Although that should be expected considering this is the first frame.

Yes, as I understand it. More B787-8s start arriving in 2020 and B787-9s in 2023...of course, subject to change.

That's it, for the first batch for 42 787s: 20 -8s and 22 -9s. The deliveries of the second batch, 22 -8s and eventually 25 -9s will start next year when more 763s leave the fleet. American is now down to 23 763s with 5 leaving this year, 13 leaving next year and the last 5 leaving in 2021. The -8s of the second batch, the first of which will be delivered sometimes next year, are to replace the last 763s, The -9s will start replacing the 77Es in 2023.

What type of new bins will the “Oasis “A321s get? Will they be the pivot down? Or will they be like the bins installed on the A321NEOs?

Does AA have a contender of what the A319 replacement might be? Perhaps the A220/ 7MAX?

Lastly, does anyone know the paint cycle for the birds at AA? Since most airlines have it set at 6/7 years, I’d imagine some of the earlier planes that were first painted in the new livery are due for a repaint?

Agreed. This is perhaps the silliest obsession in A.net history. After all, the 737 and 767 are still in production. And the 744 entered service in 1989, but is no longer in production (the MD-11 is also dead). Revisionism - bending the facts to fits one's personal opinion.


What were the 737 variants in production in 1988? Wasn't it the 733/734/735/736 around that time? The 737 may still be in production, via the 738/739/MAX. Maybe that's where he was going, considering the 737 NG program was spurred in part by the 320 entering the market.

Gonna be down an additional MD80 after today. N9624T (nose # 4XK) is currently scheduled to ferry DFW-ROW tomorrow for retirement. Last revenue trip for it is AA2330 MKE-DFW this evening. Unsure if there's any additional MD80's leaving before the fall mass retirement.

I think that the one you are talking about N9624T is the last MD-82 remaining in the fleet. Other than this one, all the remaining MD-80s at this point are ex-TWA late 90s built MD-83s. After the last -82 leaves the remaining -83s will stay until September when the final retirement will take place. I could be wrong so you can quote me if that is the case.

Actually, N501AA is the remaining MD-82. N9624T was a TWA bird, and is an MD-83.

So, if I am reading this right, there are 67 Oasis 737 planes?


Yes, thats correct. I think I heard that they are having 3 or 4 738's out for the conversions at any one time. The 738s are getting the Oasis interior in GSO, TUL and BFI if I remember right.


It's actually PAE, not BFI.

Well that sucks. Just caught 4XK just a few weeks ago here at PIT. Too bad. :(

What type of new bins will the “Oasis “A321s get? Will they be the pivot down? Or will they be like the bins installed on the A321NEOs?

Does AA have a contender of what the A319 replacement might be? Perhaps the A220/ 7MAX?

Lastly, does anyone know the paint cycle for the birds at AA? Since most airlines have it set at 6/7 years, I’d imagine some of the earlier planes that were first painted in the new livery are due for a repaint?


AA doesn't appear to be interested in A319 replacement. Many of the A319s are quite new, and they're leasing more ex-Frontier birds.

The bins are not pivot bins but then are larger and allow for the bags to be placed on their side to fit more baggage. They’re called the AirspaceXL bins and AA is the launch customer for them.

Once all the MD80s and 767s are gone and the 321 retrofit is complete then AA's fleet will be perfect.

757s are looking pretty tired and they don’t have enough life left in them to make a new interior worth it. I don’t think any of the A320s have been retrofitted yet either.

Do we know when the 757s will be gone?
