Currently, AA are deploying some of their A333’s onto the CLT-PHX-HNL rotation, as well deploying their A333’s onto the CLT-LAS route.
In terms of PHL, AA mostly dispatch their A332/333 aircraft onto the PHL-LAX route. This flight is currently assigned to the A332 aircraft, however the A333 was also deployed onto the same route.
AA also used to send their A332/333 aircraft to MIA from PHL a couple of years ago. But currently, MIA is dominated by the 767s which are slowly dwindling in size from the AA fleet. I’m not too sure as to whether if we will see a return of the Airbus widebody to MIA this year, but I wouldn’t be surprised as to when the A332/333 becomes a common visitor for domestic flying at MIA in the future, after AA pulls the plug on the 767s.
From what I had seen earlier in the year, it sounded like the 788s would end up supplanting the 767s on PHL-MIA, unless I'm confusing that with PHL-CLT. Regardless, I'm glad I got that 767 flight in last year before they're retired. I also thought MIA would be seeing more 788s when the new planes are put into service (again, I might be thinking of CLT instead of MIA).
