yes, AA does have the A300. It is used on many routes, including jfk-lhr. I was on one last summer

Cool! Are they being retired? Hows the service on it? How does the plane look/ride?

AA has no plans as of yet to retire their A300s. Currently 8 are in a 3 class configuration and used on routes from JFK, EWR, and BOS to London. The remainder are used on Caribbean routes to/from JFK, BOS, PHL, MIA, SJU. The 2 class a/c seat F16Y250/1.
The aircraft are A300-605Rs, powered by GE CF6s.

Wow, only 34?
I was on one last summer from Bogota, Colombia to Miami. And it was a nice flight. So, yes, they do.

I have seen a lot of them here at LHR.

Does any one know about how old these aircraft are? Are they about ten years old? More/Less?

They're great. Nice seats, nice service, and great ride. Also, they have a new inflight entertainment system, so i dont think american plans to retire them any time soon.

I rode one down to Santo Domingo last week, and just got off one a few hours ago. They are great, comfortable up in 1st class.

Out of JFK also you have a good chance to get one if you fly American. You can get a flight to London Heathrow on an A300, out of the six JFK-LHR daily flights at least three of them are A300's.
But it's true if you fly American from JFK to MIA chances are it's an A300. I hope that they keep them for a while, at least ten more years, because they are nice. And it's the only airline in the United States that still has A300's. Continental also used to have those but they got rid of them a few years ago. Pan Am and Eastern also had them.
The A300-600 is American's only Airbus product.
