The oldest 319s in the AA fleet are 21 years old. I doubt any with be retired soon.

The oldest 320 is just shy of 22 years old.

The oldest 321 is short of 19 years.

AA is talking about big reductions in CAPEX to improve cash flow. That requires a cut in new frame deliveries. The 319/320/321s will be flown to economic end of life.


I think that the 320s will be gone before the 319s and 321s will. It's not just how old the oldest one of each type is, it's the average age of the fleet for each type that also matters. Look at the average fleet of the 320s, it's significantly higher than that of the 319s and that of the 321s is even lower. Because remember, the 319s and 321s include a more recent order placed by LAA earlier this decade, but the 320s all come from US , some of them were with HP previously. If AA and US had not merged, only the 319s and 321s dating from an order placed in the early 2010s would be in the fleet, no 320s would be in the fleet.

I think the 738s from the late 90s, the A320s and the LUS319s will be around to mid decade 2020. I wonder if AA will scrounge around for used a/c like the A319s that came from Frontier?

A21N N407AN also appears to be scheduled for delivery tomorrow, XFW-PIT.

Tail number on FR24 is wrong, but aibfamilyflights has it listed as to be delivered tomorrow.

Looks like A321s N405AN and N407AN are both en route from XFW to PIT for delivery, about an hour apart.
