Default American Airlines 767-200 question

Hey guys,
My St. Maarten trip on May 12, 2012 was originally scheduled with AA on their 757 from JFK-SXM. But now they sent me a notification that they changed the reservation from a 757 directly to SXM, to a Boeing 767-200 to Miami, and then connecting on a 737 to SXM. I've flown on AA's 767-300 before with great delight, so I was wondering if I would experience the same with the 763's little brother.

And a side question: how many of AA's 737's have BSI? My reservation now has three 737s instead of two (my return flight was all 737s and hasn't changed).

The 762 is in a 3-class transcon configuration, but the JFK-MIA flight is sold as 2-class, with Business Class seats being sold as coach. Try to book a seat in the Business section, so you get the extra space and bigger seat!

The AA 762s will probably start being phased out soon but to answer your question what OP said.

NYCAAer, I noticed that the 767-300s on the MIA-JFK morning flight use the former business class seats too because i noticed they had controllers as if they were to control some kind of AVOD

and yeah Cathay, that's why I was surprised, that AA still hasn't phased them out, but I guess they wont to get rid of the gas guzzling md-80s first

AA rebooked my reservation and put me in seat 34J. SeatGuru says its not the best seat but neither are all of them on AAs 762. thanks guys, looking forward to it!

And the 762 will be replaced by A321 as it was said during the big AA order
this summer.

Have a good trip. I did a similar trip except my aircraft from ORD-MIA was on the One World 767-300, then a 738 to SXM. My mom works for AA and regularly flies the transcon 762's from JFK to out west. Last 762 I flew on was back in the day on TWA. Enjoy!

And not only that, we will lose the last WB on the LAX-JFK route.

Grow up lads, the 762 has had it's time. Boeing could quite easily have killed the A321 off by evolving the 757-200 line instead of closing it down. Sh*t (as they say) happens...

Well if the market demanded a 757NG Boeing would have built one. At the time of closing the 757 line there was no demand for that airplane anymore.

Yes but what's happened to the market since ? I would suggest Boeing were too quick to close down the 757. A 'neo' 757 would undoubtedly blow the A321 out of the water. As it stands, the A321 Neo looks likely to clean up in areas where the 757 latterly excelled, particulalry in the regional trans-con and trans-atlantic sectors.

But at the they closed it no one wanted more 757s. Why would they keep the line open and lose money when no one wanted the airplane?

Any data to back up why? The early 321's are dogs on transcon routes, but the IGW models with higher rated V2500's make it a much better performing airplane. Couple that with sharklets and you have a pretty decent airplane.

Look for the 320 family to be a very, very common site at airports in the near future. Be in mind I'm a HUGE Boeing fan, but have come to the realization Boeing dropped the ball in a lot of arenas to let Airbus capitalize.

Why does he need data to support his opinion on simply not liking the A321? I sure as hell don't like it compared to a classic 767-200 simply because it's a fugly plastic plane. Do I need data? Nope!

Yeah, I'm a Boeing boy too. I think that Airbuses look just too awkward. I do however love the NEO for the A320s (mainly because it makes it look more Boeing-like) with the sharklets. If this goes well for Airbus then we can expect to see more upgrades for their widebodies while Boeing just sits there modifying the 737. Don't get me wrong, I love the 737, but I think that when AA placed their order, Boeing should not have gone with the decision to once again modify their 737, rather build a completely new type of plane that can serve medium-short range routes, like a hybrid of the 767-200 and a 737...with the body of the 767, the efficiency of a 737 and the feeling of a 787...but nope, Boeing decided to prolong the 737 line for another 5-10 years

But until all-or most Airbuses have the NEO, I will still be a Boeing dude...I mean I'm not even looking forward to flying on a Spirit A32S (btw what is an A32S?) next week from ACY-FLL...they are so uncomfortable compared to the 737

Some airlines put A32S as scheduled aircraft which means it can be any of the A320 family aircraft (318,319,320,321) the airline operates. Gives them more flexibility.
