Default American Airlines to retire Boeing 767-300 fleet.

Sad to say good bye to one of the work horses of AA's fleet. They also announced E-190 retirement plans.
Maddogs will be phased out completely next year.

Sad news indeed. I love catching them operating the 45 minute flight between Orlando and Miami...Great way to ride a short domestic widebody flight.

I didn't know AA uses 767s for such short flights. Definitely a great way to jump on an 767. What would be the aircraft that will take over those routes? A 737-Max 8?

The final scheduled American Airlines Boeing 767-200 flight was Flight 30, which departed Los Angeles International Airport at 11:40 p.m. local time on May 7th 2014 and arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport the next morning at 8:01 a.m., six minutes later than planned.

In the mid 1980's I used to take the Eastern Airlines shuttle between NY (LGA) and Boston. I know some of the A300s used for shuttle service were all coach; the aircraft on this route had a section of first class seats (not service). Regardless, if you were aware of that, it was nice...once you boarded you turned left and had a nice comfortable (albeit short) flight.

I have flown on AA from Orlando to Miami during off Peak hours and they usually use a regional jet or propeller planes. Can't remember the exact plane I was on. Miami is one of their busiest hubs, so they fly you to Miami from Orlando to go on to your next destination, like Delta does with their Atlanta hub from Orlando. I flew from Orlando to Miami to catch a none stop to Montreal.

Very interesting development with regard to retiring the E190 fleet. It appears that they are making an even bigger commitment to the E175 with today's order for 15.
