How's the 777 flying out of MIA? Seems to be getting more junior these days. Expanding or just status quo?

Some reduction. they just announced the daytime flight 777 MIA to GRU Sao Paulo is ending. It was a 3 day trip daytime/daytime. Very good trip.

Did anyone pick up on the earnings report that the 767/757 is completely gone mid 2020? I noticed.

MIA has some good flying on the 777. I did it for 4 years. Right now I think they have a DFW turn out of MIA. Nov-April is daytime EZE (Buenos Aires).

They used to have a 2 day LAX. And the LAX 777 pilots have a 2 day MIA.

CDG,MAD,BCN,LHR and Milan I think.

Just curious.. if you were on a certain aircraft, let's say the 787 doing intl in one smaller base but wanted to fly some destinations in another
base.. Do they have lines built in at AA to fly in a variety of airports or are they primarily built to be out and backs at only the airports served out of a certain base.

Sry that was prob written way more complicated than it should.

The wide bodies typically start and end in their respective bases.

However, there are exceptions. There's an RDU-LHR trip. There's no 777 base in RDU, so it's staffed by some other base. In the past it's been any of them, but as of late, it seems to be staying in ORD. I believe it's a 5 or 6 day trip with deadheads to RDU on each end.

I've also seen 6 day trips where you fly from your respective base to LHR, then to another wide body base, then back to LHR and back home.

In other words, it's not common, but not unheard of.

You can pick up trips in other bases but yeah agree with above post.

RDU LHR is sometimes a 767 but mostly 777. I see MIA crews A1 all the time on my MIA-RDU flights.

I don't think the whole earnings report would be on Jetnet.
It was when speaking with Jamie baker. They mentioned ALL 767's and 757's gone mid 2020.
Originally they were gonna keep 25 of each.

That was in an FA crew news as well. Nothing new.

That's still seven years. Quite a while in aviation. Chances are a recession will happen before then and they'll go with that.

Been a 777 for quite some time now. Haven't seen a 767 on it in ages. They upgraded the equipment on it a while back. It's been crewed by all bases, but lately it's been ORD, due to the lack of any other 777 up there.

When I was 777 FO I flew the RDU LGW then LHR. Some transition during the year notably Thurs or Saturday it is a 767. I spoke with the pilots that were on my flight to RDU.
And yes itís mostly been 777 since 2003.

I noticed when Delta started up their RDU-CDG flight with a 757 AA used a 767 on the LHR route during the off peak seasons. Delta upgauged to a 767 and since then AA has kept the 777 on it year round except for when the 777's were getting their seats retrofitted.
