American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) management has decided to early retire its fleet of 20 Embraer 190s at the end of 2019. The E190s are operated mainly on Shuttle routes from its Philadelphia base. The company concluded the fleet was too small to economically maintain.
American has also decided to begin retiring its aging fleet of nine Airbus A330-300s in 2017. The A330-300 fleet should be retired by the end of 2018.
American is also reducing its Boeing 767-300 ER fleet to 17 aircraft by the end of 2018.
