American Airlines is tentatively planning the last McDonnell Douglas MD-80 revenue flight for September 4, 2019.
The special flight, renumbered flight AA 80, is scheduled to operate between Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago (O’Hare).
American currently operates one DC-9-82 (N501AA) and 27 DC-9-83s. The carrier operated 362 at its peak.
The MD-80 fleet was never repainted in the new livery because of the pending retirement.
