American quietly retires the last two Boeing 767-200s (for now)

American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) as planned and previously reported, quietly replaced and retired its last two Boeing 767-200s that were operated at the end on the trans-continental routes. The two venerable aircraft were replaced with new Airbus A321s.

Officially the last revenue flight was operated with the pictured Boeing 767-223 ER N319AA (msn 22320) on flight AA 30 from Los Angeles to New York (JFK) departing LAX on the evening of May 7 and arriving at JFK during the early morning of May 8 per Frequent Business Traveler.

The pictured N319AA was delivered to AA on November 18, 1985 and was retired after almost 29 years of faithful service.

American began operating the type in 1982. However when US Airways is finally merged into the “new” American Airlines, AA will again operate the type.

US Airways continues to operate the Boeing 767-200. US Airways will draw down its 767-200 fleet and to continue to operate the type into 2015. Both American Airlines and US Airways are now part of the American Airlines Group. Eventually US Airways will be merged into American as the two carriers work towards a single operating certificate (SOC). When this happens, the new and larger American will be operating the type once again albeit for a short time again.

The old Boeing 767-200s are not likely to be repainted into the new 2013 American Airlines livery, even when the US Airways Boeing 767s join the fleet. It is just too impractical for this soon to be retired aircraft type. The 1968 American livery will probably be the last color scheme worn by the AA 767-200s.
