American Airlines is still planning to begin Boeing 787 revenue service domestically between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Chicago (ORD) on May 7, 2015. The Boeing 787 will then shift to the AA international network to serve AA’s daily nonstop flight between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Beijing (PEK) beginning on June 2 and on the nonstop flight between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Buenos Aires (EZE) on June 4.

Dallas/Fort Worth – Shanghai (Pudong) 787 service will also commence on June 26 replacing existing Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft.

In other news, both American Airlines and US Airways expect a single operating certificate (SOC) from the FAA on April 8, in essence ending US Airways. The combined company would then begin to operate under the new American Airlines AOC. US Airways’ Cactus call sign, as we previously reported, is also being retired. Some operating policies and procedures will remain separate under the new SOC.
