well that’s unfortunate. I flew on American 757s to Quito and back, I thought they were very nice on the inside. We flew economy and there was plenty of room, had a widebody vibe going, seats were very comfy. 10/10 for me…
I flew N197AN and N195AN.

I wonder what American will use to fly into EGE after the 757s retire? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Ok Canadian boi

@Ishrion do you know what the 757 will be flying next year? I’m going to try to do a trip with the DL, AA, and UA 757 before they retire.

JFK/MIA/PHL/DFW-EGE should see the 757.

Hub to hub like PHL/JFK/DFW-MIA and DFW-PHL/JFK might have it as well.

DFW-PHX/LAS are set to have it.

For international routes, there’s MIA-BSB/LIM, DFW-LIM, PHL-CMN/KEF/EDI/SNN
I believe there’s also DFW-STT and CLT/MIA/PHL-SXM/STT.

Subject to change though.

Thankfully Delta will still be operating them.

And the A321 NEO will never have the versatility of the 757.

It has over 700NM more range than a 75 while burning significantly less gas
