What routes does American Airlines 737 MAX 8 fly?

I’ve never seen a MAX 8 at LAX. Well that’s a lie… we have United, Southwest and Alaska. But i’ve never seen an american airlines MAX 8.

Anyone know what routes they fly and why they don’t ever send their max 8 to LAX?

Most of them appear to be based out in Miami. There are 29 of them in the air at the moment or have their transponder on

I’ve flown on the American MAX 8 from DCA to Miami. Think a lot of them are over there.

LAX-LAS
LAS-DCA
DCA-MIA
MIA-JFK
JFK-ORD
ORD-DFW
DFW-MIA
MIA-ORD
ORD-LAX
LAX-DFW


these are among the most common B38M routes

I’ve flown their Max 8 between SAT-MIA twice.

From what I’ve seen, the Max 8 is based out of MIA which is why you won’t see it in LAX a lot. American mainly uses the A21N between MIA and LAX.

They are mostly based in Miami flying to Caribbean and Latin destinations. Dallas, jfk and ord get a couple. The farthest north non hub airport I have seen one at is Kcle.

Here is everywhere American Airlines flies a Boeing 737-8 between now and October 2024. NOTE: This shows every route with a Boeing 737-8 shown on their booking system, services could be multiple times a day to once randomly in a week. Some routes will have their MAX 8 service end between now and then too. :)



Apologies for the somewhat blurry photo!

For what it’s worth, American does fly the MAX 8 to LAX from MIA, typically once or twice a day until Feburary 14, where the route not have a MAX 8 service thereafter. :)

So you have until Feburary 14 to spot one!
