Another benefit of all those new Boeing 777-300s that American has been adding to their fleet is that it frees up some 777-200s that can be redeployed on other routes, including a few domestic ones.
American updated their schedules over the weekend and a few new 777-200 domestic flights were added. Even DFW is getting a little widebody love!
American is adding one more 777-200 flight each way between Miami and Los Angeles LAX. This is in addition to the two existing 777-200 flights they already offer every day from each airport to the other.
Starting December 2, 2013 American will offer a total of three 777-200 flights from MIA to LAX and three from LAX to MIA. Two 772 flights from each city will offer 3 cabin service, and one will feature 2 cabin service with the business class seats being sold as economy and reserved for AAdvantage Elites and full fare passengers.
Here’s a look at the new flights.

The news that most excites me is that American is adding 777-200 service between my home airport, DFW, and LAX!
Here are the new DFW/LAX flights.

The new 772 flights begin November 20, 2013 and it’s being sold as a two cabin flight. I’m willing to predict now that AA2423 will become the toughest upgrade out of DFW!
Speaking of domestic 777 flights….have you been following Mike Reed’s posts on his Getting Status blog about his recent trip on board the special, one time 777-300 flight that was offered from San Diego to New York JFK?
Looks like he and a few other AA geeks had their own version of a mini oneworld MegaDo! Follow his posts at Experiencing the 777-300ER, SAN-JFK.
