If you are a fan of flying a widebody aircraft on a domestic route, then you are in luck. Per AirlineRoute, American Airlines is replacing one of four daily flights from Miami to Las Vegas with a Boeing 767-300ER. Flights are currently flown with a mix of Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A321 aircraft.
The flights are bookable immediately and will be operating daily, between March 3rd and June 1st.
AA1409 MIA0710 – 0947LAS 763
AA1279 LAS1125 – 1859MIA 763
American operates two cabin configurations on their 767 fleet. The first, which is pictured below, offers a 2-2-2 layout in the Business class cabin and a 2-3-2 layout in the main cabin. This version also offers three rows of Main Cabin Extra, which has a nice increase in pitch over the rest of the main cabin. If you read InsideFlyer, I would hope you know how to avoid sitting in economy 😉
This version of the 767 does not offer any seat back entertainment, instead relying on overhead monitors throughout the aircraft. Passengers sitting in Business class are usually offered a Samsung tablet, though it is unclear if American will be providing tablets on this route.
On the reconfigured 767, the Business class cabin has been replaced with 28 180º lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. AC power is available in business and Main Cabin Extra. With the reconfiguration, Main Cabin extra was reduced to just two rows and the plane still relies on a combination of overhead monitors and personal tablets in the Business class cabin.
There is a small likelihood that American will swap out the 767 for an aircraft with lie-flat seats, though any notice of that wouldn’t be seen until the day of departure. Nevertheless, this is a great addition, even temporarily, for a flight that is over five hours when traveling westbound! The pricing is also surprisingly nice. The fare below is for March 3rd!
American operates widebody aircraft on a number of domestic routes, such as LAX-MIA, DFW-ORD, PHL-MCO and more!
