    We know it is important to stay productive when flying and American Airlines is working to bring you more powerports across our entire fleet. Below is a quick update on the status of powerport availability by fleet type.

    Fleet Type​
    Fully Operational​
    Boeing 777 Yes
    Boeing 767-200 Expected May 2011
    Boeing 767-300 Business Yes
    Boeing 767-300 Economy Expected by year-end
    Boeing 757 Expected by year-end
    Boeing 737 Yes
    MD80 Yes

    In addition, as part of our upgrade plan to our Boeing 737 and 757 interiors, our entire fleet of 737 and 757 powerports will be gradually converted to AC power which means a special DC power adapter will no longer be required. This upgrade plan also includes the installation of new seats, new cabin interiors and updated inflight entertainment systems throughout the aircraft. American Airlines recently reconfigured 18 of our existing 124 Boeing 757s, which operate on international routes and we're currently upgrading our remaining fleet for continued use on domestic routes.
    We'll continue to provide updates as American brings you more comfort and productivity throughout your travels.

    This is quite smart of AA HQ to put out! Hopeful that the schedule is met for the 762 given all the transcon flights I have to book this summer. Thanks for the heads up!!
