    I'm taking the early MIA-GYE flight on AA (which used to be a 757 and is now a 738). Is the service just basic domestic FC? This is on a paid business ticket. Is it worth the time lost to take the later flight on a 763?

    Yes, the 738 would offer basic domestic FC service...perhaps an enhanced meal.

    It looks like the 763 leaves only about two hours later. On a 4 hour flight, I personally wouldn't hesitate to give up those two hours at my destination to take a 763 over a 738 up front.

    Looks like 3 hours to me but I do agree, it's not like one is leaves in the AM and one leaves in the late PM. If you have no reason to be in GYE earlier (business meeting, etc) the 763 is definitely a much better flying experience up front.

    Thanks, I'm leaning that way myself as it allows me to route back to the original CLT-DFW-MIA-GYE which eeks out a few extra miles/points
