    Are you sure you're looking the 321 that you're looking at LAX-MIA isn't US operated? Other than some kind of unusual repositioning leg, AA A321Ts only fly LAX/SFO-JFK and those have a different/flagship/premium product (three class) compared to typical domestic F.

    The A321 that flies JFK-LAX/SFO is the A321 "T" or transcon, 3 classes of service (lie flat first 1x1, lie flat business 2x2, economy).

    There's a new A321 "B" that runs on other domestic routes, standard domestic first class.

    US doesn't fly LAX-MIA, AA took delivery of 2 class A321's and are flying them on some routes that to me make no sense...

    What about the routes makes no sense? They're putting the planes on city pairs with higher volumes of traffic to be able to connect passengers through hubs. There isn't a true premium demand on any routes in the USA other than the ex-JFK transcons so no real need to put the 321T on LAX-MIA, for example.

    Times have changed between LAX and MIA. Gone are the three cabin days. The planes have the same ID on reservations as flights to JFK; 32B. But the 32B between LAX and JFK is a 3 cabin plane. The 32B to MIA has two cabins with less seats and they are business, not first. The same seats are business to JFK but only first to MIA` Times have changed between LAX and MIA

    I wasn't talking about 321T's but the 321B's on the LAX-MIA route. I would think that AA needs bigger planes on the LAX-MIA route then 321B's.

    The 321B is the highest capacity narrow-body plane they have IIRC. And they are using the wide-bodies for international travel.
