Boeing 737 Max
On March 13th, 2019 the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all U.S.-registered Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The American fleet currently includes 24 MAX aircraft with an additional 76 aircraft on order, of which seven were scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter.
It is still undetermined when the 737 MAX aircraft will be returned to service.
737 MAX 800s - THE OASIS PROJECT
January 22, 2020
AA will begin redoing the FIRST-CLASS layouts after negative customer feedback. Based on flyer feedback, American made the decision to adjust the layout of its first-class cabins. Those adjustments include adding a tablet holder and cocktail table at each first-class seat, increasing personal storage space, and installing a more robust privacy divider between first class and the rest of the cabin.
Years ago, AA unveiled an internal initiative called the Project Oasis. The idea was to make the interior of A321 aircraft from the AA and the US Airways sides of the business the same.
AA has been in the process of re-configuring their 737-800s with these less comfortable seats resulting in the seat count increasing from 160 seats to 172 seats. Aircraft with the same number of seats make the process of swapping out aircraft, for mechanical or other reasons, much less complicated for airlines.
Re-retrofitting the A321 first class is tentatively scheduled to begin in May 2020. This process will take several years to complete, as American has to retrofit 304 737-800s and 202 A321s. That challenge is exacerbated as the carrier is without the few dozen 737 Max aircraft it was supposed to have in its fleet.
