American Airlines will retire its remaining 26 McDonnell
Douglas MD-80 aircraft on Sept. 4.
The Super 80 aircraft, which American called "the
workhorse" of its fleet throughout the 1980s, ceased production two
decades ago. With American's retirement of the planes, Delta will be the only
U.S. carrier that still operates MD-80s.
American's final revenue flight on the aircraft will be a
Sept. 4 flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Chicago O'Hare.
