It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
Resting at the gate at Chicago O’Hare Terminal 3 is an American Airlines Boeing 777-200ER, as it is prepared for a long haul journey from its base at the windy city to distant climbs.
American Airlines operates a fleet of 47 Boeing 777-200ER in its long haul fleet. These aircraft support the airlines long-haul operation, made up of Airbus A330-200, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 in its long haul fleet (note the A330-300, Boeing 757-200 and Boeing 767-300ER aircraft were withdrawn due to the pandemic)
This frame – N793AN join the American Airlines fleet in September 2000 and has remained in the fleet since then.
The aircraft flies in a three-class configuration (with Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class seating).
Like a lot of the American Airlines fleet, the aircraft has been parked since March 2020.
