On Aug. 10, American received its first Boeing 787-8 aircraft this year and its first since April 2021. The aircraft, with U.S. Registration No. N880BJ, was delivered from Charleston, South Carolina, and is expected to enter commercial service in the coming weeks. Including this delivery, American currently has 47 active 787 family aircraft in its fleet with an additional 42 on order. We appreciate the work done by the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing during the review process.
