In just over a year, the Convairs had replaced the DC-3 on the shorter segments, and the timetable dated April 24, shows the schedule operated entirely by the DC-6 and Convairs.
In , American was once again the first to introduce a new type with the introduction of DC-7 service in November, The DC-7 enabled American to offer the first nonstop transcontinental service in both directions. TWA began eastbound-only nonstop service a few months earlier.
The January 23, timetable shows the Lockheed Electra operating between New York and Chicago, with service to Detroit following shortly thereafter. In the summer of , the Boeing entered service with American. For all the advantages the early jets offered by cutting flying times, they were actually somewhat underpowered. A step toward remedying this situation came in the form of the turbofan engine, which had greater thrust and did not require water injection which was utilized by the early turbojets.
Although the was intended to be a fast aircraft capable of transcontinental operations, the promised performance was never achieved, and as the April 29, timetable illustrates, they were utilized on shorter routes. The only remained in the American fleet for about 6 years. The new trijet went into service in April of between Chicago and New York. However, one of those flights continued to Dallas, and is shown in the columnar section of the timetable where the jet types were specified individually.
Although there are no promotions for the in this timetable, the October 5, timetable does have a full page ad for the , which was fulfilling a new schedule of 5 roundtrips between Cleveland and New York. Continuing the trend towards smaller jets, American also purchased the British Aircraft Corporation One-Eleven to serve on short hauls. The was placed into service on March 6, between New York and Toronto. Although largely used for high-frequency services from New York, the twinjets would eventually operate as far afield as Dallas.
The Trans-Pacific route case was a political football that had been kicked through 4 presidential administrations, with recommendations being made only to be later overturned. The case finally concluded in , which resulted in American receiving route authority to Hawaii with continuing service to the South Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand.
The August 1, timetable contains a special supplement highlighting the new service. The March 2, timetable touts the new service with several promotional mentions. The following March, American completed the acquisition of Trans Caribbean Airways, gaining routes to 6 Caribbean destinations.
The March 2, shows some of those flights still being operated with DC-8 aircraft formerly operated by Trans Caribbean. Despite being the first carrier to place the DC into service on the Los Angeles — Chicago run in August, the July 6, timetable contains no acknowledgement of the new aircraft. It does have a very nice color centerfold promotion for the , though! The September 13, does feature the DC on the cover.
Late saw the airline industry reacting to the shock of the Arab Oil Embargo, which reduced the availability of jet fuel, eventually resulting in carriers operating with reduced fuel allocations.
Airlines quickly grounded many of their gas-guzzlers, which were generally either older first-generation jets or s, in favor of smaller types. The October 28, timetable, which was printed before the Embargo was announced, features a DC on the cover, and 12 daily departures from Chicago. In this issue, there were no longer any services being offered to Chicago.
The Airline Deregulation Act was passed in , allowing airlines much more freedom to set fares and enter new markets. The initial flurry of new route applications was for dormant route authority, plus each airline was allowed entry on one route of its choosing. While most airlines proudly announced new routes in their December timetables, American waited until their January 20, timetable to inaugurate the new services.
However, none of the new cities appear on the route map in this issue. The June 1, timetable shows the new service, although it only merited a one-line blurb on the route map page. Later in , American put the Boeing into service, its first new model in over a decade.
The November 1, timetable dedicates most of the back cover to promote the inaugural service, unfortunately, equipment was not being specified in order to determine which flights the was actually operating. The following summer, another new aircraft joined the fleet, this time a McDonnell Douglas offering, the MD dubbed Super 80 by American and other carriers.
These planes arrived as part of a small order on very favorable terms, in the hope that the carrier would be pleased and order more. This worked out very well for the manufacturer, as American would eventually amass a fleet of over MDs. Worth, operated by Metro Airlines.
