How to track the final Super80 Send Off

Share this article

The Super80 Send Off to end all Super80 send offs, truly. On Wednesday, 4 September American Airlines will operate the final mass-retirement of its MD-80 fleet. The airline will operate its final MD-80 revenue flight and 23 MD-83 aircraft will make their way to Roswell, New Mexico throughout the day.

Tune in on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram as we join one of the final flights to Roswell. We’ll be using the hashtag #Super80SendOff for posts. Super80 is the name American Airlines gave their MD-80 fleet.

If you’d like to follow along, we’ve put together a guide to the final revenue flights and the retirement flights below. Follow all American Airlines MD-80 flights and use the tables to search for specific flights by flight number, route, or timing. We’ll be adding registration information for each flight as that becomes available.
