    <p>American Airlines has ordered 15 Boeing 767-300ERs for delivery between 2002 and 2003, under plans to standardise its combined fleet after the TWA take-over, and simplify its transatlantic fleet to two types. At the same time, the airframer has received a further boost with the entry into service of the first winglet-equipped 737-800s. </p> <p>The General Electric CF6-80C2-powered 767-300ERs will replace TWA's nine Pratt &amp; Whitney-powered 767s, along with American's Airbus A300-600Rs on North Atlantic routes, enabling the carrier to standardise on the 767 and 777. </p> <p>The A300-600Rs will be deployed on Caribbean and Latin American services. This, in turn, is expected to free 737-800s and 757-200s used on these routes, allowing American to "ultimately reduce the need to purchase additional narrowbody aircraft". </p> <p>Meanwhile, the first 737-800s fitted with Aviation Partners Boeing-developed blended winglets entered service on 8 May with German carriers Hapag Lloyd andhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/American-Airlines-builds-up-fleet-of-standardised-767s-130018/
