JFK-MAD from 757 to 763 some days in March

It seems there is an equipment change on JFK-MAD for most of March, 3 days per week: Mon, Wed and Sat from 757 to 763.
C inventory is showing available for many of those 763 flights.
Not sure why, as from April it reverts to all 757. Maybe there is a shortage of 75Ls, perhaps for maintenance?

This is an early example of Parker and Kirby's philosophy of flying the "right size" plane every day, even if that means the plane type changes every day instead of seasonally (as old AA did it).

A friend and I were booked on one of those JFK-MAD flights with paid seats in MCE. When they changed equipment, they bumped us back to MC and I had to call and get it all sorted out again.

BTW, somewhat off topic, but what good is the "change notification" button on the itinerary page of AA.com if none of the notification options are "notify me if the flight changes"? I just happened to look at it last week and noticed we'd lost the seats we paid for.
