New Flights To Begin In April Of 2011
Following this week's announcement that American Airlines was
among those being granted tentative anti-trust immunity with
Japanese partners, the legacy carrier said Thursday that the U.S.
DOT has granted it the authority and frequencies needed to begin
new service between Los Angeles and Shanghai, the largest market
for travel between the United States and China that is not
presently served by a U.S. airline.
"These new flights will enrich American's customer service
offering to China and will expand American's schedule at Los
Angeles International Airport, one of its five cornerstone cities,"
American said in a statement. "We thank DOT officials for their
expedited review of our request and we look forward to launching
these new daily flights on April 5 using 247-seat Boeing 777
aircraft, which feature 16 First Class, 37 Business Class and 194
Economy Class seats."
By any estimation, it was a good week for American. The airline
announced the launch of a new joint business with immunized
trans-Atlantic and oneworld partners British Airways and Iberia,
new service from New York Kennedy to Budapest, a second Barcelona
flight, plus new service from Chicago O'Hare to Helsinki and a
second flight between Miami and Madrid. In addition, DOT
tentatively granted trans-Pacific antitrust immunity for American
and its oneworld partner Japan Airlines.
