Why Fly With American Airlines

  • While American Airlines does offer plenty of international travel service – by itself and through its affiliation with the oneworld alliance – it is a gem of an airline for easy, comfortable domestic travel from city to city throughout the United States.
  • The cabin refurbishment gives passengers in the Main Cabin six inches of additional legroom for added comfort, and First and Business Class travelers have fully lie-flat seats and aisle on the Boeing 777 planes. Premium class fliers on international flights also receive turn-down service (with complimentary duvets, pajamas, and slippers) and an amenity kit stocked with skincare products to ensure travelers arrive at their destination feeling fresh and relaxed! Passengers in all cabins can expect a lovely, four-course meal (appetizer, soup/salad, entrée, and dessert) on international flights.
  • American Airlines is in the process of upgrading its fleet, adding hundreds of new planes and refreshing existing aircraft for added comfort and enhanced services. For long-distance and trans-continental routes, American Airlines relies on its Boeing 777 and Boeing 767 planes. Flights within the US and short-distance routes between countries are also serviced by American Airlines Airbus planes.
  • American Airlines offers travelers a variety of the latest entertainment options, including up to 250 movies, 200 TV shows, 350 audio and music selections, 16 radio channels, and many games. First and Business Class passengers on select long-haul flights are offered a Samsung Galaxy Tab with a 10.1 inch screen for their inflight entertainment pleasure.
  • Every First and Business Class seat is equipped with a power outlet, many of the main cabin seats are also within reach of a power outlet, and the newest aircrafts are also being equipped with USB ports. Wi-Fi is available on many planes, though daily or monthly access passes must be purchased in order to use it.
  • Travelers who bring their own Wi-Fi-enabled devices can purchase and stream movies and TV shows straight to their devices. If the plane lands before your movie finishes – no problem! You have 24 hours post-landing to finish watching whatever you streamed to your device! Devices currently enabled for streaming service include laptops, iPads, Galaxy Tabs, and Motorola Xoom.
