    American Airlines and Nokia Announce American's 'On the Move' Sweepstakes and 'Instant Win' Game

    American Airlines, AA.com and Nokia have teamed to make your next visit to the new, mobile version of AA.com even more rewarding. The American Airlines "On the Move" sweepstakes and "Instant Win" game offer multiple chances to win one of several exciting prizes, including a trip for two to Los Angeles with tickets to a red-carpet event at Nokia Theatre LA Live, Nokia N95 mobile devices, and up to 100,000 AAdvantage® miles.

    Simply go to http://www.aa.com/promo from any computer with Internet access to register for the sweepstakes and learn about the mobile version of AA.com. Then, you can play the Instant Win portion by accessing the mobile version of AA.com from any Web-enabled mobile device.

    "This promotion is a fun way to highlight the fact that our mobile version of AA.com enables travelers to access many of the helpful features on AA.com via a Web-enabled cell phone or device, without the need for a desktop or laptop computer," said Derek DeCross, American's Managing Director - Interactive Marketing. "We continue to strive to enhance the travel experience for our customers, and the mobile version of AA.com is another way we've done that."

    Both the On the Move sweepstakes and the Instant Win game run through June 16, 2008. No purchase is required for either promotion. Here are the highlights of both promotions:

    On the Move Sweepstakes

    There are two ways to enter the On the Move Sweepstakes, and a total of two entries are allowed in any combination:

    -- Receive one entry each time you register at http://www.aa.com/promo during the promotional period. 
    -- Receive one entry for visiting AA.com on your mobile phone or Web-enabled device. 
    -- Receive one entry for "referring a friend" by forwarding the sweepstakes information to others (up to three people).

    However you choose to enter, you will be eligible to win the Grand Prize, which is a trip for two to Los Angeles, including airfare and spending money, along with tickets to a red-carpet event at Nokia Theatre LA Live. One Grand Prize will be awarded.

    Additionally, 61 First Prizes of Nokia N95 mobile devices will be awarded, which is one prize for every day of the promotion.

    All winners will be selected in random drawings.                            

    "Instant Win Game"

    The Instant Win Game offers the opportunity to win simply by visiting AA.com by mobile phone.

    Each time you use a mobile device to access AA.com during the promotion period (up to once a day), you will have a chance to be an instant winner of thousands of AAdvantage miles. One winner will receive the Grand Prize of 100,000 AAdvantage miles, while eight First Prize winners each will be awarded 10,000 AAdvantage miles.

    All winners will be selected at random, so your next visit to the mobile version of AA.com could earn you enough miles to plan the dream trip of a lifetime.

    Even if you're not a sweepstakes or instant prize winner, you will enjoy the convenience of having AA.com available whenever and wherever your cell phone or Web-enabled device works. You can use the mobile version of AA.com to check schedules and book flights, view itineraries or change reservations, view fare specials, check in for a flight or check flight status, request upgrades, enroll in the AAdvantage program or view miles, access information on Admirals Club® locations, purchase a one-day pass, find information on destinations, weather or airports -- all from your Web-enabled cell phone or device.

    Accessing AA.com from a mobile phone or PDA is easy -- simply type www.aa.com into a device to be automatically directed to the mobile version of AA.com. The content is condensed and the design is simplified from the desktop or laptop version of AA.com, making for faster connections and easier navigation.
