Dallas/Fort Worth, London Heathrow, New York JFK and Sao Paulo Will Be First Airports to See New Aircraft

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines today announced the flight numbers and markets for its first group of Boeing 777-300ERs that will enter the airline's fleet starting this December. On Dec. 13, the Dallas/Fort Worth – Sao Paulo route will be the first to feature the newest addition to American's fleet. In February, the aircraft will fly to London Heathrow from both Dallas/Fort Worth and New York JFK. 

American is the first U.S. airline to order and take delivery of the Boeing 777-300ER. The 777-300ERs will complement American's fleet by offering additional network flexibility in the future, as well as providing increased efficiency due to better seat mile economics and performance characteristics.

Below is a schedule for initial routes that will feature the 777-300ER. These schedules will appear in global distribution systems this week.

"American is proud to be among the first in the industry to offer a combination of fully lie-flat seats with all-aisle access, international Wi-Fi, and top-of-the-line in-seat entertainment," said Virasb Vahidi, American's Chief Commercial Officer. "On Dec. 13, our customers can experience these firsts on flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Sao Paulo."

As part of its international widebody strategy, American anticipates taking delivery of 10 Boeing 777-300ERs beginning in December 2012. The 777-300ERs will be configured as three-class aircraft and will include fully lie-flat First and Business Class seats, Main Cabin Extra, and Wi-Fi capability to keep customers connected while traveling internationally.

The three-class cabin configuration in the new 777-300ER will provide American with more customers and cargo capacity than any other aircraft in its fleet today. Customers will be welcomed into the aircraft by unique mood lighting. American will be the first airline to use a dramatic archway and ceiling treatment on the 777-300 to create a feeling of spaciousness. A walk-up bar in the premium cabin stocked with snacks and refreshments will be a first for any U.S. airline and adds another unique element of luxury to the 777-300. Entertainment options include up to 120 movies, more than 150 TV programs and more than 350 audio selections that will be offered throughout the aircraft. Also, every seat will feature individual 110-volt AC power outlets and USB jacks for charging personal electronic devices. For more information, visit www.AA.com/Fly777.
