"As the largest passenger airline in the world, serving 250 cities in over 40 countries with more than 4,000 daily flights around the globe, we commend American Airlines for taking a leadership position in the industry to help us build new bridges of respect and understanding for America with the world."

    "Our business is built on customer service and strategic global relationships, and with over 98 million passengers flying on American last year, we operate as a major global gateway for the United States, transporting thousands of international visitors to and from America each and every day," said Frizzell. "I look forward to working with Business for Diplomatic Action to find additional ways American can engage in actions to improve America's standing in the world."
