    American Airlines Nexos Magazine Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary With Free Concert in Miami Featuring Fanny Lu

    FORT WORTH, Texas, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines Nexos magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary "Gems of Latin America" April 1 edition at Bongos Cuban Cafe in the heart of Miami. The 10th anniversary celebration and free concert features Colombian artist Fanny Lu, who will also grace the cover of the magazine, available onboard flights to and from Latin America and select domestic transcontinental flights.

    "This issue gives us an opportunity to celebrate the relationship that American Airlines has cultivated and sustained with its Spanish-speaking passengers through the pages of Nexos," said Ana Cristina Reymundo, editor of Nexos. "Several departments across American's system are collaborating and contributing to the success of this issue and to tonight's 10th Anniversary Celebration Concert."

    Fanny Lu will appear on the cover and in the issue bedecked in jewels - a symbol of the many gems Latin America has to offer. Nexos' cover story features 10 splendid and little-known destinations that are gems throughout the continent, including: Ushuaia, Argentina; Bahia, Brazil; the islands of San Andres, Tobago; the country of Belize along the Caribbean route; Easter Island, Chile; Popayan, Colombia; Margarita Island, Venezuela; Taxco, Mexico; Iguazu, Paraguay; Lake Titicaca, straddling Bolivia and Peru; and, in a tribute to the old country, a feature on Valencia, Spain.

    "Fanny has been great to work with and it has been a pleasure to watch her considerable talent take her to stardom," said Juan Rios-manager American Specialty Sales. "American has played an important role in making that happen and it has shaped our vision for supporting future up-and-coming Latin artists."

    Nexos, which has featured some of the hottest Latin American artists in the entertainment industry, also highlights everything from the best travel destinations - including shopping, dining, spas and resorts - to fitness and the latest in technology and workplace innovations.
