    FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines proudly presents the "Get Mobile.

The sweepstakes, which runs through Sept. 27, will reward one lucky grand-prize winner with 280,000 AAdvantage® miles -- enough for two round-trip Economy-class tickets for travel between the U.S. and Europe, South America, Japan or China.

    • Week 3: What will you bring with you? You will always have your travel information available with American's mobile app.
    • Week 4: How do you want to get there? When you fly on American you can have your boarding pass sent directly to your mobile device.
