Eagle Flies Four Daily Nonstops with Two-Class Service, Connects to New Shanghai Flight
FORT WORTH, Texas, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, today upgraded its four daily round-trip flights between Denver International and Los Angeles International Airport. The new service will be operated with 63-seat Bombardier CRJ-700 jets, featuring a two-class cabin.
"We're delighted to launch our upgraded service from Denver to American's cornerstone hub in Los Angeles," said Gary Foss, Vice President Planning and Marketing for American's regional network. "With our four daily nonstop flights using two-class Bombardier jets, customers from Denver will have more comfort than ever before as they travel to American's Los Angeles cornerstone hub which offers convenient connections throughout the oneworld® global network."
One example of those connections is American's new nonstop service from Los Angeles to Shanghai, which also begins April 5. The upgraded Eagle service to and from Denver is now timed for convenient Shanghai connections. The Los Angeles flights also complement existing American Airlines and American Eagle service to American's cornerstone hubs in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, JFK in New York and Miami. All this is part of a major expansion of the Los Angeles cornerstone hub that will see more than 30 flights added today to 15 communities for a total of over 150 daily flights.
