American Airlines, Inc. Key Developments

American Airlines to Launch New Service from Dallas and Fort Worth to Beijing

American Airlines has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation for the right to operate new service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport beginning next summer. Once approved, the new route will be the first nonstop flight connecting Beijing and Dallas/Fort Worth. The new service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Beijing will be operated with a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. American is retrofitting its entire fleet of 777-200ERs to include fully lie-flat Business Class seats, all with aisle access; new seats in the Main Cabin; in-seat entertainment; and international Wi-Fi capability. The new fully lie-flat Business Class seats on American's 777-200ERs offer customers the space of any 777 Business Class seat offered by any U.S. carrier. The new flight from DFW will also complement American's existing service from Chicago to Beijing and will be American's 11th route between the U.S. and Asia. Since 2013, American has added new nonstop flights connecting Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai to DFW, reinforcing the airline's commitment to expanding and strengthening its presence in the Asia-Pacific region. This route will be operated as part of American's joint business agreement with fellow oneworld alliance member Japan Airlines. Through one world member airlines and their affiliates, American's customers have access to nearly 150 destinations within Asia.
