Evolving With New, Modern Planes
Upgrading Your Flight Experience In Every Cabin
New Planes and Modern Comfort – Wherever You Fly
Experience the future of travel as we upgrade our fleet with hundreds of new planes and refresh our existing aircraft to bring you a more modern, comfortable and connected experience. We're taking delivery of an average of one new plane a week, so book a flight now on our Boeing 777-300ER or Airbus 319 to see how we're changing the way you fly.
The Latest in Personal Entertainment at Every Seat
Watch what you want when you want on our new planes with the latest in personal, in-seat entertainment, choosing from a vast selection of movies, TV programs, audio selections and games. If you prefer to venture online, stay connected with Wi-Fi, available on most flights within the continental U.S. and on select international flights. All of these features, including individual 110v universal AC power outlets and USB jacks, will be available at every seat and every cabin on our new planes,* which are designed to keep you comfortable and entertained while you fly.
Where Are You Going?
Touring North America
Our fleet is being updated with cutting-edge aviation technology and design. Since May 2011, we've been adding up to three Boeing Next Generation 737-800 planes to our fleet each month, which feature Boeing Sky Interior — a contemporary atmosphere and enhanced lighting. Beginning in 2018, we also plan to add 100 new Boeing 737-800 MAX planes, which will offer a fresh, modern inflight experience as well as more environmentally friendly engines. Additionally, we will take delivery of the first of 130 Airbus 319 and Airbus 321 aircraft beginning in July of 2013, with continued deliveries through 2017. Want to travel on the A319? The plane is expected to begin flying in September, so look for "319" listed as the aircraft type for your selected flight to be one of the first to fly on these new planes.
As we welcome new planes to the American Airlines fleet we will retire aging members of our fleet – meaning that no matter where in North America you travel, you will experience more comfort and style in every cabin.
Traveling Coast to Coast
When you travel between New York's JFK and San Francisco International Airport, and between JFK and Los Angeles International Airport, you'll appreciate that American plans to be the only carrier to offer you a three-class cabin, plus fully lie-flat First and Business Class seats including all-aisle access from every First Class seat on our Airbus A321 Transcontinental aircraft. These planes will also offer the option of four to six more inches of legroom with Main Cabin Extra seating.
Exploring the Globe
We're also updating our international fleet with new and refreshed planes to keep you comfortable on flights around the world. Be among the first to enjoy a world-class travel experience on our new Boeing 777-300ERs, featuring fully lie-flat First and Business Class seats with all-aisle access. From new cabin interiors to Wi-Fi, the new aircraft offers you a unique, state-of-the-art travel experience. You'll enjoy more dining options, a wine sampling for First Class travelers and upgraded amenity kits in Business and First Class. Our 777-300ER is now flying, and you can make sure you're on it by making sure that "77W" is listed as the aircraft when booking your next flight. We'll also begin taking delivery of over 40 Boeing 787 Dreamliners for international travel in the near future.
