Customers may begin booking flights for these new routes in mid-November once governmental approvals have been obtained.

In August, American announced plans to provide customers a more seamless experience with its Airbus 319 fleet. A319s will be retrofitted with AC power ports at every seat and new overhead bins with increased storage for carryon bags. When complete, all A319s will be configured with 128 seats with 8 First Class seats and 18 Main Cabin Extra seats.
American is in the midst of more than $2 billion in planned improvements to give customers a superior travel experience around the world. These capital investments include fully lie-flat seats; international Wi-Fi; more in-flight entertainment options and power outlets; a new, modern design for Admirals Club lounges worldwide; and an upgraded assortment of complimentary healthy food, cocktails and more.

American is taking delivery of more than 100 new aircraft this year, giving it the youngest fleet of any U.S.-based network carrier. Orders include the Airbus A320 and A320neo family, A350-900s, Boeing 737 MAX, 777-300ERs and 787s, which will make American’s fleet even younger, more modern and fuel efficient.
