AIRLINE REVIEW

AMERICAN AIRLINES.

Great Southern Rail Tourism   By House of Travel


American Airlines is one of the world’s oldest airlines, has nearly 1,000 planes (the largest fleet in the world), and generates more income that any other airline in the world. Considered a ‘legacy airline’, her distinct shiny metal aircraft are an icon in the USA, and around the world. The airline is currently enjoying a strong period of expansion with new planes and new destinations like New Zealand.

 

The Difference

  • American Airlines flies to New Zealand in the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
  • The multi award winning AAdvantage frequent flyer program has over 100 million members.
  • American has the world’s largest fleet, made up of nearly 1,000 Airbus, Boeing, Embraer and McDonnell Douglas aircraft. This includes over 260 Boeing 737’s and 170 Airbus A321’s. In addition to this, American has another 350 aircraft on order!
  • American Airlines flies to over 80 destinations in the US, and a further 80 destinations in 50 other countries around the world.
  • On any given day, American operates over 6,700 flights carrying a whopping 530,000 people!

 

The Classes

PREMIUM ECONOMY American are launching their first Premium Economy service on their new 787 aircraft so details aren't yet final, but benefits will include more legroom, wider seats, noise reducing headphones, priority check in and boarding, two checked bags and amenity kits.
BUSINESS CLASS In Business Class you’ll receive a larger seat that turns into an almost two metre fully lie flat bed, direct aisle access, complimentary WiFi, noise cancelling Bose airphones, access to a self service bar with drinks and snacks, amenity kits with skincare products and a 16 inch touchscreen entertainment system.

 

Destinations

San Francisco and all major cities in North America, as well as dozens of regional centres. Also many flights to Asia (particularly Japan and China) and a couple of flights to Europe.

 

The Hub

LOS ANGELES AIRPORT. LAX is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. It has a whopping nine terminals, processes over 70 million passengers a year, and receives flights from over 150 different destinations around the world. Simply closing a terminal or runway would not be possible without causing mass flight delays and cancellations. So although renovations have been slow, good things come to those who wait - LAX is now up there with all the major (and much loved) airports.
