This week American Airlines celebrated 30 years of flying from London to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Texas. The first flight took place five days after the US government had approved non-stop Boeing 747 services from DFW to London.
Now, in 2012 – through American’s partnership with British Airways – the company offers 70 daily flights between North America and the UK (Manchester and Heathrow).
Coinciding with the anniversary, there is a brand-new American check-in area at Heathrow Terminal 3 Zone F. In addition, American passengers will be able to use all of the self-check-in machines in zones F and G. Premium customers will continue to use the flagship check-in located in front of the terminal.
The airline has also announced that it is opening bookings on its brand new Boeing 777-300ER operation between the two points, due to commence 31 January 2013. The interiors will feature mood lighting, Main Cabin Extra and fully lie-flat seats with all aisle-access in First and Business Class. American is the first US airline to order and take delivery of the Boeing 777-300ER. www.aa.com
