American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) today launches daily nonstop service between its Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) hub and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG)
The new daily service between DFW and Hong Kong will be operated with a Boeing 777-300 ER, marking the first time American will deploy its flagship aircraft to Asia. The aircraft features a three-class cabin configuration with fully lie-flat seats in First and Business Class, international Wi-Fi, and more customer and cargo capacity than any other aircraft currently in American’s fleet.
The new service between DFW and Shanghai will be operated with a Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft. American will be retrofitting its entire fleet of 777-200 ERs to include fully lie-flat Business Class seats, each 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 777-200 ERs will afford travelers among the largest living space of any 777 Business Class seat offered by any U.S. carrier.
