Introduction to American Airlines
In terms of the size of its fleet, passenger miles flown and revenues earned, American Airlines is the world's largest airline, running almost 7,000 flights every day. The firm was founded in 1930, but its golden age of international expansion began in the early 1970s. Soon, the unpainted gleaming metal fuselages of AA planes became a common site from London to Hong Kong. The core of American's business remains in the USA, with hubs in major destinations like Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago and New York, so if you want to book a trip to America, no airline offers more comprehensive coverage. The company operates direct flights from the UK to plenty of attractive destinations, including Philadelphia, Raleigh, New York JFK, San Francisco and Phoenix. Recently, AA also joined the OneWorld alliance, a group of airlines that coordinate their routes and ticketing which includes British Airways, Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific.

American Airlines Travel classes
Taking AA flights is generally a painless process, and the company is known for the quality of its onboard service. Long haul services don't have a First Class cabin. Instead, the forward cabin is dedicated to Business Class, where you'll find individual compartments with 15-inch touchscreens, lie-flat seats and menus offering premium beverage and meal selections.
