American Launching Orange County/JFK

FORT WORTH, Texas - On April 6, American Airlines begins offering the only nonstop service from Orange County, Calif., to New York’s JFK Airport. Flights will operate three times a day Sunday through Friday and twice a day on Saturdays.

“Passengers can look to American Airlines to provide the most options for traveling nonstop between New York and the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area,” said Dan Garton, executive vice president-Marketing. “We have daily nonstops between JFK and Los Angeles International, Long Beach Airport, and now John Wayne Airport in Orange County. And every flight features all the great amenities American is known for - AAdvantage miles, Web check in on, extra legroom, connecting flights to or from international destinations - all at low fares.”

American also offers daily nonstop service between Newark and Los Angeles International.
The new flights do not reflect growth for American, but rather a reallocation of existing resources to routes with more promising revenue potential.

Orange County, known “for the fun of it,” is home to beautiful beaches and world-famous theme parks. New York, the “Big Apple,” offers great cuisine, renowned theater and hundreds of unique neighborhoods to explore.

American will operate the new service using Boeing 757 aircraft, featuring seating for 22 First Class and 154 More Room Throughout Coach passengers.
