American Airlines Enhances Summer Travel

American Airlines today announced the launch of a new trans-Atlantic route
that will link Boston with Manchester in Northern England with nonstop
flights for the first time. The daily service, on board a single-class
188-seat Boeing 757 aircraft, will be inaugurated on May 15 and will
continue through Oct. 31.

“We`re delighted to strengthen what is already a very robust summer
schedule from Boston,” said Tom Gleason, vice president-Eastern Division
Passenger Sales. “Local customers and those connecting through Boston—
whether from the West Coast or from the Northeast on one of our regional
flights—will have a choice of nonstop flights to destinations in the
Caribbean, Mexico and Europe, in addition to the hundreds of domestic
flights available from Boston. And the new approach we`re using to
inaugurate service to Manchester will allow us to satisfy strong leisure
demand while developing the route for potential service with our larger
two—or even three-class wide-body aircraft.”

American offers 132 daily flights from Boston to destinations around the
world. American Airlines customers enjoy spacious First- and Coach-Class
cabins and an extensive route network, with great low fares, the
opportunity to earn and redeem AAdvantage(R) frequent flier miles, and
exceptional service both on the ground and in the air, all of which
combine to make travel on American an exceptional value.

American Airlines is the world`s largest carrier. American, American Eagle
and the AmericanConnection regional carriers serve more than 250 cities in
over 40 countries with more than 3,900 daily flights. The combined network
fleet numbers more than 1,000 aircraft. American`s award-winning Web site,, provides users with easy access to check and book fares, plus
