American Offers Extra Services All Round

FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines customers in more than 50 cities will see additional nonstop flights starting tomorrow, as the airline adjusts its schedules to reflect increased demand for flying.

“We’ve been encouraged by summer bookings, which reflect some pent-up demand for air travel after the Iraqi war,” said Henry Joyner, senior vice president-Planning. “Most of our new flying is additional service in markets we already serve; the rest is new, seasonal flying to vacation spots in the U.S. and Caribbean.”

American makes it easier to plan travel through its Web site,, where customers can check schedules and fares, book flights, cars and hotel rooms, check out destination city information and print out boarding passes.
American also offers more than 700 Self-Serve Check-In Devices at 87 airports, with Curbside Check-In available at more than 80 cities.
