American Adds Heathrow Service

Second daily flight from LAX

American Airlines will add a second daily nonstop flight from Los Angeles to London’s Heathrow Airport for the spring through fall travel season one of several schedule additions the airline is making in Los Angeles, including new nonstop service to Tokyo Narita Airport. American’s additional flight to London Heathrow will begin on April 4 and operate through Oct. 30. The airline will use Boeing 777 aircraft on the routes featuring American’s Flagship Suite with 16 fully reclining leather seats in first class, 35 seats in business class and 194 seats in the main cabin arranged in American’s exclusive “More Room Throughout Coach” seating configuration. All three classes will offer American’s International Flagship Service, providing a high level of in-flight comfort and service to passengers.

American will also begin flying between Los Angeles and Tokyo’s Narita Airport on April 4 with one daily nonstop flight in each direction. The Tokyo route to be operated year-round is new service for American and will be flown with Boeing 777 aircraft. It, too, will feature “More Room Throughout Coach,” as well as International Flagship Service in all three cabins.

Service to several popular spots on the North American continent will also increase from Los Angeles, effective June 10, just in time for the busy summer travel season.

“The additional flight to London, the new flight to Tokyo, and more flights to other popular destinations underscore our commitment to providing customers what they value in this case, convenient service to lots of places,” said Art Pappas, American’s managing director in Los Angeles.
