The new service will be flown on AA’s Boeing 777-200, featuring 37 lie-flat Flagship® Business seats, 24 Premium Economy seats, and 66 extra legroom Main Cabin Extra seats.
Moreover, there is high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the aircraft, with seatback entertainment and ports to charge personal devices at every seat.
“There is tremendous demand for travel between India and the US, thanks to the large diaspora and growing business ties. The pandemic has led to a preference among people to travel nonstop instead of going one-stop,” Said American’s MD (sales) Tom Lattig.
“There is huge potential for expansion in India. Mumbai is one place we are looking at closely. We will see how these two routes that we have announced do and then decide.”
“Our India flights will have a feel of the country in terms of meals, inflight entertainment content, and Hindi-speaking crew,” he further added.
