American Airlines has installed new lie-flat seats and enhanced inflight entertainment in the Business Class cabin on Boeing 767-300s and Boeing 777 aircraft. American also announced plans for additional cabin improvements on the Boeing 767-300, including larger and more spacious overhead bins. The new lie-flat business class seats will be manufactured by Recaro, a leading specialist in aviation seating.

Enhancements to the Boeing 767-300 Business Class cabin are slated to begin in 2006.

American Airlines will begin installing the new Business Class seats on the Boeing 777 fleet beginning in 2007. Additionally, American Airlines is investing in the Boeing 777 First Class cabin by extending Flagship Suites to 20 additional aircraft, thus creating a superior product across the fleet.

"We know how important it is to our passengers to be comfortable on their international flights, whether they are working, enjoying a meal and a movie, or just relaxing," said Dan Garton, Executive Vice President of Marketing. "Our new Business Class product will provide our customers with a comfortable and highly adjustable lie-flat seat, as well as quite a bit of work space and state-of-the-art inflight entertainment, all of which will create a world- class Business Class experience.

"The new cabin enhancements on the Boeing 767-300s and the Boeing 777s will result in a consistent and highly competitive American product in the marketplace, and will deliver to American Airlines premium customers the products and services they value most," Garton said.

Garton added that, based on reviews from 777 First Class customers on the Flagship Suite product, American is making the investment to ensure passengers will have this product every time they fly on a 777.

American Airlines Boeing 767 and 777 fleets are operated on all of the transatlantic and transpacific routes, and on select routes to Latin America, as well as certain domestic routes.

American Airlines also announces plans for extending its popular First Class Flagship Suites to all 777s.
