American Airlines, a major US airline, is revamping itself and is getting ready to streamline the travel experience for passengers post the pandemic. From Awarding scholarships to dependents of team, Investing in Hydrogen-Electric Engine Developer ZeroAvia to Redesigning its Admirals Club Lounges, it looks like the airline is leaving no stone unturned to deliver an experience.
In a recent announcement, the airline is excited to share the welcoming of its new Boeing Dreamliner!
American's first Boeing 787-8 this Year:
On Wednesday, 10 August, American received its first Boeing 787-8 aircraft this year and its first since April 2021. The aircraft was delivered from Charleston, South Carolina, and is expected to enter commercial service in the coming weeks.
American Boeing 787 Family Fleet:
With this delivery, American currently has 47 active Boeing 787 family (25 Boeing 787-8 and 22 Boeing 787-9) aircraft in service in its fleet, with an additional 42 on order for the coming years.
American has the youngest fleet among the US carriers, with an average age of 11.3 years. At the end of 2021, 55% of American’s mainline fleet was 10 years old or less. Over the same period, the airlines has retired 670 older, less fuel efficient planes through the end of 2021.
