Beginning on June 4, 2015, these large 76-seat regional jets will offer customers a more seamless transition between American and American Eagle service, including first-class seating, inflight Wi-Fi and more overhead bin space to accommodate larger carry-on bags.
The E175 aircraft features a two-class configuration with 12 First Class seats; 20 seats in Main Cabin Extra, offering up to six inches of more leg room; and 44 seats in the Main Cabin. The E175 features Wi-Fi for customers who want to stay connected on their personal devices during flight. Additional modern amenities include leather seating and in-seat power in all cabins. American has firm orders for 60 E175s with options for 90 more and expects 20 of these new E175s to eventually be based out of LAX as new deliveries continue.
American's network, services and airport amenities have made it the preferred airline of the entertainment industry and the premiere airline at LAX. With nearly 200 daily departures from LAX, American customers have access to the most nonstop destinations, including new service to Mexico City, Belize City and Guadalajara. American offers the only VIP lobby with Flagship Check-In, guaranteed meet and greet with Five Star service and help with tight connections for its most elite customers with luxury Cadillac ramp transfers.
American has served greater Los Angeles for more than 80 years and continues to strengthen its ties to the entertainment industry by sponsoring the American Film Institute, the LA Film Festival, the Film Independent Spirit Awards, the LA Chapter of British Academy of Film and TV Arts, Universal Music Group's Grammy Showcase and the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.
American also is investing more than $2 billion in the customer experience, which includes a redesign of the LAX Admirals Club lounge. These investments also include adding more fully lie-flat seats on aircraft; upgraded aircraft interiors; more international Wi-Fi; more in-flight entertainment options and charging power for customers in all cabins; and an improved airport experience with faster, more reliable kiosks and refreshed gate and ticketing areas.
