The crew on the inaugural Los Angeles to Tampa service operated by American Airlines were welcomed in the Floridian airport by this fabulous three-tiered, Hollywood-inspired masterpiece.
- American Airlines continued to expand domestically with the addition of three new connections on 6 November. The biggest airline in the world, following the merger with US Airways last December, added 12 weekly flights from Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (DFW) to Meridian Key, MS (MEI), utilising ExpressJet Airlines’ 50-seat CRJ 200s. Moreover, these flights continued on the 111-kilometre sector from Meridian Key, MS (MEI) to Laurel, MS (PIB). Besides this, the oneworld member also introduced daily flights on the 3,473-kilometre airport pair from Los Angeles, CA (LAX) to Tampa, FL (TPA), a route served by the airline’s 150-seat 737-800s. American will face direct competition only on the route to Tampa from Delta Air Lines’ 10 weekly services.
