American Airlines debuts five Dallas/Fort Worth domestic delights

American Airlines Dallas/Fort Worth to Gainesville 

American Airlines Gainesville

Gainesville Airport baked this very elaborate cake to celebrate American Airlines’ inaugural flight from Dallas/Fort Worth. Along with promoting the connection and the global links that it brings, the cake is also adorned by the airport’s mascot and yellow lab sniffer dog, Beamer, named for Todd Beamer from United Airlines flight 93 on 9/11 with his widow Lisa’s permission. Her vest says “Let’s Roll” and she is alert to 17 different explosives according to the airport.

American Airlines Harlingen

American Airlines launched services from Dallas/Fort Worth to Harlingen on 3 March, an inter-state service which will operate three times daily. Among those pictured at the launch ceremony which took place at Harlingen Airport were: Victor Leal, Commissioner, District 5, City of Harlingen (left); Michael Mezmar, Commissioner, District 3, City of Harlingen (second left); Chris Boswell, Mayor, City of Harlingen (third left); Dale Morris, Senior Consultant/Government Affairs, American Airlines (centre); Marv Esterly, Director of Aviation, Harlingen Airport (third right) and Tudor Uhlhorn, Commissioner, District 2, City of Harlingen (right).
