If you aren’t aware of the news just yet – I will share with you all the latest news I read from American Airlines this morning – which is my primary and only airline of choice along with the OneWorld partners. Nothing excites me more than seeing the innovation being made by American. From new airplanes, to a finer on board experience and to new routes being launched constantly and now with both loyalty programs being combined. Which went pretty smooth for them over the weekend and I am happy for them on how they are managing things while keeping customer satisfaction high on their list.

As the title of the blog states – American Airlines is planning to use their new beautiful aircraft the 787 Dreamliner for one of their newest routes launched last year, which is Dallas Forth Worth to Shanghai Pudong. In my opinion that’s an excellent addition and fantastic news being that is a new route and also a new plane added on their fleet this is what I call a “double thread” which is not a bad thing at all – in fact it is a really good thing since it will bring in new customers to fly the new Dreamliner and keep their loyal customers to keep flying American. Congratulations American, very excited and happy for you all. The service its set to be starting by 6/26 and you can start booking by 4/5.

I flew to Shanghai Pudong (PVG) last year during the month of April from Los Angeles on American 777-200, while the flight and service was incredible, the angled flats in Business Class weren’t so comfy and I say that because I have been spoiled on American 777-300. Currently American is flying DFW-PVG on their 777-200 but thats about to change very soon with the latest and great news they shared this morning. If you are interested on reading my trip report and overall flight experience from LAX to PVG, you can check out the trip report on the following link. (Read more).
Last but not least – American shared some wonderful tourist attractions to visit during your trip to Shanghai and I had the great pleasure to visit all of them & I’ll add a few for you not miss that I didn’t see added on the list. Keep in mind that if you are a United States Citizen, you will need a visa before departing to Shanghai and the process was painless but plan ahead. 😉

Bottom line & overall thoughts
I am very excited for American and its newest service and the addition of their aircraft into the route. This will be a game changer for them in many aspects and I will be one of those passengers to fly to Shanghai Pudong on the Dreamliner in the near future. American continues to evolve in many levels and their vision of #GoingForGreat is brighter everyday. As an Executive Platinum, I am very proud of my airline of choice and the innovations being made constantly.
Will you be booking DFW-PVG on the new aircraft?
