American Airlines is upping the ante on its international service offering in conjunction with the launch of its new nonstop flights between Sydney and Los Angeles which debut this month - seeing the carrier return to Australian skies for the first time in 23 years.

American Airlines is upping the ante on its international service offering in conjunction with the launch of its new nonstop flights between Sydney and Los Angeles which debut this month – seeing the carrier return to Australian skies for the first time in 23 years.

AA’s Australian 777-300ER flights will see pyjamas provided for business class passengers, while the airline is also revamping its AAdvantage loyalty scheme to make it based on the fare paid rather than mileage-based.

On a visit to Sydney last month to launch the new route AA CEO Doug Parker said the carrier was making a massive investment to satisfy the Australian market.

“Every seat on the aircraft features personal, in-seat, on-demand HD entertainment screens,” he said. AA will also offer in-flight internet connectivity on its new Pacific route – a development QF will be watching with interest.
