As passenger volumes slowly increase, airlines are adding capacity back into their schedules. American Airlines is planning to fly 55% of its domestic schedule and nearly 20% of its international schedule in July 2020 compared to the same period last year. In Wichita, American is adding an extra flight to Dallas and Chicago. That gives us 4 daily flights to Dallas and 2 daily flights to Chicago.
American also began service to eight international destinations on June 4. These include service from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to Amsterdam (AMS), Paris (CDG) and Frankfurt (FRA), as well as service from Miami (MIA) to Antigua (ANU) in the Caribbean and Guayaquil (GYE) and Quito (UIO) in South America. American also restored additional service to London (LHR) from Chicago (ORD) and New York (JFK).
As demand for travel increases, American will notify and allow customers booked on fuller flights to rebook on more open flights when available, without incurring additional cost. On fuller eligible flights, a percentage of customers will be offered the option to rebook to a different flight during the check-in process.
Other changes include:
- American is opening its Admirals Club lounge in Terminal D at DFW on June 22.
- No change fees will be charged on flights booked by June 30 for future travel.
- American is awarding double AAdvantage miles on flights purchased in June and completed by Sept. 30.
Let’s support the additional capacity so American can grow in our market.
