Pudong Airport By Wolfgang Staudt
Yesterday was another big day for American, the U.S. Department of Transportation approved their application to start service between Los Angeles and Shanghai, China.
From the release:
“We thank DOT officials for their expedited review of our request and we look forward to launching these new daily flights on April 5 using 247-seat Boeing 777 aircraft, which feature 16 First Class, 37 Business Class and 194 Economy Class seats.”
If you read through the release, you’ll notice that American now refers to Los Angeles as one of their five “cornerstone cities”, emphasizing the elevated importance that they’re placing on LAX.
