The bordbar American Airlines Edition
Incidentally, American Airlines was founded back in 1930 as a result of various regional airlines merging. It was for one of these regional airlines - the Robertson Aircraft Corporation - that aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh flew as chief pilot in 1926. Shortly after the Second World War, the airline also started operating international flights for the first time, leading it to advance to become the world’s largest airline in the 1950s, together with Russia’s Aeroflot. Following the takeover of Trans World Airlines (TWA) in 2001 and the merger with US Airways in 2013, American Airlines is now unequivocally the largest airline in the world with over 900 aircraft to its name and 120,000 employees.
American Airlines combines American aviation history and constant innovation like virtually no other carrier. American Airlines was a founding member of the oneworld Alliance and also the inventor of frequent flyer programmes and electronic booking systems. This symbiosis makes American Airlines the ideal partner for our American Airlines boardbar series.
