American Airlines Adds First A321T

Woodrow Bellamy III 

American Airlines took delivery of its first Airbus A321 Transcontinental (A321T), continuing its fleet renewal program launched earlier this year. 
 
The A321T is equipped with Gogo's recently upgraded ATG-4 WiFi service, and will be operated between New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). American plans to enter the new A321T into service next year. 
 
"As the only airline to offer a three-class transcontinental service, we're delivering on what our customers flying between New York and the West Coast value," said Virasb Vahidi, chief commercial officer at American Airlines.
 
American plans to continue its fleet renewal program into next year, with more new aircraft deliveries scheduled, including new Boeing 777-300ERs, Boeing 787s and more Airbus A321Ts.
