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.
