American Airlines Is Considering Flying to Africa and India with New Dreamliners

  • Skift Take American Airlines, lacking the global footprint of its top two U.S. competitors, may expand to India and Africa once a second batch of Boeing 787 orders starts arriving next year, an executive told Skift this week in an interview in Dallas.
  • While Delta Air Lines and United Airlines added new global strengths after recent mergers, American did not, as US Airways was predominantly a North American and transatlantic airline.
  • The last time American flew to India, U.S. airlines didn’t have to contend with massive completion from three Gulf airlines — Etihad Airways, Emirates, and Qatar Airways.
