American To Begin Nonstop Service Between DCA and LAX
American Airlines will begin nonstop service between Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on June 14, 2012.
The route will be operated using Boeing 757 aircraft, which feature 22 first-class seats and 166 in coach. American is currently upgrading its 757s to include new seats, interiors, and LCD monitors.
“The new flight between Washington Reagan and Los Angeles is made possible because of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization bill that was recently passed by Congress and signed by President Obama,” said Will Ris, American’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, in a written statement. The bill allows airlines with previously limited service to DCA to fly five new routes outside a previous 1,250-mile perimeter.
Tickets for these flights go on sale Sunday, March 4.
