American Launches Non-Stop Dallas/Fort Worth-Beijing Service
American Airlines announced the launch of new daily service between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport. The new route is the only non-stop daily flight between the two cities.
Flights depart Dallas/Fort Worth at 11:20 a.m. and arrive in Beijing at 2:15 p.m. the next day. Flights from Beijing to Dallas/Fort Worth depart at 4:25 p.m. and arrive at 4:45 p.m. the same day.
American currently operates the service using Boeing 777-200 aircraft, although it plans to switch to Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner service on June 2. American’s 787-8s are configured with 28 lie-flat seats in business class, 57 seats in main cabin extra, the carrier’s premium economy lite section, and 141 seats in economy.
Business-class seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, and are 21” to 26” wide, with a bed length of 77”. Seats in business class also have power outlets, as well as USB outlets, and business-class passengers have access to a walk-up bar.
The new service will complement American’s existing service between Chicago O’Hare and Beijing. The route is the airline’s 11th between the United States and Asia.
