American Airlines plans to add an additional flight between Los Angeles and Toronto, Canada, starting in September.

The flight will reportedly run during the Toronto Film Festival, which takes place from September 7 through September 14. The Fort Worth-based airline will operate the additional flight using the same Airbus A321T aircraft it uses on its premium transcon routes that link New York with San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The move is apparently the result of a recommendation from the American Airlines Council on Entertainment, a panel formed in 2014 that is comprised of advisors from the entertainment industry, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

American’s A321T aircraft feature ten individual lie-flat seats in a 1-1 configuration in the first-class cabin, 20 lie-flat seats in a 2-2 configuration in business class, 36 seats in the airline’s premium economy lite section, and 36 seats in standard coach.

The airline will continue to operate its year-round non-stop flight between the two cities using a standard A319 aircraft.
