American Airlines to Launch Los Angeles-Shanghai Flights

American Airlines has filed an application with the US Department of Transportation for permission to serve Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) with nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

If approved, flights would commence April 5th, 2011 aboard Boeing 777-200ER aircraft featuring 16 First Class, 37 Business Class and 194 Economy class seats.

“These new flights would be the only nonstops between Los Angeles and Shanghai operated by a U.S. airline,” said Will Ris, American’s Senior Vice President – Government Affairs. “Los Angeles-Shanghai is the largest U.S. – China market for air travel and we believe it is in the public’s interest to offer more air service between the two cities and to provide new connecting opportunities for passengers traveling to other points in the U.S. and China.”

American currently flies to Shanghai from their hub at Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD). China Eastern Airlines offers the only nonstop service between LAX and Shanghai.
