Did you know that there is only two airlines that fly from Los Angeles to Shanghai? Both of these airlines are Chinese – China Eastern and Air China. I was as surprised as you could get to know this. However, it will soon change as a new airline has made its way to flying to Shanghai from Los Angeles. It is non other than American Airlines – one of the safest airlines to fly in USA.
American Airlines To Join LA – Shanghai Route
The Los Angeles to Shanghai route will begin on April 5, 2011. Now it will be the spring time so expect some nice flight specials during that time. It will be flown on Boeing 777, which has 16 first class, 37 business class and 194 economy class seats. American Airlines is the only US airline that will fly direct to Shanghai.
According to the press release, American Airlines is very excited about this new route:
These new flights will enrich American’s customer service offering to China and will expand American’s schedule at Los Angeles International Airport, one of its five cornerstone cities.
So if you are planning a trip to Shanghai from Los Angeles, you can fly with American Airlines soon. Book your seats early.
