American Airlines Begins Dreamliner Service Between LAX and Chicago
Qantas passengers travelling from Australia to Chicago will soon be able to fly the popular 787 Dreamliner when connecting with American Airlines at Los Angeles International Airport.
American Airlines will begin nonstop Dreamliner service between LAX and Chicago O’Hare on 2 June 2016, when it replaces the 737-800 currently being used, with the new 787-8 Dreamliner.
While American operates nearly a dozen flights between the two cities, the 787 Dreamliner service will operate just one daily trip, departing LAX at 9:40am and arriving into Chicago O’Hare at 3:45pm.
The flight gives Qantas passengers arriving into LAX on QF11 from Sydney, QF93 from Melbourne and QF15 from Brisbane, plenty of time for connections to the American Airlines Dreamliner flight to Chicago.
The return Dreamliner flight back to LAX will depart Chicago in the early evening, arriving at LAX in time for late evening connections back to Australia.
American’s 787-8 features an all-new Business Class with 28 lie-flat beds, as well as 198 Economy seats, 57 of which are dedicated to the extra-leg-room Main Cabin Extra product. American does not yet feature a Premium Economy cabin on its aircraft.
