American Airlines has the distinction of being the largest airline in the world in terms total passenger transported and second in terms of revenue earned.

The first regularly scheduled flight that was to later become American Airlines took off on April 15, 1926 when Charles Lindbergh flew a bag of mail from Chicago to St. Louis in a DH-4 biplane. A year later the first passenger flight took off from Boston to New York, heralding the real first passenger airplane travel by American Airlines.

The quality of air travel has been improved by the innovative contributions made by American Airlines. Now with a fleet of 707 aircraft and serves 171 cities in the world - a proud milestone in air travel indeed.
