American Airlines, Inc. or “American,” as they are commonly known, is the flag-carrier airline for the United States of America, a founding member of the Oneworld Alliance, and the largest airline in the world.

Headquartered in historic Fort Worth, Texas, its fleet is the largest in the world, it flies more passenger-kilometers than any other airline, and it brings in more revenue than any other airline – however, it is only the second largest in the world by the number of destinations flown to. Still, there’s no shame in second place on the global scale, and American Airlines along with its many regional partners flies to an incredible 350 destinations in 50 different countries.

This extensive domestic and international flight network sees 6,700 American Airlines flights every day and is never silent, constantly alive with flights carrying passengers to their new destinations at any time of the day or night.

American Airlines is one of the founding members of the world-class OneWorld Alliance, the third largest airline alliance in the world, joined with its partners British Airways, Iberia and Finnair across the Atlantic Ocean, as well as Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines across the Pacific Ocean. These are some heavy-hitting flag-carrier airlines, which fits OneWorld Alliance’s drive to connect the world as effectively as possible and provide the best quality air service in the world to as many customers as they can.

Regional service such as that outside the United States is carried out by a subdivision of American Airlines, very Americanly called “American Eagle”.
