Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from American Airlines

    FORT WORTH, Texas, April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Adjusting to changing economic conditions, American Airlines announced today
 that it will discontinue daily nonstop service on its Los Angeles-Paris and
 Chicago-Rome routes, effective Nov. 1.  American serves both routes with
 190-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
     American noted that it will continue to provide daily nonstop service to
 Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport from Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, New
 York's Kennedy Airport and Miami, as well as from San Jose, Calif., where the
 airline launched Paris service on April 1.  The airline will be able to
 provide Los Angeles area passengers easy connections to Paris from many of
 those other U.S. gateways.
     Those bound for Rome will be able to get there on American through
 convenient connecting services with British Airways at London, Swissair at
 Zurich and Sabena at Brussels.  American operates nonstop to Brussels from
 Chicago, nonstop to Zurich from Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth, and nonstop to
 London from eight U.S. gateways -- JFK, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Miami,
 Newark, Los Angeles, Boston and Raleigh-Durham.
     Despite the changes announced today, American's broader strategy is to
 strengthen and expand its international route network.  This year alone, the
 airline has begun service between San Jose and Taipei, San Jose and Paris,
 Miami and Maracaibo, and Los Angeles and Los Cabos in Mexico, and by
 November will have introduced the Boeing 777, its newest and largest jet, on
 nine additional international routes during 2001.
     Overall, American on Nov. 1 will remain one of the largest U.S. carriers
 in the transAtlantic marketplace, offering 238 flights a week between nine
 U.S. gateways and 11 destinations in Europe.
