Los Angeles – London Heathrow (2nd daily service beginning March 28, 2015)

AA 108 LAX1755 – 1225+1LHR operated by a 777

AA 109 LHR1215 – 1540LAX operated by a 777
AA 135 LHR1400 – 1730LAX operated by a 777

This is a highly profitable route for American, and upgrade space is slim on the current 1 daily flight. Along with their join venture with British Airways, Los Angeles will now feature 4 daily roundtrips to London (oneworld).
