American Airlines is launching daily service between Miami International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on June 14.
“By using this new flight, Seattle-Tacoma customers will be able to easily enjoy the beaches of South Florida and make convenient connections to other American and American Eagle flights to the Caribbean, Central and South America, as well as the Bahamas,” says Marilyn DeVoe, American Airlines’ vice president – Miami.
“Miami residents can use the new service to reach the cool Pacific Northwest, plus our Latin America customers will have an additional U.S. city to connect to,” adds DeVoe. “Seattle joins Barcelona and Manaus, Brazil, as the third new destination from Miami we have added this year.”
American Airlines will operate its Miami-Seattle service with Boeing 757-200s, each fitted with 22 First Class seats and 166 Main Cabin seats.
The airline’s schedule for the route will see flight AA1087 leaving Miami International Airport (MIA) at 8:25 p.m. and arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) at 11:45 p.m., local time.
In the other direction, flight AA1085 is timed to depart SEA at 9:25 p.m. and touch down at MIA at 6:25 a.m. the following morning, local time.
American is currently upgrading its 101-aircraft Boeing 757 fleet to enhance the customer experience on board. Upgrades to American’s domestic fleet include the installation of new seats, new cabin interiors, and updated in-flight entertainment equipment throughout the aircraft.
Also, the First Class cabin in each Boeing 757 will receive two additional seats, which will increase the number of First Class seats from 22 to 24 on each aircraft. The airline plans to have the Boeing 757 interior enhancements completed by December 2015.
