American Eagle has launched a new daily round-trip flight between Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.

Oklahoma City is one of nine new destinations that American Eagle began serving from Los Angeles on April 5. Eagle, which is the regional-airline sibling of American Airlines, is operating the new Oklahoma City service with 63-seat Bombardier CRJ700 regional jets which feature a two-class cabin.


“Even with one daily nonstop flight, customers from Oklahoma City will have additional travel options each day, as well as more convenient connections through American’s Los Angeles cornerstone hub to other destinations throughout the oneworld® global network,” says Gary Foss, vice president – planning and marketing for American’s regional network. “Favored destinations from Oklahoma City include Hawaii, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.”

American Eagle has long operated a fleet of 25 Bombardier CRJ700 regional jets and in December 2009 ordered 22 more. The carrier is outfitting all 47 in two-class configurations that feature First Class seating as well as new economy-class seats. Every seat on each aircraft is being upholstered in leather

The new Los Angeles flight complements existing American and American Eagle service from Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) to American’s cornerstone hubs in Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth. American Eagle’s new service from Oklahoma City forms part of a major April 5 expansion of American’s Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) cornerstone hub, adding more than 30 flights to 15 communities for a total of more than 150 daily flights.

As part of the expansion, American Eagle began new service on April 5 from Los Angeles International Airport to Albuquerque, Boise, El Paso, Houston, Phoenix, Sacramento, Salt Lake City and Tucson and upgraded its four-times-daily Los Angeles-Denver service from Embraer ERJ-145s to 63-seat Bombardier CRJ700s.

On April 5, also, American Eagle began service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Springfield, Illinois.

American Eagle’s schedule between Oklahoma City and Los Angeles calls for flight AA3798 to depart OKC at 2:40 p.m. and land at LAX at 3:45 p.m. local time.

In the other direction, flight AA3799 is timed to leave LAX at 9:10 a.m. and touch down at OKC at 2:00 p.m. local time.
