The carrier’s customers may begin booking travel on these flights on Sunday, October 5.

“As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Miami hub, these new routes further underscore Miami’s importance and our commitment to its growth,” says Marilyn DeVoe, American’s vice president – Miami.

With these new routes, American will serve more than 130 domestic and international destinations from its hub at Miami International Airport, providing customers with connections to Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

As seen on the tail of this Boeing 737-800, the new American Airlines livery which the airline adopted in early 2013 did away with the iconic eagle tail logo American had used since the mid-1930s and replaced it with a generic striped theme on the tail and a stylized eagle head on the fuselage. While Future Brands, which designed American's new livery and logo, presumably intended the new tail livery to be reminiscent of the U.S. national flag, the design company may not have realized that in fact it looked similar to that of Cuban national carrier Cubana ‒ an unfortunate reminder given U.S. national policy

Through 2012, the 737-800 was Boeing's highest-selling 737 version, with well over 4,000 sold. During the summer of 2012, Boeing leased a new 737-800 due for delivery to American Airlines back from the airline for three months and used it to conduct flight-testing of advanced technologies aimed at reducing emissions, fuel consumption and community noise
