'American Airlines 777 Preview Tour' Begins; 10-City Tour to Showcase World's Most Advanced Jetliner; First 777 Enters Service March 2, DFW-London; March 28, DFW-Tokyo; Oct. 1, DFW-Osaka
DFW AIRPORT, Texas, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Inside cavernous Hangar 2 at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), American Airlines today kicked off a 10-city Boeing 777 Preview Tour to showcase its newest, largest jetliner to customers, employees and news media. American's Boeing 777-200IGW (Increased Gross Weight) is the first of 34 ``Triple Sevens'' on order by the airline, with 10 more expected in 1999.

The airline also announced that its first 777 service will begin March 2, between DFW and London-Gatwick, followed March 28, between DFW and Tokyo- Narita. On Oct. 1, the 777 will be introduced on its DFW-Osaka route.

``This tour is a preview of the direction American is taking with interior appointments for our entire fleet,'' said Henry Joyner, AA's vice president of marketing planning. ``We're spending more than $400 million on new seats and interiors for all of our aircraft -- designed with the advice of our customers -- and this is the perfect showcase for our new interior look.''

Intended primarily for long-haul, intercontinental flights, American's new 777 seats 237 passengers in three classes of service:

-- 18 First Class seats, built by Rumbold in the UK, electrically recline
to flat sleeping positions, and feature stylized privacy dividers with
added personal storage space. The seats have an adjustable leather
headrest; electric lumbar support, leg rest and foot rest; power ports;
flexible reading lights; personal entertainment system; and AT&T phones
linking to an international satellite network.
-- 56 Business Class seats, built by BE Aerospace, feature "slimline"
styling to maximize legroom; six-way power adjustable headrests; power
ports; entertainment system; and an AT&T phone at every seat.
-- 163 Main Cabin seats, built in Germany by famed automobile seat maker
Recaro, feature "slimline" design to maximize legroom, plus adjustable
headrest and power ports at selected seats. Every seat has an
individual entertainment system.

American's 777 features Rockwell/Collins inflight entertainment system, giving passengers the choice of 10 channels of programming, including movies, and 12 CD-quality audio channels, plus a moving route map updating the passenger on the flight's progress.

Joyner added that the 777s will be used initially to replace existing widebody aircraft on American's Europe and Asian routes, tapping the big twin- jet's outstanding performance capabilities.

``The 777 is more capable and efficient than the MD11 it replaces,'' he explained. ``The 777 can carry more passengers and cargo, fly faster, go farther, arrive earlier, yet consume less fuel than the MD11. American's customers, employees and shareholders are going to love this airplane!''

Boeing calls the 777 a ``paperless airplane'' because it is the first jetliner to be 100 percent digitally designed using advanced three dimensional computer modeling technology, instead of traditional drafting design techniques. The result is a superior airplane.

American was among the top airlines invited by Boeing in the late 1980s to help develop the 777. Participating airlines advised Boeing on features that would make the aircraft appealing to customers, plus easier for crewmembers to operate, and for ground staff to service and maintain.

For example, overhead bins are designed for easy use by people of most any height. Reading light bulbs can be changed during flight by a flight attendant. Cabin temperature can be conveniently controlled by flight attendants for maximum customer comfort. This aircraft is fully accessible for customers with disabilities, including a special wheelchair accessible lavatory. These details and hundreds more add up to a jetliner so comfortable that the 777 will become an instant hit with American's customers.

Pilots control the 777 using ``fly-by-wire'' technology, meaning that digital computers and electrical impulses carry pilot input from the flight deck to the control surfaces, instead of traditional cable connections. All critical systems are highly redundant, with ``back-ups for the back-ups.''

Power is provided by two Rolls-Royce Trent 800 series turbofan engines, each generating a maximum thrust of more than 90,000 pounds. Entry into service of the 777 marks another milestone in the expanding relationship between American and Rolls-Royce. American's 757 and F-100 jets also use Rolls-Royce engines, and American Eagle's ERJ-145s are powered by Rolls- Royce/Allison jet engines.

In addition to DFW, American's 777 will visit New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Jose, Calif., Tulsa, Tucson, Washington, D.C., Miami and Chicago during the month of February.

American Airlines will take delivery of 45 Boeing jetliners in 1999 -- 24 737-800, 11 77-200IGW, 4 767-300ER, and 6 757-200. It will retire 16 older jets this year -- 9 DC-10-10, 6 727-300, and 1 MD11. By year's end 1999, there will be 677 jets in American's fleet.
