American Airlines Headquarter, Customer Service



American Airlines Headquarter:

American Airlines opened its new headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas  in September 2019. American Airlines claims the headquarters cost $350 million, while DFW Airport claims that the entire 300-acre campus will be a $1 billion investment by the airline (the campus technically sits on DFW’s land).

The current headquarters consists of at least eight buildings, and the campus is known as “Skyview.” Each building is assigned a number, one through eight.

The airline is building a 600 room hotel intended to house employees who are in training (especially for flight attendants and pilots), though for now that has been put on pause, as American is looking to cut capital expenditures.

It goes without saying that the timing of all of this likely wasn’t ideal. American has cut its management and support staff by somewhere around 30%, and most of the remaining staff are only coming into the office roughly one day per week, and are otherwise working from home.

As of January 2023, American Airlines operates the largest commercial fleet in the world, comprising 933 aircraft from both Boeing and Airbus, with an additional 161 planned or on order.

Over 80% of American’s aircraft are narrow-bodies, mainly Airbus A320 series and the Boeing 737-800. It is the largest A320 series aircraft operator in the world, as well as the largest operator of the A319 and A321 variants. It is the fourth-largest operator of 737 family aircraft and second-largest operator of the 737-800 variant.

American’s wide-body aircraft are all Boeing airliners. It is the third-largest operator of the Boeing 787 series and the sixth-largest operator of the Boeing 777 series.

American exclusively ordered Boeing aircraft throughout the 2000s. This strategy shifted on July 20, 2011, when American announced the largest combined aircraft order in history for 460 narrow-body jets including 260 aircraft from the Airbus A320 series. Additional Airbus aircraft joined the fleet in 2013 during the US Airways merger, which operated a nearly all Airbus fleet.

On August 16, 2022, American announced that a deal had been confirmed with Boom Supersonic to purchase at least 20 of their Overture supersonic airliners and potentially up to 60 in total.

American Airlines operates aircraft maintenance and repair bases at the Charlotte, Chicago O’Hare, Dallas–Fort Worth, Pittsburgh (where all its Airbus narrowbody aircraft are maintained), and Tulsa airports.
