Imagine a journey that brings great choice and impeccable service from two of the world’s leading airlines. With American Airlines and British Airways, customers can experience just that.
Together offering you more across the Atlantic
American Airlines and British Airways provide the best network to the U.S. With more daily flights and connections to over 240 destinations, travellers have access to just about anywhere. Together, we offer up to 16 nonstop flights between London and New York, the most of any airline or alliance. We're the only alliance to fly a First Class service between London and New York JFK, as well as the all business service from London City, just 10 minutes from Canary Wharf.
We also offer new nonstop routes from London Heathrow to New Orleans and London Gatwick to Oakland this spring and a direct service between London Gatwick and Fort Lauderdale this summer, all operated by British Airways.
Plus, for customers who want to travel to North America without going South, they can get back on board American’s seasonal services from Edinburgh to New York JFK, from Glasgow to Philadelphia and from Manchester to Chicago and New York JFK.
A New level of comfort
Now, every flight to the U.S.* offers fully lie-flat seats in Business Class and Club World, together with everything travellers need to stay at 100% with universal power and USB outlets. You can even relax with an extensive choice of in-seat entertainment. Not only this, but when travelling on American’s Boeing 777-200 Retrofit, 777-300ER and 787 Dreamliner, you can stay connected with Transatlantic Wi-Fi. It’s the best premium experience across the Atlantic.
