FORT WORTH, Texas, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines today
launches daily nonstop service between New York's John F. Kennedy
International Airport (JFK) and Dublin Airport (DUB), adding a new destination
to American's extensive network and giving customers traveling from Dublin
nonstop connections out of JFK to cities throughout North, Central and South

from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Dublin and complements its
12 other daily nonstop flights from JFK to Europe. The route will be operated
with a two-class Boeing 757-200 with 181 seats.

service connects American's customers to a wealth of travel options throughout
Europe," said Tim Ahern, American's Vice President – New York and
International. "Adding this route enhances our expanding global network out of
JFK and further establishes American's commitment to providing our customers
in New York seamless, one-stop connections to major business and leisure
destinations in Europe."

To celebrate the new service, American is offering AAdvantage^® members up to
20,000 bonus miles every time they fly a round trip on the route, including
