MEM in Rollout of American’s First New Airbus-319 Aircraft

Memphis International was one of the four initial routes from Dallas-Fort Worth Airport that American Airlines has selected to serve with its new A319 aircraft. American began retiring the aging MD80 aircraft on these routes last month and will have replaced them on all four of their daily MEM – DFW flights by the end of October.

“Everything about the new A319 aircraft has been designed with the customer at the center,” said Virasb Vahidi, American’s Chief Commercial Officer.

The 128-seat aircraft gives passengers a more luxurious experience with leather seats throughout, wider seats, wider aisles, plush carpet and more overhead storage bin space. In addition to First Class and Main Class seating, the A319 offers Main Class Extra seating with 4-6 more inches of legroom.

Every seat throughout the aircraft is equipped with the latest technology for inflight entertainment, connectivity and productivity. This includes individual high definition screens, a selection of programs and movies, television shows, music, audio books and games. Wi-Fi is available to connect on-line and individual 110v outlets and USB jacks at every seat can keep your devices powered during your trip.

The A319 is the quietest, most reliable, most fuel efficient aircraft flying in the single-aisle category and represents the future of what American’s narrow- bodied fleet will look like.
