American Airlines released the initial schedules for their Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, to be deployed on routes to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and London, England, later in the year. The new aircraft is American’s first new plane in some time, and American is the first United States-based carrier to fly the 777-300 aircraft.
