- American has announced plans to slug it out in the New York-Los Angeles market with hourly shuttle service starting next year. That’s on top of the nine new Los Angeles routes they announced last month. I’m really looking forward to trying out American’s new narrow-body A321 premium cabin seats between New York and Los Angeles/San Francisco. While competitors offer lie-flat products, American’s will be the only three-cabin offering offering on the route. Meanwhile, Joe Brancatelli outlines the competitive landscape at LAX and is way too kinds to the airport facilities.
