• American Airlines redesigns interiors

    2010-08-31

    Travelers who frequently fly on American Airlines may find themselves in different surroundings the next time they fly, as the company has announced that it will redesign many of its older planes to add modern amenities.

    According to ABC News, American is in the process of gutting 76 of its Boeing 737s from the inside-out for a completely redesigned interior. The overhaul aims to add a number of new features designed to make flights more comfortable for passengers.

    The company is doubling space for carry-ons, thanks to a new overhead bin complete with an outward-curved door that expands room for bags. In a move aimed at business travelers, American is also adding free Wi-Fi access to all of the planes. On the entertainment side, the carrier will replace bulky TVs with fold-down flatscreen LCDs.

    "We want to make sure all of the bells and whistles are provided," Brian Trujillo, American's 737 project manager, told the news source.

    American is also increasing the capacity of the flights from 148 seats to 160. While this means seats will be slightly closer together, American says passengers will be more comfortable thanks to a new seat reclining system that provides more options.
