American Airlines Group turns 1

A year ago today, American Airlines' headquarters were filled with cheering employees ringing silver bells to celebrate the birth of a new company, American Airlines Group.

Star-Telegram photographer Paul Moseley captured the moment where the Fort Worth company's stock began trading on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol AAL.

 

To celebrate its 1st birthday, American announced several new customer initiatives on Monday including renovating its Admirals Clubs and retrofitting its Boeing 757s with fully-lie flat business-class seats and new main cabins. Its Airbus A319s will also be retrofitted with new seats and power outlets throughout the cabin. 

Adding in the previously announced retrofits of its Boeing 767s and 777s and the new aircraft deliveries, American said it will spend $2 billion over the next three years on these customer improvements, which the Star-Telegram reported in this Sunday article looking at what's ahead for American in 2015.
