Fly Manchester to Chicago on a Dreamliner with American Airlines

American AirlinesBrits can now fly from Manchester to Chicago on one of the world’s most modern aircraft, courtesy of American Airlines.

The ultra-modern Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner – the latest addition to the carrier's fleet – will come into service on the Manchester Airport to Chicago O'Hare International Airport route.

State of the art

The airline’s new Dreamliner aircraft offer passengers a state of the art experience onboard, as the

787-8 features satellite Wi-Fi which means full internet connectivity while in the air. There is also higher humidity and pressurisation which means a more comfortable journey which promises to leave customers refreshed after they disembark.

Configuration for each aircraft will see 28 fully lie-flat Business Class seats that each have direct-aisle access, an additional 55 Main Cabin Extra seats that come with extra leg room, and 143 Main Cabin seats.

30 year connection

The first American Airlines service operating from Manchester began with flights to Chicago in April 1986.

David Thomas, Director of Sales, UK & Ireland, at American Airlines, said: “Upgrading our Chicago flight to the 787 underpins the importance of the Manchester market to American, and is a fitting way to celebrate our 30th anniversary in the north-west.

“Serving Manchester, along with our joint business partner British Airways, is crucial to maintaining our strong competitive position in the UK.”

Stephen Turner, Commercial Director at Manchester Airport, said he was delighted with the decision of American Airlines to bring the 787 Dreamliner onto their Chicago route. “I am sure our 23 million annual passengers will appreciate the upgraded experience and the additional choice of service available onboard,” he said.
