American Airlines Business ExtrAA Program Now Rewarding Business Travelers at Dallas Love Field

Members Will Earn Triple Credit on Flights to St. Louis, Kansas City, San Antonio or Austin

FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — To celebrate the launch of its new service from Dallas Love Field, American Airlines is announcing a valuable new offer for members of its Business ExtrAA program, the corporate travel award and incentive program that allows companies to manage business travel while earning points for travel awards. Beginning March 2 through Dec. 31, 2006, Business ExtrAA members will earn triple credit when flying American Airlines or American Eagle between Dallas Love Field and St. Louis, Kansas City, San Antonio or Austin.

American Airlines designed the Business ExtrAA program to meet the travel needs of small and mid-sized companies. Member companies earn Business ExtrAA points every time their employees purchase qualifying tickets on American Airlines, American Eagle, and AmericanConnection(R) carriers. Employees simultaneously earn AAdvantage(R) miles, in addition to the Business ExtrAA points companies accrue. Members may choose from more than 45 award options, including international travel, First and Business Class travel, seat assignment upgrades, Admirals Club(R) awards and more.

“From pre-reserved seating to First Class service to the world-leading AAdvantage program, American Airlines is committed to providing a superior product to travelers at Love Field — and the Business ExtrAA program is just one more example of that commitment,” said David Cush, American’s Vice President and General Sales Manager. “The Business ExtrAA program has proven to be a valuable tool for thousands of businesses. We’re looking forward to bringing Business ExtrAA to Love Field so that our customers who live or work near that airport can take advantage of this fantastic program and this valuable new offer.”

In December 2005, American Airlines announced that it and its regional affiliate, American Eagle, would begin service at Dallas Love Field on March 2, with a total of 16 flights a day. American will operate four flights a day between Love Field and St. Louis, and three flights daily on the Love Field-Kansas City route, with 136-seat MD80 jets featuring first-class as well as coach service. American Eagle will fly four times a day between Love Field and San Antonio, and five times a day between Love and Austin, using 50-seat Embraer 145 Regional-Jet aircraft.
