FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- American Airlines and its American Eagle affiliate will add new flights to San Diego and Mexico this summer.
American said Thursday that starting June 12, it will add a single daily flight in each direction between Miami and San Diego using 150-seat Boeing jets.
The same day, American Eagle will begin flying from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to two new stops in Mexico -- daily to Hermosillo and three days per week to Zacatecas -- if it gets government approval. Those flights will use 44-seat Embraer planes.
American and Eagle are owned by AMR Corp. (UNKNOWN: AAMRQ.DL ) , which plans to merge with US Airways Group (UNKNOWN: LCC.DL ) . The merger is awaiting approval from U.S. antitrust regulators, the judge in AMR's bankruptcy case, and shareholders of both companies.
