CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -
American Airlines is upgrading their aircraft that serve the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport (CHA), which will mean increased seating capacity for direct flights to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).
Flights to Dallas/Fort Worth will be serviced using the Embraer 175, which seats 76 passengers.
Some Charlotte flights will use the Bombardier CRJ–900, which also seats 76 passengers.
The larger aircraft will offer travelers the choice of First Class seats, Main Cabin Extra seats with more legroom and Wi-Fi on select aircraft throughout the cabin.
“We’re proud to increase seating capacity to Chattanooga from our two largest hubs, Dallas/Fort Worth and Charlotte,” said Michael Britman, managing director of Domestic Capacity Planning for American Airlines. “This highlights American’s commitment to providing the best network and customer experience.”
American is investing $3 billion for travelers' comfort, by adding more all-aisle access; fully lie-flat seats; international Wi-Fi; more in-flight entertainment options and power outlets; and improved food and beverage offerings.
American Airlines currently offers two daily round-trip flights between Chattanooga and Dallas, and six between Chattanooga and Charlotte.
