New jets on American's Pittsburgh-to-Chicago flights will provide more legroom, leather seats and more

Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013, 2:15 p.m.
 

Passengers on American Airlines flights from Pittsburgh International to Chicago will have more legroom and more overhead storage room starting Friday when the airline rolls out new jets.

The 76-seat Embraer E-175 will be in use between Chicago and three cities — Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Albuquerque. The airline plans to expand its E-175 service as additional jets are phased in. The first passengers on the new jet will depart Pittsburgh at 7:35 a.m. Friday.

The large, regional jets will have 12 first-class seats and 64 seats in the main cabin, including 20 with the extra leg room. Operated by Republic Airlines, the regional jets also have larger restrooms, leather seats and adjustable headrests.
