CHICAGO, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines will add seasonal daily nonstop service to Zurich, Switzerland, this summer, giving Chicago travelers a second daily option from the Windy City to the world's ``Little Big City'' and to more than 20 other Swissair destinations beyond.
AA Flight 170 begins service June 1 between Chicago O'Hare and Zurich using a 155-seat Boeing 767 with AA's unique ``More Room'' configuration. American's new international configuration offers expansive first and business class cabins, and AA's exclusive roomier seats in coach. Only American offers ``More Room Throughout Coach.''

American is also the industry leader in providing A/C powerports in first and business class and selected rows in coach. All these extras customers have come to expect from American.
American's Chicago-Zurich seasonal service continues through October. It complements AA's existing daily year-round codeshared service from Chicago with Swissair. American also operates a daily non-stop flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Zurich.
``With this service American customers now have two non-stop options from Chicago and one non-stop service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, all with the comfort and amenities that make American and its codeshare partner Swissair a terrific choice for business and leisure travel to Switzerland and beyond,'' said Mike Gunn, executive vice president of marketing for American.
