Nonstop from the City of Angels to the Forbidden City? No problem. American Airlines now offers daily nonstop flights to Beijing, the only U.S. carrier to fly this route. Within 24 hours, any Angeleno could be traipsing temples, parks and palaces of beautiful Beijing while Chinese tourists can enjoy Universal Studios Hollywood or L.A.'s world-famous beaches, thanks to American Airlines’ new direct service from LAX to PEK, complementing their existing service to China. It's no wonder that American is the preferred airline of the entertainment industry. Whether traveling for business, fun, or both, American will get you back and forth in style with all of the awesome amenities they’re known for.
