“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” –Maya Angelou
Travel expands the mind, opens the heart and sharpens the senses. Travel heightens the connection to the human family, regardless of language or cultural differences. The more you travel, and the more you learn about this planet we call home, the richer your life becomes.

American Airlines is continuing its long tradition of helping travelers’ navigate a potpourri of travel options.
