American Airlines will bring its flagship Boeing 777-300ER jet to Sydney on Friday November 13 as a prelude to the start of daily flights between Sydney and Los Angeles.
The Boeing 777-300ER will be flown down from Hong Kong overnight, after completing its daily AA137 flight from Dallas, to arrive at Sydney Airport in the early morning.
The airline and its local partner Qantas will conduct walk-through tours to showcase the Boeing's first class (above), business class (below) and economy seating to the media, premium customers, travel agents and corporate accounts on an invitation-only basis.

American Airlines will begin Sydney-Los Angeles flights on December 19 with flight AA72 departing at noon each day to reach Los Angeles at 6.50am that same morning.
The return flight AA73 will be wheels-up from LAX at 9.50pm to arrive in Sydney at 7.55am two days later.
As part of the joint venture Qantas will trim its daily stateside Boeing 747 schedule to three Sydney-LAX flights per week, while also dropping one of the Melbourne-LAX services.
