American Airlines is upgrading its service between El Paso International Airport (ELP) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Starting Thursday, November 5th, AA will begin using 76-seat Embraer E-175 large regional aircrafts between the two airports.  This upgrade will offer additional service options to passengers, including a two-class configuration with 12 First Class seats and 64 Main Cabin seats.
