In honor of Women’s History Month, customers can enjoy inspiring and uplifting female-focused movie hits

FORT WORTH, Texas — Celebrating Women’s History Month continues in the skies with free inflight entertainment on American Airlines. Now playing on board American’s flights are 20 beloved female-driven movie hits such as Hidden Figures, Little Women and Mulan.

All inflight entertainment on board American flights is free, including a library of up to 600 movies and TV shows. Customers can reach free entertainment on their phone, tablet or laptop. Simply enable airplane mode and connect to the “AA-Inflight” signal. From there, the entertainment can be accessed from the American Airlines app, or aainflight.com.

“American is proud to honor the rich history and accomplishments of women, especially in a year that has taken such a unique toll with yet more roles and responsibilities to juggle,” said Clarissa Sebastian, Managing Director of premium customer experience and onboard products. “We invite all customers to celebrate Women’s History Month with us and relax with a specially curated movie selection.”

American works with its Employee Business Resource Groups — 20 groups made up of more than 26,000 American Airlines team members that represent different backgrounds, cultures and experiences — to highlight movies that celebrate diversity across its inflight entertainment.
