American Airlines on Friday said that it has exercised options on two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft and decided to upgrade one of its 777-200ER planes.

In July, the Fort Worth-based airline said that it would become the first U.S. carrier to offer three classes of fully lie-flat seats on its cross-country flights.

"The 777-300ER will play a key role in American Airlines effort to build the most modern, efficient fleet in the industry," said John Wojick, vice president of North America Sales for Boeing, "The airplane will offer American flexibility in serving nonstop routes, while providing increased efficiency and reliability needed to be successful in today's competitive marketplace."
