FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines says it will become the first U.S. airline to put lie-flat seats in new planes used on transcontinental flights.

American will put the seats in first- and business-class sections of new Airbus A321 aircraft that it will fly between New York and California.

Several airlines offer lie-flat beds on international flights.

The jets are part of an order for 460 new Airbus and Boeing planes that AMR Corp.’s American announced last July.
