American Airlines can be useful for routings to the US as they have a good destinations list, and also will tranship from one of their flights to another at one of their major hubs providing the connection times are adequate i.e over 4 hours.

They have temperature restrictions in place throughout their network, so every part of the journey must have ground temperatures within what they term their ‘safe range’ of between 45°F to 85°F (7°C to 29°C), so it is often a less feasible route than would be expected during the hot summer and cold winter months. This is unfortunate as they are a good and trusted carrier who have transported pets for more than 50 years. It is best for pets to travel with AA during the Spring and Autumn and then they are a safe option.

AA have an extensive list of dog breeds that they will not carry: Affenpinscher, American Bully, American Staffordshire Terrier, Boston Terrier, Boxer (All breeds), Brussels Griffon, Bulldog (All breeds), Cane Corso, Chow Chow, Dogue De Bordeaux, English Toy Spaniel, Japanese Chin, Lhasa Apso, Mastiff (All breeds), Pekingese, Pit Bull, Presa Canario, Pug (All breeds), Shar Pei, Shih Tzu, Staffordshire Terrier and Tibetan Spaniel.

The Cat breeds also embargoed are Burmese, Exotic Shorthair, Himalayan and Persian.
