The new, state-of-the-art Integrated Operations Center will serve as the nerve center for American Airlines, and will house more than 1,400 employees who plan, oversee and dispatch more than 1 million annual mainline flights serving more than 140 million customers. It is anticipated to be completed by the third quarter of 2015
