As I posted earlier today, American Airlines unveiled the first of its new fleet of domestic A319’s at Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) Airport yesterday and our contributor Scott was impressed by the leather seats, the seat-back entertainment systems, and just that general “new plane” smell.

The A319 will begin flying from Dallas Fort Worth on September 16, 2013.
The A319 will begin flying from Dallas Fort Worth on September 16, 2013.

So to celebrate, and possibly get some in-air coverage from a TPG reader, for today’s Thursday Giveaway, I’ll be giving one lucky winner a $200 American Airlines voucher that they can use for any flight – but hopefully one on one of these new planes, which go into service next month.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling me which route you’d use your voucher on and why. It doesn’t have to be an A319 route – just any American Airlines-operated route.

All entries must be in by 5:00pm ET on Sunday, August 18, and we’ll announce the winner on Monday. Good luck, and happy flying!
