American Airlines goes pink in October for breast cancer awareness

Working to make impact against breast cancer

American Airlines is going pink this month to help raise awareness of breast cancer. is passionate in supporting cancer and kidney charities.

So we are very keen to promote the work that American Airlines is doing in October for breast cancer awareness.

American is working with Susan G. Komen, an organisation making a real impact against breast cancer, to raise money and awareness against breast cancer and cancer in general.

Every dollar raised by American and its passengers goes to support the Susan G. Komen Young Investigators Grant Program. Through this grant program, researchers are discovering breakthroughs for the most aggressive and deadly breast cancers, including triple negative breast cancer and all forms of the disease that have advanced to stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, meaning they have spread to other parts of the body.

American is raising awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen in several ways:

  • AAdvantage® customers can receive 20 AAdvantage miles for every $1 donated to Susan G. Komen with a minimum donation of $25 from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31.
  • American staff who are survivors of breast cancer will be prominently featured on, on our flight and gate information display screens, in our Admirals Clubs and more at airports around the world.
  • Pink will play a prominent role in flight. Passengers will notice that everything from beverage napkins to the inflight menu, amenity kits, Wi-Fi portal and more have gone pink for the month of October.
  • Passengers can donate directly to Komen while in flight.

In 2017, American Airlines donated USD 1 million to Stand Up to Cancer.
