Haggar is a Dallas-based men's apparel maker with more than 90 years of style, quality and craftsmanship.
"As a medium-sized company competing with large companies, American Airlines
has leveled the playing field with the Business Extra program. As competitive as things are and as thin as margins are, being a member of the Business Extra program and utilizing those points on travel becomes an important part of how we support our business."

Conservation Ambassadors aims to give a worldwide voice to wildlife by providing a permanent, loving home for displaced, abused, abandoned or permanently injured wild and exotic animals.
"We never know when an animal may be in need of a permanent loving home, so having access to Business Extra® points and redeeming them for flights has afforded us the ability to book a ticket and fly across the country to rescue an animal, with the flexibility to rebook if the situation suddenly changes. These points are priceless to us."

American Airlines has always provided outstanding service from start to finish, and being part of Business Extra® improves our travel experience with elite status and increases employee satisfaction by sending gondoliers to compete at the US Gondola Nationals."
