    American Airlines is adding nonstop flights to more cities from Los Angeles, where it's battling United, Southwest and other airlines for dominance.

    American said Wednesday that it will begin service to Eugene and Bend, Ore., on June 12; and Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Columbus, Hartford, Conn., and Bentonville, Ark., on Aug. 27. It began flights between Los Angeles and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., last week.

    American is also seeking government approval to fly between Los Angeles and Sao Paulo, Brazil, beginning in November.

    Los Angeles is one of American's five key markets in the U.S. It's trying to beef up in anticipation of its announced merger with US Airways Group Inc.
