American Airlines wants to remain the go-to carrier for Hollywood.

The American Airlines Council on Entertainment — a panel comprised of 3o representatives from the show business industry — was created about 18 months ago. They meet every three months to determine how the airline can cater to its A-list clientele flying out of the Los Angeles International Airport, the L.A. Times reported.

Though the airline has not released the names of the representatives, they include a number of film and TV studio travel bookers and celebrity managers, according to the L.A. Times.

Based on recommendations from the council, the Texas-based airline has already added healthier in-flight meal options and a flight from Los Angeles to Toronto in September for the Toronto Film Festival, the paper reported.

High-profile clients are also afforded a 24-hour service desk and a private reservation number that only a number of American Airlines staffers can access.
