Per the Star-Telegram, Over the past year, American has been updating their Boeing 777-300ER fleet, which it flies on flights from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport to Hong Kong, Los Angeles to London and New York to Sao Paulo, Brazil to name a few.

Per the article, new amenities include Bose noise-canceling headsets, bed slippers and amenity kits with Dermalogica and Akhassa products, along with menus offering a choice of four entrees and several wine and liquor selections.

According to Brett Snyder from CrankyFlier.com, American’s upgrades allow it to catch up to United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, both which already have flat-bed seats on their long-haul flights.

“You spend a lot of time on an airplane so we wanted to make sure the design and the finishes allow for a peaceful journey,” said Fern Fernandez, American’s vice president of global marketing. “We’re in the business of transporting you from point A to point B, but we want to make it in a comfortable sort of fashion that puts you at ease.”

Bottom Line
With these new enhancements to American’s 777-300ER, they will be just as competitive as United and Delta on these long-haul flights, and I can’t wait to try this new service.
Have you flown American recently on a long-haul flight? What was your experience with them?

    This is all the same from when the 773 was first introduced…over a year ago. Your timing is a tad off. :)

    This airline is a joke…they have flatbeds on 5 routes in their fleet. I feel sorry for anyone who wastes their miles and gets an angled seat for business/first.

    @ Ford — it’s no mystery which routes have lie-flat seats. If you use miles and end up in an angle-flat seat, it’s no one’s fault but your own. This is generally referred to as “informed comsumerism.”

    @ Taylor for a points hound or a frequent flyer I’d agree that the info is out there, the general populace would be hard pressed to be able to plan out an intercontinental trip by route and body style without a travel agent. Point stands, AA’s fleet still way behind.
