Back in December, American Airlines announced that they were investing over $2 billion to “improve your productivity, convenience and comfort in the skies.” Here are some of the updates to American First Class and other enhancements that they are making; coming to a flight near you!

American Updates First Class And More

On international flights
In First Class: We’re introducing a new amenity kit that includes all of the items you already love – plus, by popular demand, we’re adding Scope® mouthwash for a breath of fresh air. But we’re not stopping there. If you’re planning to catch some zzz’s, we’ve added new pajamas and non‑skid 100% cotton terry slippers. So curl up, get comfortable and settle in for the long haul.

In Business Class: Stay refreshed in the air with a throwback to our past as we introduce new, limited‑edition heritage amenity kits. Inspired by the nine airlines that came together to build American Airlines, these collectable kits are designed in the colors of each airline’s livery. Doubling as a mini tablet holder, the heritage kit includes all the premium items you’ve come to enjoy. Look out for the first three retro kits featuring Trans World Airlines (TWA), Piedmont and RenoAir.

On transcontinental flights
In First Class: You’ll have another chance to collect our limited‑edition heritage amenity kit – the same kit you’ll find in Business Class on international flights.

In Business Class: We’re introducing a brand‑new amenity kit that’s stocked with socks, eyeshades, a toothbrush, toothpaste and ear plugs. It’s everything you need to arrive feeling refreshed and ready to go.
In all of our new amenity kits, you’ll find all‑natural, boutique toiletry products from red flower, a New York‑based, eco‑friendly beauty and lifestyle brand. Plus, you’ll also find the same botanical red flower products as you do on board in our Admirals Club® lounges, because luxury shouldn’t stop once you touch down.


As we continue upgrading your experience, we’ve added even more complimentary food offerings in all lounges, which include a hearty selection of soups, Greek yogurt, oatmeal and new sweet and savory snacks.
And if you need to catch up on business or touch base with family and friends, log on to one of our new Dell PC workstations, coming this spring. 

Bottom Line

It will be exciting to see these changes implemented in upcoming flights. I’ll be interested to see what other changes are coming next from American! Have you see any of these updates yet on a recent flight?

  1. What do you think the chances are that AA will offer amenity kits to first class passengers on the 7-8 hour non-stop DFW -HNL route? Granted, this route is not “transcontinental” but it is longer and is also a red-eye going east.
