AA Boeing 757 New Business Class

American Airlines 2382

Boeing 757 New International Business Class

I was flying down to Sao Paulo and decided to fly via Miami in order to get into Brazil early in the morning.

I picked a midday flight operated by a 75L with 16 Business Class seats and was pleasantly surprised when I saw the new Business Class onboard!

The seats are almost identical to the 321 seats but with no IFE built in, this was truly a super cheap move by AA which doesn't make sense as the seat could have supported IFE.

Service started with the traditional hot nuts and in my case a Jack Daniels with Coke Zero...

I had pre-ordered the Asian salad which came with a side order of chicken, allowing both vegetarians and carnivores to enjoy the meal!

Desert was served a few minutes later with hot (pre-baked) chocolate chip cookies served (in my case with some Baileys on the rock!)

Random cabin shots

Overall, using the 321T Business Class seat but without any installed IFE seemed like a cheap move on AA's part, not something that an going for great airline would do...

Flying Delta Business Class to Los Angeles

Delta Boeing 767-300 (76P/76Q)
Atlanta (ATL) to Los Angeles (LAX)
3:15 PM  – 5:19 PM, 5:04 duration
Business Class – 2E
Food – Lunch

I did my research in advance, and at first I debated doing a tour of SkyClubs but later found out that a new club “The Club at ATL” had opened up in Terminal F, the International one. I had over an hour to burn so decided to board the train and do the trek to F.

It was now time to fly the 763 to LAX. I booked it thinking it was an international configuration, but soon discovered the horrible pitch that awaited me on my flight to Los Angeles. 37-38 pitch but it felt like the infamous Thai Airbus 300. Passengers were reclining their seats even during the takeoff roll but the crew didn't realize it


Decided to try the Delta Burger, it gets tons of praise on the Delta forum and for a burger at 35,000 pretty darn good, could be a bit less well done, but not bad. Several more Jack and Coke Zeros and we were landing in LAX.
