Comments

The Boeing 767-200 plane is often used by American Airlines on Premium domestic routes and offers three full classes of service.

First Class on this plane is probably as good as domestic First Class gets, rivaling United Airlines' P.S. First Class. Lots of room, gourmet meals and top-notch service makes this the favorite First Class of many domestic travelers.

Business Class is also quite spacious, similar to older international Business Class products prior to the advent of slanted flat seats. On shorter domestic routes, Business Class is sold as Coach, and often given to American Airlines' elite frequent flyer members. We have received reports that Business Class is now sold as First Class on longer domestic routes where only two classes of service is offered for sale.

Premium Classes are offered complimentary handheld digital audio and video entertainment units, which are available for rent in Economy Class.

The following is courtesy of the FlyerGuide Wiki:

  • First. This cabin was refurbished in 2008-2009 with new Voyager seats in First and LCD cabin monitors. The new Voyager seats go nearly fully flat, are fully motorized, and include a massage function.

  • Business. Recliner seats (reupholstered in 2008-2009) with manual controls, extra recline, footrests, tray tables in the armrests, and DC power at every seat. To extend the footrest fully, operate the levers in order, front-to-back (Legrest Extend, Legrest Angle, Footpad Extend); operate the levers in the opposite order to retract. On some non-transcontinental flights, this cabin may be sold as Domestic First or as Coach, with corresponding service levels. In the latter case, seats in this cabin can be pre-reserved by elites and full fare passengers traveling in Coach.

  • Coach. The exit row (20) is generally considered a good choice because of the extra legroom, although this row does get cold. Otherwise, the coach cabin has standard seats.


  • Tip: Learn about American Airlines' unpublished benefit, called The Challenge - a fast track to elite status and upgrades.
