CommentsThe Boeing 777-200 plane is the new flagship of American Airlines. American Airlines equipped this plane with Flagship suites featuring lie-flat beds in First Class. Business Class has slanted flat beds. All classes have AVOD (Audio Video On Demand).
Many seasoned travelers feel that AA really missed the boat on the Boeing 777-200 Business Class seats. Whereas most other airlines are beginning to introduce truly horizontal lie-flat Business Class seats, AA has chosen to go a whole generation backwards with their slanted flat seats. Slanted flat seats are commonly known as "wedgie" seats, since there is a strong tendency to slowly slide toward the foot rest due to the incline. Read more about the new Business Class seats on FlyerGuide.
Remember FEBO (Front Even Back Odd), as this is AA's way of taking meal orders in premium class based on flight number. For Even flight numbers, meal order is taken from the Front, and for Odd flight numbers, meal order is taken from the Back. Pick your seat accordingly if you want to ensure your meal choice.
Certain bulkhead Coach seats on the Boeing 777-200 do not have personal video screens. Also be aware that there is AVOD equipment mounted under the seats of all A, D, F and J seats, taking up valuable legroom. If you are flying in coach, your best bet is to select an aisle seat for more legroom.
