American Airlines has just unveiled its latest amenity kits and, although no specific release date has been provided in the press release, the airline says they'll appear onboard in "mid-February".
A little earlier I wrote about United Airlines announcing the addition of live TV to over 200 of its aircraft and now we have American Airlines announcing that it will soon be offering access to Apple Music on select domestic flights.
Part of the significant fleet overhaul that American Airlines embarked upon shortly before Doug Parker and friends took charge saw a number of the airline's Boeing 757 aircraft refitted with a modern lie-flat premium cabin. Of the 34 Boeing 757s that American Airlines still has operating 24 were refitted with the same Business Class seats as are found on the airlines' popular A321 transcon services between the coasts.
Today is the last day to book the fantastic oneworld Business Class fares on offer between Germany and the West Coast but, if you need more time to make plans or if those fares don't work for you, you now also have the option to start your journey in Sweden.
It's been a very good start to the new year if you're someone looking to book Business Class fares out of Europe. The British Airways sale is still going strong out of London, Qatar Airways has a few great deals on offer right now out of Scandinavia and the BA fares to Los Angeles that were around on Monday were fantastic. Now we have another set of great fares and, once again, they're to the West Coast.
British Airways & American Airlines have published a number of incredible Business Class fares for travel between the UK and Los Angeles for travel throughout 2019 but, as the fares expire today, you'll have to be very quick if you want to book them.
American Airlines and British Airways are currently offering a fantastic Business Class fare for travel between Gothenburg (Sweden) and Miami. This could be great for a vacation, a great way to lock in some much needed credit towards elite status or, if you book your flights carefully, a good way to earn some redeemable miles too.
The Economy Class cabin on the new American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft have been described as "the most miserable experience in the world" by one of the airline's own pilots and, if you're a Miami-based flyer, you're going to find it increasingly more difficult to avoid these aircraft if you choose to fly with American.
It's always a good idea to pay attention to airline schedule changes if you have one or more flights booked a few months ahead as some of the changes we see can make a significant difference to your flight. The closer you are to your departure date the less likely an airline is to change the aircraft it's employing (unless a mechanical fault or a weather front intervene) but when you have flights booked over six months out the seat/cabin you reserved at the time of booking may look a lot different when it actually comes time to fly.
The Chicago Business Journal has reported that American Airlines is adding 'service analysts' to some of its flights as the airline desperately tries to find ways to get flight attendants to offer customers a reasonable level of service. Unsurprisingly, some within the flight attendant pool are less than happy about this.
