The trip back to Canada is becoming more and more frequent, which mean’s we’ve had the chance to experience a range of different airlines, airports and classes. On a previous trip home, we were upgraded to Business Class on American Airlines. The total time of the flight is just under 5 hours, which meant we were able to really get a good feel for what the airline had to offer.
Seats offer a motorized lie-flat setting as well as pre-set and manually controlled positions to avoid trying to find the perfect setting throughout the flight. Each seat offers personal powerports for laptop computers, which is always a bonus for those on a long haul flight and needed to get some work done.
The seats have been undergone extensive studies to ensure the maximum amount of comfort is given to each passenger. From the 21″ cushion width to the 6-way adjustable headrest, the team have thought of every aspect.
We did happen to be on one of the older planes, which meant we had a relatively small TV screen, however we did have Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones, which is a AA exclusive and a wonder added touch.
Amenities on board included a small bag with socks, hand cream, lip balm, eye mask, ear plugs, tooth brush & tooth paste, and mouth wash. All the essentials to stay fresh on a long flight.
The meal served was simple and quick, offering a fresh salad and small plate of beef with a corn salad mixture. I was expecting something a bit more, however was quite tasty and the wine selection okay.
Overall the flight was great and a definite step up from the economy class for this airline. I do find however that Business Class on other airlines far more surpass the meaning of upgraded than American Airlines.
