As mentioned above, the title "Luxury Liner" was first put on AA's 747s. In the early 70s when they were first introduced, there was a first class lounge on the upper deck and a coach lounge complete with piano in the aft of the aircraft for coach passengers, making it a true "Luxury Liner." It was just recent AA decided to remove the decals from existing aircraft noting that the title was out of step with modern times. Sadly, the only plane in modern times that could have proudly wore the titles, the 777, never did.
