Taking a trip to LIM this fall departing AUS. Saw only AA operates 757 to LIM, is that correct? If so, I would be flying 1st class. Is the 1st class seats in a AA 757 nice? Would never fly Y class in a 757! haha, if you got a pic of the seats, post please.

First class on AA's 757s is ok--it's just standard domestic first class. The pitch is only 39 inches--not stellar, but certainly better than coach on a flight of that length.

Continental, by contrast, has BusinessFirst--with a 55 inch pitch--on the 757s it flies to LIM. So, if fares/mileage allow, you might be better off going with CO via IAH instead.

CAL,

Only flying AA because my CFI is an AA senior captain and I am on his "list" to fly 1st class always and super discounted fares. It's the only reason I don't frequent AF, BA, or LH 744s to see my folks across the pond. Would really love to fly a 744 soon.

I stand corrected--I guess CO no longer has BF to LIM (it was last summer when I flew EWR-LIM).

Anyway, AA will be fine, and Peru is fantastic. Enjoy your trip!

BF to Lima is history, sorry! About 6 to 8 months ago, CO reconfigured four 757s from international configuration to domestic configuration, and, at that point, the Lima flights (both EWR and IAH) lost their BF service. Logic was that the flights to Lima are not much longer in duration than US transcon flights, and CO picked up an extra 8 F class and an extra 3 Y class seats to sell on the flights. The only CO flights to South America that now feature BF service are those to Brazil operated with the 767.

AA does operate the 757 into Lima, and its F class accommodation and service on the 757 is really nothing special - but its certainly better than sitting in the back. I think (not sure) that AA markets the seats upfront on the 757 as Business Class (nor First) on flights to Latin America. I could be wrong.

AA also flies the A300 to LIM from MIA, though that would mean a double connection from Austin, at least for now...

I think what Aa777jr meant was that hes on his pilots friends D3 Travel List. Therefore he would not always fly first class, just when its available and everyone else has been accommodated.

757? Checking AA.com and Amadeus.net, you'll be taking an A300-600. Its listed on the timetable for the rest of the year. (I assume you'll be flying via MIA, I can't find any direct LAX-LIM/JFK-LIM flights on AA) And what's so bad about flying Y class in a 757? It's comfy enough for me...

I think he was talking about connecting via DFW. AA flies a 757 daily from DFW to LIM.

Why dont take AA 763 or A300 to BOG (from MIA) and then AV 762 to LIM? Really good business products. Oh well, but if you already bought your ticket...

I took AA 757 from DFW-SJO-DFW, its the old first class seats. They were nothing great. But it was better then sitting in coach.

If you want to really experience good first class, try Lan Chile. You will earn miles as in AA anyway.

Nothing like LA for USA-South America, specially first class! LAN has the same seats for business and first (and some coach) for the 340 and the 767

Enjoy First and Business:

AA777,

that is exactly what I'm talking about. I am on my CFIs D3 list and get (99%) the best seat that is open. I am always the last to board the plane, and haven't ever been on AA 757 2 class seating. Use to 767 or 777. Not a huge fan of any 757 carrier.

RCS763av,

That sounds like a great idea, I make travel arrangements only a few days before I fly, being on the D3 List, I don't get priority. I will ask my CFI about it.

People! He is flying on AA already. LA Does not even fly to AUS, or Texas for that matter. Flying AUS-DFW-MIA-BOG-LIM? So he can experience AV business class on one leg? You have got to be kidding me. If he had the choice to fly AUS-LIM, then either CO, or AA, would be the way to go. AA Did use their 762 from DFW-LIM. Although I don't know when that stopped.

EWR-LIM is a tad longer than a transcon. I flew MIA-LIM when UA had the route on a 757 and A-320, not too bad. Did MIA-LPB/VVI on AA which is about the same as MIA-LIM and it was fine. DFW-LIM would be, imho, a stretch, even in F (which is marketed as Business). The flight attendants, at least on MIA-LIM, are LIM-based and are very nice and service-oriented.

Did CO pull the BF out of the 757 that flew EWR-BOG-UIO, as well?

Have to take a cab from LGA to JFK, AA is very famous for using that little 2 hr connection window to make you fork out an arm and a leg to speed in a cab between the two airports.

AA does not fly JFK-LIM. You'll be on a LAN 763 both ways. Which is a good thing. LAN's service is considered one of the best in the airline industry. Also, being from Austin, you probably know this, but the AUS-LGA flight makes a stop in Houston (Hobby). Sounds like a fun trip, enjoy it!

Ok, so you're doing AUS-HOU-LGA (there are no nonstops AUS-LGA either) on AA, then JFK-LIM on LAN? Just curious...

27 MAH4546 : he could do AUS-MIA-BOG-LIM No he can't. AA doesn't fly AUS-MIA, although American Eagle plans to launch the service in the not-so-distant future.
28 Post contains images Aa767400 : RCS763av, Seems like you are the only moron here. A: AA does not fly AUS-MIA. B: Why would you fly AUS-DFW-MIA-BOG-LIM? That would be not only moronic
