How is First class service on a 777 from ORD-DFW like? Is it just like the international product? Is the food better than normal F?

If you expect Int F then you will be very disappointed. Think more akin to international business and you will be a little closer. I'm sure if you have a look on the photo database you will find some photos of dom F.

As for the food, the last time I did domestic F on AA it wasn't bad. Three course meal but this was transcon and apparently in the last year it has gone downhill a lot and you are on a very short flight. Again don't think international F or you will be disappointed. What do you mean by 'better than normal F?'

I don't know how AA sells their 3 class inventory on domestic trips for sure, but I think they sell it as two class.

Their full fare first and Executive Platinum get the suites, and everyone else gets the business class seats.

Service is comparable to their other domestic first flights only.

I believe that flight is a Pacific configurated aircraft with the 2-2-2 in First. I am not sure though. But if in fact it is nothing special. Dont get me wrong it is 10 times better than the M-80 but it isnt that special.

Gigneil AA sells their 3 clas inventory as a two class. The sell Economy and First. That is it. If you get lucky and get on the Atlantic version of their 777 than it is well worth it. But, if you get the pacific it is just another flight on American Airlines.

When the AA ORD-DFW was an MD-11, they use to treat the business class
as coach. If they still offer that on the 777, just buy a nice meal from the airport and take it on board. Why pay a couple of hundred dollars extra
for food. You already have the nice seats at coach fare.

It'd be nice if it were a couple of hundred dollars difference but having checked AA FE for random dates the price is $258 round trip for restricted coach vs $1650 for restricted F

No, the food in first class on ORD/DFW will remain domestic first class style -- it will be mostly a cold plate at most times, and a hot dinner for evening times, as well as a choice of hot and cold breakfast.

For Boeing 777, I have been on flights that the business class section is reserved for elite members and full fare Y passengers. First class section will remain first class...

The seat almost never matters. It's the time and duration for food. The seat is a plus . . . your gonna get the same food on a 737 or 777. This is the same for almost every airline.
It doesn't make sence. Because you are on a larger plane, you should get more/better food.SR

Personally, I only fly certain routes with AA when I'm in the states, purely as I visit Las Vegas, Orlando and Honolulu the most often, I usually end of going via an 'AA' hub to get to these places.

Consequently, some very good deals can be found in First between certain cities (particularly Las Vegas). As I tend to choose Club when I fly BA in Europe, domestic First is my usual choice when stateside. Obviously price is important, however, at the end of the day First IS better than Coach...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

P.S: fbgdavidson - $1600 is for a 'normal' restricted First fare, if you are careful with dates and destinations (maybe even fly into a different gateway) First can be found for far less.

...you honestly believe that's what travelers who fly paid F are paying (or being paid for) for...?

Mr Boy hit the nail on the head. If you pay the money, either you're on expenses or you have so much money it doesn't make a difference.
