Hey everyone,

I just got an e-mail this morning that I'm being uprgrade to First on my flight Wednesday morning from DFW-EWR on a Super 80. I just have a few questions that I'm sure can be answered easily:

1. Since the flight is an odd # should I sit in the front or back of the cabin to get first choice of meal service?

2. Is it a full breakfast service or just a 'breakfast snack' service? I had this one time from MCO-LGA and it was a pretty pathetic offering.

3. Is Bulkhead legroom (Row 3) for the better or worse on the Super 80?

The reason why I ask these questions is I'm just wondering whether I should save my upgrade coupons or use them. Considering I'm connecting out of a redeye flight from LAX, I'm thinking that a seat up front would be nice for a meal and seat comfort for sleeping. Thanks in advance.

I doubt there is a choice of food at that hour on that length flight, so the front/back issue is not likely the key concern. Check out Seatguru for specifics on which seat you might like.

I'd always use my upgrades on a better F seat like the 738 or 767 than the Super80 or 757, but that's just me.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Sorry, I guess I'm a bit confused...

Are you asking whether or not to use your upgrade coupons for the DFW-EWR flight as opposed to your LAX redeye? Or are you already up front for the DFW-EWR flight and asking whether or not to use the coupon for the LAX redeye?

And secondly, are you asking these questions for the EWR flight or the LAX flight, or both?

Now, onto the questions:

1) 1590 is an even  Wink numbered flight so the choices will be in the front. Remember FEBO. Front-Even, Back-Odd.

2) I would expect on a flight from DFW-EWR you will be given two choices, as has been my experience with domestic flights (or international flights catered domestically) of about that duration.

3) Personally, I don't like bulkheads because there isn't any floor storage. For some people, that isn't a problem, but I don't like having to get up and get things if I want them (and have to climb over somebody because I'm always in the window  Wink). Honestly, I feel like the bulkhead is a little smaller because of its rigidity and lack of foot cutouts IIRC, but it's perfectly satisfactory. It's a personal preference, but I like row 4. Easy on, easy off, and floor storage. For odd numbered flights, row 5.

Never flown on a redeye, so I couldn't tell you the advantages.

Michael is probably right, if you're asking about the redeye. Food choices will be limited, and probably no bona fide meal because it falls outside their "meal window" times.

Enjoy your flights!

Cheers,
Cameron

Morning flights lasting longer than two hours usually offer the "breakfast" service, not the "continental breakfast." The choices are cereal or an omelette. Both come with fruit, bagels, and biscuits. The E/F side on S80 have more leg room in the bulkhead, due to the closet and lav on the A/B side. So if you dont mind the normal restrictions of sitting in the bulkhead, F is the best seat.

The red-eye flights usually, depending on the length, have a snack service. Snack service is warm nuts, salad, cheese and crackers, choice of entree, and baked-on-board cookies.
The snack options were good up until recently. The wrap and cob salad were great. However the choices have changed and I've yet to try one that I wanted to finish.



An MD-80 is great... in first class

Thats great news because I'm in 3F.

I never chose to upgrade for the LAX-DFW redeye flight because I knew at the time of booking that the meal options would be subpar because its a redye. I'm only booked in F for the DFW-EWR portion of the flight which leaves at 7am. The LAX-DFW flight leaves at 12:15 and gets in around 5am. I also knew better to fly redeye option #1 which is a 738 as opposed to redeye option #2 which is a 757 (I hate those seats in Y!) Both leave roughly 15-30 minutes apart.

But except for the ex-TWA S80s don't all the AA S80s have same type seats as the 738s?

Also call me crazy but last month I flew LAX-DFW and peeked at what they were serving for breakfast in F on the 757 and it was pancakes. I'm crossing my fingers for that option on the DFW-EWR flight because they looked delicious!

Yes, they are nearly identical.
