I have a real quick question. On July 13 I am moving back home, I am flying AA (cough...TWA) from SJC-STL-JAX on AA2934. Personally I would have rather gone through DFW on a real AA bird, but the price was just outrageous for a 7 day advance purchase ticket.

Anyways. I was wondering what the inflight service, seat comfort and STL hub were like in comparison to the real AA (where I would know what to expect.

Thanks in advance.

I've flown both extensively and will agree that there's no difference, except that they don't seem to have run out of TWA napkins yet  Smile

Sllevin-
How would you compare STL's AA interior to DFW's AA interior?

In coach I'm not sure but in F there's a major difference. The catering will be below AA metal standards while the service will be (sometimes way) above AA standards. The metal (if it's an MD-80) will be older and shabbier but the F seats are more comfortable by far. I've also noticed (but can't explain why) that TWA's Slug 80s are much quieter than AA's.

Kanebear--Re: "...TWA's Slug 80's are much quieter than AA's." There's far less whining by the flight attendants!

Bada Bing! But seriously folks...

Sorry, AA guys, couldn't resist. Big grin TC

Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

I see. Thanks. I am assuming that I will get a seat in Economy with 34" pitch, a PTV and a meal without alcohol. Will there be anything different because it's the 25th. I've never flown AA before and am assuming that it isn't as good as Virgin.

STL concourses are a little threadbare and in definate need of an upgrade. The walk from the end of C concourse to end of D is a long one but there are people movers at the end of C and throughout D. I'm assuming you'll be in at least one of those concourses as B gates are primarily AA Connection flights. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat and a pretty decent little food court at the junction of C and D. No need to leave the security area. The northside gates on C concourse gives good views of the runway activity, AA and WN dominate but most of the Majors and Frontier Jet Express fly in here also. Have a good trip!


The best IFE: A window seat and a good book.

Having flown AA christmas day, the FA's were a little bit cheerier and the safety announcement(this was an MD-80, no IFE) was done in the tune of "Twas the night before christmas" and at the end, she was awarded with a bunch of people clapping.

Realizing that this is an international flight, there might be something added, but I wouldn't know.

I've actually not been to STL post-conversion; not by intent but rather by randomness. But pre-conversion, I was never impressed with STL; I thought, like TWA, it was a little long in the tooth.

Do TWA planes still have TWA safety instructions cards in them, or do they have AA safety cards now.

The international flights from DFW, at least to LGW and CDG, had free alcohol in coach. The seating is cramped, but as long as you don't sit in the middle, usualy reserved for infants untill the last moment, the flight should be enjoyable.
