First Time On First! AA To LGA...a Roundabout Way!

Hello, here is my fourth installment of my summer 2012 trips. This one is from FSM to LGA, for a vacation in Cape Cod, MA. We (my dad and I) flew in to LGA to meet up with relatives who live in NY, and we drove up to Cape Cod the next day.

A few months earlier, we had been looking at tickets for this vacation. We wanted to use miles, and we noticed that economy was being sold for 17,500 miles, while First/Business was 30,000. We found it very affordable, and much to my delight, we booked it. It would by my first time sitting up front, after 15 years of sitting in the back. However, there was a catch: we would have to go through MIA, instead of the regular FSM-DFW-LGA routing. Any normal traveler would have groaned, but this made me even more excited. Another flight, another aircraft, and another experience sitting up front! The return involved a stop in MIA too.

So after all the waiting, the day rolled around......August 3rd, 2012.

Our quaint, beautiful little terminal here at FSM in the wee morning hours.

Yep, KL and AF fly non-stop AMS-FSM and CDG-FSM.....

Much to my delight, we found out our flight (AA 1976) would leave from Terminal D! By far my most favorite terminal in the world.

The bird which will take us to MIA. Here she is, shortly after arriving from ANC.

The closest I'll ever get to an AAdmirals Club   I wish they let Gold Members enter, so that I could!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0054-1.jpg

Decided to have a snack here. I made sure to save room for the breakfast on the plane!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0050-1.jpg

Departing close to our gate. I flew this flight the year before.
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0057-2.jpg

First time seeing an SQ bird since being in their land, SIN, just the month before. I also wrote a TR on that, and the link is on the bottom. I flew FSM-DFW-LHR-SIN-MAA, and LHR-SIN was an SQ A388!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0060-1.jpg

http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0100-2_zpsadb399a4.jpg

We started to taxi, and we soon crossed the bridge that goes over International Parkway:

I then fell asleep in the comfortable First Class seat. I woke up shortly before touchdown in MIA.

http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0232-1_zpsaf125c69.jpg

Rainy day here in MIA. We then found out that our flight to LGA was delayed, and in fact the airport had a ground stop for about 45 minutes due to Thunderstorms!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0242-1_zps325fae16.jpg

AA....please don't change your livery.

Got a delicious Cuban Coffee here at Cafe Versailles
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0254-1_zps64a62118.jpg

Doesn't look exactly glamorous, but it was absolutely delicious.
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0258-1_zpsfee52e92.jpg

There was lightning everywhere. So I decided to place my camera on a railing, and set it to an ultra low shutter speed and ISO 100. After about 30 shots, I was rewarded.

Beautiful AB A330 arriving from Berlin, I'm guessing.

Another AA 763

Walking through Terminal D at MIA. There was a ground stop, so there was no aircraft movements at the time.

Then we decided to stop for sushi at Sushi Maki.

We had the tacos and the dragon roll
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0457-1_zps0544a5bf.jpg
They were.....fantastic
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0456_zps25818ee4.jpg

I ate slightly too much, and my stomach felt a little weird for a while. But it got better after some Terminal D walking.

View from the window at Sushi Maki

First time seeing this beauty up close.

I was overjoyed to see this majesty roar by!

http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0619-1_zpsad14bd3e.jpg

We soon took off. Cool Avianca jets and a LAN, with a Star Alliance plane. What airline could that be?
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0626_zpsf70d874e.jpg

Cool football field/track, and the baseball field above it.

Then we got to see downtown MIA!

The American Airlines Arena, where the Miami Heat play their home games. They won the NBA championship two months earlier, and I woke at 6:30 am in India to watch it live! The championship Finally satisfied LeBron....

Warm nuts and ginger ale. (I ate some of them already)
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0650_zpsae4157cc.jpg

Then what AA calls a "Snack"! In my opinion, a full-fledged lunch: a cheese quesedilla. In one word...fantastic!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0651_zps51293622.jpg

Free flight tracking on Gogo Inflight Internet. (I had an ancient iPod....thankfully later on I got an iPhone)!

Gorgeous skies:

Can someone please tell me what airport this is?
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0676_zps09d0fee6.jpg

And then....my favorite part about landing in LGA. The view of the Big Apple!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0697-1_zpseee87d18.jpg

Freedom Tower. Sure looks 1,776 feet tall!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0699_zps1a549e96.jpg

The best seats in the house. Yankee Stadium, when they beat the Mariners 6-3. Sipping a drink, relaxing in a large seat, just ate a hot meal.....and watching a ball game. All for free!  http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0735_zpsb8bfd548.jpg

Gorgeous sunset over the best city on earth moments before touchdown.
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0741_zpsb386dbe3.jpg

Now I can see why the passengers on US 1549 thought that they were going to land back at LGA.....

Very blurry, but here's "The Donald's" plane. (Ugh). Back from NBO from interviewing the nurses that tended to President Obama when he was born....  http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0750_zps8a6a636b.jpg

After disembarking here in NYC!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0760-1_zpsec0496bc.jpg

So many flights! Amazing!
http://i1144.photobucket.com/albums/o484/kann123air/DSC_0762-1_zps3bf96206.jpg

AA in First Class is amazing. I know that back in Economy it isn't the best, but all I know that up front the treatment is amazing. Referring to a full-fledged meal as a "Snack", hot towels in domestic flights.....nothing that I have gone through matches it. Well done AA.

I will have a report soon on the return: LGA-MIA-DFW-FSM, again in wonderful First Class!

Thanks for reading!

Nice trip report! I myself have never flown AA, despite having flown almost all of the other major US carriers, so its always fun to see what AAs service and cabin is like. Also, very lucky with the gate in MIA (and the time of your flight) its rare to see such variety at one time.

Much enjoyed! Well done on the trip report. Having not flown myself in 9 months and being once accustomed to nonreving in first class quite frequently, I miss it greatly. Reading your report though almost made me feel like I went on that trip myself. Great photos! Looking forward to reading more!

Good report!

AA does have a pretty good domestic F product. When I flew them back in July of 2011, I flew from MSP-DFW-RDU all in F. Really good service, and good food!

Thanks for sharing,

Matthew (767747)

Nice report

Quoting kann123air (Thread starter):
The American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks

Has been pointed out already but not even close! That's Dallas Cowboys stadium aka Jerryworld. The Cowboys and Rangers play in Arlington (which is why you can see those ballparks right by DFW) - the Mavs play in downtown Dallas.

Would have to say 30K (roundtrip?) is quite a good deal for this domestic trip in F. Meals look good too, if not a little greasy, but then again you're on vacation so who cares

The American Airlines Arena, where the Miami Heat play their home games. They won the NBA championship two months earlier, and I woke at 6:30 am in India to watch it live! The championship Finally satisfied LeBron....

Ugh - what a joke. The heat make me sick. GO THUNDER!!! We better get 'em back this year ... (assuming the nba will actually have impartial refs this time)

Thanks for posting!

Great TR. Always enjoy seeing TR with stops in MIA.
How did you like Concourse D? Did you take the skytrain at all. There are some great views up there.

I can see how you made the mistake. Cowboys Stadium is HUGE though.

Two beautiful airlines....I've never heard of either one of them.


Aerosur is no longer with us. Skylease is a common sight at MIA. Lots of cargo flights to South America.

Quoting kann123air (Thread starter):
with a Star Alliance plane. What airline could that be?


Probably the Day Light time TAM flight from GRU. Could be Swiss but that is the gate TAM usually uses in the afternoon.

My favorite place in the world

A normal afternoon at MIA besides for the USAF plane. That was the only rare thing at MIA there.

They can make you sick but they are certainly no joke. You as a Thunder fan should know this 
Heat vs. Thunder is looking like a decent bet again for the finals. We shall see.

Beautiful AB A330 arriving from Berlin, I'm guessing.


More likely from DUS. TXL is only twice a week.

Quoting kann123air (Thread starter):
That Suriname Airways S80 looks in GREAT condition.....


Lots of heavy maintenance ops at MIA.

Thanks for sharing your excellent routing.

Dramatic pictures in Miami. The food looks good, but it really caters american standard I believe, not sure how some Asian people i.e. would react when they're served such a "Quesadilla"   I would like it though.
