I will be flying DCA
(1st Class) in March. However, my MIA
legs are actually termed "Business," even though it is a two-class 757. I have had friends who have flown this "Business" class to ACA
as well, and they say the seating is about the same as "First," the meal service may be a bit different.
My question: why is this termed "Business" instead of "First?" I've heard that some Latin American countries tax "First Class" differently due to its connotations, and that since it is a leisure destination, the service may be lower and AA
doesn't want passengers to think that this exemplifies their "First Class" service. Anyone know the scoop? I seriously doubt enough true business traffic on these routes to CUN
to justify a Business cabin!
