Time to dispel some of the mistruths that are frequent on A.net...
's 757s, although now with standard legroom (standard as in no different than any other airline, still better than charters) have video and music programming. So you won't be bored from DFW
as suggested above. Your flight to Orlando from take-off to touchdown should not exceed 2.5 hours, probably will be a little less. And if it's of any interest, you'll get to take a shortcut by flying over the Gulf of Mexico.
does not offer complimentary drinks in coach class anymore, however, they do offer free headsets (from Europe). On AA
domestic flights, AA
headsets can be purchased for $2, not $5 as stated above, and are yours to keep. It is simply a convenience for those who don't have their own headset. You can bring yours with you from the LGW
flight and keep it the whole trip, or, you can use your own.
For the poster regarding ORD
currently serves a light meal, the "Bistro" in coach between those two cities. However, starting next month Bistros are being cut on over 100 flights, and my guess is that'll be one of them. The flight between ORD
should not take more than 3.5 hours. There's a large food court between the H and K concourses in ORD
so you'll have plenty of options to get some food you might actually enjoy.
(A side note to the Bistro being cut on over a 100 flights... the company is cutting them to help pay for increased meal flights in f-class... to compete with UA
's new policy. The company stated the Bistro never met customer expectations and therefore will be cut from all but the longest of domestic (non-transcon) routes. The company is right, they never did meet customer expectations (does any airline meal/snack?); however, I bet there will be no shortage of complaints when they go.)
Hope you enjoy AA
. It's as good as those who say it is, and not as bad as those who say it's bad.
