That's good news. But if I fly JFK
, I would rather pick the Airbus A300 because I know that one will be gone much sooner than the 777 will be, and I haven't flown in one for a long time. I've only flown twice on those with American in my life. It's much harder to get an A300 (unless you live in MIA
) than it is to get a 777. I would choose the A300 over any Boeing type if I fly on that route.
Yes, that flight will be sold as two-class service like it has always been on the DFW
flight. I flew on a Boeing 777 five years ago, just when the type was introduced at American, from DFW
and I had a business class seat for the price of coach and without even using upgrades! You are seated in a business class seat but you are treated the same way as if you were seated in the coach cabin.
My understanding is that there are now 4 domestic routes on the 777:
and now MIA
I'm wondering why they don't introduce a 3-Class 777 on the JFK
flight, that flight used to be flown with the DC-10 for many years, so why not introducing the 777? Out of the 8 daily JFK
flights which are 767-200's, one or two should be a 777 because the Boeing 777 is the flagship aircraft at American Airlines and also because JFK
sees high load factors, a route flown mostly by business men. The 3-Class 777 should be scheduled on the red-eye LAX
