Are you sure you're not on a 772? My understanding is that all AA flights to / from LHR are flown with 772s.

If you're flying LAX-LHR nonstop, you'll be on a 777, not a 767-200. If you go via JFK, you'll fly on a 767-200 for the LAX-JFK leg and a 777 for the JFK-LHR flight. Some information about Business Class, but short on many pictures, can be found here.

You will very, very definitely not be flying a 762.

LAX-LHR on a 762

This route is flown by a 772, not a 762. There are pictures of the J-class cabin in the database. Here's one of them:

The above photo shows the original j-class layout for the pacific version of the 772 with 56 seats. Now the cabin has been standardized on all 772s with 35 j-class seats.

Guys, calm down, I'm sure it was as simple typo. 772, not the 762. It happens to the best of us!  yes 

I was in Biz on #137 this past June. Excellent service, great flight. I got some photos, but am at the ramp right now. Here is one I pulled off the Anet site.



Photo of the seat.



Enjoy your flight.  airplane

Is LAX-LHR really AA's flagship service? And what exactly does a flagship service mean?

Refers to the branding AA uses on their international service... enhanced from domestic, for example... and not a "flagship route" an airline flies as you will see in other threads.

So basically all of AA's international services are branded as Flagship routes?

AA's Flagship Service is the airline's most premium service, only available on three cabin aircraft. The 777 and 762 are both three cabin, but F is different on them. On the 762, it is a "domesticized" version of the international service. However, all of the 762s are getting full interior upgrades in all classes, including on-demand video, new seats, and side and over head panels.
On the 777, F is a fully lie flat seat with semi on demand video, tons of personal space, and upgraded meal service. While it isn’t the same as EK, SQ, or CX F service, it is still very nice. At the moment there are still a few 777 in the Pacific seats, which aren’t the pod seats, but they are still nice and do lie completely flat. Although, if you can take a flight without being at the window, try it on this flight, its hard to reach the isle if your in the window and the person next to you is sleeping.

In a nut shell: Flagship Service is AA's best attempt at its best service.

A tip for the J seat... They aren’t lie flat on most aircraft yet, so once you get the set reclined and all the foot rest gadgets extended, put something under the foot rest. Your carry on luggage will work nicely to elevate the seat, it makes a world of difference.

Really good point! I fly this route all the time, and the service is really quite good! I suggest 11a-Have a nice flight!

AA's 'Flagship Service' is plain and simple marketing... it doesn't refer to any specific cabin and has several market specific variations... JDAirCEO put it very well... it is AA's best attempt at its best service and flight attendants are required to be qualified in it which in the past was always classes you had to attend but some of it is now online...

American Flagship Service or AFS - offered on B762s between JFK-LAX and JFK-SFO (3 classes of service)
International Flagship Service or IFS - offered on B763s and B772s to Europe and South America (2 / 3 classes of service)
Asia International Flagship Service or AIFS - offered on B772s to Tokyo and Shanghai

AA A300 F or J depending the route is essentially domestic first class service. The seats on the refurbished planes are typical domestic first seats. These planes are for high density domestic and Carrbiean shorter routes. I believe some of the longer Central America and South America zone one routes have some upgraded meal service.
Either way, its much better than coach on this aircraft.

And a fairly new name for international service is IPS, or International Premium Service, used to distinguish AA's two-class international service on 763s. Though the 763s only have a two-class configuration -- business and coach -- the business class service is of higher quality than what you'd receive in business class on a 777, but not quite first class, hence the name differentiation.

To recap:

Three class domestic service: American Flagship Service (AFS)
Three class international service: International Flagship Service (IFS)
Two class international service: International Premium Service (IPS)
Three class Asia service: Asia International Flagship Service (AIFS)
