Best American Domestic First Class?

Sat Jun 17, 2006 1:17 am

Hello everyone- I was just wondering out of general interest what (in your view) is the best U.S domestic F product out there ?

Dived in 2 catagorys:
1st catagory is best narrow-body domestic F product
2Nd catagroy is best Wide-body domestic F product
(767/A330 is w/b, 757 in international config is w/b, domestic config is counted as as narrow-body in this thread)

The a sub catagory in terms of:

a) Seat-best recline, most legroom, widest seat etc
b) Catering- Best food, best hot breakfast etc
c) Service- Overall service
d) Overall

FOR EXAMPLE:

1) Best domestic widebody F for.....
a) recline-UA, legroom UA, seat width AA
b) catering- hot -AA cold-AA ,breakfast-UA because they serve a fully cooked breakast
c) Service-CO
d) Overall-AA

2) Best domestic narrowbody F for:
then it's the same


Thanks in advance

Best domestic narrowbody F in order:
1.) CO
2.) DL
3.) YX - not really first class but darn close
4.) HP
5.) AA
6.) FL - they may not have a lounge but once airborn they are better than UA even

Best domestic WB F:
1.) DL - 763 & 764
2.) CO
3.) AA - not much choice after this really
4.) UA

of the ones that I have flown. Overall

1) Northwest- I got more food on a MSP-DEN flight listed as a "snack" then I did on Delta's Dinner and UA's Dinner flights, that MSP-DEN flight consisted of Asian chicken salad, roll, side salad (greens), key lime pie, and drink. All were good sized portions.

2) Delta-

3) United-

Delta and United were pretty close, but I got an extra thing on Delta. NW atleast still gives you real glass and metal utinsels.

I really like the AS first product. It's not the most flashy product in the sky, but for what you get for the money paid, I really like it. The seats are comfortable and the service is top notch.

I also really like Delta's first class / business elite, especially on their transatlantic 777's.

In my opinion, the majority of them are pretty much the same. The network carriers pretty much offer the same thing with only small differences. I've flown UA, AA, CO and AS in domestic first class recently and there wasn't a noticeable difference. The real differences between the airlines are on international flights.

However there are some special flights. I'd be eager to take an internationally configured plane. UA, AA, DL, and CO all operate a decent number of international planes mostly between their hubs. Business class with 55 inches of pitch and a PTV is nice for a 3 hour flight. Also United's Premium Service is supposed to be really good.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
