Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2020

Can someone at AA let someone know that there is an issue with the new Kodiak first class? The first row does not have a USB port like with OASIS. Only a universal power port while all other rows have a USB port too.

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2020

I think I have identified an issue with Kodiak on the 737. Overall all the changes with Kodiak are great. I was very happy. The only issue is that the first row appears to not have a USB port like the others rows do. Before Kodiak, the USB port used to be together with the universal power port under...

You pull back a bit in Seattle, Alaska grows.

There is no blocked seat on the 787 for pilots on the way to Europe. There is only 1 person on break at a time and 2 in the cockpit. 1 person has the entire bunk area just for them. Why would they need a seat in the cabin?

The only airline to serve Athens outside of the New York area and the only airline to have flights from more than 1 US city.
