The pillow cases were white with the same International Flagship logo in grey. No duvets back then.

Yes, the larger blue menus are from IFS First Class, the smaller silver one is business class. Looking at the items served, and the languages they’re in, these were used for the European flights at the time. Any menu from that period that has sevruga caviar will be first class. Those were the days! I also forgot to mention, as it all comes back to me, the 747SP was also used briefly on JFK-BRU in the winter months of 1991-92, when the flights weren’t always daily. I think BRU was something like 4 days a week, and then one of the two daily flights that were flown by the 747SP to LHR was operated with a 763 or 762. It was a long time ago, hard to believe it has been 29 years!

The same menu covers were used for the Tokyo service, but of course the inside was completely different, there was a choice of Western meals or Japanese meals. When you enter a search in eBay, just put in something like “American Airlines Syracuse China,” or “American Airlines menu,” and things turn up. They’re not always what you’re looking for, you have to keep looking. I’m a collector of certain AA memorabilia and it’s always an ongoing process. It takes years. I never took anything off the plane, but I now have 2 full sets of the Swid Powell business class china from the early ‘90s. It took me a long time to find every piece. That was my favorite china that we’ve had.
