[Flight Information]
✈ Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER
✈ Airline: American Airlines
✈ Registration: N734AR
✈ Date: Late July 2019
✈ Flight Time: 10 Hours & 30 Minutes
✈ From: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
✈ To: Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND)

Intro:
American Airlines' Flagship Business Class on their Boeing 777-300ER is a fantastic way to travel. The Business Class utilizes the Zodiac Cirrus seat which is also found on Cathay Pacific's A350s, 777-300s, A330s, and more. In my opinion, this Flagship Business Class seat and product may be better than some of American Airlines' Flagship First Class products also found on their Boeing 777-300ER.

- After arriving in LAX from DFW, we connected toward Tokyo Haneda.
- Our aircraft was N734AR, a 777-300ER delivered to American in October 2015.
- Soon we boarded and headed into the aircraft through the second door.
- American's Flagship Business Class on the 777-300ER consists of 52 seats arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration.
- Overall, the seat is well-designed and comfortable.
- The FA's came around to serve a pre-departure drink and we departed the gate.
- The takeoff was interesting as the end of the runway at LAX had some dense low clouds.
- About an hour or so after takeoff, the meal was served.
- This began with a choice of drink and warm nuts, followed by the amazing Japanese Meal AA offers in partnership with JAL.
- This meal was CRAZY beautiful and delicious. Fantastic job by American for offering this product.
- Following the main course was the dessert, a Passion Fruit Tart, which was a bit dry but still tasty.
- I converted my seat into the lie-flat bed and got a few hours of sleep.
- When I woke up, I went into the galley to check out the mid-flight snacks. I chose a caramel vanilla waffle and some olive/tomato dish.
- About an hour and thirty before landing, the flight attendants turned on the cabin lights to wake passengers for the pre-arrival meal.
- I had a red pepper strata which wasn't too bad.
- Shortly we descended and arrived into Tokyo Haneda.

Overall, this was a great experience. The food was amazing, the seat's private and comfortable. American offers a truly competitive Business Class product.

Great report. Surprised to hear the catering was that good. I've never found American's premium catering to be good. Curious if they stock the food from the same preparation kitchen as JAL at LAX for the HND service.
