American Airlines to Debut New Flagship Suite, Continue Three-Class Service
American Airlines will unveil a new first-class Flagship Suite when it takes delivery of 10 new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft during 2012 and 2013. London is scheduled to be the first destination using the new aircraft.
The new Flagship Suite will provide a six-foot, eight-inch bed with armrests that drop down to expand the sleeping surface. Each suite will have a swivel seat, two AC outlets, a USB outlet, a 17″ display with touchscreen remote, two large tray tables, and a privacy divider. A bar with snacks and refreshments will be available to passengers in the first- and business-class cabins.
Wi-Fi will be available in all three classes aboard the new 777-300ER on international routes. Other improvements include AC power outlets at all seats, fully-flat seats with 180-degree recline in business class, all with direct aisle access, and a premium seat with more legroom in the front section of the economy-class cabin.
