ARRIVAL

Once again, business-class passengers were asked to lower their aisle-side armrests prior to landing DSC_0852(this is not required in first class since the seats are different and there is more room to enter and exit the pods).

The eight minutes ahead of schedule early morning landing was extremely smooth and greeted by polite applause.  As we taxied to the gate, the new American Airlines 777-300ER received a water cannon salute from the airport’s fire department.

Soon we were at the gate and the lines at the passport control checkpoint were very short.  Customs was equally fast as I used the “nothing to declare” line.

BOTTOM LINE

Especially when it comes to long flights, and this flight was over nine hours in the air, I look at comfort and service but my main measure is how much sleep I am able to get.  By this measure alone, the new business-class seats in the 777-300ER deserve the highest rating possible as I was able to get a good night’s sleep and slept for over six hours.  Once you add in the aircraft’s amenities and the excellent service (how often are your beverages poured by the airline’s CEO?) you have the making of something great.  The new aircraft is the launch vehicle for American’s new first- and business-class cabins and will start to fly American’s London-Heathrow routes next month from both Dallas and New York and I can hardly wait to try it on that route.
