FLIGHT PLAN

The flight pushed back from the gate on time and soon after we were wheels up on runway 16L. The captain took us on a scenic course over Mt. Rainier, providing one of the best aerial views of the mountain I’ve ever seen.

The plane climbed to 35,000 feet and set a course to the south east, trekking through Oregon, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, and finally, Texas.

SEAT COMFORT

First-class seats on American’s new A321s aircraft are manufactured by Zodiac Seats U.S., and arranged in a 2-2- configuration. My seat provided 38” of pitch and was 21” wide. Being a domestic seat, adjustments are limited solely to recline, which is more of a slide-forward motion than pivot backward. While I found it very comfortable, it is worth noting that pitch is several inches less than on the carrier’s Boeing 737 fleet.

The meal and drink tables both fold out of the arm rest, while a set of power and USB ports keep devices charged and operating.

For entertainment the seat offers a large, 12.1” high-definition touchscreen display. It can also be controlled by a tethered remote, which stows in the armrest.

The in-flight entertainment is powered by Thales’ latest audio-visual on demand system, the i5000. American offers a wide and impressive selection of audio, movies, and TV. I watched most of “The Lego Movie,” undoubtedly a guilty pleasure.
