American Airlines released photos and a promotional video of their new A321’s (due in 2013) and 777-300 ER aircraft due in service later this year. The photos and videos highlight a long overdue upgrade to the hard product in all three cabins. The A321’s promise three class service on all transcontinental flights including entertainment at every seat, wifi, and relatively large first and business class cabins for a single aisle aircraft. Watch the video below for more details on both aircraft.
Business class will finally get a fully flat bed product after years of dealing with the angled lie flat seats on the current fleet. First class remains on the transcon aircraft from which Alec Baldwin has a more private area to use his cell phone. All in all these look like great changes if American comes out of bankruptcy protection as a stand alone carrier. Who knows what will happen to these aircraft orders if they merge with another carrier.
