Premium Class

American has elevated the onboard customer experience in premium class cabins on international flights. 

This new premium inflight experience has been introduced on all international 777-200ER, 767-300ER, and 757 aircraft flying in Europe, Asia, and Latin America premium haul markets, in addition to the 777-300ER aircraft that began flying in early 2013.

Customers traveling in American’s Business Class cabin onboard all international flights operated by Boeing 777s and 767-300s, in addition to select flights to and from Europe operated by Boeing 757s, can enjoy a premium duvet and pillow, slippers, and amenity kit with Akhassa® cosmetics.

American continues to bring you the latest entertainment options by being the first domestic airline to offer complimentary use of a branded tablet for premium class entertainment. The innovative Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android platform tablet, featuring a 10.1-inch screen, enables a customized viewing experience on select transcontinental and international flights.

First Class customers traveling internationally onboard Boeing 777s receive a quilted bed topper — custom-designed to fit American’s popular Flagship Suite swivel seat — pajamas and slippers as part of the airline’s turndown service. The suite of amenities include a lightweight day blanket, new premium duvet and pillow, and an amenity kit — that doubles as a tablet case — containing Dermalogica® skin care products and other travel necessities.

American also introduced fully lie-flat seats in First and Business Class beginning with the new Boeing 777-300ER in 2013 and will continue to roll out installation across its international dual-aisle aircraft. These new seats offer added comfort and conveniences such as aisle access from every seat. First and Business Class customers will also enjoy several other features American is adding to international dual-aisle planes, including:

• International Wi-Fi
• In-seat entertainment on an HD-capable touch-screen monitor with access to:
   –  More than 700 hours of on-demand audio and video entertainment
   – Up to 250 movies, 180 TV shows, 350 audio selections, and 30 games
• 110v universal AC power outlets and USB jacks at every seat
• Seats with individual tray tables featuring a larger work surface
• A premium handset to serve as a remote

American now offers a variety of enhanced experiences for premium customers, including more food and beverage choices. Customers can partake of a soup option and a customizable pasta entrée, an expanded signature sundae cart, a breakfast card for First Class customers, bread options, and a pre-landing sweet treat and spa water for First Class customers. Business Class customers also enjoy an updated dessert service.

When First Class customers order an inflight wine sampling, they will receive a tasting card to assist in their selections. All offerings are specially chosen for the flight by American’s wine consultant, Ken Chase. 

American is the first of any U.S. airline to offer a refreshment bar to premium class customers, now available on American’s 777-300 planes. At the walk-up bar, travelers can pick from a selection of sweet and savory snacks, available anytime between meal services. First and Business Class customers traveling internationally can also enjoy complimentary beer and wine options, with all wines specially chosen by Chase.

While in flight, First and Business Class customers can enjoy their new menu items served on updated, more modern china, with new flatware and upgraded linens. In addition, First Class customers receive a textured placemat, napkin ring, accent water glass, and amuse-bouche.
