Trip Report AA First class LAX to NRT

Jump to last reply

This won't be a full blown TR, but more just comments.

Yesterday I flew AA SMF > LAX > NRT. I booked business (paid, not award) and at LAX was upgraded to first. Yippee(!). Well not all that much after all. This was on a 777-200 - I've flown business in a 300 LAX to LHR a few times and it was terrific so I expected amazing. In fact first on the 200 was pretty much equivalent to business in the 300. Lie flats - yes. 1-2-1 configuration - yes. Food options - pretty similar. They did have a 5 course dinner instead of 4 but the starters were not impressive and the salad course was pitiful. the soup course was VERY good though. Bose headsets - yes. (I don't use them since I have Bose noise canceling earbuds). Attentive service - about equal. The only real difference was the pajamas. If I had actually paid for first class (fat chance of that :) - above my pay grade) I'd have been pretty disappointed.

The entertainment options were pretty slim too. My sound didn't work so they gave me a tablet and it had more movies and music options than on the cabin system - though still not great.

Question - if that is 1st on that route, what is business like?
