Anerican Airlines international flights

Jump to last reply

This was the 2nd time we ended up with these old planes.

Did it get us there safely? Yes.
Bad parts:
Drop down TV in the middle rows with 1 movie at a time, some inapprpriate for kids
2 of our 3 seat headsets didn't work so couldn't watch anywway
Very uncomfortable seats
Lack of rest rooms so always a line

Our fault for enduring this again. When our flights were booked through tour group they were on British Air at top dollar ($1,500 each rd. trip)

British air going from Chicago to London was excellent with the individual seat monitors we are used to having with 50 movies, etc. and comfortable seats. The 8+ hours went by quickly.

Returning from Paris to Chicago the British Air flight was on American. After the last time this happened we vowed to never fly on one of those oldies again.
The 9+ hours were very uncomfortable.

Someone told us that American now had new up tp date planes so we didn't question it.
BIG MISTAKE---we should have noticed that it was an old 767.

Just a warning to check out the type of plane you are flying on. If we had chosen a cheaper flight with connections involved we would have expected something like this old, crappy plane, but we paid more for a direct flight and expected better.

Again, our fault for not checking further and trusting Globus Tours to get us a decent flight. We fly to Europe every year and should know better.
