American Airlines launched a new 777 business class product that’s supposed to be awesome not too long ago. I haven’t had the opportunity to experience it yet, but they’re supposed to be great. View From the Wing (probably the most knowledgable/experienced person on this subject) thinks it’s the best seat to fly in across the Atlantic.
So, why not fly it for a couple hundred bucks instead of thousands?
These planes aren’t the type you’re going to find on your typical flight in the domestic US. This is one of those scheduling quirks that you don’t see often. But on August 4th, American is flying a brand spanking new 777 from San Diego to JFK.
And, the business class cabin is loaded as coach seating. As of the writing of this post, business class can be had for $233 one-way on this flight. Look at all those business class seats available for an elite to select with their coach ticket.
Not too shabby to try out the new product on a transcontinental flight.
