Things I Find Interesting On Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway today for a free American Airlines Admirals Club day pass.


  • My favorite airline, American, is announced new service to Asia.  View From the Wing has all the details, but here’s a summary:
    • New Dallas-Shanghai service scheduled for summer 2014.
    • New Dallas-Hong Kong service on the new 777-300ER also scheduled for summer 2014.
    • They’re ending JFK-Haneda service this fall.
    • They’re expanding service on the new 777-300ER out of Miami.  Both London and Sao Paolo to be added.
    • Best news of all.  Retrofits of the existing 767 and 777 fleets to the new seats they have on the 777-300ER.

The headline here for me is the retrofit.  It’s not that I don’t like flying to Asia.  It’s just that American is behind in the business class seat department.  The older planes have a slanted seat that’s okay, but certainly not great.  The new 777-300ER seat that I got to try out to and from London recently really is a best in class amenity.

Hope you’re flying somewhere fun today!  If not, make sure you’re planning somewhere fun to go.
