Do a simple google search and you’ll find it’s one of the more talked about transcon services between LAX/SFO and JFK. Our turn at this still-shiny bird is finally here. See what’s in first and read about how we made ourselves like the service…
It’s one of those weird mid-merger moments when the plane says “American” on the outside but it’s all US Airways inside. We’ll jump to calling it American Airlines A321 and show you exit seat 23A, an exit row upgrade, in our video and text reviews.
At post time, it’s still officially a US Airways plane but we’re jumping ahead a handful of months and calling it an American Airlines A320…because it will be. Check out our review of exit row 11 here…before they put slimmer seats in.
Our first trip in both American Main Cabin Extra and aboard the airline’s A321T made the most of almost every nickel and dime in our pockets. Pay per meal, booze, headphones and entertainment ruled the day. Here I’ll tell you what was worth it and what we skipped.
