American Airlines First Class seating Is 5 Stars

The First Class service on American Airlines flights is Excellent! With so many airlines saving money this one still remains 100% tasteful and upper class. I had dinner on one flight. Served with white wine if I chose that or red wine. Grilled chicken with brown rice. The other flight offered lunch. Both were great meals. First Class seats are not inexpensive but well worth the Money you spend at American Airlines. They also offered us beverages prior to take off. It's nice to know some airlines still know what Class means. I give them 5 Stars!

Chicken & rice with a glass of white wine sounds good to me!

Travelled in international F much have we? Drinks prior to takeoff is absolutely normal, and AA's food is only excellent if you consider the Olive Garden or Cheesecake Factory haute cuisine.

Hmm. One posting to the the OP's name --

Red and white wine and a choice thereof? And a meal? I receive that choice on longhaul flights in economy. That hardly elevates a flight to "upper class".

Grilled chicken and brown rice?? Was there any sauce on offer?

I've had some pretty good meals at 35,000ft too, with SQ down the blunt end though I'm sure the offerings were better than chook and brown rice sounds :-) Choice of wine too (and it wasn't bad) but I'm sure what they were getting up the very pointy end was infinitely better than a bit of chook and some brown rice (at least I hope so LOL).

A friend is flying to the UK next week with Emirates (business class) and they get 5 courses, champagne, wines, a choice of about 15 varieties of tea, coffee and fully flat seats. She's going to email me after they arrive to let me know what it was like (she's a very nervous flyer and the only way her husband could entice her on a long haul flight was if they flew business class).

Were the AA seats fully flat?

I read the post multiple times and cannot figure out whether it's a domestic or international flight? The meals and drinks are offered domestically as well.

Either way, I doubt AA's offer in F would be any better than other airlines. I have flown across the pond in their business class a couple of times and it was light years away from BA's Club World flying the same routes.
