Travel from Dallas to Maui (AA)

We are heading out in July - first class - on the above route. Can anybody tell me the state of the seats we can expect? Is it a usual coach style seat or a flat bed? Thanks

You can check here.

If you are on flight 7 the direct then you will be flying the 767-300

First class is "Angle lie flat" which doesn't go all the way flat but does have a nice foot rest.

If you are flying to west coast for a layover you will probably be in a 757. It does lie flat but no foot rest.

That is the flight we took in 2012, long flight, but I remember seeing the folks in first class have a lot more room than we did. A full reclining seat if I recall.

Chris it' reclines about 95% but not totally flat. Made trying to sleep on the flight back a bit of a problem. But compared to coach, our usually mode of travel to Maui, the seats were a dream.

However, the great foot rest is wonderful for a shortie like me.

We had the center two seats on the first row of that flight last year. We enjoyed them a lot. Almost lie flat, but not quiet and the "hood" over the head rest keeps the person behind you from looking at you while you drool in your sleep.
