American Airlines from Phoenix to Lihue

We are to fly out of Phoenix to Lihue in May and upgraded to first class both directions. Does anyone have information on first class seats and also meals for this flight? Also have seen some mention of mugs you can purchase at the Marriott Beach Resort(not condos) and get free refills of all drinks so would also appreciate information about that program as well as any other information about this resort. Have reserved an Ocean View room and plan to enjoy the beach area. What would the best Ocean View room building or area to request?

Seatguru has seat info.

You'll need to know which type plane you'll be flying.

.

Meal info should be online on the AA website.

Last I heard, the mugs were still available. I think there are details on the website.

For your American Airlines flight, it appears you can go to following website and make selection of meal from what offered beginning 30 days (and up to 24 hours) before you depart.

I almost created this thread last week! After reading up on seatguru and a few other travel blogs, I think we're going to be semi-disappointed in the flight. I almost cancelled the tickets and just bought cheaper ones, but am going to keep them because I got a great deal.

Please come back and update this thread after you're able to select your meal(s). I'm curious to see what kind of options we have as well, but my flight isn't until August.

You might not be disappointed, as I believe American has started scheduling their 757-200 international business class cabin configuration on the non-stop Hawaii flights out of PHX. That would be a generous pitch of 58-60" and either a recliner seat with leg/foot rest or an angled lie flat seat. Check the American website seat map to see what aircraft type is scheduled for your flight.

Kauai Marriott is a beautiful, huge resort. Large pool and patio. Lovely grass lawn and beach front. Plenty of loungers. Several restaurants on site, including Dukes. Have fun!

Flew the PHX-LIH 757-200 last fall in first class. Very small 1st class cabin, 12 seats, I think. They weren't the greatest 1st class seats i've ever been in. No footrest, no lie-flat seats.

That being said, flying direct to LIH was nice, as was getting in at around 2:00 pm. No layover in HNL was also nice.

Yes, this more recent scheduling of a more roomy "international" first class cabin with AA's 757-200's just started after the first of the year.

If your flight attendant is Robin Watkins, you will have a wonderful flight.

I still have a couple of their coffee mugs ( the plastic travel type ). The last time I stayed there this deal was for coffee. Buy their mug and the coffee is on them. I don't remember it being for ALL drinks but I could be wrong.

The Fill up mug cost is $35 for coffee and soft drinks. Coffee was $5 and u could get one free refill. If you are going to be here for several days 5-7 probably a deal.
