Carlos Melia's latest from his travels in Buenos Aires, Argentina:
"Back in New York City after and amazing month an a half in Brazil and Argentina. The way back, well on board First Class non-stop American Airlines flight from Buenos Aires to New York City (approx. 10 hours and 30 minutes ). Yes everyone, after an exhausting week planning a Gay Wedding in Buenos Aires, I got on my almost flat bed seat, jump into my AA pijamas, enjoyed a few glasses of White Wine and Champagne, caught up with movies and slept the whole way through to wake up over a great breakfast at JFK.
That seats and entertainment system is a bit old and outdated onboard International American Airlines flights ? yes I keep hearing that a lot, and I must say that although extremely comfortable, I agree. But GREAT news, this is all about to change… American Airlines announced changes to its spring and summer schedules, first over airline’s presence in Brazil. Beginning in December, American’s route between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Sao Paulo(GRU) will operate with the new state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300ER. The new aircraft is designed to enhance the customer experience and includes fully lie-flat First and Business Class seats, plus seating plans that will allow American to offer a premium product in the Main Cabin and Wi-Fi capability to keep customers connected while traveling internationally. The Business Class cabin be outfitted with fully lie flat seats – all with aisle access. The First Class cabin will feature an updated and enhanced version of American’s Flagship Suite seats. Unique mood lighting and a dramatic archway and ceiling treatment create a feeling of spaciousness."
