New seatmaps: Still some seats on American’s inaugural A321-Transcon flights

Friday I mentioned that American was planning to add their new A321-Transon JFK/LAX flights to the schedule. It happened, and the new flights and seatmaps started showing up at AA.com yesterday.

Even though the 777-300ER is an amazing plane, it’s the A321-T that really gets me excited: I find myself traveling from coast to coast far more frequently than I travel to Europe.

I can’t wait for my first six and a half hour transcontinental flight enjoying Flagship meal service, and watching movies on the personal in-seat entertainment screen while stretched out in a fully lie-flat seat!

JFK to LAX

The inaugural January 7, 2014 flight from JFK to LAX still has availability in First and Business Class. So far, no confirmable upgrade space to First or Business, or low level MileSAAver awards. Lots of seats in the Main Cabin though.

Here’s a look at the two A321-T JFK to LAX flights:

AA133 and AA 181 JFK to LAX

 

And here’s how the seat map looks (as of this morning) for that first flight from JFK on AA133.

LAX to JFK

Here are the two new A321-T flights from LAX to JFK. One of them is an overnight flight, so the fully lie flat seats in the First and Business Class cabins will be a big enhancement.

AA118 LAX to JFK

AA10 LAX to JFK

First Class on the inaugural LAX to JFK flight looks to be sold out already! Though I haven’t heard anything yet about AA’s plans for an inaugural celebration, it’s possible that the seats are blocked for a launch event (keep you posted).

The other A321-T, the red eye, still has several seats open. No upgrade availability on either flight yet.

Here’s the seatmap for the inaugural LAX to JFK flight.

I do have some travel to Los Angeles coming up in January, now I just need to find a reason to be in New York so that I can combine the trips  back to back for some A321-Transcon AA geekiness!
