American Airlines 777-300ER: Business Class Photos

Last week, before the inaugural flight, I was able to tour the plane and take some photos.  I thought I had several of the Business Class section, but when I looked through my photo library I realized that I didn’t have as many as I thought I did, so I borrowed a few from friend, and fellow blogger, Eloy of the Mestre des Milhas blog in Brazil.  He was kind enough to contribute a few shots for today’s post.

Anyway, here’s a photo tour of the new 777-300ER Business Class cabin

52 fully lie-flat Business Class seats, and each of them offers direct aisle access.

Eloy posted a video on his blog that opens with a tour of the Business Class cabin.  It’s in Portuguese, but you still get a good overview the plane.  Here it is:

Another item worth sharing.  Chris Sloan of The Airchive and The Travel Channel’s Airport 24/7 Miami has a great photo of the fully stocked  walk up premium cabin snack bar.  He also posted his complete trip report of the inaugural flight over the weekend (it’s even more detailed the the one I linked to on Friday), and it’s definitely worth checking out.

  1. Thanks for the update! I’m traveling with my wife in business class and am curious if you would recommend we get seats across the aisle from each other or in the middle two seats for communication purposes. Thanks

  2. @ John777 – No divider between the two seats. The seats sit so far back that you don’t really need one.

    @ Chris – There’s no great option. Across the aisle and you have to get up each time you want to talk to your wife. If you sit in the middle section, it’s possible to lean all the way forward and then reach around the middle section to get her attention and then carry a conversation. That might be the best option.

    It’s a good problem to have I guess, but the business class seats are almost too private! 🙂

    @ Eloy – Thanks for the photos!

  3. How will we know which flights have these seats? Im out of dfw and fly mostly to Europe. Are these seats identical to cathay business? Too bad the service wont be the same tho.

    • @ Siso – They are just starting to take delivery of the new 777-300ER. The first route to get them is DFW/GRU. DFW/LHR is next, when AA50 and AA51 get upgraded in early March. Look for more 777-300ERs to get added toward the middle of the year.

      The seats are the same as CX.

  4. When will they start flying out of dfw to europe with these seats? They seem identical to the cathay business. Too bad the service wont be the same .
