More comfort on the US transcontinental service between Boston Logan and Los Angeles International is being promised next year as American Airlines continues deployment of its new three-class Airbus A321T.
The aircraft is already in service between New York JFK and Los Angeles as well as between JFK and San Francisco International Airport.
American will become the only carrier to offer First Class, below, and Business Class on the BOS-LAX route, with plans to operate twice-daily services from 2 April and passengers lured with fully lie-flat seats and a chef-curated menu, as well as premium wines and amenity kits.
Those travelling in Main Cabin can stay connected with power at every seat, high-speed wi-fi and seatback entertainment, and, as part of American’s collaboration with Zoës Kitchen, Main Cabin passengers can also buy 'light and healthy' menu options.
Network and schedule planning vice-president Vasu Raja said: “The Flagship experience on the A321T continues to win awards for best domestic First Class travel and comfort and convenience for customers.
“By introducing the A321T on two daily flights between important business markets like LAX and BOS, we are delivering on our promise to create a world-class customer experience.”

I remember the dining room in First Class on Pan Am 747\'s but what on earth is a chef-curated menu on an Airbus 321?
