DFW to OGG First Class

I am looking at this flight for next summer. Is the 767 still going to be the angled lie flat on this route going forward? Is there any AVOD? I presume the service is just domestic F? Thanks for any help.

AVOD? LOL please......AA is too cheap to install in-seat AVOD on this plane/route....so you'll have to wait to get a cheesy/clunky tablet and then give it back an hour before landing.....don't expect anything too great and you'll be fine.

Yep just domestic F service. Most likely the same old angled flat 767.
Pics from last week's HNL-DFW flight.

OMG, no kidding! You'll long for the old 767.

Thanks for the pics. Looks pretty darn old, but serviceable.

My parents got switched to DFW >> HNL, Flight #5! This is supposedly AA's best plane (767-300) to fly to Hawaii. Correct?

When you try to book SAAver award ticket, AA only releases 1 seat. I told my parents they are VERY lucky to get switched from PHX >> HNL on US Air to American Airlines DFW >> HNL!

Yes, First Class in AA's 767 is much better than the 757. I do not know about the previous USAir planes. I do not agree with your statement that only one seat is released at a time, but the 767 flight from DFW is a very tough First Saver award to get to OGG. Even the upgrade award is tough.

I read the trip report. Sad how there are no more smoothies eastbound (although in my experience the crew wouldn't offer them unless you asked), and the dessert cart was not the 3-tiered trolley. Sigh. Did the FAs at least wear the festive Hawaiian uniform accessories?

Slightly off topic, but do you guys like it when we wear festive accessories on the island trips?

skylady, I do. Especially on the longer flights - helps me realize I am now on vacation when I get on the plane!

That's a great question.

For me, if they're accompanied by a seemingly genuine level of 'aloha' spirit, then yes, absolutely. I love that, actually.

If they're accompanied by a disinterested, 'I'd rather not be here, but what is it you wanted, again?' kinda spirit -- then no. With that, I find the festive accessories an insult to the culture.

In that case, I tend to have more disdain for the apathetic service than I'd normally have on some nondescript mainland flight.

I love it! It always makes for a more festive atmosphere during boarding.

Meh. Living in Phoenix, I'd rather fly HA, even if it means a connection in HNL(which is usually pretty painless....).
