TBS's AAmerican Adventure in June;

Hi,

I will be doing the following flights in June ( all in F),

19th June AA 1505 MCO-DFW ( dep 1039 arr 1218) B757
19th June AA 2011 DFW-LAS ( dep 1419 arr 1503) B757
21st June AA 1182 LAS-LAX ( dep 0718 arr 0820) MD80
21st June AA 283 LAX-HNL ( dep 1245 arr 1521) B763
30th June AA 270 HNL-LAX ( dep 0820 arr 1634) B757
1st July AA 244 LAX-MCO ( dep 0715 arr 1508) B757

All on YUP fares

I assume there is no Admirals Clubs in MCO/LAS and HNL ( I have BA silver/ O/W Sapphire)

At least I managed to get one leg on the B763 as the B757 is just standard F pitch (38-40inches) i think.

I assume I will get
(a) Fed- to a degree on the transcons- better food on the HNL legs
(b) Pillows & Blankets on most flights
(c) IFE ( overhead screens) on most flights apart from the MD80
(d) Access to Elite/First class security at most airports- I have not seen one at MCO?

If any FT'ers are on those flights and would like to meet , feel free to PM me.

Regards ( and Happy Memorial Day)

a) AA1505 snack, AA2011 snack, AA1182 probably nothing, AA283 real domestic F meal, AA270 real domestic F meal, AA244 real domestic F meal
b) probably not on the first three flights
c) yup
d) MCO haven't seen one or read of one either, LAS yes, HNL dunno, LAX yes. Also see this post.

Have a great trip!

Sami

If you'd like to know what to expect, look under the Trip reports section of CharlesMD.com and then the Napali Coast TR. The catering LAX-HNL is largely similar to DFW/ORD-HNL albeit without the pre-arrival snack. And credit those tier points to BA!

Blankets yes, but don't count on pilllows...they are gone on all but international flights. Not sure about Hawaii.

TBS, could we ask the indelicate question of what you paid for this Gold achieving odyssey?

Hi apudme,

Yes you can....

Seriously,

For those flights the total cost was about 1000.

( the fare just from the west coast to HNL was about 800/900).

The above routing should earn 720 BA TP's


Thanks to all the posters above for their replies

Regards
