Flew AA78 row 19 on Apr 22nd and, as I hadn't been on FT for a long time, had no idea that PE would be there. Was a significant improvement on MCE on what is a long overnight... but four across in...

Am on the overnight flight (leaves 02:15) BKK-AUH in F in a few weeks... have five hours connection at BKK before that.

Would appreciate recommendations for anywhere to eat at BKK around 9:30pm ?

I can tell you that 3J definitely has more legroom than the centre seats. I'm 6'3", I notice these things when I lie down :)

When will 77W go back on MIA-LHR route after September 2015 ?

For a while AA has run the 77W on one of their two dailies between LHR and MIA, with the other one being on the rather tired 777-200s.

I see that after around September 2015 the 77W has been taken...

Thank you. Phew. I too prefer AA38/39, far better for connections when flying LHR-MIA and also gives a longer working day (and more conducive time for sleep) when flying the other way.

Thanks. I'm not that familiar with where AA flies the 77W. If I am going to bypass MIA-LHR after they switch to 772, am I accurate in thinking that 77W is pretty much guaranteed on JFK-LHR ? Any...

I'm a regular on the MIA-LHR route on AA, even though I have options in getting to LHR. The reason is simple. The 77W. Whether (typically) in J, or (sometimes) in Y (MCE), the 77W is by far the best...

MIA-LHR switch of 77W on AA56

Would that FT would allow short search terms like 56, LHR etc.

Anyway, I see that AA56 this spring has been switched away from the 77W to 777.

Ouch... I won't be flying J overnight on the...
