Definitely not as on the ball as BA imo. Very personable crew though.

Oh and a little race over St John's!

On checking Flightradar, it could be UA to Dulles, AC to Halifax or National cargo ?

That sundae you picture looks awful small, but the steak looks fab!
They prepared ice cream from the trolley on my flight last week. Choice of a few toppings and someone asked for Baileys as topping.

Welcome to the real club........I have met very few people who, having flown CX or AA in those seats would ever go back to BA. I discovered AA 2 years ago and have never looked back.

Have to say, will look at AA next time in order to compare fully.
You really should, the lounges are not great but the 777-300 seats are as good as anything BA has in any cabin.

Depends on what crew you get on BA. The best BA crews would always win out but they are few and very far between now.

My own experience is that overall AA deliver a consistent solid business class product which offers real value for money and is a major improvement over club world. The seat alone provides a personal experience akin to BA First and the inflight snacks always available and well presented.

5 years ago I would not have looked at AA, now I won't look anywhere else if that seats is on a TATL route. Enjoy HNL, I leave next week but using the baby bus as I need the tier points. Looking forward to it but once the 210 goes to 140 its back to AA and their 777-300

Nope but now you mention it he's off to try it!

When you get to KOA, if you have time, take a cab 3-4 miles into town )kona) to "Huggos" and have beer and fish Tacos on the waters edge there.

No one waiting to process people at passport control but lucky I was forth in line. Security was a scrum too

Currently in Admirals by gate 42.

Jammy Bugger! You won't be able to give me an exact take on your experience in J now so I can compare it to mine.

Imgur isn't playing ball but F on the 321T is very similar to J on the 77W

Nice and private though and service so far is as I'd expect from an F product

Bloodies are still flowing and dinner is on way

I am sure Dublin lounge and the early flights were full of people doing an Easter holiday bank holiday. I was on the 831 this morning and sure the person sitting next to me was doing a TP run. Having decided to go via IAD I am now on American 75 on my way to LAX....
