POP: AA First Class LAX-BOS 737
Let’s be honest. Sometimes you don’t want to read a whole review. So we’ve created a new series called POP: Pictures Only Post. Posts in this series will feature the product, minimal description, and focus on 5-10 Pics. A more detailed review will come in the following week or two, but here’s a quick look Miles’ experience onboard AA’s First Class LAX-BOS 737.
The first leg of my Mom’s surprise $100k birthday trip was a positioning flight from LA to Boston. I’d booked it a few weeks ahead of our outbound flight for an amazing rate of $157. One way transcon for under 2 bills? Slap my face! Two days ahead of the flight my upgrade cleared and I had confirmed first class. Honestly, I wasn’t too excited to fly on the 737 as most are kind of dumpy and old, but this one was different, and I thought I’d share a few quick pics. The flight was great, I made use of a Go-go wifi pass and watched movies on a complimentary Samsung Galaxy.
I had bulkhead. Cabin had been redone in 2015 with the newer recliners, but without seatback IFE. I’m inclined to recline
I was very pleasantly surprised to see the new seats. No they aren’t lie-flat, but they’re very comfortable
Food. Champagne. ICE CREAM SUNDAE
Champagne in a plastic cup….love it. I had an orzo and shrimp salad which was very good and made me feel somewhat healthy. It accompanied by a SPICY southwest salad. It always makes me smile to eat a hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry sundae with nuts and whipped cream.
The Samsung IFE with Bose Headphones
This was a nice touch. The first device wasn’t working properly but it was quickly replaced and 2nd time’s a charm. The was a sex scene in the movie we watched which is always awkward when some boobs pop up on the screen and everyone can see it.
