POP: Picture Only Posts. Welcome to AA’s Super Diamond
Let’s be honest. Sometimes you don’t want to read a whole review. So we have a 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 at American Airline Business Class 777-200 Los Angeles to Tokyo HND.
A VERY quick intro.
I love surprises. If you didn’t catch my Mom’s Surprise Trip Around the World for her 75th, you should. Next up…my girlfriend’s birthday. I was able to snag seats redeeming Amex Membership Rewards through Amex Travel to fly direct from LAX to HND on AA’s newly retrofit 777-200. After the Amex Biz Plat refund? 60k total. What was even better? System Wide Upgrades were available at the time of booking, so we knew we could lock in a dope business class, and one that Miles and I haven’t tried yet.
If you want the Super Diamond seats – which are pretty dope. You want the cabins to look like this:
And it’ll look like this. Front on the left, rear cabin on the right.
If you read my review of China Airlines Business Class it features the same seat as this AA 772, B/E Aerospace: the Super Diamond. It has a lot of workspace, and is deceptively roomy under the IFE, which is amazing.
AA has one of the best selections of movies and tv shows in the air. They also have excellent Bose Headphones.
The new Cole Haan kit. Quite nice. C.O. Bigelow products.
Always love a good ice cream Sundae.
Wifi was solid.
Full review to come, but it was a great ride.
