The most exclusive domestic flight: A review of American Airlines’ Flagship First from Los Angeles to New York

Posted by admin on

During the COVID-19 crisis, our team has temporarily ceased taking review trips. Instead, we have been publishing a selection of our most popular reviews from the past year. However, we have also resumed the publication of new, previously unpublished flight, hotel and lounge reviews, from trips taken before the lockdown.

Although it was a relatively late adopter of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Qantas is going all in on the newer aircraft. As the airline takes delivery of brand-new Dreamliner aircraft, it’s retiring the longest-serving aircraft in its almost 100-year history.
