    with the bigger seat -- just Plus not Business class --
    you are Group 5 boarding.... 1 to 4 are the big shot credit card holders and 1st class

    On my flight - there weren't 10 of them

    Plus seats are the highest of the low..... to put it one way.....

    They have some advantages

    Unlike UAL you can check in online
    When you buy the more space seat you free drinks and early boarding
    They let you order a sandwich in advance

    All good for me

    Doing SDQ to PHL today and then on to the UK Thursday

    So far so good
    Interesting the differences in people.

    I do not enjoy being on planes and try and do all I can to reduce the time I am cramped and uncomfortable.
    I tell the gate person I am claustrophobic and ask for the courtesy of being the last to board.
    Being the last one cuts down my time aboard and lets me pick any empty seat I find.
    As far as the food I am not be interested in airline sandwiches.
    I do not ever get tea or coffee as it is made with water from the storage tanks.

    We might agree AA not being a great airline but they do not crash much.
    The old planes they flew were filthy.
    When fuel prices dropped a couple of years ago they bought new planes rather than reduce air fares.
    Differences are what makes the world such an interesting place.

    They were terrible planes - better now...

    UK tonight flight... Plus seat, exit row, free liquor....low UK Pound
    just the weekend

    So far - it's worked out well enough... this is the test... transatlantic !!

    I got a new Chase card - Sapphire
    60,000 signup points and they work on all airlines- so I'm ditching the United Explorer card for this one

    WW, not exactly a perk when you have to pay for it. Me thinks perks should be free.

    Great.. so you've been to London.

    I "choose" AA between SDQ and MIA for one very specific reason. They have monopoly on the routing. Service?!? AA is an easy match for any Middle East or Far East airline.

    right = PERK was the wrong word.... after I looked at the website

    That's the way it was when I flew to Tokyo back in 1986 ... excellent kind of service especially when there are more than one checked bag.
