American rolls out enhanced service through the month

By Rick Lundstrom

American Airlines' meal offerings will be expanded on international routes this monthFirst Class and Business Class international passengers on American Airlines can now indulge in a variety of new upgrades on the carrier’s 777-200ER, 767-300ER and 757-200 aircraft flying to Europe, Asia and long haul Latin America markets.

Upon boarding, First Class passengers will receive a welcome aboard card and an amenity kit, stocked with Dermalogica® skincare products, that doubles as a tablet case. They will also be given closed-toe slippers, an additional pillow, and the choice of a specialty mimosa drink.

Business Class updates include new slippers and an amenity kit with Akhassa® cosmetics.

While inflight, First and Business Class passengers can choose from new menu selections on an updated china setting along with new flatware and upgraded linens. In addition, First Class passengers dine with textured placemat, napkin ring, accent water glass and a bite-size hors d'œuvre.

First Class entrées and beverages will be hand-delivered upon request.  Food and beverage enhancements will include more variety and selections, including a soup option, and a customizable pasta entrée– that American says is a first for an airline. First Class passengers will also see an expansion of American's signature sundaes with a featured sundae option, a breakfast card for choices similar to a hotel room service, increased bread options and a pre-landing sweet treat and spa water.

In First Class, passengers will receive a wine tasting card to assist in their selections for the remainder of the flight.  All offerings will be specially chosen for the flight by American's wine consultant, Ken Chase.

Business Class customers will also enjoy newly designed food elements and a customized sundae from the airline's popular dessert cart. 

Premium class customers on the 777-300ER aircraft, set to begin flying on Jan. 31, can releax at a walk-up bar with a selection of snacks, sandwiches and assorted sweets, available between the first and last meals.
