Old AA A321

Old AA A321

  1. Anonymous

    Hi Lucky!
    I’m a new follower and love your blog. I just spent a terrible red-eye night on a transcontinental AA flight SAN-PHL, which I unfortunately used a system-wide upgrade for. The flight was on an A321 that was old and not refurbished in any way, and there were no amenities, not even pillows. I was surprised, as most of the AA A321s I have been on have been refurbished with more comfortable amenities. Is there any way to know if you’ll get a refurbished plane or not, and any way to avoid this in the future besides changing route?
    Thanks!

    AA has 3 types of A321s and are designated 321, 32B and 32T. 32T is the 3 class aircraft for JFK-SFO/LAX. I believe 32B’s are the ones with Main Cabin Extra and are legacy AA planes whereas 321s are the legacy US Airways planes. I dont believe AA further separates retrofitted and non-retrofitted planes. Considering that you flew into PHL which was a US Airways hub, you most likely flew the legacy US A321.

    If you were specifically looking for lie-flat seats, those are only available on AA if flying between SFO/LAX and JFK. (also served by DeltaOne, United ps to EWR and JetBlue Mint)

    all LAA a321s (32B) aircraft have nice and new interiors. These are used for domestic and Hawaii flights usually out of AA hubs.

    I fly on these old klunker A321’s all the time from SAN. They are just awful and I’m not even sure there is a retrofit plan for them. Unfortunately, it’s hard to plan around these if you home base in SAN.

    if you don’t live near a LAA hub you are out of luck. luckily, I live near ORD where everything is LAA except to LUS hubs and DUB soon which is going to be LUS a330 when summer schedule starts
