AA lie flat options
Are there any lie flat routes to Hawaii on AA? Seatguru seems to think LAX-HNL and DFW-HNL could be but I don’t think that’s right. Can setup a positioning flight, but would prefer lie flat if possible.
What type of plane does it say? I was just looking at this the other day! Going off memory right now…. but all of AA’s 767, 777-2, 777-3, 787, 330-2, 330-3 have lie-flat seats up front.
The 757 does if your seat map has 16 seats up front.
Says 321 Sharlets for the LAX-HNL, 757 for PHX-HNL and 777 for DFW-HNL. The 321 only has 4 2×2 rows like most domestic first cabins from AA.
Yep, the 321 won’t be lie-flat. All the 777 will. Easiest way to tell if your 757 is retrofitted with lie-flat seats is if there are 16 seats up front.
I’d aim for the 777 first, then the 757 retrofit, then the 321, then a non retrofit 757. The 757 won’t have seat-back entertainment (even on a retrofitted plane).
Awesome, thank you
