    I promised last year to do a review of a transatlantic trip on one of AA's new B777-300ERs. Time, alas, did not permit, but now that I have just done another one, here is my overdue trip report - AA51 from LHR T3 to DFW. As an introduction, let me say that my last transatlantic trip with AA on one ...

    on: A320

    6.1

    ARRIVAL AT AIRPORT AND "CHECK-IN" We were connecting from a CX HKG-BKK flight onto this PG flight to Chiang Mai. We only had an hour between flights, 15 minutes less than the minimum connection time, so were most grateful when Cathay agreed to check our bags through (having made it abundantly ...

    This is the second trip review in a series of seven. This time around, AA81 from Heathrow to Dallas on a 767. CHECK-IN, IMMIGRATION & SECURITY AA have a dedicated room for check-in of "Flagship" passengers at Zone H of Terminal 3. After a surprisingly thorough questioning by AA security staff, I ...

    The aircraft was an Embraer RJ-145 (I wasn't able to show this in the title because it didn't appear on the site's list of aircraft). Fourth leg in a seven-sector trip, and the first leg of a connecting flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to London via Chicago. Unlike my other flights which ...
