What To Expect On Board


  • American Airlines is upgrading its Boeing 787 business class with its new Flagship Business product.
  • Business class passengers receive priority check-in, access to lounges, and early boarding.
  • American’s future plans include sliding doors for individual suites and the option for passengers to dine with a fellow traveler.

American Airlines has long held its Boeing 777-300ERs as the flagships of its premium product offerings, with only these jets equipped with the carrier’s Flagship First cabin. Nonetheless, as the carrier’s widebody fleet continues to diversify, the Boeing 787 has increasingly become more and more prominent.

Deployed on routes such as Brisbane Airport (BNE) to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), the Dreamliner has a lot to bring to the table. The carrier’s new 787-9s, of which 30 remain on order from manufacturer Boeing, will be upgraded with the airline’s new Flagship Business product.

Whether flying a brand-new business class suite or the standard business class offering currently available on most of American’s widebodies, the cabin undeniably offers much to the carrier’s premium travelers. In this article, we will take a deeper look at all that the airline’s 787 business class brings to the table.

Pre-departure experience

American’s elevated experience for business class passengers begins far before the flight takes off at the check-in counter. Passengers in Flagship Business are entitled to two free checked bags and can check in through a priority lane.

After passing through security, Flagship Business passengers dine and relax at American’s Admirals Club and Flagship Lounges, both of which can be accessed on the day of travel at both departing and connecting airports. Under some circumstances where an airport does not have either of these facilities, American business class passengers will be invited to a partner airline’s lounge.
