In general US based airlines provide the least in First Class. Even within the One world alliance, AA provides less amentities in First Class than BA, QF, CX. No pajamas in long haul night flights, no mattress, only a duvet and in general meals of poorer quality. Also unlike Qantas, for example, flight attendants for international First class are chosen on the basis of seniority rather than service excellence. I wonder why AA does so poorly in International First class service amenities? I always ask the purser but they are usually evasive but one said " because other airlines are subsidised by their government and AA is not" which I think is not true for BA, Qantas or cathay pacific.
