    Good morning,

    I hope you all are having a good Saturday! Just cleared the ug for my LHR-JFK flight today. Looking forward to my first time in J on AA!

    Very exciting indeed, I know the feeling as I just flew J on LAN for the first time a few days ago and it was an amazing experience. Beyond my expectations actually :)

    Hope you have a great flight!

    I recommend that you do not fly
    -SQ J
    -OZ J
    -KE J

    If you do, you will be less enthusiastic about AA J. Or F for that matter

    Have time for a lounge visit? Did AA hit you with the additional charge when your upgrade cleared? Around 60 pounds ($90) if I recall.

    That's a rather short list of J products that are better than AA's. You could add quite a few more to be honest. ;)

    Unless the OP was given an an op up, I'm betting she had to provide a credit card when she waitlisted for the upgrade and it was automatically charged the luxury tax.

    Haha! :) I will post pics and my thoughts tomorrow. Overall, it was good. I know there are naysayers and that's fine. My basis for comparison will be DL and AF J, which I've flown in the past 6 weeks.

    :)

    No opup in this case, just miles and $$, plus APD.

    But let's keep this in perspective...the alternative that the OP had in this case was AA in Y, so J is pretty good. I'll take J over Y any day, regardless of what other J products are out there that aren't available to me.

    Hope you enjoyed it, rwoman!

    The first time anyone flies in a class other than economy (especially intercontinentally) is usually a momentous event. Congrats! :)
