As part of its international widebody strategy, American anticipates taking delivery of 10 Boeing 777-300ERs beginning in December. The 777-300ERs will be configured as three-class aircraft and will include fully lie-flat First and Business Class seats, Main Cabin Extra premium-economy seats, and Wi-Fi capability to keep customers connected while traveling internationally.
The three-class cabin configuration in the new 777-300ER will provide American with more customers and cargo capacity than any other aircraft in its fleet today.
Customers will be welcomed into the aircraft by unique mood lighting. American says it will be the first airline to use a dramatic archway and ceiling treatment on the 777-300ER to create a feeling of spaciousness.
A walk-up bar in the premium cabin stocked with snacks and refreshments will be a first for any U.S. airline.
Entertainment options include up to 120 movies, more than 150 TV programs and more than 350 audio selections that will be offered throughout the aircraft. Also, every seat will feature individual 110-volt AC power outlets and USB jacks for charging personal electronic devices.
