Fresh, colourful dining experiences!

Dining Experience: 

AA has announced new dining experiences  - both in the USA and on international flights - drawing inspiration from AA's diverse range of global destinations. 

For Business Class travellers departing from Europe, for instance, passengers can enjoy options including chili-marinated chicken or a delightful gnocchi duet. Meanwhile, those journeying in domestic Business Class can relish choices like shawarma-seasoned grilled chicken or chicken enchiladas. Additionally, new pre-order options, including short rib mac and cheese, add to the gourmet experience.

To complement these fresh offerings, a handpicked selection of award-winning wines will be available in premium cabins.

Slippers & bedding

Dual-sided pillows will be provided in Flagship First and Flagship Business, offering both cooling-touch and traditional fabric options. Enhanced bedding choices, such as lumbar pillows, throw blankets, premium duvets, and fleece blankets, will be accessible across all cabins. 

Flagship First passengers on international flights will continue to receive pajamas, while Flagship Business passengers on all international flights will now receive slippers.
