American Airlines Introduces New Flagship Suite® Seats

Customers of American Airlines are getting a brand-new ride. The airline will debut new Flagship Suite® premium seats and a revamped aircraft interior for its long-haul fleet with fresh deliveries of its Airbus A321XLR and Boeing 787-9 aircraft, beginning in 2024.

With a privacy door, a chaise lounge seating option, and extra personal storage space, Flagship Suite® seats will provide clients with a private, premium experience. In American’s premium cabin, customers will experience personalized luxury in their own private sky retreat.

American was the first U.S. airline to debut long-haul Premium Economy seats in 2016, and in response to customer demand, the airline is adding even more Premium Economy seats to its long-haul aircraft. The new custom-designed Premium Economy seat creates more privacy and doubles the amount of in-seat storage space.

By 2026, premium seating on America’s long-haul fleet will increase by more than 45 percent due to the installation of new interiors on its planes. The airline’s Boeing 787-9 aircraft will have 51 Flagship Suite® seats and 32 Premium Economy seats, and its Airbus A321XLR aircraft will have 20 Flagship Suite® seats and 12 Premium Economy seats.

Refreshing existing aircraft

American will also be retrofitting its aircraft, the Boeing 777-300ER, to include Flagship Suite® seats. These 20 aircraft will be refreshed with the new interiors starting in late 2024. American’s aircraft will feature more premium seats than its current design, with 70 Flagship Suite® seats and 44 Premium Economy seats.

In order to synchronize those 16 aircraft with the rest of its Airbus A321 fleet, American will also modify its A321T fleet. Along with its Northeast Alliance partner, JetBlue Airways, American will continue to provide lie-flat seats on its transcontinental routes leaving New York and Boston, giving passengers a premium experience and the chance to arrive rested after a long journey.

Styling from ground to air

The first of American’s dreamily updated Admirals Club® lounges, which opens at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) this fall, is where premium passengers will first see the airline’s distinctive flair. From the lounges to American’s revamped long-haul planes, branded items with sustainable wood designs will be present.

Customers will be welcomed with an illuminated American Flight Symbol and thin red accent lines when they board American’s newly remodeled aircraft, which was conceived by design powerhouse Teague and confirms their flagship experience. In the Flagship Suite® seats, guests will be surrounded by comfort and large surface and storage areas they may use to match their particular needs, whether it’s to snack on delightful fare, enjoy entertainment, or relax during the journey.
