I absolutely love the 767 and 777 planes in Business Class on American Airlines. The best part about both configurations is the ability to lie flat and sleep on a long flight. For my flight on American Airlines from MIA-GIG (Miami to Rio de Janeiro), it was on a 767-300 in Business Class.

The 763 Business Class seat contained a pillow, blanket, and the new red American Airlines amenity kit.
The flight attendant offered me champagne, mimosa, orange juice, or water. I opted for the champagne.
The Business Class menu with a wine list was presented.
After takeoff, I was offered my choice of beverage and warm mixed nuts. My absolute favorite drink is cranberry and vodka with lime.
The starter was smoked salmon with spring pea blinis and cream cheese. It also came with salad seasonal greens with fresh vegetables, feta cheese, and pepperoncini. In addition, two types of breads was served which was a pretzel stick and garlic parmesan.
As an entree, I had the Pan-fried Halibut offered with bell pepper and green olive sauce and parslied potatoes. The halibut was a bit hard, but edible. Next time, I would go with the Manchengo Chicken or the Fillet of beef to be safe.
For dessert, I had a fully loaded made to order ice cream sundae.
I brought my own in-flight entertainment and slept for 5 hours.
45 minutes before landing, the flight attendant woke me up for breakfast. Breakfast consisted of a three cheese omelet with pomodoro sauce, sundried tomato, basil, turkey sausage, and a potato croquette. I was so full, I could only finish half of my omelet, but it was tasty.
This was the best crew I’ve ever encountered on an American Airlines international flight. The flight attendants were all nice and greeted me by my name. The food came out quick and they were all attentive in bringing out and clearing the dishes. There was no sundae cart as they brought each dessert out from the galley to each individual passenger. I also chatted with them in the galley before landing and found out that they were going to be on my return flight as well, which was awesome.
I have to be honest, I think the US Air Envoy product is a much better configuration for business class seating.
Im going to be flying the 767-300 either out of DFW or JFK to GIG, havent made my final routing plans yet (LAX-GIG). I will also be in Business class. How is it getting through customs & immigration at GIG? Would I be able to use the Flagship services at LAX (737-800) or DFW (767-300)?
Customs at GIG is pretty smooth.. They didn’t ask me any questions and just stamped my passport. You will not have access to Flagship services at LAX. You’re talking about flagship check in right? You can access the Flagship Lounge at LAX if you’re an Executive Platinum traveling on an international itinerary
Have you ever tried the 5 star service?
No I haven’t…
