Antarctica Marathon 2014: AA First EZE-MIA-BOS Review (777-200)
My flight was at 9am so I woke up around 5am to take a cab around 6am to get to the airport around 7am. Once I checked in, I went to the LAN lounge, which is for both business and first class passengers.
There are some lockers right near the entrance of the lounge.
The food was ok. It had a normal assortment of pastries and coffee.
Boarding process was smooth and I got to my seat just fine. Luckily, there were only about 10 people in the cabin. There weren’t any passengers in the two middle seats in the first row, and I was on the first row, on the right.
I asked for the wine flight, which was cool to try out with my meal.
Lunch was served, as seen below. It was topped by an ice cream sundae with some fudge.
