Review: American Business Class 787-9 Sao Paulo To Los Angeles

While I fly American all the time, this was my first time flying one of their 787-9s, and for that matter my first time flying one of their planes with B/E Aerospace Super Diamond seats (they also have these on select 777-200s), which are different than the reverse herringbone seats they have on 777-300ERs and A330s.

I boarded through door L2, and turned left into the business class cabin, which had a total of 30 seats, in a 1-2-1 configuration.

I had assigned myself seat 6A, the window seat on the left side in the third to last row. I find these seats to be really sleek, and I like the dark finishes that American chose, which remind me a lot of Virgin Australia (this is about the only regard in which American is as stylish as Virgin Australia, though).
