Many experienced travelers know the benefits of flying business class and the added comfort and relaxation it provides. Business class cabin amenities and business class seats provide maximum comfort and privacy during long flights. Business class tickets on American Airlines will save you time at the airport as well.
Business Class Amenities at the Airport
Business class passengers can skip the economy and coach traveler lines at the airport. Instead, business class travelers move directly to the Premier Traveler lines which are shorter and move quickly. Business class travelers access these same preferred lines through security as well. If you are a chronic over-packer, American Airlines offer business and first class travelers additional checked in bags, free of charge. American Airlines provides higher weight limits for checked-in luggage without a penalty to business class passengers. Pack away, you won’t be charged for it (check with American before heading to the airport with your extra bags though because this privilege does vary based on your destination and the aircraft you are traveling). American Airlines continues to add to the list of amenities offered in the business class cabin and continues to improve the business class seat. Check the American Airlines website for a complete list of business class cabin amenities and business class seat options at the American Airlines website.
Your business class ticket on American Airlines provides you with access to airport lounges. The lounges are relaxing and feature bar areas, tables, and recliners where you can relax and wait for your flight. The alcohol is complimentary and so is the food. You can enjoy a hot meal, pick up a snack, choose from a selection of desserts, and get a soda from the soda machine. The lounges are clean, comfortable, and a great place to finish off any last minute work that needs to be completed, send out emails or even plan excursions for your vacation. A lounge attendant will notify you when it is time to check in at your gate for pre-boarding. Also, if there are any flight delays or gate changes, the attendant will notify you of these as well.

Business class seats are larger than coach and economy seats and depending on your aircraft and destination, business class seats usually recline to a completely flat position. Business class cabin amenities and business class seats combine to provide enough comfort and privacy to allow you to sleep on your flight. Business class passengers also receive a five-star meal, free alcohol, champagne, beer and wine and anything else you need to make your flight more enjoyable.
