AA 787-9 DFW-ICN-DFW / Business Class

Recently (mid January) I completed a DFW-ICN-DFW roundtrip on AA. Both flights were operated with the 789, and I was in Business Class on both segments. DFW-ICN clocked in at 14h05m, while it was an even 12 hours on the return leg. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, but I will say both flights were enjoyable. The C seats on the AA 789 are very comfortable, with good privacy, a ton of storage space, large flat screen with a ton of movies, and the seat is comfortable in the lie flat position. The plane as expected was very quiet and it was an exceedingly smooth ride, nary a bump felt, in either direction. Catering was good, but unfortunately (or fortunately if you like them) there were a pleathora of mushroom dishes on the menu. Just never liked those things. Anyway, service was friendly, and I did not leave either flight hungry, with two full meals served plus a mid flight light meal if you so desired. Amenities included bottled water, slippers, amenity kit, noise canceling headsets, pre-departure champagne service, and pre-meal hot towel service. The last time I took this flight it was operated by a 3-class 777 (trip report link: viewtopic.php?t=980045) and I managed to get the old First Class suite. I'll always have a soft spot for the 777, however the 787 is an amazing ride in a premium cabin. In Y, maybe I'd think the same if I were about 100lbs lighter!

Thanks for the great pics! The food looks utterly cheap and tasteless for a long-haul business class......

I was on AA ICN-DFW a few weeks ago and these pictures bring back many pleasant memories. So do your pictures in the 777. I've flown both aircraft on this route, and while I miss the First class service and pajamas on the 777, I'm really getting to love the Dreamliner.

The food wasn't that great. The seat and the service was great, but the catering should be improved.

Interesting how much of a detour one has to take to go around North Korea.

I wonder how much time would that add.
