Airlines often use wide body planes on several domestic routed for aircraft utilization. For example, you can often find a 3-class American 777 flying between Dallas and Miami. There’s also a 767 that flies between Miami and Orlando, a uniquely short route. They do this to not waste the time of the aircraft. While the aircraft may arrive into a city in the morning, and not be scheduled to leave out until later in the evening, it can certainly fly a few domestic short-hops during the day.
There’s a new domestic route you can fly with lie-flat seats in First Class.
American is now flying one of their Legacy A330 aircraft between Philadelphia and Boston.
AA 790 operates Monday, Thursday and Sunday, departing PHL at 2:00p and landing in BOS at 3:16p.
AA 746 operates daily, departing PHL at 3:50p and arriving into BOS at 5:09.
AA 791 operates BOS-PHL, departing BOS at 11:00a and arriving into PHL at 12:28p (M,T,W,Th,F,Su), and AA 714 operates M,Th,Su, departing BOS at 4:20 and arriving into PHL at 5:55p.
This aircraft features the legacy US Airways A330 flat-bed seat, a nice treat on a short hop up the east coast. It’s worth noting that the service will be domestic short haul service which, in First Class, includes beverage service and a pass of the snack basket. It’s not a bad seat, to be honest, with a pull out television from the seat ahead, and a decent amount of room to work via the pull out tray.
If you’re able to take one of this flights during the day, you might as well, to avoid the A320’s and E190’s that usually fly this route (traditional recliner First Class seats).
