Per an internal email sent to American Airlines employees, American is introducing several new enhancements to their Main Cabin Extra (extra legroom) seating starting this spring.
Complimentary Beer, Wine and Spirits
Customers in Main Cabin Extra will get free beer, wine and spirits, in addition to the current soft drink offering and snack selection.
Dedicated Overhead Bins
Starting on February 1, 2018, new placards will be installed to label overhead bins over Main Cabin Extra seats as reserved for those customers only. It is worth noting that flight attendants will not be responsible for monitoring the bin space.
MCE customers will also receive some type of preferred boarding, most likely in Group 6 after all Priority customers.
These are three positive changes for the Main Cabin Extra seating offering, though I would have liked to have seen a more enhanced snack basket offering instead of the current pretzel bags and Biscoff cookies.
