Lie-flat seats for first and business class are promised on some transcontinental U.S. flights when American Airlines receives its new narrow-body planes next year.
American expects delivery of 200 new jets from Airbus and Boeing starting in July 2013, according to an airline statement. The Airbus 321s, which will be configured with the new premium seats, are set to arrive in November 2013.
[For the record, 10:55 p.m. July 26, 2012: An earlier version of this post incorrectly said American Airlines would receive new 767-300ERs. The jets are 777-300ERs.]
A spokesman wrote via email that the airline has no further details of when the new service would be available to fliers.
