Hong Kong Airlines Reviews
After an uneventful flight from San Francisco and a night at the Element DFW Airport, we made it to the airport at around 10AM for our 12:15PM departure. Our flight was leaving from the D Concourse, which was especially convenient, given that the American Express Centurion Lounge is located there.
We spent about an hour in the lounge (including a 15 minute massage), before going to our departure gate, D23.

We got to the gate at around 11:30AM, at which point first and business class boarding was already underway.

I had selected seat 4J, which is located in the mini cabin, consisting of just eight seats spread across two rows.
American’s new business class consists of reverse herringbone seats which are among the best in the industry. Not only are they incredibly comfortable for sleeping, but they’re also private, given that they face away from the aisle and have a nice “shield” right near where your head goes.

The entertainment screen pops out from the seat in front of you, and there’s an ottoman of sorts for your feet. If I had one criticism about the seat it’s that there’s not much vertical space by where your feet go, if you stick them all the way onto the ottoman.
The seat also has ample storage. There’s a compartment to the side of the seat which has room for headphones, bottled water, etc. There’s also a mirror there.
Waiting inside the compartment were Bose headphones. I do love how American has Bose headphones in both first and business class internationally — it amazes me how some of the world’s top airlines use really cheap headphones in business class.

Below the side console is even more “open” storage. There’s plenty of room for shoes, a laptop, etc.
The seat controls are located next to the side console, and it’s where the reading light, seat controls, and entertainment controls are located. All are intuitive.
