American Airlines to Add Free Booze and Other Perks for Main Cabin Extra Customers
American Airlines will make some positive changes to its Main Cabin Extra seats starting this spring. The information about these enhancements comes from an internal memo that was published by TheForwardCabin.
Main Cabin Extra Enhancement
Starting this spring customers in Main Cabin Extra will receive these additional benefits:
- Free beer, wine and spirits, in addition to the current soft drink offering and snack selection.
- 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. (Flight attendants will not be responsible for monitoring the bin space)
- Preferred boarding.
Obviously good news, but probably the main benefit will the the addition of free beer, wine and spirits. Overhead bin space is also a nice addition if it really works but it will be self regulated by passengers. Preferred boarding might make it a bit easier to find space in the overhead bins anyway, likely after Preferred Boarding.
