Hey all! On 11/4, I took a trop to Austin, TX via American Airlines for a couple hockey games to play. This flight is possibly one of my best domestic flights I’ve had, and yes, it was onboard American Airlines’ infamous Oasis cabin.

8:17PM CDT Scheduled Arrival
2 Hours, 17 Minutes Flight Time
With my dad trying to eat Chick-Fil-A 45 minutes prior to boarding, here I am showing up to TSA Pre-Check 5 minutes before boarding.
After making it 10 minutes late to boarding and being 5th to last to board, I sat in seat 25A. Legroom was pretty nice, IFE for Movies and TV was free, internet access being $12 an hour from what I can remember which is a bit expensive but not needed on a 2 hour flight.
Forgot to mention that today’s pilots were literally named Tom and Jerry. Please get this reference.
We used Runway 01R for departure after waiting in a line of 6. This being the 3rd time I’ve taken off this runway as the other 46 times I’ve departed this airport, we used 08 and 26. A G-Force 727 which arrived for the season can be seen if you look closely. 👀
A slower climb lead us to be up close with the mountains. Nellis AFB also can be seen!
Views of one of the seven wonders of the world!
Snack / Drink service was not bad. Could’ve been better but I’m not complaining. I was given 4 bags of pretzels without request as they had too many lol. Biscoff cookies never go wrong either. 🍪
Sunset over New Mexico! This is where they dimmed the cabin lighting too.
Descending through 10000ft into @Suhas land.
After a rather rough touchdown of -300 or so (definitely done by pilot Jerry), I had a little peak of the cockpit. A little blurry but really cool.
The return flight is this weekend on 11/7, I’ll ask for a better view of the cockpit as the pilots of this flight were unable to let me actually sit in the seats since they needed to talk with ground crew. Till next time!
