Swiss is nice and modern. AAs planes before retrofit are old and not as nice.

Thanks, Im talking also overall, is it old style Biz or nice and modern ?
Angled=old style Biz.
AA old business class is a bad way to go TATL. There are so many better options.

Did you search for AB?
They have a much better product than AA and no YQ.

Supposedly it is but they're been having issues showing the space reliably for a year already.
Search with BA.com and call AA to book.

What do you mean to say by "retrofitted", did they renovate it?

The retrofitted 767s are lie-flat, yes, but I don't believe PG is correct that they're all already retrofitted.

ETA: AFAIK, the only routes with the new retro-fitted 767 are JFK-ZRH and JFK-MXP. JFK-MAD and JFK-BCN are coming this month and September, respectively.

Right. They definitely are not all retrofitted.
