The above featured image is me on an AeroMexico 787-8 jet. I have a full review of the product here and during “normal” times it is fine and a decent product. But during COVID it is nice to be private and the AeroMexico 787-9 offers what may the best product to fly right now. Take a look.
First off I also have a full review of the 787-9 seat here so this post is more to focus on what the mini business class cabin offers you and the window seat on either side of the jet.
This seat is simply amazing in the level of privacy it offers. It is just you with a bulkhead in front of you and behind you.
Not just that but there is a curtain pulled behind you blocking off coach and even one in front of you blocking off the lavatory and galley area as well as the forward business class cabin.
Your nearest seat mate is across the aisle and with high seat “walls” you have a great level of privacy and space between each other.
On top of that you get 3 windows to yourself and as an avid AVGEEK it just adds to the feeling of massive space and luxury.
I had a number of runs booked in late January and dumped a bunch of them due to the spike in COVID numbers and the fact they were on 737 aircraft with 2-2 seat configuration. But my MAD or Madrid run I kept due to the fact that I could self isolate as much as possible along the way and with the above seat even sleep really well on the 10 hour flight (each way) with no one close to me at all. This plus pulling in well over $12,000 in Delta Medallion MQD credit for only a thousand dollars net out of pocket. Fantastic!
Now the gripe I have to toss in was the food. While the appetizer was nice and using real glass again (compared to Delta right now) is much appreciated….
The beef dish was simply disgusting. I encourage you (if you can keep your breakfast down) to zoom in and look at this thing. If you think the photo is bad the taste was 100x worse. I took a bite and pushed it away. Simply gross AeroMexico. What were you thinking?
At least there was a tiny bit of ice cream and a wafer thin cookie to make up for the main course before.
All my flights during COVID have been either in first class or business class. I can not dream of sitting middle seat back in coach right now and it is a sad fact that paying for space in cash or points is, IMO, a wise choice and even picking the “best” seat matters. 10A on this 787-9 is one I would go for every time COVID or not! – René
