why no fancy 1st/business class amenities to Latin America?
Anyone have any ideas why the airlines do not have the fancy 1st/business class amenities on flights to latin America?
I usually do at least 1 part of my flight to and from the US to destinations in Latin America in 1st/business 1st and have noticed that when you look on the airlines web sites, they always list the fancy seats, fancy meals, amenity kits for flights to Europe and other destinations but not to Latin America and I was wondering why? I can see in some cases that it would be a short flight but in some cases it is not - flights to South American destinations for example from Houston which is where I usually go from, are usually 3 or more hours.
The only time I have had a truly 1st experience was when I went to Peru during the shoulder season - Continental had the flat bed seats and the multi course meals but no amenity kit which would have been nice. Then I went to Peru the next year in June and it was just the regular leather 1st class seats and no big multi course meal - I asked the flight attendant where was the fancy stuff like I had the year before and she said they only do that on flights that are in the off or shoulder season - does not make sense to me. You would think that since Latin America is becoming more popular for Americans that they would offer the same stuff they do for flights to Hawaii, Europe, etc.
