A lot of people here don't seem to understand the concept of "You get what you pay for". Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is not a whole level behind Emirates, Qatar, Singapore etc. It is. My point is that you pay far less to travel in American Airlines First Class than you would in the carriers I listed.
As you can see American is still a good $4,000 behind Singapore and over $20,000 behind Emirates, though Emirates' flight makes a stop in Dubai.
