AA 773 seat layoutBack to Forum
Anonymous27 Jan 2012
Just got mail from AA and the propsed Business layout on 773 is 1 2 1 all forward facing (the same as first layout) so no facing backwards and no struggling to get to aisle. They say 6’8″ length for First but do not quote figure for Business. If it is long enough then this will be fantastic. If they compromise leg room like BA did with their flat beds then it will not work for me.

On other fronts AA passengers are benfiting form One World as AA implements many policies from BA, Free Wine And Beer on international flights, Pajamas and turn down in First, 70 lbs bag limit for Elite FFB’s.
Assuming the Chapter 11 is successful, this new more customer focussed approach should help AA gain share particularly in US originating travel (one has to accept that many people of all nationalities feel uncomfortable or ill at ease on foreign aircraft and this will always limit AA traffic originating overseas as it does BA).27 Jan 2012
ChrisBuda82, it would be great if One World did standardize. These look much nicer than Club World with the backwards facing seats and difficulty (as with current AA) of getting to and from aisle.27 Jan 2012
The CX seat is excellent, as good as F on BA. I’m delighted to see another carrier adopting it and it should cause the game to be raised on the north Atlantic where the only fully flat C seat has been the dreadful club world offering from BA. It’s not a route I travel often but AA have just secured my business if I need to travel in C.27 Jan 2012
I have to say I have been an AA fan for a number of years and the layout in First and Business of these new 773’s looks really good to me. I just hope they put them on LHR-LAX and not just the JFK run. It is a bit worrying that 137 is no longer a daily service.27 Jan 2012
Before we all get too excited, note that Sao Paulo is expected to be the first route to see the B777-300ER and that won’t be until December. So this aircraft is unlikely to make London until early 2013 and then only on a few flights until more are delivered.27 Jan 2012
If AA were to merge with, purely speculation of course by Bloomberg, then this new seating may never see the light of day:9 Feb 2012
