Quoting ba319-131 (Reply 1): If travelling coach, AA80/81 is the plane to be on at the moment
Agreed. I would say that the 77W is the one you want to avoid - I flew LHR-DFW about two months ago in the 77W in coach and it was extremely uncomfortable. I was in an aisle seat and constantly getting battered by people walking by - totally unbearable.
Does anyone know why AA80/81 was switched to a 763?

If in economy, you can do MCE. It's the best of both worlds...772 has personal IFE but not MCE; 763 has MCE but not personal IFE on that route (to my understanding...feel free to correct, as I haven't been in a 763 on DFW-LHR or DFW-MAD or other DFW-Europe routes)...but the 77W has great IFE as well as MCE, which I have been on and was quite happy with (extra legroom and one less seat per row).
So yeah, if you're just doing regular economy, I would absolutely take the 772 since I prefer personal IFE to MCE on a longer flight (just personal preference). But the 77W offers both, so I cannot say that it would be the worst option by any means.
