I really like the three-class configuration on AA's 777s. Isn't that the 2-4-3 configuration, or 2-5-2. I only remember that in coach there were two seats per window, but I only remember there being four seats in the middle. Anyway, AA's configuration is really nice. I hear United's has been converted to a similar three-class on their flights over the Pacific and Atlantic. So I guess United and American really do have more room throughout coach.

Thanks Frank! Too bad I never flew on MS, I always wanted to try them by booking a package tour from DUS to HRG during the peak season to get my first 777 flight, but before I could realize it, I got my first 777 flight on BA (fortunately because MS' 777's are rare at DUS and I am sure that I had end up on an A 320 or A 321 because I always have bad luck with last minute equipment changes ).

Oops - didn't know DUS had that much traffic to CAI, Patrick...
But, then again, with you on board it probably really would have been an A320... ... the probability of having an equipment-change when you're on board has been reported several times - so it's kinda legendary...

Yes, and lately I am sick and tired of equipment changes, my latest was last Saturday, instead of the A 318, fellow a.net member TriStar500 and me got a boring A 320 from CDG to DUS, the biggest brazenness was that it was exactly the same aircraft (F-GFKN) that we had on the DUS-CDG flight in the morning .
If any AF employee is reading this: Please feel free to contact me via the contact link in my profile and offer us a cockpit jumpseat flight on the A 318 for the next time
