I have just booked from flights from LAX to HNL for a vacation in September. The a/c is a 767 (AA) and I pre-booked seats 12A and 12B. I flew on a BA 767 2 weeks ago in Row 11, and noticed 12 didnt have a window but a blank panel! I really really don't want to miss my first views of the hawaiian islands, so need to check that row 12 has a window on American!

AA's service to HNL is fine. American will provide you with a meal in economy if flight is over 4hrs, which yours is. Their food is good in all classes and you will get main screen movie entertainment.
Leg room always good on AA and their terminal at LAX is convenient and easy to navigate.

Agreed, RRFan. All AA Flights from the west coast (SJC, LAX, & SFO) feature meals (usually a lunch or dinner). All AA flights from mid-Ameirca (ORD, DFW) usually feature a meal in addition to a light snack. Flights returning to the west coast offer breakfast (8am flight to LAX), a lunch, but most red-eyes do not feature a meal, only a snack.
The AA service is quite exceptional -- most Hawaii crews are happy to be going or having been in Hawaii and seem to be more caring then domestic and other crews. The MRTC on 767s gives around 34" pitch (noticable). However, don't schedule 757s (some LAX, most SFO, SJC) because they do not have MRTC.
Drink services usually range from 2 to 4 depending on flight duration. The meals are quite good. Sizable salad, a dessert, bread/butter, main entree. Usually flights to Hawaii feature a "Hawaiian" based entree. The 9:15am departure from LAX to HNL often gets upgraded to 767 when the aircraft goes tech (extra 767 in LAX).

The 767-300s that AA took delivery of last year are the only ones with the new interiors. We've been told by management that they'd love to upgrade the interiors of all the 763s, but it's a financial issue right now, so the original 49 in the fleet still have the older interiors.
The only way to tell if it's a new 763 is by its tail number- unfortunately you won't find that information on a public website. The 763s with new interiors are tail nos. N342, N343, N344, N345, N346, N347, N348, N349, and N350. The 763 classics are tail nos. N351-N399.

I won't know until 2 or 3 days before the flight, when I can look it up in SABRE, if your flight will be the new interior 763 or the classic. The Clasics and the new ones are used randomly, and no distinction is made between them for AA's scheduling purposes, as they have basically the same capacity. The new 763s have one more coach seat than the classics.
