It was stated in another topic:

AA tried using 757s in its 2-class configuration this past summer on the JFK-SFO route, and the negative response was so overwhelming, 767s were put back on the flights flown by the 757s.

What was the negative response, specifically. Did it have to do with going from 3 to 2 classes of service? From widebody to narrowbody on a trans-con?

Just curious!

I think the 767s AA used on the JFK-SFO route were inbound from an international destination. I would say the business class, which is quite full on the JFK-SFO route, would be far superior in a widebodied 767 compared to a narrow bodied 757. Just a guess.

Well it is very unplesant to find Boeing 757 two-class on a premium transcon flight. AA's Boeing 757 features only 40" of legroom, while AA's Boeing 767 features 50" in J, and 62" in F. most importantly, AA no longer features MRTC on Boeing 757s, compared to MRTCs on 767s. I am not surprised at the reactions. However, with LRTC coming back, I guess it will not make much difference, but simply affect the upgrade inventory for elite members.

Not surprised at all...

They do have a strong biz base and the premium classes are why they make so much money. The 757s carry more passengers because they are only F and Y. The 762 has a lot of F and J with a pretty small Y cabin in relation to others.
Jetnet shows that tomorrow, F is about half booked at 3-5 out of 9. Biz is over 90% full on all flights, only 1-2 seats in J open. Y is only about 70% full but the yields from the forward cabins take care of the $$ for these flights.
And, whatever they do not take up in paid pass, they fill up fast with upgrades. Elites would of probably been mad.
Their 757s only have 22 F seats which are even close to the 762 J seats.

W N = my Worst Nightmare!!!!!
