I flew LAX-LHR and LHR-ORD with AA on 777 and found the service to be superb. Clean, comfortable airplane, excellent in-flight service, and LAX-LHR flight landed 40 minutes ahead of schedule. I thought all was lost for the US airlines until that trip. Progress is being made.

I had a similar experience with AA in Y class to LHR from JFK in 2001. I'm glad to hear that they continue to provide great service. The 777 makes all the difference. I recently flew LHRJFK with UA on the triple. Also, excellent service.

I've read somewhere AA want to get rid of their extra seat pitch on the 777. Will this also effect transatlantic routes?

I haven't heard anything about this at work. The 777's were delivered with the current seat pitch and I don't believe AA has any plans to change it.

1MillionFlyer,

I will double check my facts but I believe that you may be mistaken. Some seats (not all seats) were returned to some of the fleet types (super 80's for example), however I believe the 777 underwent no seating changes.

Respectfully,

The 777 will have its More Room Throughout Coach (MRTC) removed this coming fall/winter. However, if I have it right, they will only add one row of the original two that were taken out - so in a way it is still MRTC.

All of AA's fleet will have seats added in. All the 737's are done - they went from 16/120 to 16/132. All S80's are done - they went from 14/115 to 16/120. The 757's and A300's have been done for a year or two (they were the first to have seats added in i.e. leisure markets. Im not sure if all the 767's are done yet and the 777 will under go reconfiguration this coming winter.

Hey, believe it or not, 1MillionFlyer has actually BEEN ON a 777!  Wow!

So, I don't know if you should argue with him, since he is obviously the expert here.  Wink

Though I realize the intent of your title....

...for the sake of clarity, LAX-LHR is usually (if not always) flown by AA's TransPacific-configured 772ERs, despite being over the Atlantic.

Why does AA send pacific airplanes over the Atlantic?

American will be adding additional seats onto these planes by December 2005, removing "More Room Throughout Coach" and reducing the seat pitch a few inches. We will update the site with new configurations as they become available. Underseat space at all A, J, D and F seats is limited due to entertainment system box.


they have already started to add seats, you can;t be sure every 777 you get on this summer will still have MRTC that is the point

A combination of fleet utilization, market demand, and the slightly longer range of their TransPac 772s

Okay, 1MillionExcuses, let's get something straight. On all AA fleet types except for the high density leisure birds (752 and A306), only half the seats removed are being added back to the cabin. The 772, 738, 763 and MD-80 will still offer greater comfort than the industry average at around 33" pitch in economy.

Second of all, I assume that since you have been on an 6 AA 777s versus 5 DL 777s you would have us believe that you are even more of an expert in the removal of MRTC than you are in the fine judging of nonexistant/doesn't go all the way to the front/existant/just an illusion/crazy photo editing conspiracy center bins in newly configured 777s.

We will all, of course, overlook the fact that since not a single 777 has gone in for the addition of seats, as discussed in several recent threads, you could have no first hand knowledge of anything in this specific argument.

I look forward to whatever excuses you will continue to bombard us with. But please note: attacking me based on my age gets you nowhere. Have you read the DL 777 thread recently? You just make yourself look like a petty fool with nothing left to stand on. When will you learn that some people don't just know more than you in some topics of conversation, but they express it more clearly and more respectably than you apparently choose to do?

I just thought I would try to help 1MillionFlyer understand that he has to stop holding up his own experiences (which never seem to align with the situation, anyway) as indisputable facts. In four terse words, he gave a completely misinformed, incorrect and misleading response which served no other purpose than to mislead the prior posters who posed legitimate questions. I am sorry if I come across as harsh, but I don't believe I am alone in being somewhat frustrated (albeit a rather bemusing frustration!) with 1MillionFlyer for flooding the board with his utterly useless personal experience which he attempts to fraudulently pass off as legitimate knowledge.

Hmm. Every American flight I've had seems to have been bad-terrible food, surly staff, and delays. Either you have better luck, or you're very optimistic.

I too had a good experience on AA from MIA-EZE-MIA. I travelled coach and got my moneys worth IMHO. Nothing extravagant, but everything was clean, the cabin was well serviced and all of the F/As were friendly.

I don't care what you all say, the service on the WN 773 is superior to AA 772!

Does AA still have MRTC on their 772?
