Hi,
I'm flying to LA from Heathrow & trying to decide between:
AA777
VS346
BA744

Although I'm more excited about the prospect of travelling on either the 346 or 744, I've read that AA777 would be more comfortable in terms of leg room/seat size. The price is also £60 cheaper (I'm flying on a Wednesday).

Is this true? Also is the aircraft likely to be full for a mid-week flight? (I'm wondering whether I'd be able to switch seats if they sat me next to Pavarotti).

cheers
Rich

Seatguru on the AA 777:

"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."

No more MRTC likely, however you will still get more legroom on a US Carrier in back then a European one.

AFAIK CO offers the most generous legroom:

762: Economy Class: 32.0" pitch 17.0" width 149 seats

764: Economy Class: 32.0" pitch 17.9" width 200 seats

757 (International): Economy Class: 31.0" pitch 17.2" width 156 seats

The 1 additional row of seats is being is installed in "zone C" which is the area between doors 3L/R and 4L/R. So the economy seating in rows 20 through 27 will remain unchanged. If you can get a seat reserved in that area, you'll be good to go with the "MRTC" legroom.

Hope this helps.

Row 31 still has plenty of legroom. Something like 10 feet. Try to get it at check-in, but it can only be pre-reserved by Gold and higher.

Of your 3 examples, AA has best pitch even without MRTC. But BA/VS may have vaguely better service. The VS346 deffo has the best IFE.

XRay, I flew AA's777 JFK-LHR-JFK a couple of months ago, and will be flying AA from LAX-LHR-LAX in December....

even though I'm a bit biased, the 777 has a "roomier" feel to it..and if you can get seat 31, you will never want to go back.....seats 31 A/B/H/J are phenom.....

I always try to get 31A.....basically you can setup a picnic area in front of you.......I'll be trying to post a trip report, but if you want to send me your email, I can show you some pics I took from Seat 31A/B.......!!

31J is actually just a little touch better than 31A, since the overhead bin on the right side has no (nowadays unused) magazine rack.. With 31J you are very likely to get your own large bin.

Did I mention I fly JFK-LHR round trip on AA 777s on average every 3 weeks?  Wink
