Hello, I know this has been discussed extensively, but does anyone have a link to any photos of the new AA 757 interior? And what are my chances of flying on one if I fly MIA-LPB/VVI in August/Sept.?

None.

They are not using this aircraft in that route.

What are the vents/grilling for behind the head where the eagle was previously located? And are these the same portable players found on the 767s or are they built in? Looks good though!

AA has not finalized the routes for the aircraft as more are converted, and Bolivia route is a strong candidate for the upgrade. It won't take priority over Europe, most likely, but if any MIA-South America route gets this other than SSA/REC, it's going to be LPB/VVI.

Built-in. The 75L fleet uses the slightly wider seats from the 777.

However, isn't the IFE system a Panasonic eFX rather than a Rockwell Collins dTES system? And what is that extra screen above the PTVs for in J? Perhaps it could be for the safety video and/or the moving map.

Also, did AA install curved ceiling panels? I think it would make sense to, as AA would need to cover up those holes left by removing the old CRT monitors.

Also, looking at the second photo, you can barely see the Y cabin. The seats appear to be the same Weber 5751 slimline seats with winged headrests that DL has on their 772LRs. I wish that DL would have went with the winged headrest option on all their aircraft with the Weber 5751 seats rather than only on the 772LRs.

I thought all 757s were being modified to have the new seats. What I hear now is that only 18 will be converted. Is this the case?

AA is going to have a subfleet of 757s (75L) used for Trans-Atlantic and some South American destinations, that have a more competitive international product than the standard seats. If I'm not mistaken, all 757s are being updated, including new F seats (God I hope so), but only the subfleet of 75Ls will have the new international J product.

I can see the difference for the IFE system, but what about the seat in this 757s? For me, it looks little bit smaller than 772's J seat. Is it totally identical seat compare to the one installed in 772s?

For me all I notice that is different is that instead of an eagle on the seat, the shell part that is, there is now a vent, that isn't present on the 777 or thee 767, is this due to the difference between the panasonic and rockwell collins IFE?

Wild card question here but any chance we will see AA send or have a fleet of 757's much like these upgraded ones to handle trans-con routes? I would think these would be great for routes like MIA-SFO which on some days can have a westbound flight time of just over 6 hours. Any comments? opinions?

IMO the new cabin looks great! long live the silver bullet AA 757!

It's hard to tell, but it appears that the rows are not exactly lined up across the aisle - the A/B seats seem slightly forward of the E/F seats. Can anyone confirm this?

I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Seems like AA treats transcon the same as if you were flying from BOS-DFW - transcon is "just another domestic flight" (except of course JFK-LAX/SFO and the one 3 class 777 flight MIA-LAX-MIA).

I think you are wrong. AA is one of only two airlines (UA P.S. being the other) that offers a dedicated 3-class flagship transcon service. They feature a genuine first, business, and coach product on a dedicated fleets of 762s. While I am not insinuating that the 757s will take over this duty or a new service will be introduced, I am simply saying that AA clearly does not treat all transcons as "just another domestic flight".

American also operates AA 16 JFK-SFO on their 2 class 763 with the NG Business Class seats labeled First for these transcon flights. However, while the seats are more comfortable than the reclining seats in J on 762, they offer the identical business class meal service.

Someone please indicate how Pilot and FA groups have reacted to this? I beleive there are still issues with crew rest seats etc for the 757 to be crossing the pond, specific to AA......................

BTW-Yes It's a nice improvement, but will still be horrible for international flying...any single aisle across the pond in my opinion is horrible.

On a related question: does anyone know if the AA 757s from LAX-HNL: a) contain the new F/C (like the photos above); and, b) contain blended winglets?

Thanks!

LAX-HNL will probably never see the new 16/166 config. HNL is a tourist market and not suited for the NGBC product. Not to mention that right now there is only 1 of these planes flying around out of 124 so the odds are against you.

All 757s have the blended winglets installed.

Mark,

For the most part thats 99% accurate. I believe a couple times it has done a DFW-SJU-DFW turn for the day. However, like you said it has been doing FLL and MCO turns

I covered that by mentioning JFK-LAX/SFO.  Smile

Take a flight on one of the 738s MIA-LAX... or on the EWR-LAX 757 and you'll see that it's nothing at all special... except you MIGHT get an ice cream sundae before landing if you are in First.

Quite tempting, it is operating as Flight 676 DFW-MCO a 2:45pm departure.

I was tempted to see how far out this went, and I priced a r/t for 209 (for April 1st)STL-DFW-MCO-STL to grab the 75L and hope for an upgrade to it as well.

Would this be to far out to assume the 75L would be operating this all the way until April? I know I risk an arcft swap.

Very nice AA. This has been a long time coming. but two things:

1. Why in god's name did this take so long? AA should have had a REDUX 757 back when the new biz class seats came out in 2006/2007. And now they are saying that this project is going to continue through 2014? Com'on AA, really?

2. With in seat IFE in First (different from the PEDs on the 763s) wouldn't it have been just as easy to install PTV's in Y as both cabins would run on the same system? I know AA said something about "Weight Issues" but that is a bunch of BS as DL and CO seem to not think it's an issue with their TATL 757s.

If they reconfigured the 757s quick enough, it would be a great idea. the MCO/IAD/EWR/MIA 757 flights really need this upgrade.



"KEEP CLIMBING" -- DELTA
25 LACA773 : In regards to LAX-IAD does AA use the 738 instead of the 757 because they don't need the capacity of the 57 on this route?
26 Tommy767 : They do use it at some points of the year. I flew IAD-LAX on a 757 last august. But i think the main reason for the 738 freqencies is because of the
27 Elmothehobo : AA74/75 Are operated year round with a different sized aircraft, be it 757, 767-300 or 767-200... back in 1998 or 1999 it was a DC-10. I take (took?)

31 LMP737 : The international configured 757's will be going through dedicated mod lines. They should be done by the end of the year. Or at least that's the plan
32 PanAm330 : Most unfortunately, AA has made that very clear with their half-assed "upgrades" in recent times. Refurbing the 763s and only putting new bins in F?
33 MAH4546 : There is absolutely no excuse that AA can make for not fitting the 75L fleet and new 738 delieveries with PTV. None. American Airlines once again fal
34 MAH4546 : 772s now have AVOD in coach.

36 PanAm330 : Is it not a half-baked version? I recall reading it somewhere on here.
37 MAH4546 : I believe that the RWD and FWD are in "X" minute intervals, but not sure what those intervals are.
38 Jacobin777 : I couldn't agree with you more...While it doesn't affect me, AA needs to "step up to the plane" with this (and new routes). Fortunately, AA is one of

42 MAH4546 : It is 18C. On flights blocked over 8 hours, it will be 16C.
43 Aq737 : The 75L is configured in a 2-2 for 4 rows, meaning 16C. On flights of length 8+ hours, 2 C seats will be blocked for crew use, meaning 14 seats avail
44 1337Delta764 : Well, that is a disappointment. DL has installed curved ceiling panels on all of their 757s except for the domestic non-AVOD aircraft, as it would ha
45 SXDFC : Does anyone have any Economy class pictures?
46 Tommy767 : But still, every airline was doing something to their 757s while AA said "didn't have the cash" which was bull. AA didn't start recovering their 757
47 Jdairceo : Actually not even the eight hour rule will apply for 14 seats, JFK-CDG is blocked 7.25 hours with 14 available in C. ***Anyone have pics of the mods
48 N62NA : That's cool... I prefer staggered - gives one a bit more privacy. So wait a sec, how many, physical, seats are in the new J cabin? 18 or 16?
49 MAH4546 : Yes, but I believe one side of the plane has an extra row? Interesting. I'm pretty sure it is 18C, with four rows on one side and five rows on the ot
50 SCL767 : Its 16C, the MIA international crews have recently been flying some trips with this a/c.

53 QQflyboy : I should have also added that on the return, the seat next to the pilot rest seat can be sold, allowing 15 pax instead of just 14. It depends on time
