Have you all seen the new AA "more room" commercial?

It shows a 737 at the gate and all the passengers are crossing their legs at once and it makes the plane rock back and forth. The captain comes on and greets everyone and says that he hopes everyone is enjoying the additional room in coach to let you cross your legs... then he says "we just kindly ask you don't do it all at once)... it's a real funny commercial... there is dog in a kennel under the seat and it starts sliding back and forth. very well done AA!

There is another 'More Room' commercial.
A woman is sitting at her seat with some papers and working on her laptop. Then, she looks up, sees the guy in front of her turn off his reading light. He starts to recline his seat, she freaks out and grabs her drink, laptop and papers to try to make sure she isn't crushed, then she notices that she still has plenty of room and keeps working.

I guess I don't watch enough TV to keep up with those commercials. Sorry.

AA are running a "more room" poster campaign in the UK which shows a big twin - to be honest not sure if its an A300, 767 or 777, with only four or five cabin windows equally spaced out along the length of the fuselage. A bit to subtle for my liking and to be honest it just looks like AA are moving into cargo.

I wonder how realistic the new seat pitch shown in the commercials is, compared to reality. In that commercial where the FA comes with a power tool and moves the seat...it seems like she is moving it at least a foot or more. I would think the actual increase was 2-3 inches. I am willing to allow for artistic license, but I don't think removing two rows on an aircraft would give the additional room that seems to be portrayed in the commercials. Would someone who has flowin in MRTC comment?

I believe that the commercials actually show configurations that are quite similar to what you will actually find on board. The reason that things look so much more spacious to us is that there is a LOT of "natural" (looking) lighting which in our minds makes us feel more free and open, and also they use short people in general so that it seems like there's a lot more room than there actually is. In other words, its all pretty much an allusion (sp?).

Anyone notice that they show MD-80 seating inside, and the 738 outside?

Regardless of how much more room AA is giving passengers, I have to commend AA for giving passengers more room throughout the entire coach cabin rather than doing the "Economy Plus" approach that United did where only the first few rows of the coach cabin has more room. I think the "Economy Plus" approach is one of the many stupid things that UA has done. Just my 2 cents.

That's one of the dumbest commercials I've ever seen.
In fact, all of the AA More Room commercials are stupid.

You would think the airline in the US with the most money could come up with something less cheezy.

I think those commercials are funny, also I have flown MRTC, and I gotta say it is definately an improvement. Oh yeah, the plane is taxiing, it isn't at the gate  Smile.
Agnus- AA is just taking a more casual approach to the ad.

I think the ads are pretty goofy. The one in particular the 737 is wobbling like a weeble and the employees have simpleton expressions on their faces. Its just corny at best.

Take a good look at the shot of the 737 taxiing. The engines are flattened on the bottom, more like the classic 737s, not like the 738. Anyone notice?

The 73G has flattened engines as well. The only 737s without these engines are the 731 and 732.
