Does anyone know how far along AA is upgrading their 757s? I know they've initially upgraded 18 of their int'l 757 for TATL routes, but I read on their website that they will upgrade ALL of their 757s. Does anyone know what kind of F seats will AA install on their domestic 757s?

From their website (I'm not sure the date of this information):

In a move to sharpen its focus on improving the customer experience, American Airlines has expanded its interior upgrade program to include all 124 Boeing 757s. The 757 upgrade project began in 2008 and includes new seats, new interiors and updated in-flight entertainment systems. The 757 upgrades are in addition to work completed to enhance 777 and 767-300 aircraft. The ongoing 767-200 work is being completed by the AA Maintenance and Engineering department.

F seat will be like the F seats on the 737 and MD-80s. There is one flying around in the system configured with 24 F seats.

I can't speak to how many of the domestic 752s have been upgraded, but I did fly on one this Tuesday from LAX to DFW. The upgraded domestic 752 cabins look great! I was in First Class, and the seats are identical to the First Class seats in the new 738s. The flight attendants were upset that the beverage carts were not catered any differently for the upgraded 752s, despite the fact that the upgraded First Class cabin has a higher seating capacity. The upgraded cabin was a substantial improvement over the dated 752s that everyone whines about on here. I think anyone who flies them (either in First or Coach) will notice a dramatic difference.

Only partially correct. The First Class seats are identical to the NEW 738 First Class seats, which is a substantial upgrade from the MD80 and Gen 1 738 First Class Seats.

Does anyone have pictures of the 738 F class seats?

I'm flying F JFK-LAS-JFK in 4 weeks on AA, I'm hoping that the planes would have the new interiors. The old 752 F class was definitely very outdated and just cannot compete anymore.

I have fond memories of the big wide beige seats from AA. But it's so 90's. If I recall they had the same seats in F on the DC-10s when I flew DFW-SJU-DFW back in '92.

The old seats F seats are making me think twice about going down to CNF next year in F on AA as it appeared to be a 757 and not a 763 when I looked the other week.

AA operates the 75L with 16 F/J seats to CNF, not the domestic configured ones.

I'm sorry but it will be highly unlikely, because only 1 or 2 domestic 752 have been upgraded. If the plans are still the same, AA will upgrade the 76 old 738s before the 106 752s in order to have a single configuration on all their 738 as soon as possible. I've read around 10-15 738s have already been done.

AA does not operate the 75L to CNF period. But all 757s to Brazil - REC, SSA and BSB - are the international configurations, as you note.

Thanks guys! MAH you are right, I may have been getting myself confused. I've been doing a lot of searching for different trips lately.
