Dallas Morning News has some additional cabin pics of AA's new 777-300ER including the business class and main cabin.
http://aviationblog.dallasnews.com/2...-american-airlines-777-300er.html/

Anyone find any photos of the 738 with AVOD that was supposedly delivered recently?

It looks great! Amazing improvement from previous cabins. AA's new business class looks pretty much like BA's and CX's business classes.

The first and business class products are very good. The business class is the same that CX uses. I’m not surprised that they avoided showing the 10 abreast economy section.

The first class is marginally improved. The business is the same seat as CX, but wildly different from BA.

I like more the Business Class fabric. The F class looks a bit outdated.

I mentioned it in another thread, but AA is not scheduled to take delivery of any AVOD-equipped 738's until Q4 of this year.

Thanks for the update. Is this when the first new narrowbody planes will see the updated seat covers?

Just as AVOD will be on the way out in 2-3 years.

wow, how the tide's have turned. Qatar Airways, a Middle Eastern airline has given up its first class and American has added one, never thought I'd see the day.

The Business class looks identical to CX. And QRs is not too far off, but I think QRs looks a loot roomier and a lot better IMHO. I wonder if there's a case of oneworld negotiating together with companies for interiors, it might be a good cost saving strategy in addition to harmonizing the product across the board.

AA has always had an international first class, but they are cutting back on it significantly. All their 772ERs (which are currently 3 class) are being reconfigured to 2 classes (their 763s are already 2 class only).

Ok, good, I thought I was going crazy. I just kept telling myself "I feel like I know that seat very well", since I go to China frequently and prefer CX.

This arrangement makes me wonder: do people never travel together in business class? The cabin is 100% configured for single travellers... it would be rather awkward to use if you travel with a partner or as a group. Perhaps that's the target market, but it still surprises me.

Coach on a 773 can't be as bad as the tiny seats on the Embrears. But seriously, how is flying on an AA 737, 757, or MD-80 any different from a DL 737, 757, or MD-88?

By the same token, I remember when DC-10s and L-1011s were 2-4-2 in the days of regulation. By 1990, AA, UA, DL, NW, TW, etc had all gone to 2-5-2, and they were using DC-10-30s and L-1011-500s on trans-Atlantic routes. Not to mention that 747s had gone from 3-4-2 to 3-4-3 in coach.

ckfred,

The difference is you aren't sitting on an MD-80 for 16 hours nonstop. Emirates did their best to keep me out of coach while doing a story for them on their 777.... I was told every excuse as to why I couldn't go back into Economy and try it out and talk with customers, yet had free reign on First Class & Business. Same on the A380. The moment I started playing around in economy once we landed in JFK, the purser did her best to push me out of the plane. I think AA is doing the same thing with the media.

And yes, the seats ARE that bad. They're a bit thinner than the seats on the 757. Airlines have already done a good job of masking the 16.9" wide seats on the 787, but you'll never see me on it.

ETOPS - considering you work for US, aren't you being a bit presumptuous here.... while a merger is probably going to happen, its not there yet. Plus, weren't you with us when they reconfigured our awesome A330s back in 2006?? I swear you were all swearing up and down how they are making the A330s the most uncomfortable plane when they added rows to it. I seem to recall some threads on USAviation....

Most people agree with him; 10 abreast seating in Y class is not that great. The First and Business class looks fantastic; I think people will be really happy with it.

The middle two seats are angled towards each other for passengers travelling together (with privacy curtain that can be raised for those not).

And when Delta switch to 10-abreast on its 772s (which it will), then what? 10 abreast is the new normal. People need to get used to it. I don't like it either, but it helps keeps air travel affordable.

From the perspective of never having flown business/first before I'd love to give it a try. Looks like a great product but the color schemes remind me of bank/financial office conference rooms, very sterile and no color or creativity. That seems to be a trend on most American and European carriers from what I've seen.

With the prices for F & J I'll stick to coach until I can figure out this whole frequent flier business

Mark, I strongly believe in the power of social media. If enough people make a stink about it, then hopefully others won't follow.

I only sat in the EK 777W Economy seat for a few minutes, and at first, it felt comfy. Then when you start moving around, and realizing the size of the seat, I realized how uncomfortable it will be for the person next to me. Even cabin pics of ANZ, EK, and AF show some fairly miserable people in Y.

Yet airlines are selling legroom when some of us would rather pay for width. First Class is NO longer just a wider seat, its now a freaking space bed with iShower and iBar.

The First class cabin looks fine until you compare it against that of alliance partners BA, CX, JL, QF and competitors AF, LH, NH, SQ, EK et al (in a long-haul environment). It really looks quite dated and the amount of space allotted to each passenger at the front of the bus doesn't look particularly generous.

I believe in it too, but it's not going to happen. People aren't going to be willing to pay a premium to fly 9-abreast in coach to make up for the lost revenue/competitive advantage that 10-abreast airlines will have.

Admitedly I've never been in 10-abreast Y, but isn't that seat about as wide as a standard 757 seat?

Yes, almost identical, must be a Oneworld perk! I like that fact that they are reverse herringbone, i.e. face the windows. Otherwise you have to twist yourself round to see the view.
