I really have to say that from a visual standpoint, AA is REALLY kicking some butt getting themselves reorganized and modernized. Yea, they have a lot of old metal, but they seem to really be taking initiative to get rid of the super's!!!

Eight first seats is comparable to UA. I'm impartial about AA flying A319. Used a AA 738 for work the other day with the new look and wifi. I was impressed. The crew sucked hardcore though. A DFW based crew that supposedly got in late to LAX and just wanted to get home. Several EXPLT pax in First with me complained and planned on writing letters.

This is an interesting departure from the current interiors. No more blue cloth seats that have been around for hundreds of years. These new seats look amazing and the fact that they decided on adding IFE at every seat is quite exciting.
However, I'm still baffled by the fact that they only have 8 F seats. The F cabin looks awkwardly tiny, especially when you compare it to a 738.
Also, another side note, is it just me or does the A320 family have smaller windows that the 738, or any other aircraft for that matter? They look so small it's almost like being on a boat.

I really like the cabin and I believe that the F seats are OK. The aisle width is exactly the same in the two cabin, and despite a larger armrest between the two F seats, you should get a wider seat. What I don't like is that in the first row of you don't have the space to stretch your legs.

It looks very nice but I'm confused by the galleys also - besides the lack of coffee makers, there seems to be a lot of cupboards but no catering canisters (unless the canisters are stowed behind the doors, but surely that just makes accessing them more difficult). Also the forward inboard jumpseat looks a lot narrower than normal - any reason why?

Quoting DTWPurserBoy (Reply 15):
OK--this 38 year veteran flight attendant wants to know why there is no coffeemaker in the FC galley? I have never seen one in a closed compartment before but that may be where they hid it.
They must be hidden because there aren't any in the AFT galley either.
No more hot beverages on AA... cutting costs!
