Also flew AA JFK-SFO on the 763. That leg was coach, but their Biz Elite, or whatever they call it these days was nice, as I got bumped up on a SFO-ORD leg.
JFK-SFO was great, smooth, the coach section was just fine, 763 was super, first time on it, and it was just great. It seemed like it couldn't wait to get up and go.
I would echo Nwairlines comment though, check out JetBlue into OAK, as I didn't pay for this flight, and didn't check fares, I bet they are pretty competative, and those PTVs would make the time go by even faster.
They're not handing trophies out today
