actually, none of AA's planes have a 35" seat pitch. A close friend is a mechanic lead @ MIA.. he said most seats have about 1" of extra legroom depending on the length of the aircraft. He also said the MD 80 fleet is a bit wierd, as the seats behind the the emergency exit on the left have the most legroom... but there are only a few consistent rows in the MD 80s that have the same legroom... so it's hit or miss.
The TWA 757s have the most legroom in the *back* of the plane... where you'll see 34" of seat pitch.
I've flown a few more flights than I wanted on AA, mainly AA MD80s, Airbus A300, and the ex TW 757 (including the ERJs and ATRs, but those don't have MRTC) and I must say, I wasn't impressed. Being a 1P at United, I get Economy Plus and I definitely missed United each time I got on board on AA plane. AA's seats are considerably thinner than UA and aren't as plush, and the legroom is a considerable difference on Y+ on UA than MRTC on AA.
The other thing you need to remember about seat pitch.. it's from the back of the seat in front of you to the back of YOUR seat. Most airline seats are bigger than others... ie I flew an AA MD 80 LAS-ORD and an ex TW 757 STL - LAS... the MD80 seat was considerably nicer and more comfy, and *thicker*...
