There is a press release today about AA's new seasonal Boston-Manchester service to be operated with a single class 757-200 with 188 seats. Is this the only route that AA uses a single class configuration? I do not know of any others. Will an AA or ex-TW aircraft operate the route? Neither seems to have 188 seats (I could be wrong?). And, is a specific aircraft dedicated to this route? All AA 757s have a first class cabin (called business class on some routes) - will the seats upfront be assigned to luck economy class passengers (or FF members) or has an aircraft or two been reconfigured?
Do you think this is the beginning of new trend at AA - all economy class aircraft for leisure routes?
