I thank you all for your different views.
is taking away MRTC because they need to compete with the LCCs on the vacation/leisure route. So they converted only some of their types to the LRTC config.
I know what the industry is like in America. I think maybe you don't. AA
has no problem finding the room for a 38'' of pitch. seats. The average from other airlines is 37-39 inches of pitch. I won't talk about the width because I understand that airlines cannot change the cabin width. I can however compare the pitch which is determined by the airline. They could upgrade the seats and or adjust the config for a better seat.
I understand that you like getting your upgrade but it could be better getting upgraded to a more modern seat and better pitch than that on the DC-9s. The airbii have nice width but the pitch is still below the average. I was just mentioning that the seats are more like a great coach than a biz not to mention a first seat.
If you don't like it go back to the ops pages. I do pay for my seats and I work hard for that money. So please don't give me bull over this, I was just noting how sub-average(NOTE:I HAVEN'T USED
SUB-STANDARD) the seats are.
md-80 have the same cross-section but they still manage to have 38'' of pitch!
