I definitely prefer the seats, First and Coach, on AA
-80s and 737s to the old seats on the 757s.
The Coach seats on the 757s don't have the adjustable headrests, and the seats in First, besides lacking the adjustable headrests, aren't very cushy.
I can understand why AA
doesn't spend the money to replace the Coach seats on the 757s, although I don't understand why it didn't replace the seats when the MD
-80s and 767s received new seats.
On the other hand, I would think that AA
could justify replacing the seats in First. Those seats are used by road warriors or people paying full fares that get upgrades.
