American Airlines 767 Service

Mon May 02, 2005 10:08 am

I have a few questions for my upcoming travel on AA. Your help would be appreciated:
- Is it possible to reserve row 17 AB/FG ahead of time, or only at the airport (HNL-DFW).
- How is 2AB? Seatguru.com says it has 58" instead of 62" pitch, but is that noticable?
- What routes do the new configuration 767s (new interior) usually fly. I had it one time on LAX-HNL and loved it.

Thanks.

Four inches is very noticeable unless you are very short.

They don't usually fly anything. They are rotated around just like the older interior 767s.

How can anyone notice 4 inches when the pitch is that big?

I don't think 58" would be bad on an AA 767. A few months ago I flew a United 767 in domestic first class, and found it very cramped. An exit row would've given me more legroom.

We know for you it's not just a seat on a flight to a place. It's a seat on a flight to your life.

That 58" is in international J class, not domestic F class.

17ABHJ cannot be assigned to any passenger on DFWHNL nor can 2HJ, these are crew rest seats. On shorter flight 17ABHJ can be assigned but not in advance, they are Z block seats for day of departure.

HNL-DFW routes are flown by the same 767-300ERs that fly international routes. On domestic flights, the premium cabin is called first class, but on international flights the premium cabin is called business class. It's the same seats, same pitch, same planes. The only ones different are the 762s that fly from LAX to JFK and SFO to JFK -- they are three-class airplanes.

Aa777flyer,

Does AA keep row 17 for crew (the flight is blocked at a little over 7:30) or does it open it to passengers at the airport? I experienced row 17 from LAX-HNL and enjoyed it! However, I do understand that LAX is only a 5 hour flight and the longer flight may use the rwo 17 seats for crew rest. However, on my last DFW flight, I did see normal passengers occupy those seats as the flights are usually jam-packed. Thanks.
