Differences In Domestic & Int'national Seats On AA

Fri Nov 17, 2006 5:53 am

Could some please tell me what the differences are on the Domestic & International seats on American Airlines.

Am I right in thinking that:

The Economy seat is the same on both Domestic and International flights.

The Business Class seat is the same on both Domestic and International flights.

International First Class is available on the B777s only.

Domestic First Class is available on the MD-83s, 737s, 757s, 767s & A300's including the BOS - MAN service?

If someone could take some time out in explaining this to me, possibly with photos, it would be much appreciated.

8herveg...

well......unfortunately for us aviation enthusiasts.....AA is somewhat a stickler for a "no photos policy" most of the time. What I can tell u(from being a former employee and still have family working for them) is that the INTL Y-class seats ARE just about the same as domestic. The only major difference in this category are on the 777(they have PTVs). The business class seat doesn't really exist on the domestic fleet with 2 exceptions, the 767-300s which are in only a few cases.....cross-utilized for INTL long-haul flights and select domestic flights, and #2 the 767-200s used for many trans-continental US flights. The 767-200 also has a very unique seating arrangment, it still has AAs "OLD" 3-class seating configuration, using the "old-but good for trans-continental flying" F-class seats, the current business class seat, and of course Y-class. The A-300s and the 757s have just about the same F/J class seats(no footrest) and are both 2 class configured aircraft. 767-300s are the only aircraft in AAs fleet with only 2 cabin and have a footrest on the prmium cabin seats, and these seats are sold as J-or-business class on INTL flights and at F-class on domestic flights. And, finally, regarding the 757 on the BOS-MAN service....this aircraft is an ALL Y-class configuration....very unique, there must not be a premium market between BOS and MAN. I hope this info helps.
