For a number of years, AA had what they called MRTC - "More Room Throughout Coach" - where they removed one to two rows of seats and expanded legroom from 31" to 33-34". However, AA found they could not extract any fare premium and ended up actually losing revenue on each flight because they had one to two rows of seats less to sell. So after a few years, they ended the program, returned the rows, and shrunk the pitch.

Understood. However, I do not think AA could cater to that group of people enough to make the investment worth it, to be honest. Folks who buy a top Economy fare on a US domestic carrier do so because they have to - they either need the flexibility to change/refund those fares offer or they're buying at the last moment and are taking whoever is convenient.
But I could very well be wrong.
