AA DFW-HNL Flights Getting The New Biz Seats?

Sun Aug 26, 2007 5:30 am

Hi A.net friends,

Anyone of you guys know AA DFW-HNL are getting the new Biz class seats usually?

I'm on AA 123 on August 29. Let me know.

Thanks,
Tony

Planes are randomly assigned, so it's luck of the draw. They do however do a good job of making sure Dallas-Gatwick and JFK-Europe flights always get the new seats.

Will all AA 763 a/c have the same Biz configuration in the end-state? I'm considering AA for my next long-haul vacation and that is attractive for my situation.

Every 763 will have the new J seats by the end of the year.

This second AA123 on 8/29 is showing the old J class. This means that AA is planning on using an un-retrofitted 763 BUT aircraft get swapped regularly (even in DFW). I will however check again for you closer to the departure date as I'll have a more realistic idea the closer it is the flight time.

Thanks Matt. Is it safe to say that if coach class has 189 seats it has the new Business class?

No. If coach has a capacity of 195 then it has the new seats. I just checked the flight and the aircraft is not yet assigned, so it's hard to know for certain whether 123 on 29Aug will have the new seats or not. Of course, even when the a/c is assigned, it's always subject to change.

Thanks. Let me know when the ac is assigned. BTW, when do they assign ac ?

The flight has been assigned ship 343, which has the new J-class. I hope it stays that way for ya!

FYI, only 14 763s remain in the old configurtation... the transition is nearly complete!
