The Red on top of each couch seat is a nice touch and unexpected. Is it anything other than leather material?

Wonder if it's red Velcro to attach a headrest cover.

I really have to say that from a visual standpoint, AA is REALLY kicking some butt getting themselves reorganized and modernized. Yea, they have a lot of old metal, but they seem to really be taking initiative to get rid of the super's!!!

These pics and more are availble at the boardingarea.com (I tried including a link, but apparently that isn't working, even doing the code myself -- weird!).

The red strip at the top of the seats is simply an accent, and can currently be seen on the Y seats on the 77W. They do not contain velcro for headrest covers.

Wow! I love it! Definitely contrasts the paint scheme in a few ways. From the outside, you'd kinda expect to walk into a lighter-colored cabin but this is great.

I don't know if it is just me, but the J-class seats seem somewhat narrow. Anyone knows the width, pitch and recline angle of the J-class seats?

Eight first seats is comparable to UA. I'm impartial about AA flying A319. Used a AA 738 for work the other day with the new look and wifi. I was impressed. The crew sucked hardcore though. A DFW based crew that supposedly got in late to LAX and just wanted to get home. Several EXPLT pax in First with me complained and planned on writing letters.

This is an interesting departure from the current interiors. No more blue cloth seats that have been around for hundreds of years. These new seats look amazing and the fact that they decided on adding IFE at every seat is quite exciting.

However, I'm still baffled by the fact that they only have 8 F seats. The F cabin looks awkwardly tiny, especially when you compare it to a 738.

Also, another side note, is it just me or does the A320 family have smaller windows that the 738, or any other aircraft for that matter? They look so small it's almost like being on a boat.
I'm not complaining, I'm critiquing...

I really like the cabin and I believe that the F seats are OK. The aisle width is exactly the same in the two cabin, and despite a larger armrest between the two F seats, you should get a wider seat. What I don't like is that in the first row of you don't have the space to stretch your legs.

It looks very nice but I'm confused by the galleys also - besides the lack of coffee makers, there seems to be a lot of cupboards but no catering canisters (unless the canisters are stowed behind the doors, but surely that just makes accessing them more difficult). Also the forward inboard jumpseat looks a lot narrower than normal - any reason why?

The first class seats look narrow because the back rest is the same width as the seat cushion. Many older business class seats have the backrest as the same width as the arm rests, which makes the seat look really big. In reality, you never use the extra width of the back rest, so the useable space of the seat is the same width.

I find interesting that the seats are so dark. I would have expected more red and blue because of the livery.

Also, I find it interesting that there are two ovens in First class. IIRC, US only has one on their A321 for first class. Is one for the Y cabin? Seeing as there is no oven in Y. I know they will use the A319 on flights that have hot meals in Y, like DFW-BOG.

Why does it surprise some of you that the FC cabin only has capacity for 8? Please remember the A319 is not the same size as a 738 by any stretch. The A319 is similar to a 73G (737-700) series.

It appears to me that the A319 is appearing in markets that were previously (decade or so ago) served by the F100. the F100 was configured with 8 f/c seats. Now it appears the A319 is replacing service that is currently served by Eagle, which, to many, is a service upgrade. I'll predict NOW just as I did before the new livery was introduced, that you'll either love it or hate it. The is NO pleasing 100% of the people, and that number is greatly LOWER here on A.net. It is what it is.. love or hate it!

The A319 also has fewer economy seats, but I would imagine that the elite flyers will notice how few seats there are for upgrades on the A319 and avoid it at all costs. The same thing happened with United on the A319 and 737-500s. Elites love the 757 since it has a big first class cabin and is easy to get an upgrade on.

That's correct, however the A320 has a wider fuselage and is thus more comfortable inside.  

One of the reasons why I prefer the A320 for short/midhaul instead of the 737. For long haul however, I pefer Boeing with the 747/767/777

I don't think AA will send the A319 into many markets that are served heavily with 757s. These birds are good for those markets that need an a/c larger than a CR7/E75 and smaller than a 738.
It will also be good for longer, thin routes, and routes to Northern South America where they can keep the yields up since demand is quite high. A319s have excellent performance from airports such as MEX, BOG etc..

Just like it is on the refurb'ed 757's and on all new 737's only this has leather, Its not a first class seat and the seat is horribly uncomfortable. I will take an MD80 First seat any day of the week. Who the heck picked these seats? I constantly complain to AA about it. It is horrible. I would never buy a first seat on these planes for this product. If I get upgraded, I get upgraded and deal with it.

Interestingly, the IFE system appears to be a Thales system, rather than Panasonic like on the 77Ws. I wonder why AA chose to go with them. Perhaps the Panasonic Eco 9i monitors are not available for these Recaro seats (only available for Weber/Zodiac 5751 and B/E Aerospace Pinnacle as far as I know; AA historically splits its seating business with either Weber/Zodiac or Recaro).

I'm not sure I agree. My last transcon on UA -- YVR-IAD two weeks ago -- had new entrees and a better wines and spirits selection -- plus ice cream sundays. The FAs were even multi-lingual (since half the passengers were Asian).

I do like the Beringers wine selection on AA, but many of my AA FAs (except those on Miami runs who can barely speak English) never get past Midwest-speak.

Maybe you don't, but I'm built wider at the top. The seats pictured above are similar to the new F seats on the 738s, and I find those to feel cheaper and less comfortable than even the MD80 F seats.
