Re: Boeing delays 777-8X entry into service

Keeping in mind that the A35J will seat 20-30 (27 diff for Q suite on QR) seats less than current 10AB 77W in similar configs. Qatar's A35J has 46 J vs 42 of 77W. If you replace those 4 extra J with 2 rows of Y, the difference come down to 13 seats - basically a little over an extra Y row in 77W. I...

Re: Why doesn’t AA fly widebodies on JFK-SFO/LAX

Because AA needs a true first class on JFK to LAX and SFO, and among wide bodies, only the B77W has first class. The B762s that were replaced by these A321s had an international first class on them. To be fair, AA's A321T F seats are basically their long haul J seats. UA fly 78J and 77W which have ...
