I get that the average american is overweight to obese, but still, you're in there for 2-3 minutes at a time. I'd rather there be more room for seats. As for oasis seats, I flew an AA reconfigured 737-800 on Tuesday. It really is very tight. While it's nice to have power at your seat, the rest of the seat leaves a lot to be desired. As for the entertainment, what a pain. I was using my phone to connect to the internet and my iPad didn't have the AA app so I couldn't use that. I got out my macbook pro to watch the entertainment. There's really not enough room for a laptop on this plane. And watching a movie won't work on Chrome, it requires Safari. I launched safari and the movie wouldn't work until I installed Flash. The instructions to turn flash on weren't correct - the screen shots were wrong. It prompted me to download Flash instead. After trying to install my computer informed me I already had a newer version of Flash installed. So I hunted through the settings in Safari to find out how to turn on. As many of you know, Flash eats up battery, and my charger was in the overhead bin. I'm fairly adept at computing - I'd guess the average flyer would have given up long before I did. PTVs would have made that experience soooo much easier.

I'm the farthest thing from Doug Parker you could imagine. He ruined America West, ruined US Airways, tried to ruin Delta and now is ruining AA. But having a small bathroom on a plane is really no big deal at all. Having a really tight seat pitch with chintzy hard seats and no entertainment is a bigger deal in my mind...

My apologies I did not read your post fully the first time around. I agree with your points.

No the Oasis project is to convert 738s.

It’s the same seating/cabin size though, so if they roll back on Oasis they are likely going to eventually convert the MAX to match. Now would be the best time to make adjustments to the MAX (eg remove a row) but I doubt AA would.

Do the FA's receive additional training to be IT consultants? Because I'd never be able to figure out everything you're describing. Guess I'll just look out the window for entertainment.

I think removing the seat-back IFE is OK. Removing it would make the seat thinner and lighter, and make the tighter pitch a little bit more acceptable. As long as they provide movies through Wi-fi to the pax's personal devices. The seat-back IFE is really obsolete with the Wi-fi movie beaming capabilities. It's safe to assume everyone has a device now. Even if you don't have an iPad or tablet, you probably have a phone that can receive and play the movies. The economy class seat-back screen is not that much larger than a typical phone anyway.

Oasis Conversions have been stopped. Unknown to be permanent or temporary due to fixing seats or MAX groundings or another reason. Stated to be to fix the first class seat issues.

Rumor that "American will be making improvements to their Oasis first class seats, including better seat padding, actually making under seat storage possible, adding a USB outlet and tablet holder to the seat back, and more"

Nothing on Economy.
