Let's see here, narrower F seats, no legroom advantage, no power in most seats, more cabin noise towards the rear, small overheads, old WiFi, no winged headrests,. What else am I missing with Oasis? Oasis is modern and legacy industry standard. It's not something new. It's not something that doesn't work. UA and DL are proof of that.
P.S. AA's "dinosaur" is so much more comfortable. I'll miss those old seats.
There definitely is a legroom advantage with 31"-33" pitch in standard coach on the MD88, and 31" on the MD-90. Only 5 seats on the MD-90 are at 30" pitch, and both are quiet except the last few rows. Plus many would argue the 3-2 layout and 1" wider seats are also more comfortable. The Oasis coach seats are hard and uncomfortable compared to coach seats on Delta's Mad Dogs. But as you know it really doesn't matter - They are going away (27 MD-90s in the desert and 41 MD-88s) and what's eventually replacing them is a much better experience for coach passengers (A-220, A321, A321NEO)
Love that you bring up the delta incoming A321s... i know you love Delta... but help me out here on this so-called “improved product” coming soon to replace the Delta Mad Dogs...
Delta A321: 192 seats(delta.com also shows a 191 and 189). 30-31” Y pitch. 36” F pitch (oasis is 37” per aa.com)
Delta A321neo: 197 seats announced
Good luck finding any comparison on AA that beats that density on any a321ceo or neo
Delta A220: happy to give Delta the edge on Y pitch per their website at 32”. F pitch at 37”, Same as oasis 738 for their premium passengers
Guess the entire improved product is all Personal TVs? I’m struggling with this incoming “much better experience” claim and specifically mentioning the a321s
