This was a connecting flight onto Tokyo Haneda.
- I didn't realize it was a Project Oasis retrofit until I stepped onboard.
- This was my first time trying the 737 Project Oasis first class.
- I've already tried the A321neo's "Project Oasis" First Class from Phoenix to Anchorage (link below).
- The A321neo's and 737 retrofit's first class seats are similar with a few design changes.
- The 737 retrofit does not have a seatback tablet holder while the neo does.
- Since I was sitting in the last row, I got to experience the "divider" placed between the last row of F and the first row of Y+.
- The seat featured 37 inches of pitch, but it still felt sufficient.
- Unfortunately the seat had quite a few flaws such as the lack of underseat storage between the two first class seats.
- Takeoff was great, the engine roar amazing as always.
- Interestingly, there was a medical emergency that required a doctor. It seemed to be minor, and they moved the passenger to an empty row in first class...
- As our flight departed after 8 p.m., we were only served nuts and a choice of drink... Is this really all they serve? Not even a snack?
- Flight was uneventful afterwards and we landed in LAX shortly.
Overall, the Project Oasis first class seat is possibly the worst in American's mainline fleet with the exclusion of a personal entertainment screen, less recline, less padding, etc.Previous Trip Reports:Summer 2018 to Spring 2019 American Airlines 737-800 Business Class Philadelphia to St. Maarten: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1420387
