Re: Should AA put Premium Economy on their A321Ts?

As you may know, AA is rolling out Premium Economy on their long-haul fleet, which is basically a domestic F seat in a widebody. AA currently has a 10F/20C/36Y+/36Y config on their A321T subfleet, which primarily flies between JFK-LAX/SFO. Would it be worth AA's while to add 4-abreast Premium Econo...
