Wow, looks much better than the old UA f/b seats! A bit bland in color, AA has always been obsessed with grey, but look quite comfortable with all aisle access!

Re: American's Problem: Management is Out of Touch With Customers

The bigger issue in my opinion is inconsistency across the fleet. Now, some of the 772 fleet is in a high J config (45J vs 37J) and that fleet only has the forwards/backwards seats and is primarily concentrated out of one hub. If those were not changed, I would understand but there are a few planes...
