Truly terrible seat. The bulkhead panel is straight from the floor to the ceiling - no bend in the panel for leg room. But the panel separating the tiny first-class section to the premier-economy section has a bend to allow an extra foot of leg-room. The 8D bulkhead seat is actually a better seat than the 1D. I was upgraded to 1D and I sat in the seat and found even less leg room than in the back of the bus. I gave up that seat and returned to my previously assigned seat, 10D. It was a much better experience. Maybe a tiny person would like 1D but anyone with regular-sized legs would be infuriated to have paid extra for this seat.
There is no room for your legs. My son's legs touched the seat in front. It is so tight you cannot reach down and access your bag under the seat in front of you. THis is a total safety hazard.
Worst seats in aplane You do not have any space ..I am 5'3" and my knees were touching the seat in the front, in my way back i upgrade the seat to Extra cabin and I was confortable, but main cabin it is imposible to fly more than 1 hour !!!
So you want to have the most cramped uncomfortable ride anywhere? Then book on American Airlines and fly on this plane. You won't be disappointed. I booked this flight from Barbados to Charlotte. I'm 5'8" and usually don't have a problem even in standard coach. I couldn't even open my laptop without they keyboard in my belly and straining my neck to see the screen because the person in front of me had their seat back (So Did I). The problem with AA is they are trying to make more money and expecting customers to live with their actions. Speak with your pocket book folks!! I'm a Diamond on Delta, was thinking about doing a challenge on AA but after this flight home from Barbados and the flight from home to Barbados on American Airlines I can honestly say I'll never fly American Airlines again, and If they are the only carrier to get where I need to go I'll be cancelling my trip.
7:30PM departure from MIA to SFO. Not lie flat/pod seats, just basic domestic first class seats. They do not have Bose/high quality headsets for the entertainment system, which is pretty weak considering the shift to bluetooth.
This was the most cramped seat I have ever been in by far. A total joke...I will NEVER fly in this airplane again. Packed in like sardines, forget picking anything up off the ground, forget putting anything other than a phone in the pouch on the back of the seat in front of you. Try to put an IPAD in that pouch? Forget it! I repeat, this is by far thee worst seating I have ever encountered.
This is the worst seat i have ever had. American Airlines, looks like i will switch back to SWA
Extremely short leg space. Almos you dont fit in. Only one bag storage bin.
I fly on this plane from Miami to Manaus, Brazil frequently. There is really no comfort on this plane, anywhere! If you can avoid it. Otherwise, this first row of the First/Business Class cabin for me works better than the second row. I put my roll-on case in front of me, so my feet and legs have a nice place to rest and they are not just hanging there for 5 hours.
I found the foot space was very adequate, and I am a large person. The seat was wide enough for me and I was pretty comfortable. I had to bring my own seatbelt extender as AA didn't have one.
FYI, for the A319 with seat back entertainment the A/V boxes take some valuable leg room.
Be aware that there are two versions of the A319: the ones ordered by AA before their merger with US Airways have IFE screens and an AC outlet between the Y seats. All AA A319s have identical layout and seats, but the planes ordered by US Airways before the merger lack IFE and AC power outlets. I don't know how to tell which one you'll get prior to departure other than the AA-bought planes have swept-up winglets and the US ones have small bladed ones that extend above and below the wings.
There is no arm rest for the left arm, so its uncomfortable. But you do get massive leg room and two windows.
This was a flight from las vegas to philadelphia. The seat is listed as an exit row seat. Its actually just a normal isle seat but it feels better because the window seat has no seat in front of it. It just opens up the row a bit. The plane is that new version with a bathroom by the exit row. No tv
This first class seat is just fine. I would much rather bring my own device than stare at a tiny airline screen. BTW, my iPad case hangs perfectly in the upper magazine slot, yet, i can move it anywhere i desire. There IS a power outlet - in the center console storage. Best power arrangement as can have plugged in device during takeoff/landing w/o cords blocking egress. An efficient layout
On A319 AA1709 on 2/8/2018 from phx to sjc Under seat area is obstructed, and legroom is restricted
I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of this seat. It was a little wider than a comparable seat on a 737, enough wider that it made a real difference in my comfort. I also had plenty of legroom. I will be seeking out this aircraft for future flights.
The windows were offset. I had to either lean forward or look back to see out a window.
1-F is very pleasant. The small 1st class seems to have enough overhead space, even if full, as you board first, extra bags can go above the first rows of coach and someone will hand them to you. Leg room just OK but I can nap just fine in this seat.
When AA introduced the A319 a few years ago I thought it was horrible and said so on this site. They have been reconfigured with the same comfortable seats found in the latest A321s and are lights years better. I am 6-3, and even at 31" inch pitch they are satisfactory. I sprung for MCE on this flight and it was the most comfortable coach ride I have had in years. There is ample foot room and the seat back is high enough that it does not hit me in the middle of my neck like the MD80s when trying to recline. Seat engineers did a good job on these, thanks, AA.
