Flight 809 from Philly to Tampa was originally supposed to be an Airbus A320 however AA delayed the flight for 2 hours and apparently changed the aircraft to this one. 5D is supposed to be MCE & I paid extra for it because being a 5' 10" fat guy with bad knees the extra legroom always helps. Well that was a mistake. 5D is facing the bulkhead and extra legroom is non-existent. I will never choose this seat again on this aircraft.
This seat is awful. There is indeed plenty of legroom, but this is the narrowest seat I've ever flown on. Combined with the lack of power outlets and IFE, plus the constant stream of people using the lavatory, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever taken and I can't believe I paid extra for it.
Tightest seat you can imagine. I am 6'3" but other planes fit me OK. My knees where in the seat in front the whole trip. The entertainment display is nice but the closed caption feature didn't work so I couldn't watch movies.
Had to lean forward to see through the window
This seat has an insane amount of legroom and there is floor storage in front. However, recline is extremely limited.
I hadn't flown in a LONG time and was worried about flying at my size. I'm of average height (5'5'') but above average width! Plus size gal here (24w). The flight was SFO to CLT and I honestly don't know how I could have been any more comfortable. I did luck out and there was no one next to me, but still. Great seat.
The legroom is ok, but I'm glad this flight was only an hour and some change. The window alignment for this seat is also the worst I've encountered.
Always nice to have first dibs on these seats as a status AA member. The jumpseat in front of 10F is actually facing backwards, unlike the seat map. Enough leg room for even the tallest person, though you have to store your bag in the overhead bin.
Pretty disappointing seat. Plane is old and has no power outlet or entertainment system. I can do without entertainment on a 4.5 hr flight, but no power outlet or USB???? Cmon. Also, leg room is quite limited for First Class. Next time Ill save the money and sit in an exit row in Coach.
This is one of the best economy seats on any domestic airline. There is no seat in front of you, so you have about 8 feet of legroom, and there's room to store your personal item under the seat 2 rows in front of you. There's a small upgrade fee, but less than to upgrade to MCE. On the whole the A321 is one of the nicer and more up-to-date planes in the AA fleet, but AA's economy product still lags behind Delta and JetBlue with no power ports and far more limited in-flight entertainment.
This version of the 321 is the "newer" plane verses the one they fly LAX-CLT which is thier 1980's version. Seat is showing it's wear and tear. Bulk Head seat has very little leg room so this row should show in red. FA did bare minimum on what should be a signature flight. Food was tasty but very limited. I would recommend Hawaiian Air if going to the islands as they do a much better job on the routes.
Giant electronics box here for non-existent seatback IFE.
There is an installed box the restricts the under seat storage
Flew this plane from CLT to LAX. This plane is missing IFE (Inflight Entertainment) and even bringing your own tablet you have to either download the IFE app or have the AA app on your phone or tablet to access the plane's entertainment. Download you're entertainment beforehand or bring a big book. This seat is your typical economy seat, uncomfortable, small, and cramped beyond belief. The flight crew were good, gave me a couple of free cocktails due to taking so long to serve drinks and snacks. Apologized for the wait and service which was nice. My best suggestion is to download the AA app on your phone or tablet. It gives you up to date information on everything from flight status, boarding pass, and checked luggage status.
The width on this seat has to be 14-15 inches ... it is incredibly tight. They shrunk the seats down to make sure the exit door opens. Supposedly, this is a Main Cabin Extra seat. Even though I'm Premium on AA and get Main Cabin Extra for free, I can't imagine if I had paid for this seat. When attendant offered for anyone to move out of the exit row, I almost took the offer. In all seriousness, it could be the worst seat I've ever been in. I think a middle seat at the back of the plane would be better. Throw in no power anywhere. It ranks up there with worst flight ever. Glad it was a 1.5 hour flight. Some of the reviews tell real tales of torture. No more A321 for me.
I paid extra for this crappy seat. Beware, does not recline and very close to the seat in front
23D (and 23C) are terrible and shame on AA for selling them as "extra room" exit row seats. Not only are they the same leg room as the rest of economy, the seats are narrower due to them having tray tables in the armrest unnecessarily. I'm 5'9" and my knees had about 2" of room
Seat 23A is NOT a Main Cabin Extra (MCE) seat. While it has extra leg room due to no seat directly in front of it, AA markets and sells the seat as a Preferred Seat. The cost for the MCE seat in the exit row in front of me was $71. Seat 23A cost was only $31. The same applies to seat 23F across the aisle.
Seat does have storage under the seat in front of you (way in front of you). It is nice and ope to the right for people with broad shoulders.
I was in 31F on an American Airlines flight to Philly from Tampa and this seat is a perfect window seat.
