Would avoid. Proximity to the lavatory in this instance is particularly annoying as (i) the odor does not make for a pleasant eating experience (or indeed flight experience full stop) & (ii) people will crowd your seat whilst waiting. The A332 overall is one of the better ships crossing the Atlantic but this seat is to be given a hard pass. Row 9 is where its at if you can get access to MCE.
great legroom, very comfortable seats
Light above seat does not get shut off during flight due to it being near the the galley - making cery dificuot to sleep
Flew from Madrid to PHL. This indeed not the flagship product, therefore less privacy, even in the window seat. However- This is a great plane with a great bussiness class product. The seat is wide and comfortable, the IFE has a lot of content, the food was great and the crew were wonderful. I had a solid 4.5 hour sleep. The Sundae is a MUST!! I would happily fly this plane again!
CLT-DUB This seat was a nice twosome for myself and my older mother. Far enough back in the plane to where the wing was quite further forward, affording a great view of the cloudless skies much of the way to Ireland. Seats were nice and padded, but really didn't recline that much. IFE was of the old touch screen variety, and while the content was fantastic, the hardware was slow and erratic. Like, you touch a movie, 3 seconds later, the screen responds. As always with the A330s, lots of overhead room, relatively quiet, and really comfortable.
I reserved seat 4A when I bought my BC ticket 2 months before my flight based on reviews from this site. The day before my flight when I checked in I found that American had changed my seat to 5C with no warning and no explanation. My seat 4A was taken by someone else. The foot rest section of 5C was broken, there are no partitions between center seats, and the people next to the windows kept them closed the entire time. 5C is a miserable seat.
Seat 25H is a Premium Economy seat with extra legroom. I purchased this seat for an overseas trip and was disappointed in the plane selection. There is no 110V power in this seat. The flight attendant told me there is no 110v power in any of the economy seats on this plane. The AA website does state there is power at every seat but the only power available is 5vdc USB power in the armrest. I was frustrated that both the AA website and SeatGuru were incorrect on this. Going to place a complaint with AA.com
I've flown this bird in biz but this was my first time in premium economy. I was very pleased given that I was essentially paying a coach price. I think row 6 is better than 7/8 because there is a footrest that fold out from under the seat and supports your legs rather than just something for your feet like a bus or train. Rows 7 and 8 have plenty of legroom but 6 has quite a lot. (I moved to an empty seat in row 8 just to see how it was different.) The headphone/power port IS difficult to access but it is usable once you know where it is. I'm an extremely cranky flier and I spent 5 1/2 hours in this seat very comfortably. Overall it's as good as a domestic AA first class seat (not that that's saying a whole lot). I seriously doubt I'll buy first class on this plane again; the price difference doesn't justify the seat difference.
Good seat. The width of the leg rest is slightly reduced due to screen storage.
I was upgraded to this seat and feared it would be regrettable due to the proximity to the galley. However, the forward galley really wasn't used so it was very quiet and low foot traffic up front. I was on a domestic flight (PHL-SFO) so this may different when the plane is on a TATL route.
I flew on this plane with the new premium economy seats in July 2018 and seats 8A and 8H do not have windows.
Sat in Premium Economy. Seat was wider and had great leg room. Only problem was the headphone port. It was situated in the very back of the armrest, preventing me from being able to plug it in. The flight attendant even mentioned the need to "be a contortionist." I wanted to see a movie but unfortunately could not due to this issue. But luckily I had a book with me so I just read. I had submitted a comment regarding this to aa.com so I wonder if they fixed this problem. So if you are in Premium Economy, bring a book or your own tablet for entertainment in case you cannot access the jack.
