This is the dreaded Oasis config. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. They've shoved an additional 12 seats into this aircraft at the expense of personal space and passenger comfort. The lavs are too small to turn around in, the seats are thin and hard and your butt WILL be asleep on flights longer than about an hour. First class under seat storage is non-existent. You will NOT be able to fit anything beyond a very small purse under the seat in front of you. If it's an AA 737-800 and the first row number number start at 1 rather than at 3, this is an Oasis config. Run away. Quickly.
Plane had the new interior. Large overhead bins were nice. My seat was in an exit row so leg room was adequate. Armrests are very narrow but allow for a wider seat. Good tradeoff in my opinion. Bathrooms very small and both had lots of liquid on the floor. Not pleasant. Also seems like this plane could use another restroom. There was a line for the restrooms the entire flight.
Last Row of First Class in front of a non-existent Bulkhead was miserable. Much less knee room than other first class rows. Coach Bulkhead row right behind you risks children or sympathy animals being right behind your open seating. Seats are definitely less comfortable, thinner padding, etc. I pay for first class and these seats were not worth the price. Do not select Row 4 on this aircraft.
New seats in this plane 737-800, same seats as in new 737 MAX, in first class are EXTREMELY HARD even though they are wider. MUCH Less of a recline for 1st class seat EXTREMELY unconfortable especially for a long flight. Rest room TINY!!!
This seat is NOT for anyone broad shouldered. It is jammed against the fuselage forcing me to sit crooked and forces me to lean into the center seat about 6”. Go for the aisle!
Leg room is tight, but overall I think it's more comfortable than the old 737-800 configuration. Window and aisle seats no longer have IFE electrical boxes underneath the seats, although a small one remains under middle seats. The lavs are as bad as you've heard about.
No window or cutout, little shoulder room due to missing cutout.
This far back in the plane the window seats seem to have less leg room. It looks like the seats are angled slightly to match the curvature of the plane. In this seat the window frame matches up directly with your should. If you have broad shoulders this pushes you into the middle seat. Avoid windows in the rear on this plane.
