For those with broad shoulders...16A and 16F are not "window" seats, per se. They are, in fact "bulkhead" seats, in that they have NO window. I am generally not a window seat taker, but there wasn't much left on a full flight from DCA to PHX on Memorial Day Weekend, so I had grabbed what I thought was a decent MCE window seat. When I boarded, I was more than unpleasantly surprised. So was my row-mate, who had to deal with the issue as well, since my right shoulder now infringed substantially on his seat as well. One of the most uncomfortable 4.5 hour flights I've had the displeasure to take. Shame on AA for failing to make clear this rather significant shortcoming.
I paid extra for this seat! Never again. The exit door in front of you gives you less space, not more. There is no place to put anything in front of you and there is no overhead space as there is video equipment there. There is no tray table at all. The person in the seat next to me commented that I had the smallest seat on the plane to which I had to agree. Should never have to pay extra for less!
Good seat. Older plane, but seat was comfortable for coach. 12E is next to a large exit door with a tiny window at the top (no real window). Exit door comes out to about 6 inches next to this seat. Over 3 feet of legroom (it's HUGE). Seat DID recline slightly and the right armrest is normal, so unlike 12D, this seat only has the width slightly narrowed by one fixed armrest. You CAN use the under seat storage under the row in front of you. The 3+ feet between you and the seat in front makes a long flight less claustrophobic.
We flew this plane from Kona to Phoenix expecting lie flat seats as advertised. Our 757 - 200 plane was the domestic version with recliner seats if you can call them recliners. Barely reclined, not even close enough to sleep comfortably. As this was an overnight flight leaving at 11:34 pm really expected to sleep. Not very happy with American after spending the money to fly First/Business. They need to have better explanation of planes used.
Flew overnight from KOA to PHX. Expected lie-flat or near lie-flat seats for first class, as well as individual screens after a wonderful flight out in first on a 777. GOT NEITHER. Seats reclined only about 10 or 15 degrees, very uncomfortable for trying to sleep. One tiny screen for each side in first and volume was either too high or too low (couldn't sleep so why not watch TV). Perfectly adequate for 3 hours or less, terrible for overnight / 5+ hours.
No power. No internet. A dinosaur of an airplane. Seats & crew are nice though
I was actually pleasantly surprised by the overall comfort of this aisle seat on my long PHX-OGG flight. I'm 6'3" and 225 pounds and I thought there was adeuate legroom and personal space even in a regular coach seat. And more importantly, there was GREAT cushioning in both the seat bottom and back. And that is no guarantee anymore (My back was numb on a later UAL flight). I had an empty seat next to which helped but I was very happy that AA has not destroyed the comfort of this plane in the name of saving a few pounds.
