Leg room is nice but the aircraft lining encroaches on your shoulder space. Good for people without broad shoulders
3 hour flight from DFW to PHL. Seat was easily adjusted to be lay flat and I was able to doze off easily. 2 available AC power connectors per seat: one in front where tablet holder is and one immediately behind your head. WIFI system did not work for the flight - could not even watch entertainment.
The seat recline of row 16 (16A to F) is not only restricted, it is nonexistent, these seats don't recline!
Not having the personal Entertainment system in First Class is a drag. On board Wifi never works. So don't forget to download movies you want to watch ahead of time in any class. Terrible decision by AA to get rid of their Entertainment system and only rely on overhead TVs.
I thought this was a very comfortable seat between Dublin and JFK. It reclined to a full bed, although I agree if you are on the inside you will have to step over the person on the outside if they are fully reclined to get out of your seat. My wife and I were traveling together so this was not a problem.
good seat- flew JFK/DUB/JFK( but 757 should be used on short haul flights/-AA uses also 757 on the CDG run).Good leg room-close to toilet-
Horrible flight ever. Old plane with TV screens hanging from the ceiling so no personal entertainment. Row 14 has NO BINS to use because they decided to store equipment there. Supposed to be MCE but I couldn't tell the difference from regular economy. Row 14 is also one row back from the exit row so the config is different. I would avoid this plane if you can.
I paid to have this seat and moved. This seat is almost 3" narrower than 18E and 18F in the same row, not sure why. Fortunately, seat 19D remained open and I was able to move back a row. The guy in 18F moved over when I left and said, "This is a tiny seat!" and moved back to his window seat. My husband who was in 18C was stuck with his.
Was surprised at the pitch of the seat, About the same as United premium economy.Plenty of legroom. I did have a window and could keep an eye on the engine. Food was OK. Got a pillow and blanket and got to sleep a few hours.
Wasnt looking forward to this flight as it was on an older, single aisle aircraft with overhead screens rather than in-seat entertainment, so booked Main Cabin Extra. Well worth it, the plane looked recently refurbished, the seat pitch was great (Im 61) and the cabin was quiet. I didnt choose Exit row (10) as I though passengers might congregate at the toilet are but as the flight was quite this didnt seem to be an issue
I flew DFW-LIM and was assigned this seat. Below it were the lifeboats, the only place to move my feet and legs was towards the front. It had limited recline despite the fact that it was not the last row. Please, be careful when you are assigned to this seat.
I flew on this 757 LIM-DFW October 2017 The seat's storage was not great. On the positive side, The bed setting was comfortable enough for me to get a few hours sleep with three couples with babies in business class. Overall the service and seat was average.
Flew in 2D from AMS to Philly. Seat very comfy (lie flat), table movie system worked great and charged just fine after I fiddled with the adapter to ensure completely plugged in. Tablet of course then worked for entire flight. The tablets are gathered about 30 min prior to landing so I couldn't finish my movie - a very minor part. Food and flight attendants simply great! The main bother is the person in the window seat has no aisle access. This means when they need to get up, the aisle seat must be either uprighted or stepped over. What a nuisance for both patrons on an 8+ hour flight. Seat is narrow and space not excessively long so that could be a problem for some people if they are above average height or width. Not too much storage but I was glad to have access to universal adapter and USB slot. Overall I would fly this plane again but I will say I don't fee it is a good value at 135,000 miles for BC.
Business class in this plane is AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL! Old plane, old system, no built in TV! They give you these ridiculous Samsum tablets that don't seem to hold the charge- even when they are plugged in using that huge charger- and they end up dying before you finish watchingyour movie. Movies loaded im the tablets are old, I had seen all of them. BE CAREFUL WITH LOSE ITEMS: my cell phone was in my purse inside a side pocket that closes with a magnet. Eveything flyes off the compartment area during take off and my cell ended up underneath the seat. They called these seats the black holes because you can't retrieve anything that dissapears there. We had to wait for maintenance to come and find it after we landed. They are aware of this but they forget to mention it before taking off. Horrible, horrible flight!
MCE SEATS ARE AWFUL! BUSINESS SEATS ARE AWFUL! Old nasty aircraft with CRT monitors- give me a break!
The seatguru info says that these business seats are angle flat seats. However, they are in fact fully flat. i just flew this from la paz to miami the other day. AVOD for this plane, however, is absolutely primitive. they hand out tablets for you to watch movies, and it didnt work half the time.
The recliner was broken, my husband had to sit upright from Paris to JFK. His sound on the entertainment system also did not work. Food was terrible. Do not order the steak, couldn't cut it with a chain saw.
Awful seat. Tight fit. good leg room but tiny tray table which was hard to get in/out of the side. Did not recline.
American is changing the business class seats. The new seats have no entertaiment system, they have a space for a tablet (provided in most flighs, had one of six hours that they had forgotten them) and also the bose noise cancelling headphones. New seats are full flat and are face slightly tothe side with a small otoman in front. New seat control has less options but works well enough. So far the seats seem to bemore confortable than the old ones and the tablets havebetter definition. I added pictures FYI.
Constant jostling by staff a nd passengers. Had to stand waiting for boarding to complete. One third of the seat corresponding to the portal for jet way. This is one of the worst layouts for an international flight across the pond. Overcharged prices with a cattle car of a configuration. Aboid this plane and american airlines if you can. Btw. No screens on headrests. I guess they assume everyone has an ipad.
