By far the best seat in basic economy. Great legroom and having the seat hug the wall (as opposed to Boeing 747 seat 51 J which has a large gap between the window seat and the wall) allows for extra comfort.
This seat does not recline and the arm rests cannot be moved. I had an empty row for this flight, but could not lift the arm rests to enjoy the room.
Premium Economy set 16C is very comfortable. Lots of leg room and has a foot rest. Downside is you are sup post to get a warm towel and warm nuts on takeoff but cot a tiny bag of pretzels
This is a good seat with great leg room. It does however, as the review says, gets very cold due to the exit door. Grab extra blankets to wrap up in.
The seat map is a bit misleading because 4A is set further back (i.e. towards the rear) vis-a-vis 4D (whereas the seat map seems to show they are next to each other). Although that means 4A is in reality even closer to the lavatory and the galley, they are still a sufficient distance away so as not to become a nuisance. I slept very well throughout the flight. I find the mini-cabin (rows 3 and 4) to be better than the larger cabin. Although 3A would be better than 4A, I don't think 4A is any worse than 6A or 7A, for example. In other words, I wouldn't place 4A in the "yellow" category.
Very narrow seat. I'm 1.83m tall and legroom is extremely reduced to me. In case I decide to store my pillow in the seat pocket, well I would be stuck there. Another problem I always have with American is the seat width. I know I have large shoulders, fine, but in case I get a same size person (as It happened), we could barely fit. I strongly recommend to get an aisle, or main cabin extra.
First time on the 777-300ER and enjoyed the Premium Economy offering. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service on board and was able to get comfortable and enjoy the ride. The only disappointment was the inflight entertainment system, it does not have anywhere near the volume of programming previously available.
The seat is far from the airplane wall, so you cannot lay your body on the window. Also, it does not fully recline.
Main cabin extra seat and the extra room was noticeable. Restricted recline, same as all their seats. Padding was thin and relatively uncomfortable. The one quirky thing was the seat is slightly offset from the tray table, so you have to slightly angle yourself to use the tray. Still I would take this seat in a minute over regular coach. Also, I noticed that in the row ahead, 31 there was tons of legroom, but people were queued up for the lavs for a significant portion of the flight and some stood directly in front of those seats.
Great size seat, good food, good interaction with a fun cheeky flight attendant. I really enjoyed turning the seat sideways and watching out the windows as we descended along the California coast into LAX.
The exit door does reduce some of the space, but the trick is to put your roller board case down in front of you after take off. If you are travelling with someone, you can put it down horizontally (wheels facing the door) and both can use as footrest). This allows you to prop your feet up as a foot rest but more importantly, it keeps people from congregating in front of you so it is the best way to maximize space. The tray table is a bit low so when you are eating you must be careful about moving. The light from the bathroom is opposite so every time some one goes in or out it will shine in your face. On the 777-200 the bathroom was on the same side so light would not be a bother. All and all 31a and 31j are the only seats I fly on this plane in economy.
Coach on AA is a miserable experience, though seat 31A provides a little relief in the way of unlimited legroom. The exit slide on the emergency door bulges out into the space, but there is still plenty of legroom, and (unless the FA gripes at you) can use it as a "footstool" to put your feet up. The proximity to the galley and lav is somewhat annoying, but didn't cause any major issues. No window, though the window in 32A is easy to look through over you left shoulder. Still not a fun experience, but I guess it was worth the additional $ for the extra legroom.
Flew from LHR to Dallas in basic economy. If American Airlines could have got these seats any closer/tighter in basic economy they might as well have had you standing up. No leg room whatsoever, no width, crammed in. Most miserable 9 hours flight I have ever taken. I guess you get what you pay for! Upgrade or fly in an Airbus, much more comfortable.
Above 6A the airline has used the overhead bin space for emergency equipment, so there is no overhead bin space above this seat
Frequently fly this plane hkg-lax and hkg-dfw. My favorite business class seat and this is a big achievement as it easily beats singapore's, uniteds, deltas, turkish's long haul business class and ties with emirates and cathay pacific. Snacks are great and flight attendants really caring. We actually ran out of gas one time from dfw-hkg and had to stop at narita
Overhead locker above seat has what appears to be oxygen so not available fir luggage storage.
Just finished a turnaround MR to HKG on the 77W both ways. I am BIG--6'5' and 300 so room is a must. seat cushion length is great (compared to JL and CX where it seems short) blanket and amenities are nice; food MUCH improved over coach; Sort of nice having a semi-dedicated bathroom at front of cabin. Came back via DFW--16E--exit row but in the four abreast section. I had horrors of this seat, but it wasn't bad--more leg room than I would ever use..easy egress and ingress. Crew much more friendly and very pleasant, proactive and service-oriented. The other rows had more legroom but seemed rather cramped, still. People had to climb over others, so not sure I would do those rows

Unlimited legroom; no problem with bathroom lines or use; leg rest wasn't useful--due to leg length and not AA's fault.;seat cushion length is great (compared to JL and CX where it seems short) blanket and amenities are nice; food MUCH improved over coach; Sort of nice having a semi-dedicated bathroom at front of cabin.

For the extra dollars and assuming not upgrade available, a great product
Strong smell from bathrooms behind row 19. Also row 19 does not recline as much as row 16,17 and 18.
The seat has no window, but for an overnight flight, the extra legroom is fantastic. You can sleep well against the wall. You have it as a red seat. I would tell you that it is a green seat.
