Airplane McDonnell Douglas Douglas MD80 (M80) American Airlines with 3 classes and 140 seats on board. Use airplane seat map to find which ones are more comfortable and which should be avoided.
the seat was pretty comfortable with good leg room however the seat was starting to show age and the cabin was outdated but not too bad for a 1hr 30min flight there was an interesting view of the engine that you don't get on most aircraft with that said the back is very noisy which can be bothersome. Also, the row is across from...
3A has the least Legroom in the first class cabin on this bird due to the bulkhead position. The bulkhead seats across the aisle have far more leg room than 3A and 3B. That said, as a 6'6'' man I was still reasonably comfortable on this 2 hour jaunt from CMH to DFW. Contrary to other commenters, I found the seat itself to be qui...
Does not recline
very noisy but you get 2 windows
I have been on several MD80s in the past. The American Airlines version of the plane was a complete disgrace. The safety brochure said it was rehauled in 2013. That is a complete example of fake news. The seats were upolstered like they were back in the 90's. The plane cabin "looked" like it was from the early to mid 80's (I cou...
This is a bad seat. 12b in front has a large chunk of electronic gear under it. That would be bad, but the cowling is broken as well. You will have no place for gear and feet
Really enjoyed my flight. Seat was adequate enough for a 30-minute nap, and a 90-minute movie (on my MacBook).
My wife and I had seats 7A&B, on AA flight. Definitely prefer these seat to any other on this plane, of course excluding first class seating. My wife and I are on the short side, 5'5" & 5" so legroom was not an issue. The food beverage service was lacking
15A was extremely comfortable. I am roughly 5'4'' and loved the seat. The view out the window was unobstructed. All in all this is an older aircraft and they do make some weird noises, however when it comes to comfort, I would take this over a 737 any day.
Seat can't recline, bulk head is right behind seat
This was a short flight and full. I booked the flight at last minute and didn't have much of choice. Overall, seat was comfortable though noisy due to proximity to galley but short flight so not bothered by it. No power in seats/no entertainment. I believe these planes will be retired in 2017.
One of the best seats I've been on. A great view of the wing and a decent view of the engine. Window alignment is an A+. Luggage space and leg space is at around a solid "B", depending on the size of your luggage. Engine noise is also somewhat outstanding, though if you want improved engine noise you can go further back.
This seat was fine. Legroom was decent. Flight was fine. Flight staff was helpful and polite.
DFW to MSY on AA flight 1038. Good, comfy seat for a short flight. Seats in right side of first class section have more legroom. Seats 6E and 6F appeared to have more room for recline and a ton of legroom.
I flew on seat 22F from Chicago O'Hare to Detroit, which was quit a short flight (not even an hour) but inside the plane, I could not feel, that the plane was almost 30 years old. The board service was really good, but due to the short flight, the last rows, did not get time to drink their drinks, because the landing approach ha...
The noise from the enjine is LOUD. The overhead bins are only for Flight attendents. I don't mind American Airlines but never fly on an AA MD-80
There is no way that the seat pitch was 31/32 inches on this flight. I am 5'10 and my knees were against the backrest in front. Did not help that the person in front put his seat as far as it would go back ( and kept trying to push it further back)at take off and never put it back up until landing. Since they have restricted ...
Fantastic seat. 2 windows, great engine noise and great wing view. My autism was thoroughly pleased.
Seat was good, rather difficult to get pictures that included the wing unless you leaned forwards and twisted around, then you could get about the outermost quarter of the left wing. Service was good, nothing bad that I could tell.
I have flown this plane in FC endless times and it is a small, worn FC cabin with seats barely larger than coach and the recline is almost nothing, feels like a coach seat. 3D and F on the right side are a lot more roomier for bulkhead than 3A and B. This plane is far outdated and American really needs to get up to speed in gene...
