Flyer Reviews of the American Airlines


anonymous
does not recline because of emergency door, 16 inches of leg room here, god forbid an emergency we could not get out in time , couldn't use bathroom for 5 hours on flight to north Carolina from sea-tac armrest stuck in lowered position.....
[Seat 10F on a Airbus A321]

Long Legs? Get aisle seat. I actually enjoy the engine noise. It lulls me to sleep. Allows me to focus on the sound and forget the other sounds from the cabin. Babies crying, people chatting all fade away with the engine noise.
[Seat 17B on a Embraer RJ145]

The seat was too small, arm rest kept digging in my left side next to window. Great leg room , but when the person in front reclines the seat is barely 24 inches in front of your face. If you are 5'6 or less it is an average seat with horrible pitch. I recommend more comfort. I hate to say it but the average size of people these days is not 5 ft 2 with hips smaller than 17 and a half inches and shoulders the same size. I have broad shoulders average height at 5ft 7and I felt like a sardine I was lucky the person next to me was small. Plus it doesn't help I have anxiety and fear of enclosed spaces. I had to double my medication before the plane took off. Widen the seats and for Christ sakes lengthen the seats give us some comfort.

For an economy seat, I found it surprisingly satisfactory, especially since the seat reclined enough for me to actually sleep for a while.
[Seat 28D on a Airbus A321]


seatlink
Decent seat but has some issues, legroom is restricted at this seat.
[Seat 37F on a Airbus A330-300]


seatlink
Definitely better seats to sit in, near the lavatory.
[Seat 1A on a Boeing 777]


seatlink
Good seat with some minor issues, no seat reclining in front of you; may have extra legroom; no underseat stowage; traytable in armrest means narrower seat; armrests do not move.
[Seat 20B on a Boeing 777-200]


seatlink
Can't go wrong with this seat, has extra legroom; no underseat stowage; near the lavatory; traytable in armrest means narrower seat.
[Seat 16D on a Boeing 777-300ER]


seatlink
This is a good seat to choose, has extra legroom; the seat in front does not recline.
[Seat 15C on a Boeing 737-800]


seatlink
Avoid this seat if you can... may have limited recline; near the lavatory.
[Seat 34C on a Airbus A321]
