Comments

The Boeing 737-800 plane is configured with domestic First Class and Coach and is often used on routes to lower demand domestic destinations as well as parts of the Caribbean and Central America.

Remember FEBO (Front Even Back Odd), as this is American Airlines' way of taking meal orders in premium class based on flight number. For Even flight numbers, meal order is taken from the Front, and for Odd flight numbers, meal order is taken from the Back. Pick your seat accordingly if you want to ensure your meal choice.

The following is courtesy of the FlyerGuide Wiki

  • Business (Domestic First). Standard recliner seats with tray tables in the armrests and DC power at every seat. These seats are noticeably wider than the Business class seats on the MD-80. Overhead bins at the front of the cabin may not accommodate rollaboards 'wheels first' due to the curvature of the aircraft. One oddity is that these are actually the widest "Business Class" seats in AA's fleet (just a bit wider than the NGBC on the 777's).

  • Coach. Exit rows are excellent choices because of the extra legroom. Otherwise, the Coach cabin has standard seats.


  • Tip: Learn about American Airlines' unpublished benefit, called The Challenge - a fast track to elite status and upgrades.
