CommentsThere are three slightly different versions of the MD80 plane in American Airlines' fleet. They are often substituted for one another.
Remember FEBO (Front Even Back Odd), as this is AA's 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.
Be aware that the seats behind the emergency rows have slightly reduced pitch, as well as being noisier as the engines are mounted in the back of the plane next to the fuselage.
