    AA CEO Making Envoy’s 175’s more confortable.

    American Airlines’ new economy product has already proved divisive. The interior of American’s Boeing 737 Max 8 offers seats with 30-inch pitch (the distance from seat-back to seat-back), which is less than prior configurations; no seat-back entertainment (there is satellite-based wifi, but you have to pay for it); and lavatories so small that passengers have been known to get physically stuck in them. There are just two lavatories in the aft of the aircraft—that’s two toilets for all 156 economy passengers—and the doors are known to trap flight attendants in the galley if they’re opened at the same time. (American Airlines flight attendants have complained).
    The configuration is not just being used on the new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircrafts, but being retrofitted onto some older American Airlines planes, as well. This is the product American Airlines intends to be offering customers on domestic flights for years to come.
    I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

    They are simply attempting to match their competition, which are the other LCC's like Spirit, Frontier and Allegiant. American is moving toward a product more in line with LCC's and away from Delta, United, Southwest and Jet Blue, the latter two of which although have no wide bodies, their comparative Domestic and International coach products are better. It's important for pilots to understand that as they not only are moving their product in that direction, but pilot compensation and QWL as well. Envoy's flow-thru is to a carrier morphing into the previous America West model in all respects.

    Not correct: (there is satellite-based wifi, but you have to pay for it)

    Passengers and Flight Crew will pay in other ways ...

    p.s. I like riding on the Crown Jewel in MCE seating.

    Make the 175s more comfortable? Easy. Stop the plane from constantly yawing left and right the entire flight.

    It's not just AA. It's the direction of the industry as a whole.
