FromSt Louis - Lambert-St. Louis International (STL)
ToWashington, DC - Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
The aircraft was very new and clean inside with comfortable leather seats. I really enjoyed the adjustable upper head rest which made it easier to fall asleep. The cabin was relatively quiet in comparison to older aircraft models. My only complaint was the size of the overhead bins, it was a little difficult to fit a normal regulation size carry on into the smaller than normal compartment. I would love to fly on this model and type plane again in the future.

ToSarasota, FL - Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ)
The seat was a bit lacking in padding but for the time spent in air it was OK. The headrest can be moved upwards if desired. The seat did not recline, not sure if by design or if it was broken, but this was not a big deal even though I am 6 feet tall. Cabin noise was acceptable, normal levels for this type aircraft.

FromBogota-Eldorado International (BOG)
ToDallas, TX-Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW)
The pitch in the Main Cabin is 30", which is below the standard seat pitch. Seat width is 17.7 inches, which is above the standard seat width. Recline is 4", which is about standard. Entertainment was excellent. Service and food was good also.

FromLos Angeles-Los Angeles International (LAX)
ToAtlanta, GA-Hartsfield-jackson Atlanta International (ATL)
The economy seats are tight at 30 inch pitch. I am 5.10 and it was very uncomfortable after about a hour.
Service was ok But beverages only. These are new seats and aircraft so they are very clean and well kept.
My seat cushion was already out of line and added to the discomfort.

FromMiami-Miami International Airport (MIA)
ToPanama City-Tocumen International (PTY)
Esa aerolínea es excelente pero los asientos son muy incómodos, porque yo mido 1.82. Su puntualidad es buena. Siendo clase economica, no brinda comidas solo bebidas. Ojalá en el futuro, los pasajeros deberían recibid comidas.

FromOrlando-Orlando International (MCO)
ToChicago-Chicago Ohare Intl (ORD)
Tickets were very cheap (American Domestic is becoming very aggressive in their pricing). Flown on a very new 2nd Configuration plane, featuring the Boeing Sky Interior, new seats, and a nice IFE + expensive WiFi with good selection. I found the new interior to be well made, functional, intuitive, relaxing, and generally much better and updated than the older 737 NG. However, the seats were a big letdown. They were very stiff, with barely any cushioning unlike the older style. Even though the flight was just ~3 hours, I left the plane with a badly aching back. Recline was poor for row 13 specifically, but forgivable due to location in front of exit row. In addition, the electronics box underneath the seat meant you couldn't keep your legs straight. Distance to the seat in front (I'm 5'8") was very close. More and more airlines are squeezing as much profit as they can by slimming the seats and compacting them together. IFE and windows were dirty, with some sort of drink staining them. This was partially forgivable on a chaotic Spring Break flight, but not completely. Drinks were served shortly after takeoff, no snacks without charge. Attendants and flight crew were slightly rude, but the gate staff were very pleasant and understanding. Generally, the experience wasn't the best, mostly because of the rock hard seat backing (like most lower cost carriers) but I've seen much worse and I am appreciative for their basic services and amenities (like cleaning the airplane), as well as acceptable standards, when opposed to a carrier like Spirit.
By the way, the "New AA" is really just them changing their logo and their paint, as well as updating some of their fleet with newer, more cramped seating.

FromBoston-Logan International (BOS)
ToPhoenix-Sky Harbor Intl (PHX)
Had a connecting flight from Boston to Phoenix via Dallas Fort Worth. Sat in seat 6e on both legs of the flight. Seats were great for me as I was traveling alone with just a carry-on. Having the last row of first class is nice as no one behind you pulls on your seat back when they get up. First leg crew allowed all passengers to use the one forward rest room which was annoying especially since one passengers must have used the facility 8 times. Second leg kept the curtain up and did not allow passengers in the forward cabin. Food was OK at best but service was very good. Warm peanut selection on second leg was really nice. The wifi access was nice but an additional cost the passenger.

FromDallas, TX-Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW)
ToLouisville, KY-Louisville International (SDF)
Unbelievably noisy. No tray table here and no underseat storage for this seat. It was either too hot or too cold in the plane. Most uncomfortable seat I've ever had. Back still hurting this morning. Lots of leg room because there was no row in front - backed up to 1st class curtain.6 gate changes and was 3 hours late getting home. HORRIBLE trip.

FromChicago-Chicago Ohare Intl (ORD)
ToBeijing-Beijing Capital Int. (PEK)
I flew from ORD-PEK in business class. The service was good, but it's business class so I was able to expect more. The seats are really comfortable and I slept really well, I like the angle lie-flat seat better than the flat bed seat. The entertainment is good, wider screen than in economy and more options. The food on both flights were great. If I was able to choose business class or first class I would probably choose business class.
