It was an uncomfortable 2.5 hr flight. This seat is an upgraded seat (you pay extra for) because it is an aisle seat that is closer to Main Cabin Extra. There was a metal bar that extended from the seat in front of me to the ground. This prevented me from being able to place my feet in a normal resting position on the ground while seated. I had to remove my small purse from under the seat in front of me in order to place my feet in a normal position. It was either that or tilt my foot awkwardly or rest it on my purse. I've never experienced that on a flight before and found it unacceptable. It seemed that most aisle seats were like this and IMO American should not charge extra for these seats. It bothered me that I paid extra and I do not recommend doing so. One is better off in a middle seat. The seat padding felt thin, hard and was uncomfortable for me. I'm 5'6", 135 lbs, and had about 1.5 inches of spare legroom. Even though I had some spare legroom I feel this was one of the most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. I do not recommend this seat and certainly don't pay extra for it.
