737 MAX 800s - THE REFRESH PROJECT


May 21, 2019

IT'S ABOUT TIME!  


American Airlines has gotten a lot of flak for the way in which they’ve been configuring their narrow body aircraft.


The 737 MAX planes were being  delivered with these new seats. 


As a result, American’s cabins are not only tighter, but the seats are also extremely uncomfortable. In particular, the new first class are much less comfortable than the old ones.


There are rumors that American will fix their uncomfortable new “Oasis” first class seats, given how unpopular they’ve been with passengers.


There are rumors that American is reconsidering their decision to remove TVs from narrow body aircraft.

AA has also been in the process of re-configuring the rest of their 737-800s 

with these less comfortable seats resulting in the seat count being increased from 160 seats to 172 seats.


Robert Isom, President of AA, has confirmed that it has suspended the 737 retrofit project and is putting it on hold until 2020.  


There has been speculation regarding American possibly reconsidering the strategy they’ve been using for a while:
