"Now I'm trying to get back from Europe in March on saver economy, want to go to LAX. Only non-BA options are on AA"

Have you called AA to check award availability on TN's CDG-LAX nonstop? (I have no idea if TN's Economy Class is better, worse, or the same as AA's.)
I do. TN Moana Economy is IMO markedly worse than AA.

Seat pitch is miserable, the iirc cloth seats feel grungy, there's virtually no way to get an exit row, ground staff are largely unhelpful, hopeless and will occasionally lie to you; you'll feel very much like self-loading freight. Food is marginally edible - with some possibly inedible items to test you. This is if you get one of the refurbished aircraft, and there is, iirc, modest IFE.

On AA you can hope and work for better seating at check-in, and you'll be supported if the flight goes haywire.
