Same seat, the Rockwell Collins Meridian. 30”pitch on AA, 32”on WN. I don’t recall if WN has the mini-lavs, suited to the Keebler elves, in their 7M8s. AA originally proposed 29” pitch for the 7M8, and AA 787-8 coach seating has gone 150 to 160 and now 172. Note WN has no first class cabin, and has 172 seats in their -8 cabins. Under Project Oasis, this coach seating will be extended to all 737s and A320 family aircraft.

It’s not the aircraft type - BA has all J seating in their transatlantic A318s, Iberia has the nice Business Plus in their mid-haul A319 - it’s what the airline chooses to do with the cabin interior. AA has gone from MRTC 34” in coach to MSTC - More Sardines Throughout Coach - because it’s truly “Going for great”. But all other factors being equal I’ll choose WN coach and more flexible ticketing if it’s a straight coach choice.
