I'm happy AA is finally bringing new aircraft to these two routes as the 767's felt like they were 10 years past their prime. Just wish they would have gone with a Boeing product. Oh well! My first flight will be in Feb 2014 JFK-SFO. I think for once AA177 and AA18 will depart on time

JFK-SFO will still be all-767 in February.

I am in March. The worst part in business with the lay flat seats... do I want someone to climb over me or do I want to climb over someone. Ugh.

My rule is always take an aisle seat, if available. That way, if I need to (or want to) get up frequently, I don't disturb my neighbor. Upon boarding, I tell the window occupant that if they need to get up, they should not hesitate to give me a good shake if necessary to wake me. And some have.

I'm the opposite. I would rather do the disturbing than be disturbed It also helps that I am quite tall, so climbing over someone without touching their seat is pretty easy.

That and the chances of food/drink falling on you as they are passed over are much much lower.
