ORD-FRA-ORD equipment change after April 9

I was checking seat assignments on a May flight to FRA and noticed that a 777 will be put on the route in place of the 767. It looks like April 9th is the last ORD-FRA run of the 767 (according to AA.com today). Make sure you check your seat assignment, especially those in coach who can nab row 31.

And those in J who want to avoid a middle (or use VIP/miles for F upgrade).

Is it suites or coffins?

This could be good news for upgrade hopefuls (more seats).

And bad news to those who find the 777 J service to be mediocre.

The seat map shows suites, but my experience is AA can change to coffins the day of the flight. (I summize there are numerous threads as to why AA changes these at the last minute, but haven't performed a search for the answer yet.)

Good point.
Lowered "great" to "good". My focus was at least slightly better odds of not going transpond in Y.

As for service, I've "usually" had better on the 763, almost a F kind of experince, yet it seems in both planes it's also pretty dependent on the FA's involved.

AA has surplus 777, Looks like they found a use for one.
