The center seats in both of those rows are Main Cabin Extra. Row 17 is only one row away from the lavs and the galley.

Take a look at aeroLOPA.

Also, when leaning my head to the side, will it be the window itself or the wall? It would be nice if there are pictures.
lsquare, did you complete your flight? Any comment on row 10.
Thanks

Hello all, new AA flyer with a flight from PHL to BCN flying the 787-800. I am 6'6 and 300 pounds and am trying to figure out the best seat for my wife and I. I see on some Youtube clips that seat 20 D is a bulkhead seat (more legroom) with a foldable armrest. I would much prefer that over a fixed armrest. Am I correct that that seat will have one moveable armrest? Thank you so much!

Baby Bassinets

Hello - I am traveling ZRH to PHL and back with a family of 4 + a newborn, and thus I am looking to ensure access to a bassinet seat. With infants, we typically opt for BA, as they allow seat reservations, but this time AA was necessary... Yet, AA seems to go to extreme length not to share where the bassinet locations are.
  • After speaking with 2 agents, both told me a consistent story - its airport control and they cannot see the map and the locations currently.
  • Yet, AeroLopa has bassinets in 10 DEH and 20 DEH only in economy.
  • During prior trips, agents in ZRH or PHL have given us a bassinet (it was not easy) in 10 ABC and 10 JKL, and none of these show up on AeroLOPA.
  • For my upcoming trip, row 10 looks booked but 20 is open. Would anyone have any info on whether row 20 DEH (in between 2 exit rows) might indeed have a bassinet set-up, similarly to 10DEH?
It is a bit crazy that in the era of fees and extra revenue, AA can't figure this out. I am literally offering to spend $ on seats, yet AA seems not interested.

Thank you for any help you could share!

Last two rows of economy on 787-800

Planning an international trip on an AA 787-800. Anyone have experience with rows 30 or 31, the last two rows of economy? These are two-across instead of three because of the curvature of the fuselage. Have heard there's a little extra room, and it would be nice to have a row to ourselves. Are the seats close enough to the windows to afford a decent view out? We are traveling with another couple, so grabbing those last two rows came up as worth checking out for the four of us. I'm aware the galley is nearby, but at least there are no restrooms in the back of this aircraft! Premium economy and Main Cabin Extra are probably not options for everyone on this trip. Thanks for any advice.

Curious about this as well...
