Literally none of this is correct.

actually Iíd like aa to invest in the a220. Ive seen reports on the delta experience on the a220 being one of the best aircraft in the DL fleet now and far better than e75s. The bathroom has a window for crying out loud like the 787. Sure wonít find that much space on an oasis aa plane

AA seriously looking at A220 presently. But, of course, the AA version will have it's own layout...

that would be great but given history will come up with a way to take what seems like an awesome aircraft and destroy it.

article I was thinking of was tpg. https://thepointsguy.com/reviews/del...0-first-class/

interesting read on what aa could do, but probably wonít.

Wouldnt it be going for great if aa put out superior aircraft and experiences vs DL especially given the age of aa craft are younger than DL

That's my point in response to:

The aircraft itself means very little in this context. DL does a whole other level with their non-stock interiors and innovative, attractive colors and materials, etc., etc.

You'll have to fly Delta if you want the Delta experience.

I havenít flown one of these yet, but can anyone answer why there is no space under the seat? What did they put down there, since thereís no IFE boxes?

This struck me as a particularly good run-down on the subject:

I received a call from AA yesterday for the stated purpose of asking me what I thought of flying AA as an EXP. When I started on OASIS, the questioner asked a number of follow ups and gave me the impression that I was far from the first EXP to complain about the experience and the seats,

I've switched to the window seats on these in F just so I have somewhere to put my backpack.

Are these oasis configured planes only at a certain hub? Can’t say I’ve seen one at DFW.

So while DL is putting in more spacious seats and bigger IFE, AA is busy reducing seat pitch and stripping all IFE. Sounds like a great move.

Iím EP, but my wife prefers JetBlue. We have 3 kids. The first Oasis flight will probably be my wifeís last. And Iíll start connecting thru Atlanta. Every AA flight, sheís asks if they will have seatback entertainment for the kids. Sheís feeling the stress of having to manage all the devices and batteries. She suffers with AA because I get us MCE, usually, but thatís hit or miss with those US planes where most MCE seats are exit row and my kids canít sit there.

Im sure theyíll reverse the decision, but only after shareholders fire Parker. That will be some time. Heís strategy is aimless. And heís eroding the brand. Someday, the BOD will realize that. Just like the goofballs running Hienz-Kraft.
