Travelling with minor. AA.com seat assignment page has warning on top that indicates that you cannot sit in exit row when traveling with minor under 15 years of age. Since that warning is displayed for business class page, I am unsure if any of the seats are technically exit row. Would not have thought so but the warning message has me question my intuition. I am currently seated in row 1 with my child.

Not to my knowledge. That said, when you selected your seat, did it display a popup asking you to explicitly acknowledge that you selected an exit row? If no, then should doubly be good.

Thanks for quick feedback. I was able to select my seat without issues. In hindsight I assume the warning message pops up because I have minor on my reservation and is not specific to business class.

Yeah, that's just the standard warning when selecting seats for reservations with minors.

As others have said, there are no J exits in the 789. Heck, I don't think ANY of the AA longhaul fleet has exits in any J cabins?

Closest I think of is some of the BA Club seats in the upper deck are exit row seats in J.

Other than that I don't think I've seen it anywhere else.

Yeah, and BA’s A321 lie-flats have exit rows, too.
