Avail most of sched doesn't seem to have min. stay. That's $600-900 less than Norwegian Premium on the same route. Note that this comes up on Google Flights as "Book with Travel Agent" which I had thought was suspect but someone on another thread said it works. YMMV. I will keep looking for J.

This will be on a crappy old nasty 777 where the seat is like regular economy. Do yourself a favor and avoid at all costs.

There's a good chance it will be crappy and old, but the seat will be 38" pitch and 18.5" wide.

On the A380 and 787 you are correct. On the 747 and 777 it may as well be.

Good deal for racking up EQM and EQD for AA fliers.

Looks like SFO=>LHR is viable too. Both on VS and BA, which are flying 787s and A380s on the route respectively.

BA eg. https://goo.gl/flights/hB4m

^ Has a "Call American to book" entry.

VS eg. https://goo.gl/flights/krbr

^ Has a "Book with Delta" entry.

You can get the price at ba.com, despite the Google link saying it's higher.

Just AA on the DFW-CDG route. Everyone else sells those seats as premium economy.
