American Airlines Announces B777-300ER Routes, Reveals Seat Map

American Airlines released the initial schedules for their Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, to be deployed on routes to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and London, England, later in the year. The new aircraft is American’s first new plane in some time, and American is the first United States-based carrier to fly the 777-300 aircraft.

Seating

American also loaded the seat map into GDS systems. A detailed breakdown of the new seats can be found here and here, and we’ve profiled some of the key numbers below.

– First Class: 1-2-1 configuration, rows 1-2 (aft of doors 1L/1R). 2 lavs.
– Business Class: 1-2-1 configuration, rows 3-4 mini cabin (forward of doors 2L/2R), rows 5-15 (aft of doors 2L/2R). 3 lavs.
– Main Cabin Extra: 3-3-3 configuration, rows 16-19 (row 16 is exit row, row 19 only has DEH (middle section) seats).
– Economy: 3-4-3 configuration, rows 20-44 (row 31 is exit row; rows 30-32 have only two seats on AC / JL side with galley in-between; rows 41-43 have only two seats on AC / JL side; row 44 has only DEGH seats). 4 lavs.

Seems quite tight down the back in Economy, but the 773s will be a significant improvement over the lax amenities currently available on American’s 777-200 aircrafts.
