@K1 the middle departure of the 3 on AA is now the 777-300. The late departure is a refurbished 777-200. Both with avod and much nicer seats. Just avoid the 767's if you're in coach.

International? Canada / Mexico?

AA is the worst. Why would you fly them if you have a choice?

Why are you flying coach? Firm policy is business on overseas.

UK, wanted to use my miles

It was personal travel p2

OP - you should've looked for the 777-300 flights. Wifi and personal screens.

So bad. I don't think I can fly the ORD-LHR route again. Shittiest planes
