There is very small Room between seats. Not like US airlines in general.

Great timing servicing drinks and dinner and breakfast, very comfortable first 10.5 hours flight.

The only negative was having to pay extra to select your seat in advance.

The check in process was not good. Having a domestic flight on American Airlines created a problem with checking in and we therefore weren't able to select the seats we wanted. For add much as we paid I was very disappointed. The flight from San Francisco helped make up for it as the staff was amazing and the plane and seat very comfortable.

Everything was good

Seats were tight! very tiring for a 10.5 hr flight. Food was good! Flight attendants were friendly! Some turbulence but overall an okay experience.

Going to London on Virgin fine. Returning I will have to make a claim of return prepaid seats for 3. We got to our prepaid window seats and there was particles of vomit around the TV and on the wall. There was spot cleaning on rug. It smelled really bad and we couldn't tolerate sitting in those seats for 11 hours. We had to relocate to middle seats in the back of the plane. Those seats were fine but not at the window that we paid for. I would like to request our payment be returned. Thank you, Maureen Lynch

All staff was great. Laura in particular stood out as examplary. I was not pleased, however to find that the seat ‘upgrade’ I paid for meant I couldn’t move the armrest (I was with a child who needed to sleep) and that I couldn’t have a screen out during taxi, takeoff, and landing. Seems like a trade-off more than an upgrade

While people and service were great, seats in upper class are quite uncomfortable for me. I will likely avoid when possible

Our flight crew seemed a little burned out, short when serving us but the service was timely and frequent
