American Adding New Business Class Seats

Good news if you fly trans-Atlantic on American Airlines:  The carrier has completed installation of new business class seats on one of its aircraft and will overhaul the seats on all of its 767-300s and 777s by next year.  The new seats are 20 inches wide, recline to a 9 degree angle and have video-on-demand.  A spokesman says that these new seats can’t be matched by other carriers.  Which is true, except that it’s not.  A whole bunch of international carriers (and Eos) have fully lie-flat seats, as well as video on demand, and some have wider seats (Virgin) and longer seats (Virgin and others).  So while any improvement is good, this won’t match much of the existing business class trans-Atlantic seating that’s out there now.
