    AA removing F on 772s and 763s [762's?]

    American Airlines to refresh its wide-body fleet | Airline Biz Blog | dallasnews.com

    The carrier plans to take the first class cabin out of the 777-200 and the 767-300 aircraft. Only the 777-300ERs, a new long-haul international type that American begins receiving in the fourth quarter 2012, will have a first-class cabin. American intends to put more business-class seating in both the 777-200 and 767-300 fleet. The carrier estimates that the 777-200, which now has 247 seats, will go to 260 seats. The 767-300, which has 225 seats, will drop to 209.
    The business-class section will have lie-flat seats, and all seats will have access to an aisle.
    In the coach section, or main cabin as the carrier likes to call it, every seat will have a video screen and access to wide variety of programming.
    American will put the coach seating with extra legroom, which it calls Main Cabin Extra seating, on the 777s and 767s as it configures those aircraft.
    The carrier intends to offer satellite-based Wi-Fi on transoceanic Boeing 777 flights, to complement its ground-based Wi-Fi it is busily installing in its current fleet.
    The 767s, which are older and face retirement in the not-too-distant future, will not get the transoceanic Wi-Fi.

    It sounds like the J cabin is being upgraded to F standard, but being renamed as J.

    Domestic F is not going-but then it really is a J offering if you consider the hard product-in fact is called J if that plane does a Carribbean etc flight.
    I would imagine though that 3 class transcons will go-but this program is only due to start in 2014.
    Doesn't mean the sundaes will go.Though if the cost cutting in bankruptcy gets worse then.........
