Having spent a few hours on a QF 738 in J PER-MEL-BNE,the same plane,I feel the premium cabin seating on an AA 738 is definitely more comfortable than QF.
All right AA calls theirs F but it is usually cheaper than QF J for similiar distances.

I'm pretty sure they have a more generous seat pitch on AA F which makes a big difference.

I checked that 'cause I thought the same thing... it definitely feels more spacious. Seatguru doesn't though - saying they have a 37 inch pitch for most of their narrow body fleet (one 737 type has 40-42 inch pitch).

Maybe it's the type of seat, padding or the length of the seat pan that differs?

Paging @TonyHancock

It is a LCC but not low cost to the passenger.
BA should have done what QF did with JQ and a lot of other airlines.
They did try it with GO Fly - but I can't remember what happened to it.

Reading this made my day! 🤣

He is certainly progressive as far as airline CEO go. When everyone else dumped their routes due to the pandemic last year, he added more routes. Check out his interview with Sam Chui - interesting, and he even laughed once.
