if you have followed any news reports,in order to accommodate cargo and use aircraft for that purpose,many airlines across the board are taking select large planes and taking out all of the seats and passenger type areas,with just basic bare floors and windows..they have to do something to keep the money coming in until passengers decide they are not afraid to fly..

The great thing about cargo flying is that no one ever complains about a rough landing (personally never had one of those, but I always shared legs with the F/O, so...). Nor did they complain about not having better food! And they never got drunk or disruptive!

When American put the seats back in they will add a row or two.

With American Airlines customer service at an all time low and pax unable to get refunds or flight credits coupled with abhorrent attitudes of employees it is just a matter of time before the boxes and pallets start complaining too.
