Alaska Airlines' 737-900 Bulkhead Row?

Hello,

My friend and I are flying from Orlando to Seattle in March, non-stop aboard an AS 737-900. I booked us in row-6 via their website, hoping the bulkhead would provide a tad more space for the long flight.

Is this row any more comfortable? I'm going to try to get exit-row seats the day of departure, but I was hoping the bulkhead row would be a good alternative.

Thanks,
Ryan

Yeah, it does have more room. If I were you I would request the $50 upgrade at the counter for first class. Makes the trip a little more enjoyable. But its a comfortable plane and airline, I think you will enjoy it.

Is the upgrade $50, or is it more than that? If it's $50 like on Delta, I'll be up in the front cabin for this trip  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks,

I think the upgrade is more than $50 because it's incremental...like $50 for every 1500 miles or something like that.

Paid upgrades at the airport are based on mileage, and the $50.00 upgrade is only valid on flights under 1250 miles.

SEA-MCO comes in at 2544 miles one-way, which is a $150.00 fee to upgrade.

Yeah, if you pay for an M-Class or higher ticket...rip off.

Not sure which fare-class I'm booked. Though, I got the ticket through an Expedia.com vacation package, so I'm sure it's pretty discounted.

Guess I'll make the best of the bulkhead!

Thanks,
Ryan

On AS, it doesn't matter what fare you paid...ALL revenue tickets are eligible for paid upgrades at the airport on the day of departure.

But again, since you're traveling such a long distance, it will be $150.00 one way, per person.

This may not make any difference to anyone, but a suggestion nonetheless. Alaska does have two different configurations on their 737-990's. One configuration, the newest, provides a Lav installed at row six (on the left ABC side) and a massive closet across (DEF side). The original configuration doesn't have these features (the extra lav is in the back). From my many travels on these -990s it would seem there is just a *little* more room on the DEF side, especially at the foot area if on a Mid Cabin lav equip'd bird.

Again we are talking a very *small* difference, but if given a choice ABC side or DEF side, I would choose the DEF.

Just a suggestion, enjoy the ride on this amazing bird....

Just FYI, I would not necessarily hold the seat pitch data at seatguru.com to be accurate as I have found errors in the past.

To add to Rydawg82:
Aircraft-N302AS N303AS N305AS N306AS N307AS...have no mid cabin lav
Aircraft-N315AS N317AS N318AS N319AS N320AS...have mid cabin lav

Any idea which aircraft I'll be flying on AS 009 on 11 March? It's probably too soon to find out, but from your knowledge (AS739x) you may have access to that info.

Thanks

According to the seat picker on AS's website, rows 6-31 are economy, and it is showing the 2 lav's to be at the rear of the plane.

The daily aircraft rotation is only set a few weeks in advance, and even then it's subject to change based on unforseen variables like mechanicals, weather, etc.

I was referencing the upgrade option on Delta, not AS, as clearly denoted in the italicized quote. I was clarifying and distinguishing the upgrade policies between the two carriers, not blurring them.

Which flight will be flown out of KMCO, morning or evening? EA CO AS is correct that we can not tell the A/C till the day before. The morning flight that is the red-eye inbound changes all the time. As of late the KSEA-KSFO-SJD r/t gets back to KSEA and flys the red-eye to KMCO. At that time of the evening though we have a few -900's the arrive in Seattle, so they can swap any plane to that flight depending on mx needs.

Flight 009 is the morning flight, departing MCO at 0800, and arriving into SEA at 1118 local.

TWA, I will be able to tell you the day before. Today it is the same plane that will fly out of MCO this afternoon flight 19. Then go to KSEA and turn around and come back. Ask me the day before and I will be more then happy to help.

I'm aware of that, but I wasn't talking to you. My comments on the AS upgrade policy were to JetboyTWA who was clearly asking about AS upgrades. He only referenced DL because he wondered if the policies were similar.

Does AS take a weight restriction on this route with the 739? I see that it is 2554 statute miles whereas the plane's range is 3159 statute miles. Also took a glance at the range performance charts on the 739 on Boeing's site and it looks real close on that trip, if the plane is heavily loaded. Just wondering.


Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Brons2....some days from what I hear yes. SEA-MCO seems to be on the edge of the restriction and pending weather enroute and/or SEA weather. SEA-MCO has no restrictions. I have noticed the MCO-SEA flight go out full many times this winter and I think as long as they can stay south of the jetstream it does ok. Summer seems to me more hit or miss with all the storms that pop up out of nowhere!
