Very Quick Trivial Question...

I have flown on these aircrafts numerous times and usually choose to pre-book seats 33A and B, where the cabin narrows and goes to a 2-3-2 seating plan. I like these as the rear aircraft of the aircraft doesn't feel so crowded and usually where the spare seats are...

I was a little bored this evening  Smile and just been looking on seatguru.com and shows seats in economy in the front cabin (rows 8-19) offer 2 inches extra leg room. I have never sat in these seats and when walking through the cabin never noticed this increased pitch. I have usually found the legroom in rear cabin more than acceptable.

Can anyone with a knowledge of these aircrafts confirm this and if so is it worth considering one of these on my future flight in January?

Are the seats in row 21 by the emergency exit easy to get hold of or are they like other airlines reserved for their "Premium" passengers with Silver/Gold/Chairman Dividend membership? (I am a usual basic dividend member.)

Thanks in advance for your input and a Merry Christmas to all you A.netters!

The front coach cabin indeed has increased pitch. It's really the finest transatlantic coach product.

As for the Exit Row 21, it's supposed to be for Preferred members only until day of departure, but if you get a nice agent, who knows.  Smile Also, Row 8 with the bulkhead offers lots of room, but you don't get a full window. The bulkhead seats are usually reserved until day of departure for babies.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

I had 33b on the way to PHL, and had no problem with the leg room, and im over 6ft, only annoying thing was the toilet flush every so often

21ABGH are used for crew rest on transatlantic flights, and are not available to passengers.

Yes, without a doubt more legroom in the forward economy cabin. Done three round trips recently on US FRA - PHL - FRA and there is a difference. It's not so obvious when sitting upright but I felt a particular difference on the Europe-bound overnight flight when I reclined my seat. On all three flights the exit rows seats were blocked for crew rest and the bulkhead for families requiring bassinets. US is the only airline I've done transatlantic flights with. Comfortwise they are, however, very good although the cabin is very grey and a bit grungy. Food was always better ex-FRA. However, service-wise they've been very good with the odd member of crew being a bit hit and miss. I always think, though, that if you're nice to the crew, they're nice to you  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
