Hello,
I will be flying DL from BRU to ATL in November on a 767-300ER and want to know the best seats that can be prebooked in economy for two passengers. Have tried and failed to prebook seats on row 15 (crew rest) and 21. Are the middle three seats in row 18 having any extra legroom? Do the seats in row 20 really have no recline? Would be grateful for any info on my best options here - and no, my company will not pay for business class!
Many thanks

any of the exit seats are good seats. Also bulkheads aren't so bad. Check out Seatguru.com You iwll get a TON of info there, but make sure you call teh airline and double check.

Thanks for the speedy reply. Unfortunately, none of the seat guru recommendations are available in advance and i don't have a DL number i can ring in my neck of the woods - hence i was hoping to chance upon some kind DL agent surfing this site to supply the wanted info.

Sorry about that.

It is true. No recline.

Maybe a little bit more room but you have to store your bag in the overheads which may be blocked by the projector for the IFE.

Do you hold premium status with any SkyTeam carrier? If so, call DL directly to attach that number and then you should be able to get some of the preferred seats to open up for you.

Thanks for your feedback people - seat guru pretty much confirms what i thought looking at the seat map in the res system - any seat worth having (exit seat) is only gonna be given out at check in, unless i suddenly manage to magically get a premuim DL frequent Flyer card  Smile I'll take my chances with the bulkhead and suss out the best seat for the return overnighter across the pond on the way out to ATL.
Cheers.

In economy on DL? There are no good seats. Get an aisle so you can stretch at least one leg. Bulkhead seats won't let up the armrest but better than other seats. Then you're so close to Biz Elite that you'll cop an attitude!

Oh yeah, I forgot to say that the armrests don't move on the bulkhead seats. Exit rows are the same way I believe but I think seatfuru.com mentions that. Hope you have narrow hips otherwise the bulge for the headphone jack will leave a bruise in your thigh.

Ive always sat on the right 2x side of the aircraft (right as walking toward the rear). Ive found these to be good. I prefer to have only two seats, and if they is two of ya, works perfect, one gets window, other gets aisle. Stear clear of the exits (not emergency, the main doors) as it gets a tad chilly.

Delta is pretty bad in coach but darn good in business. I once flew ZRH to ATL and was trapped in the window seat by some fat hog in the aisle seat. When we landed I could not feel my right leg...9+ hours of sitting with one inch of leg room will do that to you :>
Truth be told, Delta has an old tired product, with old tired people running the service. Too bad, but those are that facts (imo).

Hello,
I will be flying DL from BRU to ATL in November on a 767-300ER and want to know the best seats that can be prebooked in economy for two passengers.

I fly often on DL763's across the pond in Y and I actually find seats 40A/B and/or 40F/G nice. These are the seats right at the back of Y. They have a good recline and it feels a little more private as no passengers are behind you. Granted - it can get a little busy if people want the toilet, however, I didn't find it a problem at all. You cannot hear the toilet nor can you hear hardly any noise from the galley at the back.

I must tell you though the last window seats in Y on DL763's can change from either being rows 40 to 41. The reason being that some DL763's are configured slightly different to others, dependent on which you fly. The majority of flights I have always been on the last row is normally 41. Sometimes they block these seats but if 40A/B/F/G are available grab them as it could be a 763 where those are the last row depending on the configuration.

Hope that's of some help?

Ryan

Look for a thread I started in the trip reports section about a MEX-GRU-ATL-MEX itinerary with AM and DL. My flight between GRU and ATL was with DL in a 763ER and you will find some interesting insight.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
