I flew JFK to POS on a DL 738 just before Christmas. I sat in Row 29 and the pitch seemed to be 'HUGE' (wonderfull). Whereas the forward seats seemed to be WAY less. I sat in Row 23 on the return trip on another DL 738 and the pitch was WAY less - I also noticed the last few rows had the same 'increased' pitch. Can anyone explain why this is so? BTW, excellent trip Delta!!  Smile  Smile

They reduced seats on the 737-800 to 150(16F,134Y) to save on FA costs(over 150 requires an extra flight attendent. However, they will be adding 10 more Y seats to the 738s coming up soon. I'll miss those seats as well.

According to seatguru, the pitch in 29 varies due to the seats behind being removed or not, as COERJ145 said. See the seat map below:

Seat Pitch is also a mechanical adjustment and can go out of its settings. Its just a jam-nut and they can work loose giving you more or less pitch.....but I would go with what was said above

DL is not the only ones with different seat pitch in Economy.

UA has as you know Economy, Economy Plus

Look at the different aircraft seating charts below a lot of them have the 2 classes and seat pitch in economy

Uh, WHAT?
Sure, it's a mechanical adjustmet. In the same way that the wings being held on to the airplane is a mechanical adjustment.
I understand what you're saying, but for an entire bench of two or three seats to physically move forward or aft in their tracks is preposterous, and if it happened, would indicate a SEVERE lack of attention. Ever heard of a cotter-pin? These things have to meet g-load crash requirements put out by our friends at the FAA. For them to just 'come loose' is... just a goofy idea.

But anyhow, interesting that they're putting those seats back in. Apparently Delta has decided that the revenue generated by the seats offsets the cost of the additional flight attendant? Odd- I wouldn't have thought so.

Slimline seats are going in, so the whole coach section will be getting re-done. So actually, it will be 10 more seats from what I understand than what is was in the old configuration with the extra FA.



What gets measured gets done.
