well, basically everything is said in the topic... I'm not exactly sure if I should choose seat 29J on my upcoming flight AMS-DTW on NW or not... there are reports out there of it only having a "partial window" - whatever that means. Does anyone know NWs 333s well enough to say for sure? (Note: It might be different in the 332s...!)

well, seatguru is far from perfect, that's why I posted the question.... usually the slide pack doesn't bother me and I have seen instances where seatguru says "no window" when there in fact is one....

I believe that their is one IIRC. Based off NW's seat map it is showing a window. But personally I would get something in the forward Coach cabin, as it has powerports at each seat, and if your not in the exit row it also has 2 more inches of leg room than the back part of economy. It also has 4 lavs right there so it may get quite busy.

Correct, there is no window in that row; only the seats in exit row 10 have 1 window available. The slide pack is not too large since it's just a slide and no raft. Also in terms of lav traffic it's not too bad, at least that's what I've experienced - there are overhead bins between row 29 seats and the lav in front of you, so people are unable to stand and queue in front of the emergency exit door.

Quoting Bohica (Reply 1): According to seatguru.com the answer is no. It is an exit row seat without a window, the slide pack in the door blocks your legroom, and it is next to the lav. Personally I would get another seat.
if its an exit seat with no seat infront of me, that wouldn't bother me at all.... i flew KLM DXB-AMS once on the aft wing exit seat, my god how comfortable was that flight...

The seat is aligned ahead of the window on the -300. So when you recline the seat, the window falls into view. Elite customers who are unfamiliar with the aircraft often become pissed when they find that the row 29 A/B/H/J don't have powerports, the door area is cold, and no view. When based in DTW, I often flew trips on the -300, sitting on the jumpseat at door 3, I often had to listen to same complaint over and over again, "why does Northwest put the seats this way?" Now, in SEA, we rarely see the -300 anymore
