a galley, where the F/A's prepare food, etc.

So would there be more or less leg room?

I sat in seat 34E recently... I would recommend against it, as I had to listen to the F/As gossip throughout the whole flight. There is no difference in leg room as far as I know.

If you compare the color of the little box in the legend in front of the words lavatory/galley below the seating map with the color of rows 34 and 35, you should able to recognize that is a lavatory or a galley and in my opinion it looks more like a galley than a lavatory.

It's the aft galley and I believe there is just a bit more leg room on the left side of the aircraft. Exit rows have increased leg room, but the arm rests do not raise. Rows 36-38 are right by the engines and are LOUD. That is where the non-revs are usually seated in a full aircraft.

I mis-wrote. I meant there is more legroom on the "right" side.

Are those seats (near the engine) priced cheaper than other seats?

I was on a Delta MD-88 yesterday morning (DL2050 ATL-CMH). That is a galley in rows 34 and 35. That same gally also has an emergency exit in it. I sat in 36B yesterday, right behind the wall. The engine is there, but honestly, I didn't find it to be all that loud. And there was much more leg room.

The two solid lines all the way in the back behind rows 38 are 2 lavatories. And then of course there is a center exit between the two lavatories.

I sat in 36A recently and I would also recommend against it. The legroom is technically the same, however in reality it isn't. This is because instead of a seat in front of you, which you can put your feet and legs under to some degree, there is a wall, which obviously you can't put anything under. Also, the engine, in my experience, isn't outwardly loud, it's just a constant noise that leaves your head ringing for some time after the flight. The worst is on the approach when they are jockeying the throttles. I didn't enjoy that.....

I just flew in 29 D & E. You can really hear the engine noise back there, but it's melodic as far as I'm concerned  Smile Once you're at cruise altitude, it's not too bad.

If you can't get an exit row, seats 26 D/E have a lot of leg room relative to the other seats. The seating offset is the most pronounced at this row.
