Delta 737-800 & 752 Seat Help

Sun Apr 02, 2006 6:54 am

My wife and I are going to be flying in coach on Delta pretty soon and I'm in the process of assigning seats on the website. I'm pretty tall, but I love window seats so it can be quite a challenge...

On the web site there are two different seat maps for the 737-800. One shows row 31 as having the two seats as a window and a middle with NO aisle and the other shows aisle and middle with NO window. Can anyone confirm which it is.

Also, I find the 752 on Delta to be VERY uncomfortable. Can anyone recommend a row (other than exit on forward since I can't pre-assign these) that may offer a bit more room or comfort?

Any suggestions or replys are greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Markus

I have found the DL 752s to be alright, except for the seats around the wings. All of the other seats are alright. It's just those seats by the exits that don't recline that are the problems.

I've been to Seat Guru...they show it as the window seat missing.

Delta's website shows two different configs...

It is the window seat that's missing in most if not all of these birds. Hope that helps.

Thanks...Is this the way the last two rows of the Delta 737-200's are? Or are they Window/Middle?

On the DL 737-800 the last row in the back has the window seat removed. There is a middle seat, and the aisle seat. I flew in the middle seat next to a large guy on a flight from SLC to GEG.

You get a good view, but its strange since you have only the armrest, not the wall to lean on. I didn't notice extra leg room. On my flight there was a trash bag of stuff (maybe peanuts?) occupying the space on the floor.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! That helps a bunch...I guess row 30 would be pretty good since the window seat wouldn't have anyone behind you. Plus I heard somewhere that rows 29 and 30 have a couple more inches legroom. Now, If I could just find a decent seat on the 752!!

Markus, 29ABC, 30ABC and 31BC all have 35-36" pitch. My favorite of the lot is either 30A (window, wall and extra legroom) or 31B (extra legroom, no one to your left, altho no wall to lean on). 31B is great because the extra space next to you is yours and you can always just get up, walk to the left and behind row 31 if your seatmate is asleep.

As for the 752, good luck. I hate flying onboard that bird unless it's in an exit row, bulkhead or in First.

That is absolutely right. Take 31B and C (the only twosome seats on the aircraft) if you are traveling with a companion. Trust me, they are the most comfortable seats on the aircraft.

Bit of history on those seats. Delta's 737-800s were previously configured WITHOUT the last two rows on the left, which brought the seating capacity to 148. Thus they avoided putting an extra flight attendant on board (one per 50). However, they soon realized they were missing two revenue seats and started putting in these two seats, moving rows 29, 30 and 31 evenly in the leftover space (hence the increased seat pitch). These seats are especially good on transcon flights.


Hope this helps.

Ex-shuttle A/C are getting this treatment as well as they're reconfig'd for mainline service.

I am interested in seeing what the new cabin looks like in the 738 as I've heard good and bad about it in the bird... Shame they got rid of the winged headrests in F. UGH! my only gripe about DL cabins (aside from the 757 being too tight)

I flew on one of these a few weeks ago to LAS. Yes the winged head rests are gone, and so are the foot rest, but other than that, the seats are VERY comfortable. The shape and the arm rest is really nice. I think they're my new favorite first class seat on Delta.
