DL777LR Seat Question

Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:09 pm

Can anyone advise me if/when seats in rows 56 and 57 become available to assign? They are generally shown as blocked/not available. Are they held/reserved as crew rest? Do they become available at 24 hour check-in or at airport only? It appears they are blocked like row 30, but any 2 seat row is popular so I am interested in learning how they can be obtained.
Thanks for your help.
watch what you want. you may get it.

I am not sure. I am guessing that they are popular because they have the only pairs of seats in economy class, but I would guess you have to ask at the airport, they might be reserved for frequent fliers only, and you might be one, which would increase your chances of obtaining these seats. Crew rest is also probably likely. Sorry I couldn't help!

On DL, most non-exit row and non-bulkhead seats that are blocked off are usually in the last row or two of the plane, and are for use by gate agents so that there is a bit of flexibility in reseating passengers on flights that are booked full. For that reason, I doubt they'll become available until the day of departure.

Even though these are the only 2-2 seats on the plane, the "preferred" seating for elites and frequent flyers is usually much farther towards the front of the cabin and away from the galleys and lavatories.

There are dedicated crew rest facilities on the 77L, so the seats won't be used for that. The entrance to the crew rest facility is actually adjacent to seats 57A and B.
