Re: DL releases anti-ME3 video

Looks like the J seats-your head is by the window-not the aisle. The triangle by the aisle is the footrest for when the seat is laid flat. Therefore, I think, that when you are in a sitting position, your head will be by the window. And when sleeping, your head will be away from the aisle. I think.

The photo of the hole in the wing looks to be the right main antiskid module. That would indicate a hydraulic leak-no fuel. It is right above the main landing gear strut and is accessed through a panel on top of the wing for repairs-the panel that is missing-held on by screws.
