With no seat in front, there is practically unlimited legroom, and the view from the two windows next to you is also an added bonus. However, the proximity to the lavatories is more than an issue for this seat, with a noticeable foul stench on a regular basis. I would recommend this seat for anyone who would prioritize legroom over all else; otherwise, sitting further away from the lavatories may be called for.
Sat in Premium Select seat 25G both directions LAX-HND. I chose the location of the seat because of the divider behind it (so no worries about who you recline into, or pax using the seat to pull themselves up), but the layout of this plane where the aisle "jogs" to the side at the right rear of the Premium Select cabin meant that flight attendants frequently backed into my seat when they were moving the service carts around. In particular on the outbound flight, the same FA must have backed (more like bashed) into my seat 4 or 5 times - I don't know if he was not used to the plane or just particularly clueless, but either way it wasn't pleasant. I get that this can happen in a small space, but when the same FA does the same thing over and over -- come on, figure it out, dude. Next time I'd grab a bulkhead seat instead.
Flew seat Delta One seat 8A from LAX to Shanghai. In Delta One, for the window seat even rows sit you closer to the aisle and odd rows sit you closer to the window. I flew on odd seat on my return flight so I was able to experience both. I like the even seats better because there is a storage bin between you and the window. It also doesn't feel any less private due to the ability to close the door. FYI, sitting in the back of Delta One meant they was usually only one option left for breakfast and lunch. I would strongly recommend sitting closer to the front. Seat was perfect for me, but I'm only 5' 7" so I could even curl up on my side with plenty of room left when lying flat. Slept for hours, loved the bedding.
seat 43G on Delta A350 from DTW to AMS. Seat was good. Leg room was adequate . Airplane engine noise was very low I thought. You must share 110 volt outlet with your seat mate. This is a negative. All seats have USB power but that is sometimes not enough.
Mid point of last section of main cabin. Seat had a lot of adjustments- headrest and recline. Legroom fine when sitting but tough to have space to stand. Definitely don’t want row 40 as it was where everyone queued up for the head.
While this seat may be an upgrade over Delta's existing business class product, the suite product is far below what Qatar Airways offers in their Business Class suites in terms of sleeping space and storage space and overall comfort. I am not sure why Delta did not emulate Qatar in this respect, although that would have meant some rear-facing seats which are actually quite nice. One of the problems I had was that the passenger behind me kept kicking the seat which simply does not happen on Qatar due to their layout. I found moving around in the Delta suite when lying down to be somewhat cumbersome due to the lack of room. Also, beware on the food service if you are seated in the rear of the Delta One cabin - my soup was cold and the ice cream was completely melted (like soup) once they reached my row. And I agree with the comments on the small restrooms for Business Class and being right by seats 1B and 1C. But I will say Delta has some of the best staff of any airline in the world and that reason alone makes them worth flying.
The seat was fine and the leg room was very good. The plan layout was bad. I am saying this because you cannot walk a loop in coach. They put all the carts in the back and that blocks the walking. I was on a 12hr flight and you need to walk every 2hrs if possible. I will not rind this plane again if possible.
Flew from DTW to ICN in March 2019 on A350 on seat 25H. Originally, had 20H but had switched with someone being a nice guy. Surely glad I did since I slept like a baby. The bulkhead seats had plenty of leg room but the all stowage such as the IFE is also stored on the armrest and makes it a little bulky and cramped when you extend the leg rest. Instead 25H was great despite being in the last row, it still had full/plenty recline like the other seats. The seat controls are placed a little awkward along with the head phone connection but 10 mins into the trip, you'll master the controls.
It is true that with the entertainment monitor going into your armrest, the amount of seat width for just your legs is slightly reduced. Also, your entertainment monitor screen might be slightly smaller than that for other premium select seats.
NRT-DTW: Good seat, except that the left support of the seat in front is rather wide , forcing your left leg slightly to the right into an awkward position. Soft product is generally superior, with Japanese meal entry actually tasting better than in Business going out.
Other reviewers have made many great points re narrow aisles, overhead storage and lack of vent in middle seats but I must add that this was easily the most comfortable flat bed seat I've had in any aircraft. The foot area is comparatively spacious and padded. Also each of the meals was a small cut above the average for business class. I found no problem with operating the door. Yes, the bathrooms are small and the light in one was inoperable. The IFE screen is, as noted by others, large and responsive. Overall it was a great flight.
KDTW -> ZBAA (DTW-PEK) Excellent. View was great when over the arctic, and the recline was fine. The tray table was fairly large, and the food was excellent compared to other economy meals.
Business Class Seat 7C on NRT->DTW. Reviewer is a 5'10" 200lb male Positives: 1) Seat folds flat & shade between middle seats. 2) Reasonable working room for laptop & some food/drink. 3) Cabin environment was noticeably better for noise & humidity. Needs Improvement: 1) No overhead storage for center seat & limited in seat storage. 2) Since the plane is quite, you can hear everyone's conversations & anyone opening/closing doors. 3) Center seat seemed to get hot due to lack of ventilation controls.
The handicap bathroom on these planes is behind row 39 GHJ seats. There's room for a wheelchair (probably a small one) - which means if you're a big guy like me, you actually have a little bit of room in the bathroom for a change.
Extremely uncomfortable airplane- The seats are thin and narrow -aisles very tight and almost no bathrooms- none in the rear and 4 total for all of economy in center of plane making it very crowded in by the 39-40 seating area. I would take the 767 or 330 anytime over this uncomfortable plane...
Looked forward to the DTW-PVG flight on the 350. Now that I've tried it I won;t go out of my way to fly it again. It's fine but not the travel revolution I expected. Odd number seats are further from the aisle and more private. Row 3 on the window side is far enough from the lav and galley so noise and light not a real issue. As noted, space is limited. The aisles are quite narrow and the lav is small. The suite door is a hassle to open and close. Our lav door had an issue - the light did not come on - and the crew managed to keep it lit for the entire flight whether door was opened or closed. This was a problem for the guy in seat 1B. The galley is small and the crew quarters up front so the front of the plane was a bit crowded and noisy. But DL crews are fabulous and work hard to make the experience enjoyable.
This was my first opportunity selecting the Delta One class to Shanghai. For the center B positions, the odd numbered rows seem to have a larger enclosed space than the even ones (with the even rows at the C position having the larger space). I agree that the lack of overhead air vents in B/C positions is a problem, since my unit was also too hot. I left the door open most of the time. I am 6'2", and I couldn't easily get comfortable. Between the provided comforter and pillows, there really wasn't much space to put personal items when I first arrived. The IFE was superb, with a large and responsive screen. The amenities were nice. Meals and snacks were excellent.
The seat arrangement for the A330-300 is much better for economy seating than the new A350. 2-4-2 ensures that you never have to bother more than one person to leave your seat. The 3-3-3 arrangement can cause two people to get up to let a window seat passenger out. Same for the 777. I will always take the A330 economy seat when given the choice.
I flew from Detroit to Narita and back on PS and was extremely satisfied. It can cost twice more than economy but in my view well worth it for long transpacific flights. I'm 5'10", large build and had lots of leg room and incline. The seats were wide enough and I had adequate shoulder room. Our dedicated flight attendant took care of us and the food was tasty. The IFE screens were HUGE with lots of movies to choose from. The A350 was the quietest wide body aircraft I've been on. No need to shout to have conversations. Restrooms are tiny but not an issue. I'll definitely fly this type of aircraft and class again.
The Delta One suite on the A350 is very comfortable. Odd number A and D seats are closer to their window than even number seats. There's a bit more room for your feet when in flat bed position than on some other aircraft, but there isn't any storage space. Video screen large, very responsive. I found the door to make it "private" was more trouble than it's worth. Hard to open and close, and I didn't really feel more enclosed, but people in even number seats, who sit closer to the aisle, might find it more helpful. A very nice new aircraft. And quiet!
