Seat pitch is reduced by ~3". Severe lack of legroom! Seat has AC and USB power available.
The description of this seat says that it has a “limited recline”. This isnt true. It has zero recline. And the adjustable headrest adjusts, but doesnt stay put. It slumps back down. Prepare to sit fully erect the entire flight.
I am a very large traveler. I am a female at roughly 5'5, weighing about 315lbs. I relied heavily on this site to help me find a good seat, so I wanted to share my experience as well to help others. I sat in 12C, which was a Comfort+ seat. I will be honest, I was terrified because of my size. The seat was surprisingly comfortable. I felt like it was wide enough to hold me and I didn't even interfere with the person next to me. At the same time, however, my seatmate and I got lucky and our third seatmate did not show. Since that happened, my seatmate went ahead and moved to the window seat and we had the seat between us empty. I got LUCKY! While I don't feel I was an undue burden on my seatmate, I felt much more comfortable having the spare seat between us. Please see my other reviews for the smaller planes!
MCI to DTW short flight, seat is better than those on a A319 . I am 6' 250lbs and was able to get both feet under seat in front and my knees did not touch the seat in front. Two across seating great when traveling with a loved one.
21B doesn't have any additional legroom and the tray table is in the arm rest. The tray is barely big enough to fit a tablet so avoid if you plan to work or watch movies. You can stow under the seat in front of you.
the worst seat I have ever had on a plane. no window, like sitting in a cave, the stench from the bathroom was, lets say, just awful!
This is a great Comfort+ seat with great legroom and plenty of space for your bag under the first class seats. At least in my seat, the tray table in the armrest did not extend away from your body, which didn't allow me to use it since I'm a bit on the bigger side. Luckily, it was a short hop between LAX-SFO so I didn't really need it, but something to keep in mind on longer flights.
This was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever taken in over 40 years of flying. By mistake I booked economy rather than comfort+ as I normally do and it was a nightmare mistake; the seat didn't recline, the leg room appeared to be about 50% less than the other seats except for those across the aisle, the arm rest didn't raise (which IMHO is dangerous in an exit row) and the tray table when extended pressed into my abdomen (I'm slightly overweight with a slight ponch but I've never had this problem before on any flight).
This seat sucks! This was a last minute flight and I was assigned this seat at the gate. What I didn't realize is that there was no window! Hardly any recline either (if any). Although the engine noise didn't bother me, be aware that it is literally right next to you and it is very loud.
Not bad, not great overall. All of the first class rows have the seat leg support bars in the middle of the aisle seat foot room, so that under seat storage for the B and C seats is split. The part toward the aisle was too small for my laptop backpack, so I had to jam it in on the window side along with the window seat person's bag. It just doesn't seem like 1st class should have limited under seat storage. Also, passengers from other cabins used the first class bathroom so the assumption that I'd only be sharing with 11 other people and would rarely if ever have to wait was gone. I have a medical issue where this is important. Had I known this I would've just gone with Comfort+.
This seat does have floor storage under the seat in front (under A and B actually) and was not designated as Premium. Was able to selext this seat 24 hours before with a Basic Economy ticket.
Very good Single Seat
Has the fixed armrests in the middle which can be a plus, but the seat doesn't recline.
Impossible to stretch one's legs due to bulkhead. Yellow at best, perhaps red...
Overall, the seats were fine. Comfortable and roomy enough for me. There is a blower behind 3C and while noisy, did nothing to us. Delta really has nice seats in First Class on their 717's. They were enough to last the 3.5 hour flight from BOS-RSW. The flight attendants do tend to bump into 3C due to the aisle, but the seats are great. Row is perfectly situated for a nice view out the window
It has no left arm rest.
My son actually had this seat. There IS floor storage for this seat. I think that warning should be removed. There's barely any additionally leg room (maybe no extra) and the tray table is in the arm rest so it's a little tighter, but I think it's at least an average seat.
This seat should be a yellow because it has the tray table in the armrest limiting width.
Great seat. Nothing bothersome here. End of story
Average legroom, view is partially obstructed by the wing, but not too much. Engine noise was bearable, but I would never sit in the rear due to extremely loud tail-mounted engines (try the rear lavatories to get an impression).
