The wall curves in and out to accommodate the windows. The "divider" between them juts out into your shoulder in this seat. Be great to know which seats have this issue so we can avoid them. Always nice to get the extra inch or two of shoulder space in window when window is aligned with shoulder
Horribly tight bulkhead. Fine if you are 5’ tall or less. Trays are in the Armrest so they are more narrow and then this ridiculous “leg room” on a 5 hour flight.
hard and very narrow seats, very less space everywhere, overnight-flight is a torture. much worse than a newer and bigger 767
Decreased leg room due to wall. I'm 6'4" and I felt like I had more room in economy on the inbound flight. The excellent service made up for it and it's always nice being one of the first off the plane.
A good Comfort+ seat. There was enough room between this seat and first class to get up from the window seat without asking row-mates to get up. The window placement is excellent and I had a beautiful view of CUN on the departure. I agree with other reviews that say this part of the plane is warm! I went to the lav mid-flight and couldn't believe the temperature difference between front and back of plane.

Delta charged $39.99 for this seat on 1138 mile flight. Called a “preferred” seat and considered an exit row but, buyer beware, this is a standard economy seat and has no more legroom than any other main cabin seat. Not worth extra money. Very misleading presentation from Delta.
4/12/19 DL#1082 SEA to ANC: the Comfort+ rows immediately behind the bulkhead rows have equipment boxes underneath the aisle seats in fornt. This is because the bulkhead row in front has TVs stored in the armrests so i assume the boxes under that seat relate to their entertainment function. Better to select a Comfort+ seat in one of the rows further back and avoid 12D and 11C (bulkhead is one row further up on ABC side of plane). also, though i did not sit in 11D (the bulkhead seat in front of me), it did not look super comfortable.
This seat has NO xtra legroom, except during take off and landing. While flying the closet door is open and takes about 4” off the legroom, making this seat worse than non-Comfort+ seats. Avoid at all costs!
Many complaints on-line Re. how bad the seats are on this plane. First class seats, while not uncomfortable, hardly recline. The recline on the old MD-88 are twice what they are on this plane. I definitely try to avoid this aircraft on flight longer than 1.5 hours, or when I want to recline and sleep.
Im a large guy. Im 65 and far from being thin. These seats were comfy, plenty of room to spare. Worth rhe money, especially if youre a large person.
I'm short, only 5'3", so the alleged lack of legroom in the bulkhead seats isn't an issue for me. Being in a window seat, I wasn't bothered by the people visiting the lavatory or the FAs doing tasks in the galley like the passenger in 1B. I have flown this same seat a few times now, and I feel "cozy" there. I'm one of the first off the plane which is another bonus for this seat.
Avoid all the seats in Row1. The legroom for Row1 is tiny and even smaller than Economy Class due to the bulkhead.
There is a hard plastic box under the seat that takes up half of the legroom for both 21C and 21D. Especially since the metal seat supports are offset and cut into the legroom of both seats further too.
Because of the closet there is no under seat storage. Items must be stored in overhead storage. Video screen is mounted on closet wall, may be hard for shorter or younger passengers to reach the screen to choose programing on long flights.
Because of closet there is no under seat storage and legroom is less then other Comfort+ seats. The seat sticks out and knees could be hit by serving cart.
Decent room for a economy seat. Seat back entertainment and charging worked well. Better than AA's products with BYO entertainment. Easy to find the button to lift aisle armrest for easy in/out.
I read the bulkhead seats were not ideal for foot and leg room, but after riding in seat 3A, I will elect to take a bulkhead next time I ride a DL 739, if available. Tray tables are fold out from the seat divider in all rows, not just row 1, which I am not a fan of, as they are typically uncomfortably positioned for eating a meal. While the large TV and entertainment system were pluses, the leg room behind row 1 is on par with JetBlue's Even More Space seats. Nice wide seat, but leg room was sub-par, especially riding behind a passenger fully reclined from takeoff to arrival on a 3h45m JFK-SJU trip. Seat itself had sufficient padding and comfortable otherwise.
21A and 21F are the best seats on the plane (beyond first class, of course). Tray table, video controls and headphone jack in the arm rest between you and the center seat. Somehow this did not appear to widen the armrest, so no negative impact on your seat width. Your own personal power outlet underneath the seat. Add more legroom than you can possibly need, a regular bottom cushion and the seat reclines. Only tiny minus might be that your screen is farther away. Took this on a JFK-PDX (NYC to Portland, OR) flight and they even served a free very tasty dinner of chicken with pasta salad (and offered two other options).
Good seat. Tray table on 2A comes out of armrest and sagged so that I used a magazine at the hinge. My wife in 2B had no problem with her table. Very good selection of movies and other TV shows. Plenty of leg room and the seats were nose and wide allowing you to more in your seat.
