Its still a good seat because of the legroom, but it’s loud because you’re next to an engine, and theres nowhere to store a bag in front of you.
This bulkhead first class seat was comfortable and had plenty of legroom. Im 65 and far from being skinny....i had no problems with comfort or buckling up. I had room to spare all the way around. Wirth the money , especially if you are large size.
the underseat storage on all aisle "C" seats are much smaller than middle or window. This applies to all rows in coach.
My understanding is that there is supposed to be additional front-back legroom on Comfort+ seats. If this is true for this seat, I really feel sorry for the people in Economy. I could not even turn around to sit in my seat. I had to go back out to the aisle and slide in to sit down. This seat is horrible!
Older plane but First Class was comfortable. No television screens, but downloaded the GoGoEntertainment app prior to flying and was able to watch movies on my notebook. Smooth take-off and landing.
2c is decent I didnt notice this place as excessively loud. Great service. Code share w westjet but was Delta Seat was roommier than the 757. Updated plane. Wifi but not IFE so bring your device. Delta studio free. Download the app before you fly. The first row didnt look too restricted. Older plane body so not as restricted as i thought before i flew. I was worried it would not be ok and it was a nice trip
Comfortable seat, quiet and smooth ride, more overhead storage than I've encountered lately on short hauls. The one problem with sitting toward the front is that this plane seems to take forever to load since it's long, narrow and only has the one entrance. If boarding with the "sky" priority group isn't a concern for you, it may be more comfortable to wait until a later boarding group.
I am 6 feet tall with long legs and always pay more for Delta comfort. I have always been comfortable in those seats. UNTIL today! Flying home from D.C. area was painful on our Delta flight. There was NO extra legroom in our Comfort seats! I still have a dent in my knee from it pressing into the seat in front of me. I sure hope Delta doesn't think they are charging a boatload more for the opportunity to have a free drink, because most of us in economy comfort just want our extra legroom. I won't fly this plane again, and Delta, you should be ashamed of yourselves for false advertising!
Directly beside the engine. Fumes before take off. Extremely noisy ride.
Somewhat cramped seating. Noisy. Agree with an earlier comment that the seats on the 2 seat side are better for a traveling couple, but on this flight Delta has apparently decided to charge extra for these seats, so passed them up.
My seat was broken and did not recline. The legroom was so tight that by the end of my SMF - MSP flight I could not feel my legs or anything that pertains to them. The two guys sitting next to me seemed to have a hard time as well. The aircraft was N924DN, an ex-China Eastern, 18 year old trouble-maker.
This plane was so loud, and cramped. The lack of headroom and seat pitch made for a very hot and uncomfortable flight. Delta please retire the MD-90 and MD-88
I was asked by a flight attendant to switch to this window seat from my aisle so two boys could sit together. She failed to mention the air that blows on to your feet below the seat is frigid. I was wearing winter boots, a blanket and a winter coat over my feet and they were still numb from the cold after 4 hours of having to sit in this seat. Never, ever choose this seat.
Took the MD-90 from Boston to Atlanta and my ears are still ringing 24 hours later. I'm not sure if the noise level is greater from this seat or if the whole plane is loud (I had to yell to the flight attendant to order a beverage). The flight was great, but the noise level is just unbearable so I will probably try and sit towards the front next time to give it a try. Took the MD88 up to Boston and didn't seem to bother me at all in row 22.
Completely disagree, horrible noisy, up to 104 decibel, 96 average, damaginging for your ear in 15-30 min. This would be considered a dangerously loud work place, ear plugs are a must. The crew did not have any one, so bring yours. I don't think row 37 is better.
Legroom is better than first class, it's just missing the free booze! Shame it was for a relatively quick BOS-DTW hop. I'm a giant of a lady (6'3") and I've ample space to stretch my legs, though due to the exit door's shape, angled slightly to the right. Not having an overhead bin over the exit area was useful for not hitting my head on the way in, or disturbing the passenger in 36B when I had to get up to use the lav. I'm an aircraft junkie as well, and love the sound of the thrust reverser on the V2500, so I like being in the back of an MD-90. One note, as the map suggests that anyone can select the seat at check in, that's not exactly true; you can pay to upgrade to it at any time if your're not of sufficient medallion service up until an hour before the departure time, when it becomes free to select, though it doesn't always work that way via the app or website. Checking with the gate agent or SkyClub concierge is more reliable, and especially for us taller ones, many of those staff (less so at the larger hubs for Delta, perhaps as their supervisors are looking over their shoulders more often I suppose) they'll override it and assign it to you before the hour prior to departure if you're courteous and polite. The staff really make flying Delta a pleasure, from check in to picking up your bag before you head home at the end of the trip. With my legs up, there's still a good 18-24" until the bulkhead. http://i.imgur.com/thfUPHP.jpg
I'll go out of my way to avoid any flight on this plane again. My husband and I are both tall - 6' and 6'8". These are the worst comfort seats ever. Intolerable due to lack of leg room.
This row does not have extra legroom typically associated with an exit row seat. Between the seat not reclining and not having any additional legroom, I would feel comfortable calling it one of the worst seats on the plane.
Row 10 offers great legroom. Definitely superior to the other Comfort+ on the same plane, in my opinion. This particular seat also offers a great view if you're into that sort of thing - not obscured by the wing or a weird angle. The arm rest tray table is problematic but not a deal breaker for me.
Quiet seat, close to the front for easy on/off, but out of the way of lavs, galley, etc. Electrical outlets were close to the seatback pockets which was convenient for charging things while they were tucked in. Seemed to have a bit less legroom than some other models' Comfort+, but the seat itself was comfortable enough.
