  1. Hey Rene, quick question. Finally getting the chance to fly a 747 business out to Asia with my wife and can’t decide on the best seats. Currently have 1a/k since the nose gets skinny so I thought it would be a good experience and fairly close. I know the hump doesn’t seem close and the back area you lean forward to talk. What would you’re choice be for a couple (considering it will likely be the last chance at a 747 business for us)? Thanks!!!

  2. @Jordan – Those seats are very PVT and nice and yet also you have personal space. A good call. If not, upstairs across from each other you can talk freely and tons of space. Last choice center seats are very personal and close to each other.

  3. Rene,

    You mentioned in one of your posts what the protocol was for serving in first class. Would you please repeat the acronym that you used for even vs. odd numbered flights and the corresponding service direction?



  4. I’m flying JFK – MXP in May with my wife, having a real hard time figuring out which seat is better

    10A/B || 10H/J
    or should we pick
    10C/D || 10F/G

    Seat Guru says
    10A/B and 10H/J have “Restricted Legroom Due To bulkhead”
    10C/D and 10F/G have “Extra legroom Due To Position Of The Bulkhead”

    i’m 6ft tall, would either of the seats provide enough legroom for me to rest/stretch my legs on my carry on?

  5. Hey Rene,

    Read your review of your 747 flight from Narita. Any suggestions on Which Delta one seats on the upper deck? Do any have a larger foot well for folks like myself, maybe like the bulkheads on the 767? Super excited for my flight on the Queen of the skies before she retires to the boneyard!



  6. Hi Rene, Can you tell me why Delta stopped flying planes with lay flat seats on their flights(all red eyes) from the US to Iceland. I flew last May and it was such a treat to sleep laying flat. Now trying to book this August to bring my 89 year old mother home to Iceland and no lay flat seats! I called Delta and it was news to them. I even checked Icelandair, and even their flights from JFK now do not lay flat either. But I want the MQMs so want to stay on Delta. What do you know about this? Or can you find out?
    Thank you!
