Normally my fellow BA blogger, whose fireside chat you can read HERE btw if you missed it, and who is a Platinum Medallion Delta flyer, has solid and trusted advice when it comes to flying on our dear Delta Air Lines. This time, well, really not so much!
You see in THIS POST from last week he gives some of the worst advice I have EVER seen. Get this, he tells us:
“First and foremost, legroom is an important reason why I do not select the bulkhead seat. Most of the bulkhead seats have a carve out for your feet and a few have a carve out for basically your toes. Nowhere near the space of the under seat storage for rows not in the bulkhead. ” – PM&M
What total rubbish! Please do not follow this bad advice about picking row 3. Here is why you should absolutely pick the bulkhead seat, especially so on short haul trips.
You see, many of the 757’s, on the CD side, have a large cut out and even if you get stuck on a bird with the tiny cutout the leg room is fine. On to the reasons why either side, aisle seat, bulkhead on a short haul 757 is the BEST choice:
- Service. Short flight, row one best service & Woodford quickest
- Laptop space (safety). No one to recline into you and break your laptop
- The aisle seat for quick access to overheads since no under seat storage
So there you are. I hope you can see MY advice is the one to follow not PM&M’s. Now he does have great Delta advice HERE & HERE when it comes to seats so maybe we can just chalk this post up to a “5PM somewhere” kind of a post 🙂 ! – René
