Hotel Name: The B Akasaka
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Aircraft: Airbus 330-300 (333) –
Seat: 5J & 1a
*Hawaii Service Note: (As of early 2012) It’ll be hard to find a Delta A330-300 flying on most (or all) flights to Hawaii. They appear to have been replaced by Boeing 757-300 and 767-300 aircraft.
Airline/Club Name: Delta SkyClub
Location: Chicago O’Hare (ORD)
Terminal/Concourse: Terminal 2 -Airside. Follow “E” gates until they split to the right from “F” gates. Club is on the left just after split.
Notes: A small non-hub lounge that’s surprisingly comfortable given it’s narrow space.
Airline: Sun Country
Aircraft: Boeing 737-700
The Seat: The wear and tear on these seats make for a mediocre first impression, but once you’re settled in there’s not much that makes them any different (at least comfort-wise) than most US Domestic carriers. The legroom in this and it’s neighboring seat (1F) is the best in first. If you’re around 6′ tall or less, you should be able to fully extend your legs to the bulkhead and will have no problem getting in and out of your seat if you’re on the window. Seat width is standard with a large enough center console for elbow-space and an additional pull-out beverage “shelf” (I’m at a loss for what to call them…”beverage counter” maybe?). Overall 1D is a comfortable seat with tons legroom and a decent console for beverages and elbow room.
*Delta has refitted this aircraft with “Economy Plus” seating and this review no longer applies. Both legroom and recline should be greatly improved but these seats now come with elite status or an additional fee. (3/6/13 ||JR)
