- The Seat: If you’re longer than you are wider, then you should like it here. A fantastic amount of leg and knee space is what you get anywhere in row 4 aboard this Delta Connection CRJ-700 in the “Economy Comfort” portion of coach. The benefit of the bulkhead row is a bonus inch or two of premium legroom thanks to being behind first class seats with a more generous recline. The absence of a bulkhead wall (or “hard bulkhead”) means you can stretch fully and not have to stow all of your personal items overhead for take-off and landing. If your “Hips Don’t Lie” you might not like the net minus where seat width is concerned. The tray table is tucked away in the armrest, making things feel a little tighter than a typical economy or economy comfort seat.
Food: This was a beverage only flight. Wine/beer is for purchase unlike Delta’s long-haul international version of Economy Comfort where drinks are complimentary.
Summary: This is the row that provides the best value aboard this CRJ-700. Row 4 comes with the most legroom aboard the aircraft with minimal squeeze and is worth a small up-charge particularly if you’re tall.
Rating: 4 hops (of 5)
Strategy: Delta Airlines Medallion (elite) SkyMiles members get into these seats for no extra charge but at different times depending upon your status level (silver, gold, etc.). These seats are available for purchase to all when booking.
