Airline: Northwest
Aircraft: 757-300
Seat: 15C
Class: Coach (premium/elite seating)

Update (March 2014): This is now an “Economy Comfort” seat and offers more legroom and a more generous recline.


Notes: 15 C is a very interesting coach seat. In front of this row are 2 exit seats that are slightly shifted leaving small amounts of room on either side allowing those in both this seat and 15A (window seat) to extend one leg forward with little or no obstruction.  Otherwise a pretty normal coach seat.  Normal benefits apply when sitting this far up; Early cabin service and first off the airplane. The proximity to the lavatory doesn’t seem like it would be a problem for either rows 14 or 15 as there is plenty of space in between (although bathroom congregators might be a problem). There is a small seat support that slightly obstructs legroom under the seat but it’s an easy shift. Summary: Slightly above average. A small shift and you have a little extra legroom but just slightly awkward. Easy on, easy off and quick service is always good.Rating: 3 hops (of 5).How I got it: Delta Medallion Status.  (NWA is now a part of Delta and will eventually be absorbed completely). Also may be available for purchase as a “Coach Choice” seat for a small fee 24 hours before your flight (if available).

      Hi Jeff,

      It’s a good question. Best I could find as a flickr photo here that might help illustrate how they’re spread out within the cabin:

      In my experience it hasn’t been difficult to see the screens from any seat. But then, I’m not a kid. If all else fails, you may have luck negotiating a row swap with the passengers in-front of (or behind) you by explaining that you don’t want your kids to have to crane their necks to see the movie. If they refuse, tell your kids to kick their seats mercilessly until landing in Hawaii. ;c)

    Hi Jake,

    I will be flying on the Delta 757-300 (LAX – HNL) route. I am just curious if sitting in 15A will allow me access to the aisle in front of row 14 when needed without disrupting passengers in 15B and 15C, so they won’t need to move out of the way as like other rows. Another curious question is the window alignment with seat 15A, meaning is the window misaligned or is the seat aligned properly to the window(assuming all 757-300 configurations are the same). Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi Jake,

    I will be flying on a 757-300 (LAX – HNL) route. I am wondering if I will be able to access the aisle in front of row 14 from seat 15A so that I won’t be disturbing the passengers in 15B and 15C when I need to get up. Also will the window for the same seat 15A be aligned or misaligned(assuming all 757-300 configurations are the same). Thank you very much in advance.

      These are (or should be) now be Economy Comfort seats, which I have yet to review. I can tell you that in it’s original configuration, getting up meant the normal climbing over your neighbors in the B/C seats or wedging in between the exit door and whoever was in the A seat in the row ahead. I’d imagine though, with the extra room provided by the newer, roomier seating area it might be a less daunting task to get over or around others.
