I'm a fan of the exit rows because there is more room for the people in the middle and window seats to step over me. IIRC, 7 has the curtain so you can put your feet under the F seat, but there isn't as much room for you to step over people to get to the aisle. Not a big deal on short/mid flights, but could get annoying on t-cons.
i scored 7C last night on a return from IAH to DCA.... not a bad seat at all. i checked in 24 hours out and saw that someone else already pulled the trigger for 7D. the curtain can be kindov annoying though.

Thanks again everyone! (Fortunately, I did score row 3 upgrade on the longer leg of my flights today.)
For the other leg, I chose 7A and found it excellent for economy. This really was ELR - I could stretch my legs as far out as I wanted - with the bulkhead cutout I could put my feet under the 4th row F seat... Plus, nobody reclining in front of me...
So, on this configuration at least, I think you can't go wrong with 7A or 7F (if you like window seats) or 7C / 7D if you like aisles.
Little bit of an old thread but I was wondering if anyone here knows why 7D is always blocked on 737-800 and if so, when is it released? I'm Plat so I can pre-select any other seat in row 7. I'm flying EWR-ORD.
