Preferred seat on CO 737-800?

Which seat do CO road warriors prefer on the 737-800? (the one without the lav between F / E)

Seat 7A or Seat 21A? SG has them both as green.

Typically, bulkhead cramps my legs because I can not stretch them out. SG says there is a bulkhead cutout that allows 7A to stretch their legs...

I would prefer to be closer to the front, but if there is not really ELR, then I will likely go with the Exit Row.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks!

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.

7D, 21D so I can sit in the aisle, and on the starboard side of the a/c so I can look out the window and not have my view of the ground ops blocked by a jetway

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.

Easy answer. Anything in rows 1-4. Row 5 also works in the mid-cabin lav configuration.

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.

I prefer 21C or D. Table is in seat back of seat in front. It pulls towards you. 7C and D are narrower - because the tray table is in the armrest.

If I can't get 1A , it's 7D for me, always. Plenty of legroom and a place for me to stash my purse under 4E.

I got 7C on a recent Continental flight. The best part was 7A and 7B were empty (a rarity) so I could move over to 7A during the flight and see out the window. Got stuck in 34D on the return flight.

7D always blocked on 737's?

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.

On 737-800 with live TV and PTVs (most of them by now I guess) - where are screens located in bulkhead row 7? Are they mounted on the divider between F and Y?

I'd expect them to be there, but SG has a comment that "screen may be difficult to see", although I expect that's outdated info based on overhead screens.
