Row 7 on a DL 757...avoid it.. bad experience!

I'm on a K fare from SEA to JFK right now. I got UG'd and got row 7 seat C. I had no choice in the matter. Whatever. I don't want this to seem like a DYKWIA rant. I'm happy to have gotten my complimentary UG.

However, maybe DL IT can link in your preferred seating preferrences to the UG list.

Everytime the coach lav is used, which is every 4 minutes, a very annoying noise and vibration is felt in my seat. I know, whoa is me. Never mind the constant slamming of the lav door. I'd rather have a quiet seat in coach.

Woe, even, but we'll chalk this up to lav fumes.

I actually wouldn't mind. Going to ask the FA now. Only middle seats now. Maybe someone will swap.

every two minutes now. The sound of:

1. Lav door opening.

2. Lav door slamming.

3. Toilet flushing - major vibration and noise felt.

4. Smell of human waste

repeat steps 1 through 4.

lovely

Every 2 minutes in Economy, in general:

1. 400 lb guy reclines seat to accommodate excess blubber; leaves passenger behind him with approximately 1.2 cm. of legroom
2. Woman across aisle whips out foot nail polish; proceeds to paint bare feet in cramped cabin.
3. Toddler begins a 50-yard dash marathon up and down the aisle.

That's just a start...can anyone add to that?

I thought I had read it all, but a thread COMPLAINING about getting upgraded is definitely something new!

thats all it was really meant to be...an actual, factual in flight experience with a little humor injected into it.

Now, as my dumb luck would have it, a particle of food (biscoff cookie?) lodged under my 'K' key on my laptop and is now very hard to depress!
