I also have a question related to this: Do you know what the J seats are like on that aircraft? Are they more like domestic BE seats than international? (I realize they are not flat-beds or lie-flats) Do you get a duvet and larger pillow?

Medallions are eligible for complimentary upgrades on the JFK-GEO route, which makes me pessimistic about the quality of the BE cabin!
The 752ER has cradle BE seats with footrests, although they are different than the ones on the 763ER. The website says there are pillows and duvets:
http://www.delta.com/traveling_check...ontinental.jsp has many pics that may be useful!

IFE/Power: EC and Y have AVOD. There is USB and US/EU power outlets in rows 31-39.

AFAIK the 777 flies MSP-NRT-SIN. Y has USB power and AVOD.

All things considered, the E-120 is not a regional jet.

I suggest maybe adding sections on good/bad seats with each aircraft since that is asked a lot

Question for you FT searching Gurus (or people with the particular experience): Is there any info/preference to the new flat bed seats on the 74S? There are comments all over the place that rows 73 and 77 are the best on the old 744 (with some also going for row 1 due to the window angle). Would it be the same on the new flat bed interior 74S or is there another seat that becomes desirable now that there is only one seat on the outside so the extra space needed to get by your neighbor is not a factor?

Nice job Robin--thanks.

The 333/332 BE seats aren't what I would call cradle, but angled lie-flat, and my wife and I both think they are hideous. She was flying to AMS in August and actually elected to connect through LHR rather than flying direct to AMS--and she was totally happy that she did.

3A on a 764 to LHR versus the hideous 333 angle jobs is the difference between a good nights sleep and not sleeping much at all--well worth having to make the connection in her book (and mine).

Also, the 76Gs (the ex-Gulf babies)--at least in BE--have in-seat IFEs (not overheads). We were on one from MAN to ATL on 25 Sept. At least I'm pretty sure it was a 76G--five rows of BE and no air vents, and a general look of dilapidation.
