They are pretty much the same, although some prefer the bulkhead on one side of them or the other - I know I tend to prefer sitting with it to my right vice left. On the eastbound flights, I recommend A, especially in the summer when the sun comes up really early on the D side of the a/c.

Glad I read this thread. Just changed my seat from 2A to 5D. The only other seat taken was 5A. Must be someone else in the know.

Note I corrected my mistake above. The sun comes up on the D side. Realized it when I reread my post.

+1. I just sat in 1A for a 5-hr flight, and this was my experience as well.

There is only the forward boarding door on the 767-300s. On the 767-400s, there is the choice of two doors, and you are correct, that does vary.

Has anyone recently been on the 767-300 with FC lie flat seating? In June I'm traveling from ATL to SCL and wanted to know if the bulkhead row 1 seats have more legroom/wider foot wells? I saw one mention of it in previous postings but would love to hear other's experiences. I'm currently in 5A but might consider the bulkhead if there is more room and the light and noise from the galley isn't too disturbing.

Fellow FTers,

I know there were some link issues - I think they're all rectified now.

Some have commented that picture links do not work in individual FTer-posted threads. Unfortunately, I cannot manage pics (photobucket, flickr, etc) for other users who may have moved/changed their files.

Thanks for your feedback!

Am flying ATL<-->SCL this August. Trying to figure out which version of the 767-300 this is, and more importantly if this is truly flat-bed seating in F.

Can i assume avod is standard on these planes too?

1-2-1 in Business means it had lie flat seats. All 767s with lie flat J seats have AVOD.

Arrow 757-200ER - 75E - Ex-TWA - Economy Rows 35 and 36

Hi all,

Hello from 35F on the 75E!

Figured I'd share pics!

Row 35 DEF:


35DEF have good recline (comparable to EC) and leg room that is a bit better than regular EC seats IMHO.

There is USB power (currently working!), but no outlet.

These seats have immovable armrests.

35F Leg Room:
Pending

Row 36 DEF:


The leg room for row 36 is very good.

Does the 75V indeed have extra legroom on the A/B side vs the C/D side in F? Only options I have are row 1 or 5 on the A/B side or more options on the C/D side.

Forgot about using Google to search FT rather than the built in search. Seems they do have more legroom according to this post, if it's accurate:
