skycot on 739?

We are flying MSP-PVR on a 737-900, seated on the right (starboard) side bulkhead with a lap infant.

I know DL only offers skycot bassinets on international flights, but my assumption was that DL does not offer them on narrowbody jets. However, I called reservations to confirm, and the agent put me on hold to check and then said that yes, we could have one at our seat; she put a request in, saying we needed to confirm with the gate agent.

Can anyone confirm if this is true? Thanks

There's no hard bulkhead on narrowbody DL aircraft at front of Y cabin. Only F row 1 has a hard bulkhead. Even in F I don't believe they offer them, but there's no physical way for Y cabin on narrowbody DL.

I thought that the 739's do have a hard bulkhead. Did they change that? I'm fairly certain they did when it was first brought into the fleet.

ETA: Yes, there is a coat closet on the starboard side between F and Y.

We were in 739 starboard bulkhead seats yesterday and there is indeed a coat closet (see also Aerolopa). The coat closet is not full width, in-flight entertainment systems for E & F are mounted on the closet, and I don't remember (but could be mistaken!) seeing attachments for a skycot.

I am on a 737-900 as I write this. I can confirm what speede racer is saying. No bulkhead in economy. The right side in comfort plus has a closet with in-flight screens. No room to hang a bassinet. No bulkhead on the left side in comfort plus. Also no hanger hooks on first class bulkheads (either side)

Thank you. I should have clarified that we are seated in the C+ bulkhead on the right side, at the closet.

Thanks all.

FA Here. While there is a hard bulkhead on the 739 @11DEF, there are no bassinets on any of the narrow-bodyfleet.
